Stratus 6-cyl

We had taken our car in to the Dodge dealer here in okeechobee. It was having a regular tune-up and misc other things done. The dealer had it for 2 days. Two days after I was taken my 70 year old father to his physical therapy class when the drivers seat back fell completely to the back seat in a laying down position. I was just proceeding out of my drive way. Thank god as if I was on the highway there could have been a fatal accident. I had not touched nothing on the seat mechanics before this happened. I called the dealer and nothing has been done about this as of yet. I knew there had to be someplace that would help me with this problem. Also that same car dealer ship rounded off the oil cap on the pan and they did fix that. The seat is still broken. I am not a large person nor is anybody that drives the vehicle so we still think it was either the mechanic at the car dealer ship or a faulty seat mechanism. This could have been a very dangerous incident had I not acted fast.
