 Description of the problemI was driving in my car when i noticed my seat moved when i turned the vehicle. Upon arrival home, i found i could move the entire seat and it was no longer properly attached to the track assembly. Right around the same time, the electric height adjustment on the drivers seat also broke - and broke through the seat and now is exposed - i can see 3 of the spokes of the wheel. If i raise the height of the seat, the entire seat shifts and leans against the drivers side door. If i lower the seat all the way to the ground, the seat moves closer to the "center" of where it should remain. However, the seat is always slanted and the entire drivers seat piece is skewed. My husband actually has torn his pants on this exposed equipment when driving my vehicle!! Neither my husband nor i am heavy people (less than 200lbs each); surely this vehicle was designed to withstand the weight of a 185lb individual. This is a huge safety issue - there are hundreds of posts of similar experiences on the official pontiac website blog page. In addition, there are more similar seating posts found on various diy auto repair blogs online. I cannot afford $1000+ for the dealership to repair my car - or pay $850 for a junk yard replacement seat and track repair from a collision repair shop. Nor can i allow my teenager to drive this car in this type of condition. This should be repaired by pontiac as part of yet another recall - it is a major safety issue. God forbid i am in a car accident - i will go flying out of my car because of this defect.

  • What is Recall?

    A recall is when a product is removed from the market or a correction is made to the product because it is either defective or potentially harmful.
  • What is Failure?

    Failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success.
