I own the Equus Signature and find the front seats very UNCOMFORTABLE. There is something bizarre about the way the seat is padded or strung. It is actually painful on my bum. I feel like I am on a bleacher with no padding or some odd kind of sling. I have 4 other cars right now, and I just sat in all of them.No problems at all. I get in the Equus and -BAM- bum discomfort. I cannot tell if this is lack of padding or hitting the frame rails. I am 6'0", 230#. The most significant thing is that I have never had any trouble in any other car/minivan/truck or sports car. I am not talking about seat geometry or angle. I am talking simply physics of a backside on a cushion. There is something really wrong here. I am never buying a Lexus, so get that out of your heads. I don't drink cool-aid and I intensely dislike Toyota and Toyota owners. I could really use a fix here. If I can't make this Equus work, I am out of luck. I will never own another MB, too unreliable. Same for BMW. No Toyota or Datsun (yeah-Datsun). What's left? HYUNDAI ARE YOU LISTENING?Report it
Not sure on two accounts. I found the front seat one of the most comfortable i have ever sat in. The cool butt only enhances that as well. The lumbar pressure ball makes for a nice option when driving long distance. Additionally, I have the 2011 ultimate and the blue tooth is working for me and have used it several times.Report it
Something wrong here. I smell something-- are we in Denmark? I have owned many cars in my 82 years- and there is nothing wrong with these seats. The most comfortable I have ever had was my Phaeton W12. These are close. With all the adjustments, I simply don't understand this comment. I have had 2 back surgeries and some arthritis at the moment, so I am easily turned off by bad seats.Report it
This is definitely a lexus salesman. His stating that the seats were not modifiable is a complete scam. My dad has driven long distances in this car, and did not have a problem. His chauffeur drives it all day long for my parents and does not have a problem.Report it
