Review of the 2004 Subaru Legacy

  • Less expensive than a Volkswagen Passat and more refined than domestic offerings, the Legacy sedan and wagon offer a winter-friendly package for those who don't have large amounts of people and cargo to haul.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Don't have to pay extra for all-wheel drive, generous standard equipment list, available as a sedan or a wagon, costs less than many European competitors, tight build quality.

  • Cons

    Side airbags available only on GT models, smaller backseat than most competitors, no six-cylinder engine offered.

  • What's New for 2004

Driver's seat is uncomfortable

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Subaru Legacy L 35th Anniversary Edition AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

We have the 35th Anniv Edition-L model. The dual sunroofs are great. I love the car..so far, so good for me. The problem is that my husband finds the front driver's seat very uncomfortable during a long ride. We've tried different cushions, now we're trying it without the cushions. There should be lumbar support. He has wide shoulders, and the bolstered seat is snug on him.He's only 5'8" and the seat bothers his legs also. After driving larger cars (like Ford Taurus) the driving area does seem compact. People advise him that over time he'll get used to it..we'll see. So in the meantime, I can do the driving and enjoy it!

The answer to this question apparently has been addressed in this forum and a search says that a procedure to adjust the window angle has been posted. Unfortunately I haven't been able to locate it....
