If you are so inclined, you might want to take the seat out and take a look underneath. The support for the cushion might be worn out and sagging.

It's an easy four bolts to take out and the unclip the wiring harness (just don't start the car with the seat out or you'll trigger the airbag light - don't ask me how I know this). My seat support had nearly fully failed (it was like sitting in a bucket) , but I was able to fashion and install a new support out of plywood that works perfectly. It supports, but has some give in it. I also repaired and re-dyed the Savanna Beige leather. Nearly good as new.
