With a vehicle still in warranty, I'd bring it back to the dealership. You can always remove the seat, turn it upside down, and see if you can determine the problem with the release. I suspect when the seat was down, it was pushed down hard to the point where the upper pressure from the foam inside the seats is pressing upward, applying a lot of force. Try pushing down on the seat back to lessen the pressure on the locking clasp.
