Default Burton Cartels breaking

Has anybody had any problems with 2014 cartels? I bought a pair, and they are pretty decent bindings functionally, but they have broken twice in the ~10 days I have used them. First time the plastic piece on the ratchet broke, and I just picked up a new one in the mountain rental shop. Seemed like a cheap part, but no biggie, easy to replace.
Then yesterday, my highback lean adjuster broke through the highback. It ripped totally through the foam and came out. The construction just doesn't seem very sturdy.
Anybody else had similar problems? Not sure if I should call Burton for new parts or just send the things back to Backcountry and get some 390 Bosses instead. I really don't want to wait 2 weeks with Backcountry for the return.
