Hi...I recently purchased a 2016 CX-5 GT and I am enjoying almost everything about the car w/the exception of the firm driver's seat. I am curious to know if other GT owners have found the seats to be firm, and if whether or not the leather / foam soften a bit (e.g. become more comfortable) over time. By contrast, our 2015 Odyssey has far softer seats, but the lumbar support is far more pronounced even when completely backed-off.

Thanks in advance for your help. I am dealing w/a bout of sciatica / high hamstring pain and I just want to be comfortable while driving.

Happy New Year!

    First off, the seats are not leather so they will never soften. The bolsters on the sides are leather but the actual seating area is not. Second, I have sat on stadium benches that were more comfortable. Very sad since I love most everything about the car. I am having terrible back pain for the first time in my life and I blame my cx5. I complained the first day too and was told they would break in. I would love a solution that did not involve trading the car in
