I am a new owner for the car

Transmission is not working, warranty company says it is not coverd because failure probably causes by line failure from rust. I am wondering why this happen on a subaru with only 77K miles on it.

If I move steering wheel position and restart (can take ten tries), will eventually go into gear and drive fine. Have had 'brake start selenoid'(I believe that is what it is called-not mechanic) replaced twice in past for same issue, but without ABS and traction control light coming on. Any ideas?

I would like to install fog lights in my 2010 Impreza 2.5i because of course the base model does not come with them. Can anyone tell me what the process is to installing/ordering them. Do I need a kit or just the lights themselves and price on this. Also, does a toggle need to manually installed or do the fogs come on automatically when the headlights are on. Any feedback is welcome! Thanks.

I have a 2010 Subaru Impreza 2.5i premium 5 door, 5 speed with 8k mls on it. The car runs well and does not have any check engine lights on but there is a slight intermittent knock when switching gears and staring off in first. I was told by my Subaru service manager that the car only needs 87 octane and that I can experience occasional knock and that it is normal. I have been driving manuals for 25 years (both foreign and domestic) and never had this happen. Is this an issue I should push with the dealer and will it eventually destroy my engine? I was hoping to get at least 200k mls out of this car.
