That's good information. It seems like Subaru has addressed a problem some people seem to have had.
I came across this in my 2015's Owner's manual while looking for something else:
They don't make clear whether it's the vehicle's battery or the fob's battery that warning pertains to. It's anecdotal, but being more careful to keep the keyless fob well away from the vehicle when not in use seems to have helped some who experienced dead car battery issues, at least before the '19s. As I said earlier, not leaving the fob in the car may solve ausdland's issue with his '18 with minimal effort.
Why would anyone leave a key in the car? Do you leave your wallet there as well?
IMO, that is just inviting trouble even with an attached garage. In my case, I have a lockable detached garage with motion exterior lights and wanted security to be a bit higher.
