My 2003 GT is the same. Back of drivers seat has a pocket and passenger seat doesn't. On both seats the backing on mine is a fuzzy cloth material or carpeting, whatever it is. When I first got the car I thought it was strange but after hearing about all the things they omitted from the 2003 model year I still thought it was strange. How much could the extra pocket cost?[:I]

Did the front passenger seat fold forward flat in previous years? If not, that could be the reason DC omitted the pocket and added the hard plastic backing. It is a great feature. I have moved several items that were about 8' long by folding down the rear seat the folding forward the front passenger seat. Extremely versatile vehicle.

The reason is because of the fold down feature on the front pass side.

Cruisergt is correct, if you notice your front seat will fold down so in case you carry seomthing long, and put in on the seat, the plastic is more durable than the material. some things they actually do think through.

Supposedly the hard plastic on the back of the passenger's seat will work as an extra surface for the driver, if they want to drive around with their passenger seat folded down. Kinda like a TV tray or something.

I have an 01 Limited. The passenger seat folds flat and both seat backs are the same (carpet & map pocket).

'02 Limited here and I have the same thing. Probably just another example of DMC going cheap. A small change like this probably adds up to tens of thousands of $$ on a long production run.
