leather seats

I just noticed this today on my SS2- the seat is not all leather, underneath- it is the standard cloth! Leather on top- but not on the side. Not happy about this Chevy!

I would take it back to the dealer and see a Senior Service Manager or the Group Service Manager who most probably will compensate you. Sale's Manager most probably wont do shit apart from chat shit to you. The seats should of been checked thoroughly at PDI stage (again, concerns service department)! Man im annoyed for you now! Im a service engineer an working for a well known automotive company for several years now.. I'd love to come with you and argue your case out! Anyway mate, good luck.

I see the problem. When you got the radio blasting you are supposed to bob your head. I think you're trying to shake your butt also and causing premature wear to the seats.

My seats did that too for the first couple of weeks. Those are just fine hairlike leftovers that didn't fully come off where the leather was perforated. They are like the "hanging chads" that Florida suffered on their Bush/Gore election ballots.

I wiped mine down with Meguiars's leather spray and a microfiber and it all came off. Hasn't come back since then.

The surface is perfect.

I agree. That's not leather wearing. It's either what TanandGreen said or cotton fibers from your clothing or something like that. Try what T&G said and post back with the good news....(I hope).

To address the cloth issue and leather on top only, these are leather appointed seats. Butt and Back only. The rest is "fake" leather and/or cloth.

I second this - I've had perforated leather on a few cars and have seen this. It's one of those two things, not a defect and easily fixed.
