Re: Summit Interior: Quality???

^^^ I agree, anyone with seats wearing already on a 2011 model year are obviously getting in and out of your car wrong and you are causing the wear. Anytime I see someone get in a car by slamming their fat ass in the side bolsters then dragging their body into the center of the seat is going to destroy any seat. Weight obviously plays a roll in this but im not gonna go there lol. The best way to get in and out of your car that will NEVER cause wear is by sitting down directly in the middle of the seat without putting any of your weight on the side bolsters. I have had probably 15 different cars all with leather and none of them ever showed signs of wear. I have had all sorts of brands so its not just certain manufacturers.
Imagine a seat with 200lbs of almost sandpapery jeans being dragged across it. Change the way you get in and out of the car and your problem will be solved.
Hope this helps.

James

Re: Summit Interior: Quality???

Hey Everyone,

I wanted to post pictures of my seat wear as well. Also, I talked to my dealership today and was told that Chrysler authorized the replacement of my seat BOTTOM. Immediately after he said this, I checked the seat back and notices that there's some slight wear on the bolsters? Oh boy... I will start with the bottom replacement first.

Thanks!

PS: Not sure what I'm doing, but the pics won't post on this thread. Please check them out over at the "Seat Wear At 12,000" thread.

Check out other related threads. Some with this issue have had numerous other cars with leather seats and never had the problem before the WK2. Seems unlikely they plop/slide into their GC differently from their other vehicles.
