    No matter how much I deflate my lumbar supports or 3 air bags in the back of the seat, when I start the car, they inflate up a bit. Anybody else notice this? I find this annoying because the seat has enough lumbar without any air in the back. I have to constantly deflate the lumbar after the car is started and it's done it's inflation cycle.

    You may have to reprogram the entry system. The one that adjusts the seating when you unlock your door with the key fob.

    I agree. Once you reset the seat, push and hold either Mem position 1 or 2 for a few seconds until you hear the chime. If that works, great, if not then a visit to the dealer is in order.

    Sometimes it appears as if the seat resets the lumbar position when you start the car after having used the massage function. Perhaps the seat was still partially in adjustment from the massage when you turned it off.

    No, I haven't been. It's even doing the passenger side one so it doesn't have anything to do with the memory function I believe. Just wanted to see if it was normal. I will call the dealer, thanks guys.

    My passenger side will also randomly inflate upon starting the car. Perhaps over time the air bags in the seat lose some air while the car is off. Upon start-up, it pumps more air to return it to its previous size.

    Why does this only apply to the 2 toned interiors? Did only the 2 tone have this option? Anyways mine doesn't do that but then again we haven't saved anything to memory 1 or 2 yet.
