Driver's seat bushings wear out. Took several attempts to convince dealer to repair. Happened by 60000 miles.
Bought the car with 24k miles in 2009. Seat issues started somewhere around 60k, but complete rocking back and forth around 72k. Original quote to fix while getting airbug recall check was $450.
Replacing the bushings is only a temporary fix due to the poor design of the seat adjustment mechanism. They will break again. There are more permanent DIY fixes on internet forums.
Both left and right front compliance bushings are cracked - the driver side is cracked all the way through. The car sounds like an old jalopy when driving on uneven gravely roads or terrain.
