It's a Dodge, isn't it supposed to rattle?

All kidding aside, if you look at where the seat hinges and manipulate the seat do you see any play in the hinges or the latch mechanisms? Is there a stop for the seat back when it's in the upright and folded positions, maybe shim or replace those stops. Same goes for any bushing in the hinge. The latch itself should be fine if one of those other two areas needs to be addressed. If there are no stops, just the latch, try adjusting the latch to remove the play.

I dont seem to have this issue, however I did have a rattle once in while and it was the tire jack under the passenger seat.
