Wasn't sure where to put this.

Anyone else have an issue with their seat coming loose? When accelerating or stopping quick the seat would rock back (acc) or slide (brake) not a ton but I definitely felt it.
Dealer said it's because they used rivets for the seat brackets and they wear out with no way to tighten. They are having a shop take care of it, redrill/rivet or weld is my guess.
So this happen to anyone else?

I have a similar problem. Happens on high speed turns as well. I'd like to get it fixed, but I couldn't figure out where the problem was.

They said the OEM replacement part was $1300 or can be found used for $600. I will ask if they have part name/number when I pick it up.

IIRC there was even a TSB on the seat rails having a weld that cracks or something. I never paid that much attention since mine doesn't (yet...) have the symptoms.

Got the Speed back today, apparently the repair shop was unable to fix the problem and the dealer is only willing to split the cost of the replacement part, still $650 out of pocket. So as you may guess I'm just going to deal with it for now. He is going to get me the part numbers so I can try to find a deal.
