Unhappy Driver Seat wont lock into upright position

I have a 2013 Fiat and, all of a sudden when I got in yesterday, the driver seat reclined! When I tried to get it into "driving" position, I found myself laying down again! WTH? Has anybody else had this problem? I may be a female but I'm pretty good at small fixes and this one has me baffled. HELP!

Re: Driver Seat wont lock into upright position

Sounds like something disengaged within the seat. Guess you'll need to see the dealership ...

Re: Driver Seat wont lock into upright position

I would be interested in knowing how Fiat respond to your problem.

My driving seat is creaking/squeaking and seems to move about when going over rough roads or speed bumps.

Fiat are saying that "seats are trim" and are not covered under warranty. I am currently awaiting a goodwill decision.

The franchised dealer did say that Fiat tend to dig their heels in on stuff like this, particularly seat problems.
