    I don't have an answer, but you "love" your touring XT. I am about to order one without test driving it as they have none on the lot. Any opinions how it drives compared to some of the entry level luxury cars like the Volvo S60 or the BMW three series? Thanks much.

    Iceman, i really do like mine and feel its very comparable to some of the known luxury European sedans for fraction of the price.

    Performance is great, Interior design, fit and finish is very nice. comfortable (what sold me).

    For a first generation i think it is well done though the driver awareness and anti collision stuff being put in all cars today, this one included, i'm not a fan of. i do tend to turn off the driver aware feature and have to do every so many cycles. it turns back on so..

    good luck

    I have a 2020 Legacy, too, and it does that to me all the time. I think the reason is that the Driver Monitoring System is unsuccessfully scanning your face when you enter the car, and as such it does not know who you are and can't match you to a profile. At least I think that's what's happening. My Subaru dealer certainly can't tell me.

    I guess that will do it. But that's not fixing anything.
