2012 Subaru Outback 2.5i 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


I went from a 2006 Altima to a Subaru Outback wagon.
I loved my altima, hate the subaru.
The ride is horrible.
I recently went on a 2 hour trip and my leg cramped up trying to keep my foot on the gas pedal.
The gas pedal is extremely tiny and high and very hard to depress.
I can't seem to get the seat adjusted to be comfortable and still be able to reach the pedal.
The hard button is smack dab in the middle of the console so you accidently hit it all the time.
Radio controls are also not very user friendly.
My biggest complaint tho is how uncomfortable this car is to drive, especially on long trips.

May I ask if you are male or female and your height? Many times someone shorter, like me at 5'3" have problems with larger vehicles. Thanks
