    Pulled the handle in the center area and tipped it on back...works fine for me!

    Well we have an answer,, YES I am an idiot.. I have drove this car for 14000 miles, I make parts for this car.. and up till just now did not know there was a handle on the right side of the seat

    On the passenger side when I raise the lever on the top of the seatback it reclines ( now that I know the lever is there I can see the lower lever move when I pull on the top lever ), But not on the drivers side, don't know if its designed that way or not just figured Italians sit to darn straight up

    hehe... click play then press the # 6 and it will jump to about 45 seconds into the video, around 48-49 it shows and demos the handles. There are several that don't realize they are there for awhile.


    I had to come back and add that if this seat was not able to adjust and was that upright I would HATE it and never have bought the former 2012 Sport in 2011 or certainly not the 2013 Abarth back near the end of 2012. I HATE driving in any vehicle that has too upright a seating position, my grandfather had a small Ford Ranger and with no extra cab the seats barely moved and it was and is a horrible vehicle to ride in for anything longer than MAYBE 5 minutes as far as I am concerned. 14K, not a snowballs chance in you know where!!! Sure glad you asked the question and have a solution my friend...now you can actually enjoy the car!

    LOL!!! Okay, that's pretty funny.

    But don't feel too bad. A buddy had to move our friend's mom's car (full-size GM of some sort). So he pulled the tilt steering down, moved the car, and gave her back the keys. A couple days later, she called him asking what he did to her car. Apparently she didn't know it had tilt steering, and had been driving it for a couple years like a bus. haha So if you can imagine a short Oriental lady driving a full-size GM like a bus... lol

    Check the posts above... he had missed the centrally located adjustment handles.
