    Has anyone cross referenced these issues as to whether they are more common to the 10-way or the 6-way adjustable seat?

    Re: Loose drivers seat

    I've also noticed that the driver seat shifts slightly and makes a click noise sometimes during hard turns. It's happened since I bought the car car ~3 weeks ago. I have the 10 way seat.

    Cherasad,

    I do agree that it does take the excitement out of driving this beauty. Again I will be bringing my car into service maybe next week or latest the week after. I feel confident that this will be resolved and any and all info I get I will pass along to you personally !!! I still love driving the car and when fixed it will be like reuniting with an old flame, LOL even thou I'm married !!!!

    Well I have an appointment next Wednesday and will let you know what the deal is. The salesman said the issue "might" be the vibration sensors under the seat. Will soon find out and will post the results.

    Re: Loose drivers seat

    I have the same issue, 2.0T with 10 way seats, started to experience it immediately after delivery. Dealer said they've heard about it quite a bit. I'm confident they'll be able to address it when I take it in for it's first service appointment. I'll post an update after that...

    Re: Loose drivers seat

    Interestingly enough, the loaner ATS I am in right now does not have the seat issue... At least not that I can feel... Has the same seats mine does (Premium)...

    However, the car is not in the shop to get the seat fixed as I am waiting for someone to figure out the solution!

    Re: Loose drivers seat

    I had a dealer loaner 2.5 ATS w/o the safety alert seat that didn't do it... and right now I'm driving a cheap Chrysler 200 rental that doesn't do it. Sad that I even think about it when I corner while driving another car, even a low end rental.

    Re: Loose drivers seat

    My wife was driving this weekend and while sitting in the passenger seat, I noticed it moves just as much as the drivers seat. Premium trim.

    Re: Loose drivers seat

    It's getting progressively worse. If I am doing anything other than going straight I feel the seat shift; and in a new twist the seats are starting to sound "crunchy," as if whatever the cushion is made out of is drying out. I wonder what temps and for what length of time the material was tested as it has been in the upper 80's and 90's for the last few days. I am beginning to get very worried about this.

    Re: Loose drivers seat

    Here with an update:

    After 2 calls to the Cadillac Customer Service 1-800#, I had the dealership contact me with what they hoped might be a solution. They invited me down to the dealership and picked out a new ATS for me to drive for an hour. Their plan was to have me identify a seat in another car that did not shift and have that exact seat swapped in for my shifting seat. They accomplished this in 2 days, as they had to glue down carpet that had tented up under the passenger seat and impossibly made it through GM's less-than-extensive (apparently) QA/QC line.

    So far, and its been a week, there is NO lateral movement and the only movement at all is just in the extender part of the seat I have mine fully extended), and this is very minor and seems normal.

    Further discussion with my Service Manager led me to believe this is now a well documented problem and he feels GM will be providing a SB in the near future. In the meantime, am keeping fingers crossed that my replacement seat was an adequate band-aid.

    Good luck all!
