uncomfortable driver's seat

2013 Chevrolet Malibu LT 4dr Sedan w/1LT (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


I have the LT model with the "upgraded interior", bought in mid-Dec 2012.
I find that I am absolutely unable to get the power driver's seat into a comfortable back position, no matter how I adjust the many electric controls.
The lumbar adjustment is completely crazy.
It sticks out WAY too much, even on the most "reduced" setting.
Otherwise, I have had only 2 issues:
1) Brake lights would not go out after releasing brake pedal because pedal was not coming back up on it's own (needed a new pedal assembly)
2) Steering wheel not centered; wheel was positioned slightly to the right as car was driven straight (needed alignment)

Best Features

Car looks good, decent value for the money. Handles well aslo.

Worst Features

Change the seat supplier or get someone to re-design the seatbacks for more comfort.
