I’m a pretty short guy (5’6”), so I’ve got to jack the driver’s seat up pretty high to find the right driving position. I’ve got a few visual and physical reference points so that I know where the seat should be positioned, but it seems like every other day or so, I’m having to use the height adjustment to raise the seat back up.

At first I was thinking it might just be bad posture/me slouching or something, but I’ve been making a conscious effort to pay attention to how I’m sitting for the past week or so. At this point, I am pretty much convinced that my seat is slowing lowering on its own as I drive.

Has anyone else noticed anything similar?

Maybe it's a "Ghost?"

LMAO!!:p:grin:

No I haven't but depending where you place the seat forward and aft will make a difference in the height. If you don't put the seat in the same forward location it will actually be lower as the angle decreases towards the rear slide.

Lol. I feel the same way too I’m 5’5’”. I also find myself re adjusting my seat height. Seems like it’s going down.

The seats appear kind of narrow. Has anybody experienced the seats kind of adjusting to your body a bit? I'm 6'2 and 200 pounds and not gigantic, but obviously not petite. I need to make sure the seats will eventually be comfortable. I've tried seats out at dealer and noticed they pinch me around my thigh. Anybody else experience this? Thanks!

How is the seat height adjusted? Spring loaded with a ratcheting mechanism similar to the seat back, or is it some sort of air cushion that pumps up/down?


I generally set mine on the floor because I'm 6'2" and like to be as low as I can, but I can see the frustration if it looses height.
Could always get a tape measure and write down it at the "right" height and see if it does sink overnight.

I'm sure the foam is softening to some extent. Had my VN for about 2 weeks and it definitely feels different. At first it was kind of annoying to use the clutch because I could feel the edge of the seat pushing on the back of my thigh with the clutch pushed all the way in. Now it feels way softer.

This occurred in my Jeep Wrangler all the time and it was driving me nuts! What I discovered was the seat adjuster's position along the seat was being pushed down slightly as I exited the Jeep. It was lifted and as I slid out my body weight compressed the seat enough for my left thigh to push the lever down slightly. I ended up buying a second lever and cutting the handle off and reinstalled it. It never happened again. This car is low and I drive with the seat slammed so I don't experience that, but if you're sliding out you may be pushing that lever down. Just a thought.

Definitely happens to me too, OP. I like driving one lever adjustment from the full bottom position, and it never sticks. Every time I get in the car I get the feeling of the seat front digging into my thigh when I use the clutch and it reminds me to adjust it again. When it happens I know it has bottomed out because pushing the lever down is impossible. So it's not the seat foam, it's the mechanism.

Haven't figured out why, but I'll try and observe the way I get in and out of the car to see if I'm accidentally pushing it.
