Re: XTS Seats
Having discovered the problem with seats before buying the car, in my case the seat issue is going to keep me from getting an XTS. It's too bad, I love that car, it's like it was made specifically for me. But a car my wife can't sit in without pain isn't acceptable.
We did try getting a custom cushion made, and that helped considerably. But then we discovered that GM cars do not detect someone in the passenger seat if they are sitting on a cushion. When my wife sits on a cushion, the passenger side airbag is disabled!
So custom cushions might help those with hip pain that are driving the car, but they won't help those that are passangers.

My wife and I find that the seats and the ride in our 2014 XTS is much more comfortable than we experienced in our 2012 coupe and 2010 CTS 4 dr. We just drove 1300 mi from Miami to PA and it was such a positive difference between the other two vehicles.
