Penny D,
Don't bother. Sending it back--I collapse any cushioning the moment I sit--no benefit what-so-ever!
Just bought a thick cushion at Target. Just on the way home, it felt great, BUT...it is short and the forward edge hits me in the middle of my thighs.
Oh no!! Thanks for the info. I ordered three different cushions from Amazon yesterday including the one you referenced. I’ll let you know if either of the other two give any relief. It’s a very annoying situation.

I think I solved it--new thick Target pad under 2 day old larger but thinner Amazon pad.
Only problem is keeping both together and in the right place on seat.
After a brief road trip to verify satisfaction, I may sew both together with large needle and button thread.

Thank you! Hope it works. Some fabric spray adhesive might work.
is there any information you can provide on the Target cushion that might help me locate one?

It is approx. 3 ½" thick. No bottoming out! :p

Have you read the reviews? I don’t think it will work for me. As a 5’9” female, I’m looking for soft and don’t need any extra height. I hope you have a dark interior based on what I read about this product.

Reviews look good. I'm 5'10" and all I had to do is lower the seat just a bit.
My interior is Black.

Penny,
YOU were right on regarding height!!
The Target pad is going back. It is too tall, and I cannot lower the seat anymore. Also, it makes entry to the car problematic, as I hit my head due to the height.
I've searched everywhere. A standard or queen sized pillow would likely work, but the height, before being compressed by my darrier, is too high to get in & out go the car.

If I ever see a throw pillar that is rectangular, and not very thick, it may work, but, for now, I'll stick with my original Amazon pad.

Yes. I was surprised that it was going to work for you. I got my three cushions from Amazon today. I opened the cheapest one first. It is 1 1/2 inches thick, so a little thicker than the one you got. I installed it and sat in the garage on it for five minutes or so. I’m still going through the menu and adjusting settings , learning about the car, etc. Anyway, it seems like a great solution for my issues. Most of my discomfort was coming from the very back of the seat. it’s so hard.

Another solution I found in the event the cushions didn’t work was some leftover dense foam from some kitchen chairs I had reupholsted . It’s not too thick, about 1”, and seemed like it would soften the seat enough for me. You might want to try some of that under your Amazon cushion.

Hope you figure something out. No matter how much you like the car, if you’re miserable sitting in it, not good!!

Definitely a work in progress! o_O
Hi , I’m wondering if you ever found a solution for your seat comfort? The cushion I kept from Amazon has solved most of my issues. I’m sad to have to “disfigure” the otherwise beautiful interior, but better than being in misery.
Interestingly, I was given a loaner yesterday. Feels like a toy car, a G70. I made a short trip in it and found the seat in that car to be uncomfortable also.

I, also, kept the not I bought from Amazon. It's not great, but acceptable.
Anything thicker would make entering harder.
Problem, though, is I'll have so suffer throughout the winter if I want to use the "seater heater". I can live without AC in the seat, but not the heater!

Oh, yes the cushion certainly prevents the benefit of heating or a/c. Fortunately, for me, it doesn’t get too cold in Atlanta and I have the luxury of avoiding being out when it is.
Maybe, with time, the original seat will soften up a bit.🤞🤞
