problem #1

When front seats are pushed back fully there are razor sharp metal rails exposed. There are plastic covers installed that are equally sharp and catch on soes, clothing and skin. Both my husband and I have drawn blood on our shins several times. I have attempted to resolve with Jeep and they advise there is nothing they can do.
