Re: Squeak / creak in seat

I bought a 14 GC limited in July. It has been to the dealer for innumerable issues. It's next trip will be for the annoying squeaking seats. Hard to imagine a BRAND NEW CAR has been through this so far....wow....

Re: Squeak / creak in seat

Squeak fix from dealer lasted less than 1/2 day. Squeak is back.

Re: Squeak / creak in seat

Back to the dealer again a second time for this issue..they claimed to have it fixed...in the car for less than 20 minutes and the squeak is back. I won't take it a 3rd time until they commit to a fix that is permanent. The squeak is loud and annoying and for a 2014 with 4k miles, it's laughable. Consistent with all of the other little annoying things that have given me headaches with this new car.

Re: Squeak / creak in seat

Update-after third trip to the dealer-they believe there is a broken pinch weld in the seat frame. Say it's been an issue with other 14's. 35 other vehicles have to have their seat frames replaced. I'm going in to the dealer (trip 4 for this issue) next week. Really fed up...

Re: Squeak / creak in seat

hi, its my first time to post in this forum (but posted some in purseforum being from the female kingdom). i also had that creaking sound on the driver's seat. mine is 2014 limited by the way which i purchased in august. brought it to the dealership last week and it was fixed in less than 2 hrs. they said that there was a plastic plate in between the cushion and the metal for the lumbar. That plastic plate was rubbing on the adjuster assembly. if i am not mistaken they found dry lube on the slate adjuster so they put lube oil on it. that solved the problem in my case, so far, so good. its been almost a week and still no noise on my seat .

Re: Squeak / creak in seat

BTW, in my case lubing the joints in the lower frame / adjustment mechanism fixed my issue. I raised the seat all the way up and sprayed lithium grease on every track, bushing, and hinge point that I could see. Squeak has been gone for like 3 months now. Can't believe the dealer didn't try this.
