Front seat causes "unable to drive" pain due metal bar on the bottom cushion
The purchase of a Tesla turns out for me to be the worse mistake I've ever done.
The front seat is causing me so much that driving became a torcher.
The issue with the seat is the metal bar in the middle of bottom cushion pushing really hard. (imagine you're seating on the metal bar and driving)
Apparently, that is a common problem for people that weights more than 210lb and taller the 6 feet.
I took it to a Tesla service.
They replaced the seat.
1 week later the same problem.
Now they are making a big deal to replace it again, and they emphasize that is will be last time they replace the seat since it's very expensive (and it took 2 months of talking them into it)
I took it to an upholstery professional shop, and after reviewing the seat the pro was amazed how little of spring on the bottom they put, the number of springs and the amount of foam padding is not enough to support my weight, that is why my bottom falls down and I start to feel the support metal bar.
At this point, Tesla is not giving me a single option.
Please, any ideas? I cannot believe that I came from a car of my dream to a torcher and pain caused by Tesla for 32 more months?
This is a cry for help. Please help!
