After a couple of months of driving my 17 on my daily 1 hour commute in chicago my ribs began feeling like i had gone a few rounds with Mike Tyson. I have never had this problem with a car and suspected the cloth seats. The pain had become so bad that I worried about long distance driving which I will have to do this summer. My fears were confirmed by a post I read on the first Gen forum where an owner solved a similar issue with his volt by improvising a clever cushion install that he taped on the top of the seat in front of the headrest. I tried the same thing and lo and behold the pain in my ribs almost totally disappeared. The problem is that the pain has now migrated to my upper right back and neck. It's not as bad but not tolerable for long. So now I have a bunch of questions: Do I need to replace the cloth with leather seats? Should I purchase aftermarket seats (there seem to be a large variety for sale on the internet that claim to fit my volt)? Should I just go to an upholstery shop? Can my dealer help me? etc, etc... Has anyone gone through this with a 17? I would love to have this fixed before the summer driving season.
