2009 Vibe - Driver seat drifting

Post by Glenpointe » Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:18 am

I've a 2009 Pontiac Vibe 2.4L base. I'm the only driver of this vehicle. I adjust seat to the highest position, but it seems to drift down by itself. So every few days, I've to adjust the seat again. This happens since I purchased the car 6 months ago. Have similar issue?

Glen. I too have this issue with one of our 2009 Vibe GT's . It seems that the hydraulics that hold the seat up in the highest position (that's where mine is always, due to me being a short 5'-7" tall)leaks down, so I have to "pump it up" (no Hanz & Franz here :lol: ) usually every month or so. I just constantly check it and adjust it when it feels lower. Not bothering with any fix at the moment .
