Seat covers replaced

Has anyone recently had the seat covers replaced on your SRT? I had mine replaced today under warranty and there is big difference between the new covers and my headrest and arm rest as well as my rear seat...

Seat covers replaced

Just had my front passenger seat re-dyed due to an exploded pen that dropped ink on my sepia Laguna. Looks phenomenal again! Very happy! And very affordable.

How? Color? Texture? I have quite a bit of color transfer with only about 5500 miles on MY15 SRT so I've been thinking about replacement (ouch!) or a dye attempt.

And mine was sepia Laguna vs blue jeans even after multiple washes. Horrifying to find and I've tried several cleaning attempts. I sit on a towel while wearing dark clothes now which makes me wish for a dark color leather despite loving my current color.

I get color transfer too but I wipe the seats every few weeks to stay on top of it and as you can see in the pics above, it is possible to keep them sepia. I use zaino leather in a bottle conditioner and a white microfiber towel. It has worked quite well.

Re: Seat covers replaced

Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a try. I fear the existing damage sat too long as I've tried multiple products without any luck. These days it's getting attention weekly to minimize or prevent additional dye transfer.

Cheers

Re: Seat covers replaced

Sadly the product didn't help my seat. Dealership took pictures to send to FCA for approval of seat cover replacement as I also have sagging leather with only 6k miles present.

Re: Seat covers replaced

Bummer. Guess too much dye transfer into the leather. Once you get it fixed, they last if you clean them every few weeks. Takes just a few minutes. My '15 sepia seats still look brand new

Thanks! My seats are cleaned weekly now (along with the whole jeep) although previously it was still done every 2-3 weeks. I'm hoping for a replacement due to the sagging leather which would solve the dye transfer issue too. Will update the thread after I hear back from FCA via the dealer.

Re: Seat covers replaced

My drivers seat has some accelerated wear mainly drivers side, and the middle seat insert has excessive wear as in looking shiny in the suede.

sagging side bolster and lines cracking of the clear.

I got 79k on it, I doubt lighting will strike twice for me FCA replaced the entire dash under good faith. at 72k
