    Alright, with both front seatbelts unbuckled, slightly twist the buckles gently back and forth, do you get a clicking or squeaking noise from them?
    Just twist them enough to move the cable of the buckle.

    It's got to be a twisting motion, not a pulling or pushing.

    This has happened to my last car, VF SSV Redline, and my current VFII SSV Redline. On the VF apparently it was a recall, but not on the VFII. I'll be taking it in next week and then give some feedback here to the issue.

    Hi all, have only just found this thread but I note my driver seat "rocks" like diagonally as I move in it or as the car corners. A clicking noise accompanies this movement as does spring noise from underneath. I'll contact a dealer and see if this issue runs to my 2017 VFII SV6.
    Other possible issue I'm looking into is poor handling/ride. The vehicle is quite skittish on corrugated or poor road surfaces. I've given the front wheels a 1/4 turn inward on each tie rod to give it the tiniest toe-in, this has helped.
    Today I dropped tyre pressures from 40PSI all round to 38 front and 35 rear, a few more drives on this poor road I travel each day may tell. I thought I'd noted minor leakage from the rear shocks a few months ago just after buying the vehicle, will double check this to see if it has worsened. Vehicle still under warranty too. Cheers.

    Yup, service guys love to pump up the tyres to 40 psi but I found that gives a harsh ride around town, especially on the original Bridgestone tyres. I'm now running on Michelin SP4S tyres and these give a much quieter and smoother ride, but even so I still have the pressures at around 36 psi. To my mind that's a good compromise between ride, handling and tyre life. I increase the pressures for high speed or heavily laden trips.
