Our local subaru dealer is great. Of course, our son plays baseball and basketball with one of the mechanics sons and we are friends with another mechanic. I feel your pain and been where you are though. One time I bought a car an hour and half away because the local dealer couldn't compete. I was real nice with the local salesmen/dealer, giving them the last shot at coming down $1000. They couldn't come down and understood why I drove a little to save a grand.
You could take pictures of the things they say are wrong and ask for removed/replaced parts.
