You guys seen the other thread about the seating comfort right?
well, i drove 2hr trip, and my asss and back hurt like crap.
FIrst of all, theres not enough cushion supporting my asss. and the same thing to the back.,

Went to autozone to look for seat cushion,but dont think that will help/

Are you kidding me?!

I drove across Canada in mine doing 10 hour driving days straight for 6 days...

My back was in PARADISE!! Lumbar support FTW!!!!! Even my mum's boyfriend who is a bigger guy found the car surprisingly comfortable.

I'm 5'9, 215lbs (damn you, college!), and my seat is pretty damned comfortable. I work offshore and it's a 3 hour drive from home to work, plus the 3 hours back and no issues. My tC on the other hand, right side of my hip/thigh would start to get sore after about an hour and a half.

I've driven six hours straight, felt great after. And at 180 pounds on a six foot frame it's not like I have a lot of natural padding. Some people love the seats, some people hate them :dunno:

I got the leather seats, and use the lumbar support, I'm 5'10'' about 180lbs., and after a 4 hour drive to toronto or waterloo, I find it pretty comfortable. A little stiff when I get out of the car if I haven't pulled over to take a break or something. However, my co-worker find its uncomfortable, he's a bigger guy, not huge, about 6'1'' and 235lbs. He thought his ass was too big for the seats, haha.

I think these seats feel great & I've made several trips of distance including 2 trips back & forth to CMP that is a 6hr drive with no confort issues. I think it just depends on the person's body build, because this is not the 1st thread I've seen of someone complaining about seat comfort issues on long trips. Then again, we bought sports cars with seats designed to hold us in place. If I wanted a truely comfortable road car, I would of bought the Genesis sedan.

DrunkenT, I find that if I forget to take my wallet out of my back pocket before longer trips, the seat does get uncomfortable. Otherwise, it's a nice ride. I think that'll change after the coilovers are installed :rolleyes:

I spend between 1.5 and 3 hours a day in my car, no comfort issues at all. 5'10" 165 / 3.8 GT (leather)

Though I do remove my wallet before getting in the car. If I leave it in my pocket, the seat doesn't deflect, so my ass does instead. :sad:

I've personally never had a problem with the seats, they're really comfy.

Well.. my foot tends to fall asleep after long periods of driving, but thats probably more my fault than the seats.

Hyundai recently replaced my cushion in the chair, I was expecting to have the seat firm like my passenger seat is or like all other genesis coupes I have seen before but the new cushion did not do this.

I have taken a few photos but I know photos do not show how it really is.

As you can see the leather is very loose from the seat having no support and sinking in.

does anyone else's genesis seat look like this? And what should I do? because I am sick of going to the dealer and complaining about it...

They told me they would replace the cushion but not the leather because leather naturally becomes loose, but these pictures were taken around 15000km and no way should any car that cost this much look and feel this bad I pretty much sink in the chair because the leather is not tight like my passenger seat. (I only weigh 160lbs so its not like I am putting abnormal amount of weight onto it.)

Apparently it wont let me add images because I do not have 10 posts on this forum...
