Thanks for the reply.
I'm drive the CX, which has the 17" wheels. Since one of the selling features was the quiet ride, I would've thought the tire noice would've been less then it is. Not overly complaining, just expressing my thoughts.

I have to agree on noise.
It seems that they are actually moving away from comfort in many areas. Example, steering wheel. Older vehicles had a rubberized fabric device in the steering shaft before reaching the power steering unit. It was called a coupler, but was actually a de-coupler, an isolator for all those annoying vibrations and noises conducted to the steering wheel. Has GM not heard of carpal tunnel or other problems created by such?
And rake designs of columns are not near as comfortable as a true tilt.
I guess I am complaining.
I have learned that whatever supports the bottom of the seat is springy. That is I actually bounce on it with the bumps. Very little padding. Sort of like riding on an old horse drawn wagon where they used double leaf springs to absorb some of the jolts. That was before the day of shock absorbers giving a pretty good bounce. That seems to be the design of these seats, and it does not seem to matter whether you have the cooled seats or not. It seems they used the same seat for both, in leather at least.
