  • 63,000 miles
My passenger side seat manual track has broken. I cannot adjust it forward or backwards. There is a spring that fell off underneath. I put it back correctly just as it is supposed to go, but it did not fix the issue. The entire latching mechanism has failed. My 2007 Yaris had a recall for this same issue for the driver seat. The chassis for all model year Yaris' are the same. I believe the seat mechanisms we're continued to be built with a known issue. My car only has 63,000 miles and this seat is barely used.
