I remember when I frequented the Bolt forum, there was a great deal of disappointment when the '18 Bolts first hit the lots, and the seats seemed to be of the same 'hit or miss' quality. Maybe they just stopped putting the wrong length bolt in the driver's seat, at thigh level...Yes, the front seats are terrible on the '17, esp. if you're a wide person and still not good to me even though I'm not wide (rented one for a day, there were no '18 nor '19 to rent). They improved the seats on '18+ but they're still not great.
Reasonably sure. But yes, after browsing some old Bolt posts for seat comfort fixes (there are too many, I've not had the time to read/digest them all) there are allegations or assertions that the YMMV seat comfort is partly (?) due to quality control issues. I don't recall if that was only on '17 Bolts only or if it stretched on further into '18 or even '19.***UPDATE: General Motors has contacted us regarding these possible changes to the 2019 Bolt. As it turns out, some information from Mike Lelli was likely misinterpreted. For the official record, front seat improvements were made for the Model Year 2018 Bolt and carry over for the 2019 Model Year. As for the suspension, the Bolt does not have a new setup for 2019, though GM says it’s always fine-tuning its products.
The '19 bottom cushion sharply countered/bolstered, which would cause MAJOR probs for wide people. IIRC, it was on '17 Bolt.
I'm still personally looking for solutions that aren't too expensive that hopefully I can try before I buy or easily return. For example, I'm not too keen on paying $90 for https://www.amazon.com/CONFORMAX-Airmax ... B00IKNLZEO if it doesn't help much or at all.
