    I submitted this question to the folks at Dodge and received very corporate answer from the marketing which basicially said they never even though about it. My response back to them was why ANY Limited version of ANY car or SUV wouldn't include a power passanger seat option is beyond me. I like the Journey. It's a great size for our needs, fits into our patio home garage and imo looks pretty darn sharp. Call me crazy, but I just don't understanmd the logic, or lack of, behind having a "upscale" Limited version without certain upscale accoutrements.

    It's all about choices, would a power passenger seat sell more vehicles than under seat storage?
    People like their hiding spots.

    Thinking back to our old '00 T&C Ltd which had "power everything", I think the passenger seat was not powered, but manual. Pretty sure it was manual since there was no room under seat for a power unit with the video player located under the seat.

    Perhaps not at CF, but Ford, Chevy, Buick, Lincoln Kia, Hyundai, Mazda don't seem to have an issue putting power passanger seats in their midsized SUV's.

    I've owned a 90 Caravan ES, 98 Caravan Sport and 2007 T&C. All had power passanger seats.

    Do those vehicles also offer underseat storage?

    Do those vehicles have the physical space to accommodate the seat motor?

    So.... they understand a top of the line model should have a power seat, not some cheap platic storeage box under the seat.

    No, but I never understood the need for underseat storage with a glove box AND a console. I'd be willing to bet 90% of those are filled with stuff people have forgotten about.

    I think it's mostly because the traditional glove box and console spaces have gotten smaller, and I can't recall either of them being able to accommodate a ladies' purse or perhaps a smaller laptop bag.

    The center console in the 94+ Ram trucks is the only one I can recall that was large enough for that.

    Then go buy one instead of wasting the time of people here with your complaining and stubbornness against people that may WANT the underseat storage.

    I guess the question should be "does the person buying the vehicle need a powered passenger seat or underseat storage?"

    I've had one car with a powered passenger seat. It sits 99% of the time at it's rearmost limit of travel, because the primary passenger in that seat is my 6'6" son. But that's me - the lack of a powered passenger seat isn't a deal killer for me at any trim level.

    I actually prefer a non-powered seat for the passenger, it’s faster and easier to adjust. For the driver... I like the auto adjust.
