: 3rd row seat question



kru

The 3rd row seat on my new (to me) 2006 doesn't fold down all the way. Dealer says it's not supposed to but it looks like it should to me. It comes about 4-5 inches from laying flat and it appears that there is room for it to go all the way down. The result is a hump in the cargo area.

So I ask, is this normal? In pictures, it appears that the cargo area is flat with the 3rd row down. Is this an optical illusion? My dealer acknowledged that they've sold very few of the SRX's and he didn't seem absolutely certain about what he was saying...

Thanks.

My new 2007 folds down completely flush ..... go back to the dealer and tell him he doesn't know $hit about the car he sells then take it to a more "reputable" one for repair.

I made an outdoor carpet cover for the 07. Looks pretty flat.

The third row on my 05 folds completely flat. The second row does maintain a slight incline toward the front, but not much.

Mine folds completely flat (06). So should yours. One time the seat belt buckle got caught in between the seat and the side -- it stopped the seat from folding flat -- you may want to check that??

I have the same vehicle as you. My 3rd row seat lays flat.

Come on KRU - just post and tell us the dealer fixed your third row seat so this thread can end. :)

We all know for sure, 100%, that KRU's third row was not operating properly and the third row in all year SRXs folds completely flat.

It's due to be looked at (again) tomorrow. I will update this thread with the results so we can put it to bed.

Go to Cadillac.com and see the SRX video on the seating, it says "third row folds flat" and shows it down flat.
Get a brochure from the showroom that promotes the fold flat third row and show it to the service dept.
Sounds like another case of the "left" hand not knowing what the "left" hand is doing!

Wow. This has been eating at you for a long time...

It was obvious from all the posts that it is supposed to fold flat. I told them so and they looked at it again. There was a problem with the motor and they had to order parts. It has been fixed. I still hate how you have to operate it and how damn long it takes to fold flat but at least it DOES fold flat.

Are you with GM Customer Service or something... :)

LOL - I guess I just like closure.... and could not believe the bunk your dealer was feeding you. Glad all is good now. And yes, the seat is painfully slow. I would have preferred that it simply be fold flat but manual.
