I was cleaning out the 500 this morning and I was shocked to find one of the two bolts completely lose holding rear seat in place. It was hanging there and when I touched it it just fell out see pictures. Now I am upset as one side was completely loose what if my young child was strapped in back there and I had to make hard stop. This is not good everyone. Now I wonder are there other loose bolts? My love and excitement for this little 500 has stopped. Remember this bolt is not burried away its just right there in the back seat. What kind of QC do they have at the factory?

Hi

Thanks for posting the pics. I don't know how serious an issue a loose bolt like that might be, but I double checked mine today, just to make sure everything was OK.

Regards

Pat

Well, if it makes you feel any better, the plastic under engine tray on my '10 Subaru Forester lost two of its mounting bolts within the first month of ownership! Even 'assembled in Japan' vehicles can have their share of boo-boo's!
