It happens, not often but it does happen

Next time that you take it in for service, just mention it
it may just need a bit of Mopar lube or a slight adjustment, or both

Mine squeaked since brand new. they said they had to tighten some bolts on the seat. Just let your service advisor know next time its in for service and i am sure they will fix it up for you.

I had the same problem. Here's what the dealer did:

They loosened the bolts on the seat, then they had another person sit in the seat (for applied pressure) as they re-torqued the bolts. Squeak gone. BTW: The dealership told me a plastic gum wrapper was stuck between the seat bracket and floor/rug. Hmmm...really? They said the wrapper caused the squeak. Really? I was able to replicate the noise by reefing on the back of the seat (jiggle it left to right). How could the noise be caused by a gum wrapper? The service writer DID NOT put that into his report.

Those damned gum wrappers! They're also the cause of my poor gas mileage! Dodge told me that a gum wrapper got stuck behind the accelerator linkage causing the RPM's to come up, hence the low mpg's!

:gy:Silly dealerships.

So just mention it to the dodge people?
Just a quick question. I was wondering if you have had to replace the Tork Converter?

I also have a 2011 Dodge Longhorn and only have 1900 kms but it appears that this is a standard problem with this year?

Thanks,

Ed

Thanks for the update on the seat issue. My seat does the same thing when I'm driving down the road. When I take it in for next service I will let them know.

Hopefully it's a quick fix...
