Hi Guys
Well, I was just wondering, have you had to take your car back for any warranty work yet?

My passenger seat still squeaks, so it will have to go back, but just cannot find the time...other than that, all is ok at the minute.

I have found that putting the seat in the most forward position will stop the noise. It's almost as if the ratchet under the seat doesn't engage properly in some of the back positions..causing it to make an eeee aaaaaw sort of a noise.:rolleyes:

I took my car in about the 'ghost passenger' among other things. Apparently it's not a fault (and I should have read the manual...), it's supposed to be green if nobody is sat there, it's just confusing because the rear alerts are red when there are no passengers. Hope that makes sense.

Mine did the same! Didn't have to put it in the most forward position, just one notch further forward - that cured it.
Still needs to be addressed...not tried that however, will next time I am in the car.

That's not correct, I suspect it's the dealer fobbing you off. If you get someone to sit in the passenger seat and move about a bit, the alert will keep changing from green to red and back again. There's definitely a poor connection in there somewhere, don't know whether it's in design or manufacture. Suspect design as practically everybody, it seems, has the problem (including me).
