    Help. Bought a brand new Expedition and cannot drive 30 minutes without the seat killing my back and leg. Does anyone else have this problem and is there a solution. Has this been a problem for others?

    Probably federal regulation headrest screwing with posture.... fixes include bending them or installing backwards

    I've had mine 3 weeks. Once I fiddled with the seat positions and the back support it feels pretty good.
    Im sure I'll get used to it.

    I had that problem with mine. It was making me sick to my stomach with a pain in my right side. Try putting the seat back up nearly straight, maybe 100 degrees, and raise the bottom so your hips are level with or higher than you knees. That immediately did the trick for me. I was at wits end, ready to sell the thing.

    I am a 100% disabled veteran and I drive a 2017 Ford Expedition Limited. With the multiple positions available I do not have any problems with my back and knees. I guess the seats do not fit all. Sorry to hear about your problems.

    Had the same problem with a 2008 Lincoln town car. It was so bad I had to visit my chiropractor every week. It was horrible for a new vehicle. Ironically I drove our 2001 town car that had a wonderful seat. Ford seems to cheat with quality as a model progresses. They try to make the seat thinner for cosmetics but ruin a great fitting seat. Personally the only way to fix your problem is see if dealer will install a different seat, maybe a premium model, or considering moving on to another vehicle.

    You are right, Ford does "decontent" as a vehicle gets older, My 2002 Silver/silver Crown Vic Sport had beautiful conforming leather seats. The following several I had till they stopped production had non conforming leather, almost like belting, that was uncomfortable. Seems like the do the best the first year of release then start taking out nickels and dimes, which is the reverse of what they ought to be doing to keep an existing design possible!
    As to the main topic, my 2017 Expedition Ltd. seats seem fine, leather perforated and conforms well, so far no problems for me.
