#6 of 7 Long distance discomfort
Oct 01, 2012 (11:06 am)
Response to my own question here.
We test drove a used 2009 XT, leather seats with lumbar support. In five minutes I knew I would be writhing and uncomfortable after half an hour. The salesman said those seats were basically what was in the newer models as well. Just not my body geometry.
We also noted that this thing was not a quiet car. Our current ride, a 2002 Mazda MPV, is quieter for road noise and engine noise. Also drove an Outback and athough it was quieter we also found the seats not quite there for us.
Back to reinvestigating possible cars. Next up: Acura MDX.
Thanks for the helpful comments.

we have a 2009 with cloth seats and find them very comfortable. we specifically chose the cloth seats since we found the leather to be uncomfortable: cold in the winter, hot in the summer and less pliable than cloth.
