  1. I just purchased the Dodge Journey 2020 SE and My wife is complaining that the passenger seat adjustable seat bar that is in the front of the seat sticks out beyound the seat cushion. See is 5 ft. tall and her legs have taken a few bangs against the bar. Why is it sticking out about 2” more than the seat? My old Chrysler Town & Country the bar is even with the front seat cushion. Not at all happy with this problem.
