My driver seat has broken also - I know other people who own Jeeps, and they have had similar problems.
Chrysler had to know that there are several things on these vehicles that had problems, but are too cheap to fess up to the problems.
The brakes and rotors, the tail lights that go out every month, the door lock actuators (I've replaced all 4) the oil pressure gauge etc. - all too common a problem, and all should have had a recall - I've tried dealing with Chrysler reps, and they all have excuses and deny that these are too common a problem, so that they can sell parts and not have to go back and fix their screw ups.
I love the Jeep and its looks, but these pesky little expensive problems are inexcusable - I guess we need to wake Ralph Nader up to get something done. How dangerous is it to be driving along and then your seat breaks right off of the track? Even a GEO or that Russian junker that was around didn't have seats that break loose. What happens (God forbid) if you are in an accident and the seat breaks loose, I guess you get strangled by the seat belt.
This is why Chrysler is having problems and why Daimler wants to unload them. This is why the American auto manufactures are suffering; they just can't or won't build something to last like Toyota, Honda, Nissan. Well my next one won't be a Chrysler product that's for sure, so "here is another nail in your coffin Chrysler", you are your own worst enemy!!!
