Could be the seating position? I used to have butt pains because my seat was too far forward and I tended to lean to one side but it was fine after I moved back a bit and corrected my posture.
I don't think there is a right or wrong answer. It's whatever makes you comfortable. You could look up some information of ergonomics to help guide you.I did not get the multi-contour seats, just the standard seats and I believe the 4-way lumbar support (up/down, in/out) powered by what seems to be a little air compressor.
I have tried playing around with the seat. Sitting closer, a bit farther, titling the angle up/down of the seat cushion. It's started to become of of those things that is driving me crazy. He I am with a brand new car awesome and I can't stop messing around with it. I can't tell whether or not the seat should support my calves or not and/or at what angle etc.
I took it on some windy roads during the drive and was very impressed with how it handles. The car really is a beautiful piece of machinery. Happy with everything but the seats.
What is so different between the seats? I find it hard to believe the same brand would have drastically different seats in vehicles that are relatively similar.Just came out of GLK250 into GLE300d and I can say that the seats are much harder to adjust to achieve an acceptable comfort level.
Not sure it is as comfortable as the GLK
I bought the new 2016 GLE 350 SUV, and since buying it, my back is killing me, the back of my legs feel numb and in constant pain, and any adjustment to the seat (pushing it as far back as possible) is now causing severe right knee pain to the point where I can barely walk without pain. Has anyone else experienced this gigantic flaw in Mercedes seats.Sounds like the interior was designed more for the European market. That has me concerned about the GLE Coupe, maybe, just maybe they'll get it right in that.
