Do you find the 2012 Titanium cloth seats comfortable?

I picked up an end of the year closeout on a 2012 Titanium with cloth seats. After a few days of driving I have to say the sets are just not comfortable. I find the seat is a bit narrow and the side bolster pushes against my leg. They are also on the firm side. Do you they break in? What has been your experience?

I'm not exactly a twig but I find the seats very comfortable. They do hug you closely. Albeit I have an SEL, but the SE sport, SEL and Ti all use the exact same seat frame and seat pads. The difference is in the color and texture of the cloth between series.

I've done 6+ hrs in the car straight without discomfort.

Not saying that its a universal case to say that they are comfortable, but for me I like them.

They hug me better than my crazy ex who ran off and married an older guy who had no future and no prospects as soon as we broke up.

2012's came in cloth?? I thought Titaniums only came in leather? I find my leather seats to be very comfortable and good quality up there with VW V-Tex and Leather seats I had in the past.

I test drove the car with the leather and did not notice the issue but I bought the cloth seats. They seem much harder and a bit too narrow. I'm hoping they break in.

The base Titanium 400A came standard with cloth seats in 2012, and the Ti still comes with cloth seats for Canada.

Seat warmers set to the highest setting and remote start, I have the features and do not need them here, kinda of a waste.

Wish I could trade my heated leather seats and remote start feature for a set of HID Projectors and LED DRLs, too bad we all can't buy cars a la carte to our needs.

I just did a 9 hour drive for the long weekend. After a few hours I started to find the seats a bit on the hard side, and after 7 hours I was getting a bit sore, but I think even 7 hours in a plush La-Z-Boy would give you some discomfort.

On the plus side I hit 42 MPG! Got 760 KM out of my tank before I wussed out. The DTE still said 130 K to empty so I probably could've got closer to 900.

I love my Ti cloth seats. I would not have bought this car if it had leather.
