Mines the same, however my car is over 2 years old.The leather has started to peel in the part where my lower back sits on the seatAgent Cooper said:Yesterday, I was putting leather conditioner on my MCS seats and noticed that the surface of the leather on the driver's seat by the door was peeling off. Also, where the seat belt rubs against the seat had worn out the threads where the seat is stitched together. The air bag is inside the seat at that area, so I went to the dealer and they are going to replace the seat cover under warranty. My concern is whether this is going to happen again with the replacement seat cover. I've only had the car 6 1/2 months and it only has 5800 miles. I'm VERY careful getting it and out of the car, not to rub against the seat.
I deliberately got factory leather instead of aftermarket leather because I thought the factory would use better quality leather. My other cars with leather seats didn't get to this kind of wear for 6-7 years, not 6-7 months. The leather appears to be coated with a plastic colored film instead of being full grain leather. The film is what seems to be peeling off.
Has anyone else had this problem? What did you do to protect the leather from scuffing?
It's booked in at the dealers next week, hopefully to be replaced under warranty.
