Bought my Crosstrek in November and have lowered the rear seat backs maybe three times since then. Yesterday, when returning the seat back to the upright position, I noticed it would not latch. I looked at the plastic seat release toggle on the top of the seat back and it will no longer move up and down. Anyone else had this problem? I'm thinking it will have to be replaced :(

Usually when a seat doesn't latch, I check for objects and seat belts obstructing them from fully seating (no pun intended). After that, I give it a good whack until it latches. But your problem sounds more involved than that.

If the latch really no longer moves, I would bring it to the dealer to let them sort it out.

Just take it to the dealer and have them replace it. All manufactures have defects, so you probably got a bad one.
