So here's my issue, I have a 2012 SRX luxurary trim and I really love this car, with the exception that my wife finds the seats to firm. I don't necessaryily agree with her, but would like for her to be comfortable. Have any of you had similar issues or feel the seats are a bit to firm, and if so have you been able to soften the leather, or even found a good and attractive seat cushion add on..

You can't soften leather, and that's not the problem anyway. Aside from having an upholstery shop replicate your seat foam with a softer foam, a cushion is the way to go. There are all different shapes, sizes and materials. A cheap, flat foam cushion will make the seat feel a it softer, without adding much in the way of height/bulk.
I have the Recaro seats in my CTS Wagon and they are definitely firm, especially for the wife. We bought a square of Memory Foam and cut it to size. Then the wife covered with a interior matching fabric. It blends in and looks good and rises the comfort level.
