    Default Drivers side seat backrest, material rubbing

    My March 07 drivers side seat fabric is starting to rub and bobble on the backrest. I guess it because you rub against as you exit the car. It did on my previous 04 model towards it's 3rd year and I justed shaved it off.

    I know that rub tests are performed on car fabrics during development and are probably tested as part of QC.

    As the car is only 6 months old I do not think it should rub already.

    Has anyone had the same problem and what was done about it?

    Default Drivers side seat backrest, material rubbing

    The drivers seat is to be replaced. But, guess what, it is being done as a goodwill gesture, as it due to wear and tear, not a manufactoring fault. But they have not even tested the fabric. They are just full of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
