    Just got rid of our Sealy mattress. we got 5 years out of it. It was a Newport model, was made of latex foam. Started to sag after 6 months and Sealy said it was within specs. I got this mattress because I was told it was good for a bad back. It looks like it made things worse. After looking on line, this mattress and all other Sealy latex foam mattresses appear to noting but a POS---riproff. For 2k, you should get some kind of quality and it should not do additional damage to a bad back.

    I'm not looking for any money from Sealy, but they should be made to pay.

    Well if there is a layer out there who wants to make some money, this should be like shooting fish in a barrel.

    Hardly

    No cause of action

    You should have returned it within the warranty period

    Go see a local lawyer and see what they say-

    It had a 15 year warranty, complained to Sealy after 6months, sent them photo's of the sag, performed their tests. They said it was within their performance specs & would not make any warranty repairs or adjustments. Furniture Land South the seller said is was an issue to be handled by Sealy.

    take it to their store- and drop it off- demand they fix it

    Another option is to file a small claims action against the store- and call the person that told you Sealy screwed it up that works in the store- ask him/her if they told you that- ask them about their comment about this being a problem they know of

    Ask them why they are selling known defective merchandise=

    I dont think you have a case but using the above- a judge may think otherwise-

    Look above about small claims action- it might get you a refund

    It would have some entertainment value

    I bought a Sleep Number bed a couple of years ago and now I refer to it as my coma bed. That dude sleeps so well it will make you late for business meetings and appointments:)

    Call a lawyer and see what they tell you. Real legal advice isn't available on this site. Get so real advice.

    I have had a different experience with my sleep number bed. I do not like it at all. I would take back a waterbed in a heartbeat, even a motel bed. I've had the sleep number bed for about three years, and in a month knew I wasn't going to like it. I just hoped I would learn to like it. I bought it while remodeling a house and didn't set it up for a couple of months, so couldn't return it on their thirty day money back deal. A 2000 dollar mistake.

    I guess everyone likes something different from a bed.
