No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Subaru reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Subaru Forester 2000: Slips while accelerating
It’s possibly worn out and in need of replacing.
Subaru Forester 2010: Transmission problems
Switching the transmission and ECU clearly hasn’t fixed the problem, so look at sensors in the system, the wiring harness, and connections. I would suggest you take it to a Subaru dealer or an auto transmission and have them check it for you.
Subaru Forester 2019: Would luggage be thrown forward in an accident?
The cargo cover will certainly help to restrain the luggage in the event of a crash, but it probably wouldn’t stop it altogether in a major altercation. A proper cargo barrier behind the rear seat would be more effective.

Subaru Impreza 2011: Fitting out exhaust, custom lights and body kit

Subaru tells you it's ok, I would accept their advice.
Subaru Impreza 2017: Window suddenly shattered
If you've got dash cam footage that conclusively shows the breakage wasn't caused by some external impact I would say, yes, pursue it. But if there weren't conclusive proof that it wasn't caused by an object impacting the glass I wouldn't go any further.
