Mary Barra/GM will do nothing until we, the consumers, mount a bad media campaign so effective that GM will feel it; let everyone know NOT to buy Bolt because of its poorly designed front bucket seats.
That is the only way to get the GM behemoth and Mary Barra to take notice and actually consider recall/replacement of these awful seats. The last thing GM wants is BAD PUBLICITY about their Bolt baby.
We have heard enough about the seats. They are trash. They hurt most people's backs and butts.
I challenge you to start your campaign. TODAY!
Not all of us think the seats are BAD. I like the seats just fine and so do others.
I won't question those who find them uncomfortable. If they feel uncomfortable to others, that's their reality but to suggest a boycott of the car because of the seats isn't necessary.
You certainly can advise people to be aware of the controversy over the seats and warn potential buyers to to make sure that the seats are comfortable enough for them before they actually lease or buy the car but a boycott really isn't warranted.
As for a recall, that's not likely either. Recalls are generally required when there are safety issues involved. While the seats are uncomfortable to some, there is no indication that they are unsafe. So, I think you're off-base there as well.
But, if that's how strongly you feel, go at it. Ask for a boycott and a recall Just don't distort the "facts" to fit your perception of the "problem."
NO FAKE NEWS!!!
