Major design flaw

Anytime I drop something between the seat and center console, the item slides under the seat. I can't just reach down between the seat and console and grab what I dropped. I have to wait until I stop, then look under the seat for the item. I hope this is addressed with a TSB soon.

Re: Major design flaw

This flaw can only be remedied by a full driveline swap, don't settle for any less.

Smile Re: Major design flaw

Perhaps you can fabricate a safety net between the seat and console!

Longer fingernails on right hand should do it.

Re: Major design flaw

Nothing worse than dropping a french fry, reaching down with out looking and picking it up, only to find out the hard way that you have picked up one that was dropped weeks (or months) ago.

Re: Major design flaw

I think I've seen something to remedy this in a SkyMall or similar catalogue. It's basically a pillow you shove in that little gap.

But yeah, it's a major oversight by the designers and should result in a full recall and interior redesign. I'll never buy a Jeep again!

Re: Major design flaw

Try driving erratically, swerve from lane to lane, brake hard, stomp on the gas, then brake hard, this should dislodge the item and send it into the foot well. Of course then it could be lodged under the brake and/or gas pedal
