Rattling noise second row bucket seat backrest vibrating
I have been hearing the tinkling/rattling noise in my PACHY since I bought the car when no one was seated in that seat. The noise occurs while driving the PACHY on little rough surface road and when no one is sitting in the second row seats as the backrest is vibrating. Finally, I was able to get the van to the dealer as my dealer is booked weeks in advance.
The dealer basically confirmed that the noise is there, it seems so basic that the bucket seat backrest is making the noise and is able to duplicate it. Next, he told me they tried on two other brand new PACHY in stock and it makes the same noise on bucket seat backrest vibration when van was driven on rough surface on highway. One resolution he provided is to keep the seat folded then the noise goes away. Can you believe a $50,000 car dealer giving this solution. Bottomline, he is like you have to live with it until Chrysler gets enough complaints and they "may" decide to come up with a solution.
I had Camry, Accord, Odyssey and a Lexus LS ..... never have I had such tick-tick body sounds, my Odyssey was 180,000 miles but never such bucket seat noise even though they have magic seat. Not sure, what I got myself into.
Has anyone else with a 2018 PACHY noticed the sound, it is a vivid tick-tick-tick sound and the dealer confirmed it is from the bucket seat when no one is sitting on it. Two ways it goes away, one if someone is sitting so they can hold the seat backrest firm while sitting or two if the seat is folded.
