So I believe I have the first issue with my 2013 Boss. My drivers seat has developed a "Jounce", meaning, there's an ever so slight wiggle/ wobble when getting into/ out of the car and going over road rises that affect negative G forces in the seat. I have checked the frame and there's nothing loose amongst the sliders or the floor mounts. It appears to be how the seat itself is mounted to the sliders/frame. Has anyone else experienced this? I really don't think an expensive Recarro seat should react this way after only 11K miles, and I have a slight build. Any suggestions before I take it in for warranty work? Thanks

No problems as yet, would like to hear the cause and fix though.

Finally had this repaired under warranty.  It was the latch mechanism for the recline lever.

I don't know if others have seen this, but it is hard to get in the Recaros without my bottom hitting the side support.  I have been putting the seat all the way back before getting out or back in so I do not cause wear issues down the road.

You will wear your seat out from sliding. Have had cars with cloth seating (not covered) like brand new after a decade, carpeting too. I find the key is to slightly lift up on seating while entry or exiting and no problemo. Many people are oversized though and physically can't do it, must slide. Always have had trouble with vinyl as they'd crack from sitting on cold. When I had my road runner would use one of those fender protector covers on the seat to help protect it.

I have the exact same issue in my 2013 with only 7,000KM on it. To bad the warranty is up on this car.

Roger that on the seat looseness. Haven't had the problem but wonder if Ford used existing seat frames to mount the ReCaros on. Thought they were complete but that would explain something as that.

I have a small (custom cut) looks OEM, piece of black bathtub tape on my inner sill panel, to place my left hand on for lifting my arse in and out of the car over the side seatbottom bolster. I have had it in ALL of my S197’s. This way the seat bolster never shows any wear, and also without “plopping” down all the time, keeps the dreaded jounce from happening. :salute:

Nice idea BB. Did something similiar with my door panel. Have this veneer (very thin) dark gray indoor/outdoor roll of carpeting. Cut a piece to fit lower door panel where speaker might be placed. Use to put foot against to push door open on occasion. Use hand of coarse but sometimes more exit room is an advantage.

Can't say how I do it but lift up slightly to egress car. One leg out and on pavement for support. Easier wihen I had Corvette to plant bottom in seat, feet still on ground and swing into place after. This could be the start of a new forum on this one.

Just me I'm sure but hate to see scuffed scuff plates, in particular always lift feet over these. Would rather have dirt etc on floor mat (easy vac up). Some knock gravel off shoes by kicking against rocker panels before getting in, hmm. Don't do it on my car.
