I had this same thought, how it got missed. The only thing that comes to mind, is taking delivery after dark, in not-so-great lighting, and the delivery process, including the walk-around, not being very thorough. It's pretty obvious looking in the pic, to me, but the angle-thing can be deceiving, if it's not very deep, IME.My thought is why was this not addressed by someone prior to delivery if it was so obvious? I am not looking to assign blame here, I am also wondering why this is only being noticed after delivery?
I am 100% in favor of complaining about this to the dealership and Subaru corporate, but I do find it bizarre that it was only noticed after delivery. If anyone had known about it and it was delivered anyway, there is all sorts of wrong in this.
When it was all said/done, on my paint fix (the heat/move thing), it was only a couple of hundred bucks, but that was back in 98...
