Just in the past week or so my seat frames (front drivers) have been making a metal flexing noise when I get and and adjust myself. When I accelerate I can hear the flexing noise to. Not sure if it is related to the heat or if the metal is fatiguing. Right now it is just an annoyance, when I bring in to the dealer for service I will have them look at, in the mean time I can increase the volume of the radio :rock:. I do not have the seat slide problem (movement of the drivers seat back and forth), I do have the feeling of running over pebbles when I move the seat back and forth on the track (only in 1 small section, must be a connnection of two tracks - that is what it feels like to me).

Should I be more concerned about this issue (do not want to get in an accident and my seat fails)? Have never had this on any other vehicle I have owned, have 90,000 mile on the Suburban and the seats are rock solid, not even 3000 on the Acadia and i have this sound. :banghead:

I just started to hear this more today...I'm a sound nut in my vehicles. Any little noise sends me over the edge. This is starting to piss me off...I had a few noises in my seat, but after 5000 miles, it's getting worse!

Finally, I thought I was nuts or being a fanatic. I guess I have gotten used to it but it is still there, I have noticed that since the air has chilled a little bit and the interior is cooler when I get it that the noise seems to dimish a bit. Have not had a reason to drive the 40 miles to the dealer yet, I am planning on an oil change soon (in October) so I will be making an appointment for that and the tranny flash, will bring up this noise to them and see what they think.

It is on my list as well, when you run the seat all the way back then forward it sounds like a cement mixer and physically acts like it is going over a broken/bent track :confused:
Not much of a premium seat package, especially since the lumbar adjustment does not work at all :angryfire:

Not to be indelicate but are those of you having this problem unusually heavy? I know my dad was and actually broke the back rest in his Ford. Wondering if this is an issue with heavier people only. I am under 200 LBS and have not noticed anything to date.

I'm very short for my weight but haven't had any seat flexing problems. ;D
