I am having my second driver's power seat motor replaced next week. Both of them clunked while moving forward and backward like a gear was broken. I only weigh 190 lbs. It can't be a weight issue. Has anyone else had this problem on the 05's?

I have the same problem . Since I'm the only driver and no one ever gets into the back seat, I figured I would live with it.

Yep! The slow clunky seat mechanism is about the only thing that doesn't feel high quality in the GTO interior. They really should have used a simple mechanical release for fore/aft seat travel. No waiting for the slooooow seat.

I have an '06 and mine doesn't seem any faster than my '04.

But I only moved the seat forward maybe 3 times with the '04 - no one had ever sat in the back, just a couple of travel bags.

So I could have forgotten how slow the '04 was.

Maybe some side-by-side comparison with a stopwatch is in order.

There is a service bulletin out and a kit with a dampener to install. Had mine done 8 months ago & been fine since.

Just a FYI - I have the same problem with my seats. The problem with mine is that the seat rides on bearings set in a thin plastic rod. The plastic rod broke and parts of it, and some bearings, have ended up under the seat, thus the clunking. I'm hoping they've come up with a better design as a replacement.

Some things just don't need to be computerized. If someone created a manual replacement kit for our seats I would definitely install it.
