Legacy Short Seat fix?
 
Has anyone figured a way to add an inch or two to the lip of the Legacy seats? On extended trips, seat lip rests too far back on thigh back. Probably a dumb question, but thought I'd ask. :confused: Thanks.

I agree with this.

Obviously no there is no way unless you want to completely customize the cushion and interior structure of the seat.

Recaro is an option.

I gain a little room when I adjust my lumbar support. I'm 6'2" so I know what your talkin about.

short seat
 
This has been a issue with Subaru forever! I am on my third Subie and I am 6' 3"+ and have had this issue with each one.

I was at the NY Auto show several years ago and got into a big discussion with one of the Subaru designers about the seats. However, once I started telling him how the seats are a little short (don't fit us plus size Americans) I think he stopped understanding me.

Yep, at 6'4" I know how you feel.

My headrest is fully extended as well.. and my knees are about 1/2" away from the plastic panels.. probably not the safest in a collision.

With your seat all the way back?? im 6'1" and I look like a child sitting in the seat if it's all the way back..

EDIT: ok I lied.. I put mine all the way back and Im still pretty close ~4" I could see how a 6'4" guy could be close to the dash.
