2006 Volkswagen JETTA Seats Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Description of the problemAbout a week ago, i noticed my driver's seat was too far forward, so i used the seat adjustment controls to move it back to where it was comfortable. Almost immediately and periodically throughout the week, whether i was driving (highway or local), stationary, or stopped (with the engine turned off!), the seat back would move back and forth, sometimes lunging forward 4-6 inches and then back about 10 inches. This caused me, while driving, to be pressed almost on the steering wheel or at full arms-length, back and forth numerous times. Sometimes pushing one/any of the setting buttons would stop the rocking for a short time; sometimes it had no effect. This issue is of serious safety concern to me as it makes steering and braking/accelerating very difficult and not controllable. There must be a recall on this model as this problem has been reported on this site since the model first came out in 2006! It is unconscionable that no recall has yet been issued.
