Servicable car if you like the Seat

I have a long commute every day to work (85 miles one way) and have spent a great deal of time in this car. After only approx. 11+ months of ownership I am thinking about selling this vehicle. The lumbar support/active head restraint systems have created a seat that becomes extremely uncomfortable after a nominal drive, to the point of back pain. The gas mileage has been better than advertised (I get 27-28 vs 25). The aux jack is not in a great location (center console). The car always feels heavy and loses momentum quickly. The steering is crisp and the cabin is spacious. Exterior won't win any beauty contests and the dash is not pretty but overall a workhorse type car.
monochromatic rear view mirror. Oil life gauge and maintenance-minder. large trunk.
add a gear to the manual. Add more cushion to the seat and use a non-deformed human back as the standard when developing the ergonomics of the seat! Rework the dash and the radio display is slightly chintzy. Nose of car needs face lift/redesign
