Yes it is - I am hoping its a "one off" and not a trend that I will see on the other side as well. I haven't even had anyone in the back seat..... Could have been there from the start just not sure

Edit: Looking really close at my passenger side and I can tell this will happen on that side as well, just hasn't been moved as much so the leather isn't stretched... maybe i have a set that's off but take a close look under the strap and see if you have any stress lines

Get that looked after. For what they charge for those seats they better be freaking perfect.

Why would he contact customer support before he goes to the dealer? If the dealer doesn't make it right then customer support.

Just looks like a flaw in the leather since the stitching isn't cut. Warranty will cover it. No big deal. May take awhile to get seat covers for those Recaros, though, since they are so new.

Going by the dealer Tuesday morning..... It will be interesting to see how they want to deal with this.
I still would like to know if anyone else is seeing this? Like I said I can see the very beginning of the issue on the other side and wonder if this will get worse as the strap gets moved.... you would hope that they tested this.....

To alert them that there is a problem. I didn't say don't go to the dealer, I would just alert customer care to let them know about the problem so MAYBE if it is happening a lot they could catch it and save a lot of other people the trouble.

That's for the dealer to do. Not a customer.

Looks like it needs some additional stitching. I bet they all have this issue.

Have you noticed any damage to your door panels since you got the car? My seat belt buckles are tearing mine to bits.

Looks like a friction burn. Maybe the seatbelt rubbed across the outside of the strap?

Good eye... looking at the the way the belt sits on the seat inside the loop I think you are right.... that would mean this is a design flaw... you can't keep the belt inside the loop when your pulling it to latch in.......
For those with Recaro's - you have been warned, be sure to "lift" the belt as your pulling it

For the Chevy Cust Svc that's on this string better get with your quality department fast otherwise I think you will start seeing a lot of warranty complaints with this if the seats continue to be shipped as is -

IMHO

Recaro Defect

Look what I found this morning......

It's not like my car spent 3 weeks in Quality Control or anything, oh wait - she did.

Mines doesn't look like that
...
But the way I yank/pull my seatbelt with force when buckling up, I can easily see it becoming a problem soon
...
I hate being heavy handed

I don't even think its from yanking on it. I never really have people in the back seat, so I guess it's from buckling/unbuckling and the belt dragging across the seat.

Tried it and you're right. You need to pull the seatbelt out before you can pull it down.

Wish I had known this earlier.

Sorry I didn't notice earlier!! Mine is well past yours...

One of the things I felt good about going into 2014 model was the platform (engine, etc.) hadn't changed so I didn't need to worry about "new design" issues..... never expected a Recaro/Chevy hook up to be in this category Honestly you would think this would have come up from the Recaro guys when they were shown how the seat would sit in the car......

Maybe not Recaro, but from the test mules at least.

If you look at how close your loop is to the edge I think this is the difference, 14 Recaro's have a lot of bulk for the seatbelt to rub...is the leather soft? I noticed the leather is REALLY soft on the shoulder pieces.

So I went to the dealer and they ordered "the back cover" - I clarified that they were going to reupholster and not just cover it up and they told me yes.... fixes the damage but not the design..... I also wonder how long I will be without the car.... sounds like a good winter project
