Re: rear seat assist handles

I haven't checked mine, but somebody did report one pulling out and pulling down part of the headliner.

I don't know if they reported how it was handled by the dealer.

I had one handle that was like thar - rear seat on passenger side. Other side and both front seat handles are fine. Dealer is fixing it. Definitely not how it's supposed to be.

Re: rear seat assist handles

Just got back bfrom dealership the service advisor looked at the rear assist handles lined them up and pushed till they snapped obviously the factory forgot, I also had the tires rebalanced, the steering wheel shook violently from 65 to 80 on most roads, they replaced 1 tire, I had a similar problem on my 2012 and finally I had the uconnect upgraded to 3.19.0 the unit seems more responsive then before,I also talked too several mechanics you all need to keep a check on any oil leaks on the hemi it seems there is a filter issue which could include brand new vehicles and those that have had their vehicles serviced

Re: rear seat assist handles

One side of one of the handles was not seated correctly and when you pulled it felt loose. All I had to do was line it back up and give it a hard push with the heal of my hand and it snapped in place. Feels tight and secure now. But I'll keep an eye on it.

Re: rear seat assist handles

The V6 has seen some filter changes, don't know about the hemi. If the wrong one is used it will fit, but it will leak.

I don't think its an oil filter issue with Chrysler V8's. Its the engine casting which is supposed to seal the oil filter. On my current Summit V8, previous 2012 Overland V8 and a 2000 WJ Limited V8, I always have to crank the oil filter on real tight to prevent it from having an oil leak. And I've tried other oil filter brands. I've never in my life had this problem on any other vehicle other than the 3 above. I did have a 2005 Dodge Magnum with the hemi but I traded it before I did the first oil change, but I bet I would have had the same problem with it. I always dread when it comes due for an oil and filter change. Its worse than going to the dentist.
