yea I had a friend say something similar I couldn't believe it when they said it was my fault in some way it took me a better half of a yearwith fighting with Chrysler for them to replace the seat as it was charred my model was not included in the original recall regarding the laredo and overland because th limited was wrongfully marked with the wrong part number when you had the luxury package checked off with the attached leather
