I tried the solution from that thread, and it worked as long as the car was powered up (ACC, Run), but the dinging was back the next day. It's likely Subaru or the DOT got wind of the workaround and added a reset to the code. Now it will work for a service tech or hobby mechanic during a session, but won't stay turned off.

I did it to my 2016 within the first month of ownership, and it hasn't come back. I would try again. Sounds like it just didn't take. It's very particular about all of the steps being followed to the T.

Do people still drive without wearing a seatbelt?
I regularly drive my car without leaving the neighborhood, speeds not exceeding 10-15mph. No need for a belt in this situation, but also don't want to listen to the chime screaming at me. Any time I leave the neighborhood I of course wear my seatbelt.

Also, if you're surf fishing and are driving up and down the beach looking for a good hole... no need to buckle up. There are those rare situations...

This was me all the time in our last neighborhood (short, private, dead end roads). And from time to time I'd even let our 8yo son hold the wheel of the car (that he'll one day own) cruising 6-8 doors down to the neighbors' houses. I'm a horrible parent... yes, I know.
