Default Driver seat issue

I have had my 2016 XF-S for about 30 months and the drivers seat seems to have settled so it is no longer comfortable. No, I am not a huge guy, but wonder if anyone else found this to be an issue. The vehicle has only about 12K so I surmise this would be covered under the warranty. Thanks and Merry Christmas to all.

Itís settled in the seat part? The back part?
Iíve got a similar model and while the seats have been fine, they arenít as squishy or as my truck seats (Ď06 F-150).
Has something happened specifically of late to make it more pronounced?

It's the seat bottom cushion. Nothing unusual has happened lately, it just started feeling more and more "squishy" over the past 6 months or maybe longer. I had a seat in a Z-28 that did the same thing and found the factory failed to install the burlap like material across the supports in the seat and the cross wires ended up cutting through the seat foam.

Ahhh. I see.
Interreting.

You donít drive a ton it would seem. (Mine is a Ď16 and I have about 21k miles on it.) I have my trusty F-150 that I whip out for especially nasty driving days but for the most part, I stalk my way through traffic with the XF (or ďNight FuryĒ as my wife has nicknamed it).

LOL...my wife hangs on like it was the drag strip. I am so pleased with the performance of this Jag. I have had American muscle cars for years but when you combine a ride that corners like it is on rails and the excellent acceleration from any speed or a standing start, this vehicle is outstanding. I don't drive a lot only because we have a Land Rover LR4 that gets part of the seat time as it were. The 2013 last of the LR4 V8 powered.

Happy New Year and be safe out there.

Oh, and the only complaint I have is if you scratch or scrape the body the cost will be outrageous. A scrape on the right passenger door cost almost $3400. The downside of that all aluminum architecture. The upside is the light weight.
