    The WORST seat you have ever sat in

    Ok...what is the WORST car seat you have ever been unlucky enough, to drop your sorry arse into?

    Not the car...not even the colour.....just the SEAT SHAPE and total lack of comfort?

    The Metro (A reg kinda age)...I just sat in one.....well....I say "sat"...I fell into it and had to use ropes to climb out....

    Its an L shape which my skinny arse dropped inside of, and I had more thigh support than in my entire life....in fact, it was like sitting in a Sandwhich Toaster.

    I was in it for 3 minutes....I hurt more than if Lowe had introduced me to Kick Boxing..... What a horrible car.

    Right...your go......SPILL EM....

    Cobra Monacos. Cheap buckets but bloody aweful to sit on when you're doing a long journey. No so much car specific cos they get chucked in all sorts.

    Indiscriminate large VW van circa 1983...... the seat was broken granted... but, the back was on TWO angles - the right hand side of the seat was nearer the wheel than the left hand side, and the whole thing was raked back, half way up the seat - the bottom half was vertical, I kid you not - with the effect that the only bit that touched your back was just below your kidneys....and one of the rails had collapsed so the thing was a bit drunken anyway


    Luckily, someone torched the garage it was in, and put the poor van out of it's misery

    Honda Accord on a drive down to Bristol from Cranfield, some 2.5hrs in the car, I had Severe back pain for the next 2 days, it was truely horrible and probably one of the worst cars i've driven.
    Sure it was a company car but it was ragged to hell.. but i'd never buy a honda after that experience.

    2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

    Ok, you guys probably don't exactly see those every day but the cloth covered seats are aweful!
    They are buckets with the thigh supports angled upwards only the thigh supports are so close together that a 80 lb. woman with no butt would fit perfectly They pinch youor cheeks together and maje your knees knock together not to mention that once you sit down, wether you comfortable or not, you are GLUED in the seat of your pants even if you hips are angled at 30 degrees uphill. It's like setting into a big V shaped seat bottom with velcro for fabric
    To make them even worse, they are misaligned with the pedals so that after your knees are forced together by the seat bottoms and your pant legs are glued to the thigh supports you have to force your feet off to the left (remember i'm on the OTHER side of the car ) to get on the pedals, it's like a Woman sitting proper with a tight mini skirt on and placing here feet under her seat.

    These were the aweful buckets that were ( Got in a bad accident with it and soon got rid of it ) my Wifes Grand Cherokee. I've sat on milk crates more comfy, and this is a fairly expensive SUV.
    Chrysler sucks

    RS Turbo Recaros...the back section is to narrow for me, i find the supports tend to dig in my back rather than wrap around...

    My drivers seat

    It's quite comfy but you cant adjust it except backwards or forwards, and it doesn't have a headrest, same with the passenger seat.
    Mini!!!!!

    I can't quite remember the year or model (was green tho), but it was an old John Deere tractor. It was one of those plastic chairs like you used to get at school! Not very comfy...

    Gonna have to agree with Zak, so far the worst seat I've been in is in a metro, around that age.

    Only my problem is compounded by the fact that I'm 6'4" and large build.

    Then closely followed by seats in a Fiat Cinquettento (sp?) it was made worse by the fact that the seat belts are so bloody small!

    there is a worse seat than the Metro front seats.......




















    THE BACK SEAT How bloody uncomfortable can you make a seat? I reckon they designed discomfort into it.. no way anything designed to offer comfort can be so evil..... at least in the front you get a seat to yourself ffs.... like sitting on a poorly angled, velour covered plank.....

    Back of a G reg Mini. Solid "race" suspension, and I think a seat that resembled a wooden plank has left me with, I'm sure, long term back problems due to road bumps.

    It was painful.
