Drivers seat making noise?

Does anyone with the new zl1 have driver side seat issues? Mine seems to make a knocking sound in a turn or getting out of the car.

In my 2011 2SS, sometimes I can feel something in the middle of my back; like a spring collapsing a bit inside. But thankfully it's happening less and less frequently. Maybe its getting "broken" in.

Hello All,

Has everyone taken their vehicle to the dealership? This may be the best thing to do to see if there are any options of getting the concern you are having addressed. Please PM me any questions you may have.

Mines going to the dealership on Monday. Sounds like a worn out recliner, and clanks in several different areas of the seat depending on how much torque your body movement creates!
