While driving the vehicle, the seat suddenly went all the way back and the interior lights came on. After a moment, the seat went back to normal position and the lights went back out. This has happened several times since then, we finally figured out it was the ignition, with the car acting like the key just got put in the ignition or just pulled out, and the seat moving all the way back for easier ingress/egress and the courtesy lights coming on. Since I am only 5 foot 2 inches, when the seat moves back I can no longer reach the petals, a very dangerous situation while driving. I hope this gets fixed before somebody gets hurt, as I have a couple friends with Mountaineer, one is the same year, who have the same problem.
