    Have had this vehicle coming up on 3 years. Tested the seats once, used them down a couple of times, and everything worked fine. The next time the legs would not go down when the seat was flat, but will lock properly to hold the seat up when it is a seat. After research on a couple of Caravan fansites I bought a luggage strap, but still haven't put it on. I just put weight on the legs to keep them down.

    Front legs won't retract. A piece of hard plastic that latches closed is broken. Cable linkage and springs appear to be fine.
