Hello, I am looking for feedback on an issue that is kind of getting in the way of the purchase. I have been trying to buy a subaru for 15 yrs but I have had a back surgery and i always found the seat was too short and the lumbar was too high up. Luckily i was able to take a longer test drive to see if it would work for me and it never did. Enter the Ascent. This vehicle is perfect. I have dogs and guitars and a lot of stuff I haul around and the seat is fantastic in the limited and the touring and I like the drive way better than the Audi and and the Volvo. Everything works but the passenger seat. I was in shock when my partner drove. The seat was way too low and the seat belt is angled in a way that it constantly pokes into my hip. We both drive and we are buying it with the expectations to travel in it with all our stuff. The outback and the Forester do have adjustable passenger seats but they are too small and dont work. I have called Subaru especially for the seatbelt. This is an issue that several people have noted. I was thinking i could jam something. In there to push the seatbelt into the same position the driver side seat belt is, have not tried that yet and maybe buy a bunch of pillows to raise the sitting height and then try a bunch of after market lumbar pillows but it does seem crazy to have to do this with a 45K vehicle. Subaru thanked me for my input and noted it which is nice but does not really help, especially with the seat belt angle. I did attempt to convince my partner to let me drive all the time but he was really unhappy with that plan or i also can sit. In the back captains seats. they are better but it also would be a drag to have to sit in the back all the time. I. would basically pay what ever upcharge needed to have a comfortable passenger seat with the leg extension and adjustments. Its so good for a long haul. im not sure why they did this. Back surgery is so lousy,. It was a long time ago but i do need a supportive seat for long drives. I want this vehicle but i am not sure how to make It work. do you think that they will add this soon or anyone have any fixes for this?
