Re: 2nd test drive of Overland today, one problem arose

Last month I spent exactly 34 hours spread over a 5-day trip to Quebec City, Montreal and Ottawa. (over 2300 kilometers). Sometimes 8 hours at a time.
I'd get out of the vehicle and not even need a stretch. Awesome seats.

Yes, their firm, but thats what you want for long trips.
I have the Overland with the Leather if that makes any difference.
I find the lumbar way to hard and uncomfortable so I have it right in.(back)

Agree with the original post. I had my forward 1/3 seat bottom "stuffed" by a professional upholstery shop recently. The seats in the Overland are more firm than those in the Laredo and non-cooled Limited.
I agree that on long trips, they are pretty comfortable but take some getting used to if you are coming out of something that has a more cushioned seating.

I would agree with the others stating that the seats are fine. It's probably just you being sensitive compared to your existing seats more than anything else.
