Update on bad seats from 4/28/10

2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


I have now had the Legacy for 4 months and about 3000 miles. After $700 spent on 5 trips to an auto upholstery shop for modifications to the driver’s seat, the driver’s seat, while not comfortable, is now tolerable. The adjustable lumbar support works by pushing the foam padding, which is quite rigid, deeper into your back. It is not inflatable as I first thought. I had this seat back foam trimmed and had additional foam in the shape of a wedge and made from softer, less dense foam, added to the seat cushion. I can now drive the car for 2-3 hours without getting a back ache.

Best Features

Solid feel of the car. No rattles, buzzes or squeaks. Roominess, amenities in the interior, all-wheel drive, smoothness, quality of the materials. The CVT sold me on the car.

Worst Features

The sun visors are too thick and the garage door remote won't fit on it. Please make the visors thinner. The auto dimming rear view mirror does not get dark enough. Get rid of the "fuel mileage" gauge and put in some meaningful gauges.
