Hmm... are the seats really that bad? I find the seats pretty ergonomic and comfortable. Sure, they aren't as cushy as other models that cost 10K more, but maybe that's exactly it...they wanted to keep the costs down. But, in my opinion, it is certainly not enough to whine about. I don't find any common shortcomings of this car to bother me at all. In fact, I think they are a bit nit picky; just looking for any reason to say anything negative.
