Same problem on my mother in law's 98 Legacy Outback, even the engine has been warmed up and the coolant temp is in the normal range already, the heat is still just "warm" not even warm enough that we have to wear lots of jackets.

Maybe it's Subaru's nature, coz my friend's parent's subaru also not getting enough heat at all.

Maybe the thermostat is too lazy to open.

thermostat - a good thing to do is have that replaced with the timing belt as they are right in the same spot. It is only like 10-15 bucks for a new one so it is well worth it. Both of my previous Subies ran into the same problem easily fixed by the thermostat. Good luck!

is that happening to your 04 - if so, aren't you still under warranty? Bring it in and have them check it out for you
