car   Front Seat Power Adjust problem of Chevrolet Malibu

The vehicle was a 2004 Chevrolet Malibu maxx. I sat down in the front driver's seat and heard a loud snap. The seat immediately dropped down and to the right. The weld on the seat frame just snapped causing the power seat functions to no longer work. Since the seat was moved as far back as possible at the time the frame broke, the bolts that remove the seat from the vehicle are completely covered and not accessible. I am stuck with driving a broken/ unsafe/ unmovable seat or paying over $1000 at the dealership to have this fixed. Because of the safety issue I would be willing to spend the money at the dealership for a new seat but I have absolutely no faith that the new seat will work for long, especially after reading about some people having their seat repaired by the dealership multiple times (spending over $2000 total) and they're still driving around on a broken seat. When are we getting a recall?? the posts describing this issue go all the way back to 2005 and it seems that gm just doesn't care. This issue happened on Wednesday, April 16, 2014.

car   Front Seat Power Adjust problem of Acura TSX

The vehicle involved is a 2006 Acura Tsx. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is JH4CL96856_. Drivers seat squeaks and creaks when weight shifts. This is most noticeable when making left turns. There are 7 pages of owners on an Acura Tsx owners website that also experience this problem. Many have taken it to their dealer and either the seat base or rails are replaced or tightened. Some dealers mentioned that these were either aligned improperly or are not strong enough to support the weight and they either bend or shift. In many cases, the fixes the dealers performed did work and the noise returns soon afterwards. While this is quite possibly not a safety issue, it is a build problem with the redesigned 2006 Tsx. The seat system in this model year is new due to the addition of the power-adjustment mechanism. A $28k car should not have squeaks and creaks. It was Mar. 30, 2006 when this front seat power adjust issue happened.

car   Front Seat Power Adjust problem of Honda Pilot

The car was a 2006 Honda Pilot. Drivers power seat adjuster assembly l reclining 81630-s3v-a30 failed catastrophically at front left corner bracket cracked due to metal fatigue leaving seat partially unsecured to the vehicle. This is not a wear point the metal support bracket simply sheared off. Vehicle was not involved in any accident or off road activities that might have caused or stressed vehicle or its components in any way. As a result seat and seat back are unsecured falling flipping backward during acceleration and certainly would not be safe during an accident especially a rear collision would probably causing serious bodily injury and possibly death to the occupant driver and effect the integrity of the seat belt and air bag systems. If this part was to fail while driving it might startle driver and cause and accident. Honda was immediately contacted and refused repair or replace at their expense or even participate / contribute in any amount toward the repair or replacement. They denied there is a known problem despite numerous similar complaints on this site and the Honda and accord forums. I believe this same part is common in Pilot, accura mdx and odyssey Mini vans model years of 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 and possibly others. This issue happened on Apr. 13, 2014.

This bracket is on the front left side approximately behind the power seat controls. The seat is now unattached from the adjuster assembly and quite unsafe. This happened while getting in the vehicle. The broken bracket may be part of adjuster assy. , l. Reclining, 81630-s3v-a30, but it is hard for me to tell since the exploded parts diagram that I have access to does not seem to match, quite, what I see. Based on parts and labor, I estimate the cost to repair this defect to be in the $800-1200 range. This front seat power adjust issue occurred Tue., Apr. 15, 2014.

car   Front Seat Power Adjust problem of Hyundai Azera

I purchased a used 2008 Hyundai Azera from a non-Hyundai dealership. Several days after taking possession of it, we drove it on an overnight trip out of town. On the drive back home, the front driver's seat, which is equipped with full power seat controls, moved forward autonomously, crushing my husband against the steering wheel while we were on the highway. He quickly pushed the power seat control to move the seat back, but as soon as he let go, the seat would move forward again. After several incidents of moving the seat back only to have it move forward again, he pulled over, got out, pushed the seat back, and got back in. However, once he was back in the car, it moved forward again. After moving it back yet again, it didn't move again for a little while. I contacted the sales person the following day. He said I needed to clear the "seat preference" memory (which I subsequently did several times) but otherwise he (and the dealership) disavowed any responsibility. Due to inclement weather, I drove another car for several days. But, when I went to drive the Azera, the front driver's seat was up against the steering wheel, having moved on its own sometime after the car had been parked/turned off. I continued to find the seat up against the steering wheel over the next several days, despite it being in a normal position when I had turned the car off. Then the driver seat start moving forward while I was driving. I was able to override the control temporarily. I parked the car, but when I attempted to get back in it, it kept pinning me against the steering wheel. I finally managed to hold the seat switch with all my strength to drive the car several block home. It has since been towed to a Hyundai dealership to be repaired. Given the other complaints of the seat moving on its own, I believe there is a defect in the switch equipment that Hyundai should fix. It was 01/05/14 when this front seat power adjust issue happened.

