2005 Dodge RAM 2500 Seats Front Assembly Power Adjust Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID606042
 Internal NHTSA #10171049
 ModelRAM 2500
 Model Year2005
 File date28/09/06
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemThe driver seat mechanism failed during mild acceleration, causing the driver to be thrown backwards. The seat tilt mechanism has a plastic and metal gearbox that broke causing the seat to swing forward under braking and backward under acceleration. This causes control problems as the movement is about 1 foot. The dealer was pressured to replace the failed part and claims this is the first time it has ever occurred. The truck was 15 months old at the time of failure with 56,000 miles on the odometer. The part has not been improved, so i am looking at replacing this mechanism every 15 months! This seat tilt mechanism on the power seat is not designed properly. *nm
