Chevy Traverse’s driver’s seat — so uncomfortable!

2019 Chevy Traverse Lt Most uncomfortable driver’s seat I have ever had in a car. I am thinking about selling the car it is so uncomfortable for short or long travel.

How long was your test drive? I discovered that in five minutes of test driving a Saturn.

Go ahead and sell it. It won’t get better. Take the next car you buy on a long test drive or even rent one so you know the seat is comfortable for YOU before you buy the car.

Have you tried all possible adjustments? How about various cushions sold for this purpose? You will take a major hit in depreciation if you sell.

and make sure it’s the same trim level as the one you want to buy…sometimes things such as lumbar support availability changes between trim levels

It’s not just the availability of lumbar support.
With some makes/models, the entire seat structure on the upper-end trim lines is different from the seat structure of the strip-o trim line.

+1 to that! When we bought our Audi A4 hit had to be the S-Line. The seats looked identical but did not sit identically.
