Upon starting vehicle power operated window on driver's side automatically goes down facing the ground. At night consumer thinks nothng is behind when actually looking at the ground. Consumer feels this is dangerous. Front drivers seat automatically reclines back while driving. Once a small child was pinned in behind front seat and the back seat. Windshield wipers work intermittently, sometimes they come on and sometimes they won't.

The driver's side power seat broke, causing the entire seat assemly to rotate backwards about 20 degrees. The vehicle was stopped and the engine was not running. I got into the drivers seat thru the left front door and, as I reached back to grab the shoulder belt, the seat assembly lurched backwards. It was as if the seat had turned into a rocking chair. The seat back and seat cushion were fixed at about a 90 degree angle, but the whole seat assembly could be rotated backwards about 20 degrees from the vertical. The recline and tilt features still work, but the seat will not move all the way back and it cannot be raised or lowered. I checked under the seat and there were several pieces of what looked to be a shattered metal flange or bracket of some type. Obviously, a piece of the seat assembly had broken which would allow the seat to rotate backwards if one pushed on the top of the backrest or accelerated quickly while seated in the moving vehicle.
