2009 SES Coupe...driver side front seat Q?

Well, I finally took the plunge and bought a loaded 2009 SES coupe, 5-speed, black on black (with cloth) last Friday (6-5-09)! So far I'm REALLY loving the car, and I'll be sure to post up some pics up here soon (even though I know you all have already seen one before ).

There have been a few quirks here and there, but that's to be expected with any new car because you need to get used to everything. So, with that said, I know no two cars are the same (especially when it comes to make and model), but there's one little thing that is driving my nuts with my new Focus. Every time that I lean the driver side front seat up to gain access to the back seat it doesn't go back to the position that I originally had it in. Now, just to check, I've tried using both levers on the side of the seat just to make sure that I wasn't doing it wrong, but they both do the same thing. On every car that I've owned in the past, the lever that is closest to the back seat is what you need to pull in order to lean the seat forward. Then, when you put the seat back, it returns to the seating position that you originally had it at. Now, I know that this isn't that big of a deal, but I put A LOT of things in my back seat during the course of a day, and it's becoming a real pain to have to READJUST my seat EVERYTIME I get in my car. So, if anyone can help, I just wanted to know if this is normal, or does it sound like something is wrong with my seat? THANKS!
