2013 2.51 Premium Interior Trim Issues

I'd like to ask if anyone else who has a 2013 2.5i Premium Outback is experiencing problems with the trim coverings on the window sills and the front console. It seems that they are not made of very sturdy stuff. They seem to be some sort of thin vinyl covering over some lightweight padding. The net result is that they don't seem to be durable enough to be part of a car that is known as such a "rugged" vehicle. My dogs have torn the console cover and two of the window sill coverings already and I've only had the car for a little over two months and less than 3,000 miles.

This is my first Subaru and I must admit that this is pretty distressing, as I have had many other brands of vehicles and have never experienced this problem.

I plan on writing a letter of complaint to Subaru USA, but wanted to check with you folks first.
