Does any one have trouble with their VW Beetle's driver's seat staying at the right height?

Asked by Jul 12, 2017 at 09:22 PM about the 2016 Volkswagen Beetle 1.8T SE Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My driver's seat in my 2016 Beetle sinks down as I drive. I am not over weight. It only happens on the driver's side. The dealer replaced the mechanism once. The dealer tried to tell me that I was getting into the car in such a way that my leg brushes the lever that controls the height. Ummm... no. Anybody have any real insight?

Sorry not an answer but my wife is having the same problem in her Beetle - not whilst she is driving but when she returns to the car. It is currently in the VW garage and I presume from the telephone conversation that they will be telling me that this is normal and not a defect. Have you had any further advice??

My car was recently at the dealer for another issue (mine is a convertible and the rear passenger window does not always stay up when putting the top up) and once again I mentioned that the seat is continuing to sink down. I am told by the dealer that I have the only Beetle that they have encountered with this issue. I am hoping to find people who have the same issue with their car so that VW Corporate steps in and does something. My only other explanation is that the car was made on a Monday after a party weekend or on a Friday when the factory was anxious to get home.
