    Both my wife and I feel the seat belt is too tight around the abdominal area (low abdominal area, where seat belts should be), definitely tighter than the seat belts on our current / previous BMW, Lexus, etc.

    Is there something you can buy that would stop the seat belt from tightening on the horizontal strap?

    We are both pretty thin, so being overweight is not the reason for us feeling it being too tight.

    I've the same problem. I have to loosen it up constantly while driving as its making me feel very uncomfortable.

    Is this something that Tesla service would resolve? Or should I just buy some sort of seat belt stopper that clicks right about when buckle so it keeps the horizontal strap slightly looser than now?

    If I do need to buy something like that, I really have no idea what to buy...

    Now that you mention this, I have this happen regularly as well. It really cinches down on me from time to time...
