My wife has told me that the passenger seat of my R/T is on the uncomfortable side, and says that the lower lumbar sticks way out. Said it makes her feel like it pushing her out of the seat.

Well, yesterday I rode in my dads SXT Plus and noticed the exact same thing. When I got home, I hopped in my passenger seat and my wife is right. It almost feels like you are sitting 6" farther forward than the driver side, and feels like the bottom of the seat is pushing you out. Anyone else noticed this, or is it just me? Any way to adjust the lower lumbar, I cant find anything on the seat to do that with. :blockhead:

Mines the same way,(2011 challenger), and I get the same complaint from my wife. I was going to drive it to north Carolina but she said no way!!!she figured she could only take it for about an hour. Guess will have to take the Lincoln!!!
If you know of or come across any solution to this please let me know, I'd even be willing to change the seats out. Someone told me to install a drivers seat on that side. My seats not to bad but after awhile it gets a little uncomfortable as well. I do see what she means by the lumber sticking way out, I sat in it and felt it as well.
I don't know if its something as simple as taking it to an interior shop and seeing if they can remove the lumber or what but i'm at a loss.
Look forward to hearing from someone about this,
thanks, Dan.

TTT.....
just picked up my 19 SPWB car and the first thing the wife said when she sat down is "how do I fix the lumbar in this seat"

so far it's my only complaint about the car and it's really a bummer that its stuck out so far.

I would be willing to pay a little extra for the same adjustability on the passenger seat as my SXT Plus has on the drivers seat...kind of of saddened they didn't even give it some manual adjustability.

Definitely... it sucks that I had nicer seats in my focus. (Although I’m pretty happy with the drivers seat)

Dual power matching fully adjustable seats in the Charger but Challenger gets a cheap plain old seat, yeah it's bad.

The advantages to a Charger over a Challenger is a long list. Seats are probably the biggest one, full power, both sides, recline and all. PLUS memory for the seat, AND the steering column, and power pedals... Then a bunch of little thinks like trunk pull down handle, heated rear seats, stuff like that.

arent they built different? they dont even look the same do they? I have never sat in a charger i have no idea if they even look similar
When driving, you have no idea you aren't in a Challenger, same seats, same dash, slightly different console. Same car, just longer with more stuff for same price.

The seats are very similar but maybe not exact so not sure if they will work or not, but one problem would be there's no passenger side harness for the power seat functions so you would have to rig that up.

I would bet 2$ that you can swap in a Charger harness directly. But remember the whole reason the passenger seat is fully manual, is for the easy access slide for rear access.