car   Front Seat Power Adjust problem of Jeep Grand Cherokee

The car involved is a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. (relating to the driver-side seat only) my daughter and I was waiting at a traffic stop, (I was driving) when the light turn green I pressed on the accelerator and my entire seat including myself swung back. Because of the backward momentum, it causes me to abruptly press further on the accelerator. I was able to regain control of the vehicle and pull on the side to inspect the seat. I found that the two front brackets under the seat had broken off. Since I had adjustable power seat, I lower the seat to align the broken brackets to wedge under the bar causing the seat to stabilize or at least hold in a semi-solid position. I called Chrysler and they said they could not do anything about it since the vehicle was out of warranty. I argued that this is an unusual incident where I have never heard that the driver-side seat brackets would break off and possibly cause an accident. Especially for a Jeep, this vehicle is meant to be driven on and off road. Again, they said that there was nothing that they could do. This is a design flaw and should be address before someone gets seriously injured. This front seat power adjust problem happened on Sat., Jan. 18, 2014.

car   Front Seat Power Adjust problem of Toyota Sienna

The vehicle is a 2006 Toyota Sienna. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 5TDZA22C06_. The third row power seat became inoperable. The seat back would not come up so someone could sit there. Toyota has a technical service bulletin (TSB) and it is t-sb-0183-09. Toyota knows that they have a problem with this seat. This is a safety issue because the seating capacity is cut and no seat belts for the passengers. I was out of town and we had to fold the seat down to pick up some larger items and when we dropped those items off, the seat would not return to the upright position. It was the larger portion of the 60/40 seat; therefore cutting my capacity by 2 people. Luck for us, we are a family of 5 and were still able to make it the 300 miles home with everyone in a seat with a seatbelt. If we had one more in our family I don't know what we would have done. I am able to do that type of repair but it was still over $500 dollars to repair. If you take it to the dealer it is around $1000! there is no manual override or any way to get the seat to work. You must replace the seat track assembly. Now my other side has quit working! this is a safety concern! they say the van has a capacity of 7. With that seat not working it is only 6. This would be different if Toyota didn't already acknowledge that there is a problem. I was a automotive technician for 15 years and I would accept this as a part failure, if it was isolated. It is a problem enough for Toyota to recognize it and give it a TSB! this should be a safety recall. The failure date was Friday, November 11, 2011.

car   Front Seat Power Adjust problem of Volvo S80

The car involved was a 2002 Volvo S80. The driver's seat was adjusting itself randomly while driving. However, the controls would not respond when I attempted to re-adjust the seat. Several times while driving, the backrest of the seat would move into a completely horizontal position. Other times, the entire seat (including the backrest) would move as far forward as possible, creating a major driving hazard. I would have to pull over and wait, repeatedly attempting to re-adjust the seat until it randomly started to respond. When I took the car to a Volvo dealership, they could not determine any reason or cause for the problem. I could not afford to replace the power seat module at a cost of $850 (parts & labor). The dealership unplugged the module after adjusting the seat to fit me, but that is not a proper solution. A consumer should not be responsible for replacing a vehicle part due to faulty wiring, especially one that creates a driving hazard on the road!. The failure date was Sep. 1, 2011.

car   Front Seat Power Adjust problem of BMW 540

I went out to my BMW 540i and found the driver's power seat all the way back in the horizontal position. I did not leave it this way, so this was confusing to me. When I attempted to move it back upright into a comfortable driving position, it did not respond- the seat was dead. I could not move it manually, either. I was forced to drive the car a short distance to drop my son off at an activity, so I decided to drive it and lean forward while driving. My plan was to take the car to my local BMW mechanic later that night and drop it off to be repaired. My son and I were only two minutes into our drive, I was leaning forward, and he said "do you smell smoke?" I did smell it, and was looking around to see what was wrong. Then my son said "dad, your seat is on fire!" I looked down, and saw flames coming out from under my seat. We pulled the car over and put out the fire with his water bottle. The heated seats were not being used, this happened on July 19th, during the summer. My local BMW shop is telling me this is a $3100 repair. The part in question that caused the fire, per the claims adjuster, is the "general module. " I understand the car is 10 years old, but it simply blows my mind that a car can randomly catch on fire internally like this. BMW north America is not taking ownership to this situation, and has offered no help. It was July 19, 2012 when this front seat power adjust issue occurred.
