    Loose drivers seat

    The drivers seat on my ATS shifts slightly going around curves and corners. Not as if its not secured to the car, but the actual padded bottom
    portion moves. It's getting worse. Have any of you experienced this and reported it to the dealer? Was the issue fixed?

    Re: Loose drivers seat

    not to be offensive, how much do you weigh? are you like 6' 6" and center of gravity higher. Does it seem that the seat bottom is coming apart?

    I've seen a couple of other owners mention this I believe on another Cadillac forum.

    Re: Loose drivers seat

    I have it as well. I took and inspection mirror and a flashlight under the seat and can't see anything loose. Must be something internal to the seat. I'll have it looked at when I get a few more niggles. Front left TMPS sensor is off by 6 psi compared to the other 3 and a hand gauge.

    5' 10'' and my seat moves as well. It doesn't move a lot it feels like the center cushion part is moving and maybe not the whole seat.

    Has anyone brought this to the attention of the dealer? If so, what was the result?

    Re: Loose drivers seat

    I have the loose seat as well and I am weighing in at a paltry 163. Is there any way to find if there is a TSB on this issue?

    KATIE - I'd give you my VIN but it is not going to tell you anything about my seat so let's not bother to go down that road. Katie: what would be best is to alert GM about the fact that several members noted the issue and likely many more aren't online or don't care. Clearly, there is an issue.

    Hey guys,

    5'10" and 170lbs. I have been noticing this too. I was not sure what it was until it has been brought up here. Same symptoms as others. When I take her in to the dealership
    for a oil change, I will get them to check it out.

    All, I had this problem and reported it to my dealership. It took two tries, but they did get it fixed. I wish they would have told me what the problem was, but the didn't.

    Re: Loose drivers seat

    when I brought my car in for the update and first oil change (which was a terrible experience) I told them about the seat. At first they said they checked everything and said it was fine. I insisted they have a tech take it for a ride around some turns so he could feel what I am talking about. The service guy says, "Our service manager feels what you are talking about but its not the seat. It seems like just the foam cushion is shifting a little" as if that's totally fine and normal. I was like, "I don't really care what is moving but the fact that it's moving. It needs to be fixed." He said he would look into it and call me back if they had a fix. So I drove off the dealership and I swear it was worse than it ever was. Not only could you feel it moving but now it was making creaking noises around every slight turn. It is driving me crazy!

    Yes I have been experiencing this same issue since the second week of owning the car. I thought it was just me because I am a 6ft 200 lbs plus guy. I did notice that the whole seat does not move only the bottom portion slightly moves and makes a dull clicking noise. I just received my notice to have my CUE system updated. I will make sure to bring this issue up as well as the paint protection application i purchased when i bought the car not preventing stains to the paint. Still love the car but I could have saved some money on the zylon or whatever it is called.
