Re: passenger seat position
On the recliner mechanism for a two-door car there will be a latch to hold the seat back in place. It sounds like the latch is either failing to engage or if it does latch will not stay in place.
Without seeing the problem, my guess is either adjustment is needed (sometimes possible depending on the design) via the cable or linkage release to the handle on the top of the seat, or a spring has failed or become detached so the latch won't stay in place. Either way not an easy thing to get to or to disassemble unless you know what you're doing. Unless somebody has had a similar problem, maybe best left to the dealer or your garage. I assume you no longer have any warranty?
