problem #2

May 302017

Elantra VE 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150 miles


The seats in this car are extremely uncomfortable. They are very poorly designed. According to my chiropractor, seats should allow for a position that puts your hips even or higher than your knees. These seats keep your knees higher than your hips at their lowest setting. The shape is built into the bottom cushion. They are kind of like a narrow Adirondack chair made out of cement. I have the 10 way adjustable seats and there is not any position that does not leave your knees significantly higher than your hips. In addition they are hard as a rock which doesn't allow you to sink into them to compensate for their shape. I can't ride in this car for more than about 10 minutes before I begin to experience pinching sensation in my buttocks and after about 30 minutes I'm in pain and have to get out and stretch. I've tried dozens of different cushions to try to compensate, but they just flatten out, and because of the shape of the seat bottom it is impossible to find a cushion that fits well anyway. Be sure and drive this car at least a good hour before buying to be sure that you can tolerate these seats. The issues is not obvious from a short test drive.

Elantra SE 2.0L I4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56 miles

The seats look awesome, but as I drove it for more than 15 minutes, I noticed my back getting sore. Little did I realize that there is no lumbar support on this trim. I checked and sure enough... not included on ANY of the SE trim packages. It is ONLY included on the vastly expensive Limited and also the GT with package 'Value'.

Seems silly to not have that on every trim. Now I have to find some ugly, cumbersome lumbar pillow to wrap around the seat. Otherwise, I love the car.
