So Australia's adjustable passenger seat is really just our driver's seat. Sounds like an easy to do "Premium" content option for SOA to offer their driver's seat as our adjustable passenger seat. The mind just boggles at the obvious. Come on SOA, charge us for it. That low introductory price of the 2009 Forester was bound to go up anyway.
