It's not a quality control issue, rather, it is a seat design issue. Specifically, the plastic seat frame was poorly designed.
I'm 6'2", 210 lbs. I also found the front seat to be problematic. Decent comfort when butt in middle of seat cushion, legs straight forward. But when sitting off center, the poorly placed hard plastic seat frame at the side of the cushion can become a intrusive to the point of being a bothersome distraction. The experience is reminiscent of Hans Christian Andersen's princess who can't sleep because there is a pea under the mattress. Soft comfort interrupted by hard reality.
GM, the Bolt is a great car. Too great to allow this annoyance to be ignored. Fix it!
