I noticed some hamstring issues on my two-hour drive home from the dealer -- not pain; more like fatigue. I tried all sorts of seat positions and heights to no avail. Finally, I tilted the front edge of the seat up a bit and it was perfect. I have been comfy ever since. As a side note, I'm 5'2" and the fatigue was not in my sitting-on-a-wallet area; it was midway down the back of my thigh.
I came from a Honda also; my CRV driver's seat was manually operated so had limited variables. The Outback has unlimited variables for the seat position so I suspect it just takes endless fiddling to find the right spot for you. Boy, I sure wish the power seats had 2 memory settings.
Good luck with it!
