    I am and so is my wife who does daily commutes to the burbs.
    I'm 6'3, and even with the baby seat behind me, i have enough leg room.
    The lumbar support is a beautiful thing.

    I drive 33 miles each way to/from work and I have been very pleased with the ride comfort. It is very easy to get the seat and pedals set to just the right position where my legs and arms are relaxed for the entire journey. And the seat provides great support.

    Re: Long term front seat comfort

    I can't imagine anyone not finding a comfortable seating position. With the lumbar, thigh support and the usual adjustments, there's an infinite variety of positions. One thing I might add too, the head restraints are the perfect distance behind your head. Might sound petty, but I've been in cars where it feels like your head is constantly being pushed forward. When you're in a natural, relaxed state, the SRX head restraint is resting directly on the back of your head. Well designed.

    Now, on the down side. If you're tall, don't expect to be able to fit another tall person in the seat behind you. I'm 6' 4" and drive with the seat bottom all of the way back. My 6' son has to ride behind my wife. I don't know what I'd do if I had to seat "two" tall people in the rear.

    Once I found the correct position , yes. It took a while to find it though.
    The front of the seat lifts & lowers, but your rear end doesn't seem to drop.
    It just seems to go reward. Maybe it's just me..............

    The rectangular shaped horizontal button controls the seat bottom in 3 different ways.

    Front of button -

    Moves the front of the seat bottom up or down.

    Back of button -

    Moves the back of the seat bottom up or down.

    Whole button -

    Moves the entire seat bottom up or down. That is, moves the front and back of the seat bottom simultaneously.

    This will sell many SRX's. A lot of women will like this feature.

    Re: Long term front seat comfort

    hi everyone-
    i'm new to this forum. i've been driving my 2012 srx for a little over 3 months.a good deal of my driving is up and down a steep, curvy mountain road. i'm 6ft 170 lbs. to say i find the driver's seat uncomfortable would be an understatement. it actually causes me leg pain (right leg). i've tried a multitude of adjustments to no avail. the problem seems to stem with the side bolsters and also the hard ridge created by the pullout section. (why cadillac felt the need for a pullout section is beyond my comprehension). i've begun sitting on a pillow... of course the seat heater is ineffective and my head sticks out the sunroof! i am so sorry i traded in my '06 srx. it was extremely comfortable. heck, my 1982 jeep cj5 is more comfortable! is anyone else experiencing leg pain from these seats?

    Re: Long term front seat comfort

    Usually right leg pain is a factor of the accelerator pedal pressure and the foot angle applying the pressure. If you are able to use the cruise control more maybe that will help. also, if you have the adjustable pedals try changing the distance from your seat while on your trip and see if that will relieve some of the discomfort. I have gotten the right leg pain on cars that I like the seats in them. One other thing that contributes to leg pain is the way your right leg fits against the console. I actually added a foam rubber pad to a AC Cobra replica I built because the angle with my leg resting against the console was too much and made my knee joint hurt. A good source for stick on leather covered pads is from football helmet inserts.

    Your trying to tell us that your rear end got a reward? For what?

    Steve I am sure he was referring to "rearward" not reward!

    Marc, I know what he meant. I was just trying to be funny. I guess it fell on deaf ears, except for you. LOL!! Believe it or not, I actually do have a sense of humor.
