Great car but a minor problem. I'm 6'2" and the top of the driver's seat sits across the midpoint of my shoulder blades. It's uncomfortable after 15-20 minutes. I've talked to dealer, visited Subaru website, tried homemade cushions (towel, foam, etc., can't find good commercial cushion) but no luck. Any body know of a solution? Thanks!

SHort of a set of Riccaro bucket seats I cant think of any. If the car wasnt new and under warrentee i could possibly suggestmaking some brackets made to raise the seat back higher, but I am not sure how that would effect crash worthyness and the reclining function.

Some soobs have a seat base adjustment/thigh support. I'm not familiar with the Forester and I'm sure you know your car - but just in case, make sure another driver hasn't mis adjusted the control if your car is so equipped.

just a suggestion
