Driver's seat adjusters release while driving and the seat goes all the way backwards. Temperary loss of control because pedals cannot be reached. Incident has occurred at least 10 times and at all speeds encluding when one is safely coming to a stop. Driver is suddenly thrown backwards when seat cushion tract adjuster fails. When trying to park and driver turns to look out of back window the seat slides all the way back just because of the weight shift of the driver. When in motion and this happens the car veers out of control until driver can regain control again. The temporary out of control situation is due to driver not being able to reach pedals and the shock of sudden seating position being changed unexpectedly.
