My Vehicle: 2014 XV Crosstrek Limited CVT (ISM)
Default Sliding console cover

Is anyone else having problems with their sliding console cover being so loose it almost slides on its own? It seems mine is really loose especially when the car has sat in the heat all day. Plus, if I'm driving with my arm on it, it will slide forward with the least amount of pressure on it. I've looked at it but don't see any way of making it tighter. It's so bad that I'm actually thinking of locating a non-slider cover and swapping them.

Yup. The design is not the best. I'll be looking at adding a friction type device to mine to help.

Try a bit of Velcro--just use the fuzzy half for both sides.

Ive always hated the sliding armrest. My passengers pull it out all the time and now its all loose.
Is there a version that is non-sliding? Perhaps that is a direct swap from an impreza?

If you have ever driven an '11 Impreza, this one is a huge improvement over the old design. Not that this helps at all....

Do the 2016/2017 Crosstrek's have a sliding arm rest? I've been considering this vehicle for about a year and all the video's and research I've done indicate the 16/17 Crosstrek's don't have the sliding armrest. Thank you all.

I can confirm the 2016 models do have it. I like mine too, hasn't been a problem.

Only time I've ever had an issue is when my dog tries placing a paw on there when driving. He immediately forces it forward. Lol.
