Well, I finally got around to adding some padding to my Bolt seats (bottom padding, the back is fine for me).
I was in an Ace Hardware and saw a gardening kneeling pad that was square (instead of the rectangles I usually see) and it looked about seat size, so it reminded me of it. I got 2 of them (about $15 for the pair).
I had some regular seat cushions before, and they helped a bit, but I was always planning to get around to adding some padding to see how it worked.
My theory about using the square cushion didn't totally work out, because there is a wire (for the heated seats I would imagine) right in the middle. So I cut the cushions in half.
Removing the clips holding down the seat took a bit of time, but with patience, wasn't too bad.
Wrangling them in was a bit awkward. Took me probably 30 minutes per seat trying to be cautious. Hands scraped up a bit, but not too bad.
Replacing the clips was much easier than removing them.
And the result?
Wow. Much nicer... My wife and I went for a drive and it was noticeably better.
I'd recommend it if you think the seats are a bit uncomfortable.
I was thinking tho, it's too bad that GM doesn't offer this as a service/option/upgrade.
I mean, I paid $15 for the pads and then spent an hour adding them in.
If that was an "option" that GM could offer for $50-$100? At $50, I probably would have done that.. At $100? Maybe.. I know some people spent much more to have an upholstery shop do it.
People keep talking about dealerships losing money because EVs don't have as much maintenance, but this type of option (factory approved) would be something that I think some people would go for...
Just a thought...
