Was moving out of parking area at 10mph. Driver started stretching when seat cracked in half. Took to dealer 7 informed it was already cracked before driver broke it. Seat swings loosely on anchors. Consumer states that the portion of the seat that cracked in half was a plastic or fiberglass part that connected to the seat to the bolts on the floor, the seatback consequently rocked back and forth freely, and the driver in a relaxed position, would be almost reclined, therefore having to pull on the steering wheel to maintain a normal, upright driving posture.

The car is a convetrible hard top. When top is not onn the steering wheel and the front of the vehicle shakes out of control. When the top is on, this does not happen. Driver's seat rocks back and forth. Driver's side door, plastic tack to hold down rubber piece broke. Left rear bolt at catch is loose for hatchback. Vehicle pulls to the right with and without the top on. Interior lights sometimes do not go out when driver's door is closed.
