They explained to me that there has been over thousands of cars has come in to get that fixed and is dangerous due to while your driving you seat will move cause the plastic will readjust you if you go over a bump or stoping.

#6 - Seats problem of the 2008 Chrysler Pt Cruiser
The vehicle having this issue was a 2008 Chrysler Pt Cruiser. I took a trip to pick my son up from college the night before thanksgiving. I was in heavy traffic on highway 91 and at times it was bumper to bumper. When I got on the 91 my electronic driver's seat began adjusting itself without any input from me. The seat bottom moved up and down, at angles and forward to backward. All this happened continuously. I tried pushing the button that controls the seat and got not response. I ended up having to lurch around on my seat for almost an hour before I could get off the busy highway. It was a strain to remain in lane and staying upright. Other drivers must have thought I was drunk and it was all I could do to keep from having an accident. The seat finally stopped moving when I turned off the car and got out. I woke up the next morning with a pulled muscle in my back and could barely walk. This seats issue occurred Tue., Nov. 24, 2009.
