Driver seat issue

Good afternoon other Civic enthousiasts 🙂

I own a Civic 8th 2007 sport 1.8, and i am currently looking for an upgrade , 9th generation.

Been to a few dealers and have a question for other 9th gen users .
The driver seat, i have test driven in 3, 9thgen cars, 2013 make, and all the driver seats crack/creek, make noises as if the foam and springs are rubbing against each other?
It feels in the lower part of your back.
Driven cars with low mileage(36000km) it happens somewhat
Medium mileage( 77000km) happens a lot big annoyance.

Is this normal?
Or have any of you repaired replaced anything to solve this?

Seats were all fabric, non heated versions.

Thx for any reply

I'm up to 8K (Miles) now and I've never noticed any noises from the seats like you describe; I'm sort of picturing springy-bed noises like an old land rover going over any bumps.

Not too sure what would be causing it - Have you tried going on a diet?

No problem with mine either.

Lol, i am 75 kg, so no problems with me, maybe the persons who have driven the car before me, since i want to buy a used car, that is a really weird thing to encounter, unless certain types of seats are more known tot have issues/problems .

I own a 8th gen Civic now with 187.000km on the clock and no issues with Seats.

@Haltamer , yeah, springy bed noises, that is accurate 😁
