Failure Date: 11/30/2014

While driving on Sunday night, a car in front of mine hit the brakes requiring me to do the same. At that point, the seat behind my driver's seat disengaged from the locking mechanism and tilted forward. My daughter was in the seat at the time in her carseat. As the seat fell forward her face hit the back of my seat causing an abrasion and black eye. She was taken to her doctor. The van will be taken in to Chrysler for evaluation. Clearly the seat malfunctioned as it was not left unlocked.

My wife experienced an electric shock from the driver seat when she started the engine and the electric shocks continued while the engine was running. The electric shock was severe, causing pain and forcing her to get out of the seat, and continued while she sat in the seat. The electric shocks appear to come from the right side of the seat cushion. In order to drive the vehicle she had to insulate herself with cardboard which appear to muffle the shocks so she can drive the van home. There were no burning smells only a steady continuous electric shock.

As y ou are driving the dashboard will start a beeping sound, lights on dash will flash on and off. The seat will start to move back and foward, up and down. This is very dangerous for this to happen while you are driving.

Was driving down the road when the alarm started beeping, lights on dashboard flickered, and wipers go on and off on their own. Has happened several times. Now the passenger back door automatic buttons do not work and the driver's seat will move forward and back when driving. This is a huge safety issue and the Chrysler dealerships are not helpful in finding a solution. Said it will take several weeks to try and diagnose what's wrong. I am alarmed that more people are having similar issues and a recall has not been made. It's hard to drive when your seat is moving. In addition, sometimes my transmission will not shift. Seems to be an electrical problem. Once I turn the vehicle off and restart it, seems to run fine.

2012 Chrysler Town & Country (rental). Consumer writes in regards to rental vehicle sliding door & passenger seats malfunction. The consumer stated the sliding doors just behind the front doors were electronically operated. There were 2 occasions where the consumer's husband and a teen-aged driver inadvertently had their hand on the car frame, and when the button was pushed to close the door, it did not stop, when it hit their hands. It kept moving and mashed their hands between the moving door and door frame. The injuries were not severe. However, a safety switch is needed to stop the door. A much bigger problem, however, was found in the second row of the seat, just behind the front seat. The consumer stated she and her husband were sitting in the seats, and decided to take a nap. When she went to re-position the seat, to its upright position, she turned sideways to pull the lever on the side, but when she pulled it, the entire back rest assembly slammed her forward with considerable impact. At the same time, the head rest atop the back rest slammed forward with much more impact and it hit her in the back of the head.

I was cleaning behind the drivers side, middle row seat with a shop vac. I wanted to clean under the seat so I pulled the handle to disengage the seat from the floor. The back of the chair released from the floor and tipped forward. I had my right hand on the back of the chair to assist it and when the chair came forward the sear adjusted itself and slid down towards the floor. Somehow, when the chair slid forward it trapped my ring finger on my right hand in what I would call the seat rails. It basically smashed it flat against the back of a bolt so tight I could not free it. This was surprising painful!! because of the awkward position I was now trapped in. I could not get my finger out on my own. I had to yell for my kids to get my phone so I could call my wife to help me free my hand. I ended up with a small cut and bruised finger.

Driving on interstate when 5 year old granddaughter started to scream. Turned and found that the driver's side second row seat had folded on her as though to "stow & go". Was shocked that a) the seat allows itself to fold when occupied b) there is not a safety button on it that engages preventing seat handle from operating and folding. Child had fallen asleep and started to slide off seat. In order to correct herself she pushed on the edge of her seat. The seat appeared to interpret this as a need to "stow & go". Chrysler needs to recall this handle and be forced to replace with a handle with a safety button or replace all the seats with seats that only fold when no weight on them is present.

I was putting the stow and go seat (behind driver's seat) into the storage compartment. I was holding up the floor board flap in my left hand and used my right hand to lift the folded seat into the floor compartment. As I folded the seat into the compartment, my ring finger on right hand got wedged or caught in the seat mechanism. I could not get the finger out. I returned the seat to the upright position thinking that the finger would become loose and I could remove it. It still would not come out. I was in our garage and my wife was away. There was no way I could get my finger out by myself. I was able to yell to a neighbor who came over. He unscrewed one screw and then used the screwdriver to pry mechanism open sufficient where I could remove the finger. I sustained a broken fingernail and cut to the finger. Had the neighbor not heard me, I would have stuck until someone arrived to help me.

Jeep used a very poor quality material for 2005 liberty seats. Did supplier test material before approving it? I am really disappointed with this situation. Seats stain with water, I am not able to clean it, the leading trademark does not clean, the stains gets bigger. I want Jeep to replace or refund for the purchase of cover seats. I look forward to your prompt answer. Thanks.
