Third Row Seat, Won't Stow
This bulletin has been released to prevent and correct an intermittent or partial unlatch of the 60 percent third row seat inboard latch while attempting to

Customers may experience an intermittent or partial unlatch of the 60 percent third row seat inboard latch while attempting to stow the seat. Customers
may experience the Third Row Power Seatback located in the folded position, on the seat cushion, preventing the seat from being used. A second attempt
