I think it's how you put your butt into the seat that > - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
causes the wear. If you contact the side of the seat back and slide down and in - much more wear than moving in low and putting your butt on the bottom cushion.
I tried to watch how people get into cars for awhile and noticed that some lean on the seat while standing and slide down and in.
I started paying attention after driving a high mile c900 that was in beautiful condition - but the drivers seat felt funny. Paying attention revealed that the outside lower bolster of the seatback was sort of collapsed and if you sat with lower back tight in the seat - and have a kinda narrow butt - as I do - you tended to slide to the outside of the seat because there was less side support on one side than the other.
>> and as noted heavier bigger people put a lot more wear into a seat over time.
I have an '86 c900 2-door sedan that I bought with 192K, one owner, +/- 125# woman, and the drivers seat feels like new to sit in because the shape of the lower cushion is still like new.
