It sure looks like salt. Anyone that has it and is wondering, just taste a little of it to see. It's rock salt, a lick wont kill you. If it is indeed salt as it seems, and it were me, I wouldn't settle the matter until it was no longer getting in there. Its not just messy, its going to cause serious problems down the road. Other than the obvious problems with salt and rust, think about everything in the door. Window motors, switches will corrode, even the mechanism that works the door handles could be damaged. Sounds like a SERIOUS problem to me. I'm shocked at the reaction Subaru seems to have about this...watch for "body integrity" scores to plummet in CR....
