I have changed the drivers seat trim panel many times now where it is held by 4 cheaply made plastic tabs then add insult to injury charge over a $100 for a cheap piece of plastic the size of a small dinner plate. When this breaks the seat adjuster switch is exposes the electric contacts to touching the seat frame and shorting drains the battery or worse case may start a fire, if Chrysler is going to be allowed to make such a poorly engineered part to start they should at least offer a reasonably affordable replacement, this replacement shouldn't cost more than 20 bucks

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.
