Do not adjust your seat position such that you want to relax while driving, it may lead to an accident

The age and condition of the seat is relevant here. My current and previous vehicle both had crushed seats, since they were used by heavier drivers. I never got around to replacing the previous vehicle's seat, since my back was healthier then and the seat had electric motors. The cost of replacing that could have been more than the car was worth. My truck's seat was tilted, since one side was always taking the driver's whole weight as he climbed onto it. My hip became displaced before I realized the problem and replaced the seat, which was as simple as checking the parts section of craigslist for a truck being parted out. The total cost was $70, for the seat, gas to pick it up, and a new ratchet for the bolts. The cost of getting a new seat too late is still climbing, since I'm still paying for chiropractic visits.

lol you're right - what's the point of saving money on a bad seat if your body is going to pay a price for it! Confused
