Question Fold down rear seat in new Legs?

Anyone know if the rear seat folds down? 60/40? They did on my 98 GT, this is a key feature for us.

Thanks.

Apparently Subaru didn't think enough of it. Or they didn't care that you and everybody wants that feature.

Why do many other sedans have it?
Many other sedans that are identified by magazines as having stiff body/chasis have the fold down rear seats.

I'm guessing Subaru will change this in a few years when they get marketing responses back, stating that people didn't buy the Legacy because of such major shortcomings. Lack of telescoping steering wheel, and lack of front seat legroom length are other major shortcomings. Don't even get me started on the lack of the Navigation system; at least thats only missing on the North American cars.

Yea.. Disapointed in that... it makes that Console on the dash in the New Legacy look odd.. Because for one thing it's a little to deep to store stuff for me.
