I drive a 1998 Taurus. I've driven it for almost five years and never had this issue. Yesterday I took it for a short drive and errand. When I first got in my car, everything was normal. I parked it on a quiet residential street and left my purse sitting in the passenger seat (I felt safe doing this because the street was deserted, I live in a small town, it was sunny early morning, and I was only going to be inside for 15 minutes). I made sure all the doors were locked. I came back out to my car 15 minutes later, unlocked it, got inside, and immediately felt something was "off." The driver side seat was reclined and scooted back about 2-3 inches and I could no longer reach the pedals. My purse was still sitting where I left it, apparently untouched. I searched some car forums to see if anyone else had this issue, and came up with a few possibilities. It could be a "memory" seat adjustment returning to its place. Except my car does not have a memory seat feature. It could be the "easy exit" activating. Except my car does not have the "easy exit" feature. It could be my thighs accidentally touched the seat adjustment lever. Except this has never happened before and I am positive I didn't touch the levers getting in or out. Also, I would have had to pull them back, not just put pressure on them. It could be my seatbelt hanging up on the lever and moving it. Except my seat belt is pretty loose (it doesn't fully retract when unworn) and I always place it straight down next to the seat when I exit the car. If someone was pranking me, it seems like there would be evidence of the car being broken into, and my purse wouldn't still be there. Do I have a poltergeist? Anyone have a rational explanation, or has this happened to anyone else? Thanks in advance!
