I am having a terribly uncomfortable seating in my 2014 E-350 driver seat (actually passenger seat is identical). The seat bottom is too narrow with the raised side edges too hard. As a result, my thighs and outer heap bones are pressed very hard by the raised seat edges. So painful that I can hardly drive the car. Since I bought the car two years ago, I have driven only 2500 miles so far, keeping the car parked in my garage most of the time. I complained this problem to my Mercedes dealer and they said they had never heard of the same problem from other owners. But, as a good gesture, the dealer did one thing for me. With my consent, they inserted a thick sponge cushion in the seat bottom to raise it higher for my seating. This did not remove the problem, unfortunately. This created another problem. The more hardened and raised seat bottom just push up my buttocks at the center and the problem is now worse. Well, the seat is just a hell. I don't know what to do after all. I don't want to take my car back to the dealer for the problem, knowing that there is nothing they can do to solve the problem.Hi , this is my first post in this forum.
I've sold my Lexus GS and purchased (my first MB) a 2014 E350 Sport three weeks ago, I like this car a lot, however, I am finding the driver seat not as comfortable as I expected, perhaps I was spoiled with the Lexus' seats?, however, MB's motto is the best or nothing, I was expecting the seats to be really top quality. The problem is more evident after driving for more than one hour, I am 6' and normal build (195 lbs), never had this issue with any of the other cars I had in the past (Lexus, G37, GM, Nisan, etc). I'd like to hear if other people is having this issue or it is just my car that may have a defective seat?. I have tried all the position combinations that you could think of but I was only able to get some minor improvement. I'd like to get other MB owners input before I call MB service to explain this issue.
Other than that, I just wish that MB would provide heads up display as an option (BMW does have now standard with their Nav system), and other nit pic is the the size of the Nav screen to be too small for a car of this quality.
