Driver's seat separated from anchor. Dealer has been notified.

problem #4

May 211999


  • miles
On the driver's seat a weld snapped and the drivers seat is no longer stable. The car can be driven but we were told it was not under warranty any longer due to the mileage. We feel that this is a manufacturers defect and it should be corrected by the company. I intend to send a letter to the company also.
