Just noticed this yesterday, had the car for a little over a year now. Have no clue what could have caused this? And as you can see from the picture i don't actually rub against that part of the seat when i'm driving. Any ideas?
So most likely it's my belt rubbing against it when getting in and out of the car. I assume the dealership won't do anything for me since it's my own wear and tear right? I'm just worried it's going to get a lot worse since its only been 1 year
I do know what you mean actually, because the top coat is almost has a plastic feel on that spot. So maybe it won't get any worse. If i do notice getting worse i may talk to the dealer about it
Hi xrazor. Do not assume the Dealer will do nothing. Normal wear and tear should not cause that sort of issue in a year. The leather/treatment was probably defective. Make a service appointment, take the car in and have it looked at. It should be replaced under warranty.
Concerning whether it will get worse: Yes, once the top clear protective micro-coating has worn away, it will definitely get worse over time. So have it looked at for warranty replacement.
And that advice goes for everyone, whenever we have an issue with our cars, while still under Warranty. We paid for the car, and the Warranty is part of the contract. If there is an issue, make an appointment and bring it in. Short of abuse or negligence, most warranty issues are usually covered.
The worst that can happen is the Dealer denies Warranty coverage. If that happens, we can ask for a justification as to why it was denied and contact Ford if necessary.
Let us know how you make out and good luck.
