Back seat fell during quick deceleration

Had to hit the brakes when another car moved into my lane and the rear seat in my '10 Camaro fell forward hitting the back of my drivers seat hard. I knew the rear seat could be lowered but in the 15 mo. and 18k miles I've owned it I have never tried it and have never notice the two latches being anything but flush. I'm guessing the items in my trunk slid forward hitting the rear seat. Seems like this could be a big issue in an accident with a rear seat passenger. Anyone else have this issue?

If you do not see yourself using the pass through and are concerned about it being a hazard, mount it solid. I have had this happen once, but that was from not securing the seat properly. I have the 2 10" speakers back there so objects can not come from the trunk on mine, there is enough space between the seat and the speaker box for my katana & thats about it.

it probably just wasn't fully latched...I can't imagine that happening if anyone was sitting back there.

Can't see it being an issue. Have a dealer make sure the latches are not faulty if you feel it is a problem
