Drivers seat leather damage

Post by Baronoli » Fri Feb 07, 2020 10:58 am

Hi All,

How are everyones seats holding up? I noticed on mine last night that a bit of leather has come away on the bolster. Looks a lot dryer than the passenger seat and seems more will come away. I've done 28k miles since Jan 2018, bit dissapointed with it if i'm honest. Anyone think I can claim on warranty?

I don't carry any sharp objects in my pockets and the car has been kept immaculate since I got it.

Mine is holding up well, 23k since Jan 18.

I'd still go for warranty cover tbh if I were you.

Mine was good at that milage too :(

Got it going into Vauxhall to fix my heater vent issue and they're going to photograph for Vauxhall to agreee/disagree with the warranty claim.

I understand if they don't accept as it looks malicious, but I am the only one who drives it and never have anything sharp on me!

I got a quote from a leather trimmers to repair, £160 most expensive quote and local up to £120 but a bit far away from me. I don't think they'll do anything at Vauxhall apart from claim I done it... But here's hoping.

On the heater vents, the driver ones basically hang down and they're not very good. I read the Pug 3008's aren't very powerful either, but they shouldn't hang down like mine do. Just checked one in the showroom when dropping my car off at the dealers and mine looks to be missing 4-5 lug screws!
