Has anyone had issues with the leather peeling or tearing on their seats??? I've had my car 4 weeks today! I'm under 500 miles and I noticed yesterday that the leather is peeling at a seam on the driver seat. It's a small area right now, but I know the area will increase in size with use. I'm just wondering if this has been a common issue.

This isn't the greatest pic. As I stated, it's a small area for now, but i'm sure it will increase in size with use.

I had a 2020 ST that split the seam on the drivers side, just got a 2022 so we’ll keep an eye on that

I lightly scratched (w finger nail) a piece of kid food stuck crumb something off the back seat and now have a white mark that won’t go away. Same color seen in your pic. Must be thin thin black coating

That's why I have seat covers. I am under no illusion that the seats will hold up over the next 5 years. I found this out with a Focus RS before this ST. Yes, there is a warranty but I just hate turning my car over to the dealership.

Which seat covers did you get?

From this company.. Seat Covers Unlimited.
They have Velcro that loops under the seats.There is a lot of stuff under our seats so it takes a little bit of finessing. They come in three parts.Back, bottom and head rests.
The heated part of seats are so hot that the seat covers really don’t change anything. I have not tried out the cooling of the seats yet because i live in the Sub-Arctic. It only started to warm up this week.
Should be fine.
