Jul 30, 2013 - Glen Burnie, MD - Seats
WHEN MY HUSBAND DRIVES MY CAR, HE MOVES THE SEAT BACK. WHEN I DRIVE MY CAR, I MOVE THE SEAT FORWARD. THIS ACTION CAUSES THE AIRBAG LIGHT ON THE DASH TO COME ON. WHEN I MOVE THE ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED SEAT FORWARD/BACKWARD, THE AIRBAG LIGHT WILL "SOMETIMES" GO OFF. THE NHTSA REF 07V240000 REFERENCES A RECALL FOR THE FRONT SEAT TRACK POSITION SENSOR. I CONTACTED CHRYSLER TO SEE IF MY CAR IS ONE THAT HAS BEEN RECALLED. I'M TOLD THAT IT IS NOT. I THINK IT SHOULD BE.
Dec 24, 2010 - Chillicothe, OH - Seats
MY 2007 CHRYSLER SEBRING (38000 MILES) HAD A COMPLETE BURN THROUGH ON THE FABRIC OF THE FRONT DRIVERS SEAT WHILE THE HEATED SEAT FUNCTION WAS TURNED ON. THE BURN THROUGH WAS ABOUT 12 INCHES LONG ON THE VERTICAL BACK PART OF THE SEAT. THIS COULD HAVE BURNED ME OR (SHOCKED ME?). SHOULDN'T THERE HAVE BEEN A FUSE THAT WOULD HAVE BLOWN OR SOME OTHER SAFETY FEATURE TO KEEP THIS HEATING ELEMENT FROM CONTINUING TO BURN THROUGH? I CALLED MY LOCAL CHRYSLER DEALERSHIP AND SINCE MY WARRANTY RAN OUT IN APRIL, THEY WOULDN'T EVEN LOOK AT THE CAR UNLESS I GAVE THEM $89.00. THIS INCIDENT HAPPENED ON 12/23/10. THIS WHOLE BURN THROUGH ON THE SEAT HAPPENED WHILE THE CAR WAS TURNED OFF!
