2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: Loose Driver Seat

August 29, 2013

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster

We've now driven our beloved Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster about 15,000 miles since December and a small problem has come up. Its driver seat has become a bit loose in its mounts. It isn't a big deal, but you can feel it when you're driving the car.

Accelerate and the seat rocks back. Brake and it rocks forward. Not much, the play is maybe a quarter of an inch or less, but it's certainly something we'll have addressed when we take the Benz in for its 30,000-mile scheduled maintenance.
