I have the same problem with the seat on my 2009 forester and the dealer could not find anything wrong, he suggested it was happening on entrance and exiting. i did not believe it, but i have been testing his theory by raising the seat up all the way on entering then checking it after i make a drive and the seat has not moved, after exiting and entering again i find the seat a bit lower, so again i raise it up to highest level and drive again. it has not yet lowered by driving only exit and enter, so i have to believe the dealer mechanic, but it is maddening. i believe to 2010 x premiums now have power seats, maybe this has resolved the problem.
