poor quality leather

Has anyone had issues with the leather quality? My car is a week old and already found a couple tiny spots where I get in.

Do you carry a knife with you? lol

Yeah, that seems odd. I don't know what to say, my leather has been fine.

I would make sure that your clothes dont have anything that is ripping the seats or that you dont have anything dangling like a wallet chain. That looks something beyond clothing/wear and tear.

No don't carry a knife. The only thing I can think of is a button on my work pants? They're khakis

Like all leather, even nice quality (which our cars dont have) you still have to be mindfull of belts, keys, rivets, buttons and zippers on jeans, etc.

The dealer traded out my seat covers without batting an eye when they looked to not be wearing very well.

Use conditioner on your leather and try not to slide on it too much.
That's really all you can do.
ALL leather seats get "worn" eventually.

I don't know, plastic button on khakis? I wouldn't expect that to do it, I was thinking like those metal ones on the front little pockets of jeans would be an issue if they were on the back.

Also, from the angle and position, it could be from your left foot entering the car or your right foot leaving the car.

Poor angle picture. That's actually higher up. Foot would never get near the spot. picture should be rotated clockwise once for proper angle. Picture was taken with my phone.

My other theory would be moving the seat forward/backward for backseat entry. Maybe someone had a ring on their finger or just rough getting out with belt rubbing? Just guessing

Mine has marks like that too. I'm at about 26,000 miles and it is just from getting in and out with a jacket or something that has a zipper, button, etc. I don't mind and the leather is no where near close to actually being torn. Just the product of getting in and out of your beautiful camaro!!

Wow!

Thanks for posting those pictures. I am truly sorry to see this concern with the leather inside your vehicle. Have you taken the vehicle in for an inspection? I'd be more than happy to research this matter and assist in getting a visit scheduled for you. Feel free to private message me!

OP, from what I can tell, those pictures clearly are not normal wear and tear... They are definately scratches from something tho.

This is the issue I had with my leather seat after about a 10,000 miles of driving. I only weigh around 135lbs, I do wear jeans, but still. This shouldn't happen.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=288456

The dealership looked at it for about a minute than ordered me a new seat cover. It took them a little while to swap them out, but it's nice having a brand new seat cover.

Looks like damage from a pant seam rivet. You usually have them at pocket corners, and they are sometimes sharp

paint seam rivet? never even knew what that was..
I wonder if fabric paint would least hide it a bit with the bits underneath from what pulled up.
