Thanks for the help! We actually bough the car in March of last year, so it was doing it in the warmer weather as well. So who knows :)

At my shop a whole lot of my customers have Subarus and every single one of them sounds the same. They all sound like the have engine knock from the factory. But thats just the way they are. New and old all of them Ive heard the same noise.
