RonMaiden A couple more pics of the seatcovers;so far so good

Not so sold on the included center console cover but ok for now.

Just installed these on my 2012 SE, and they're very nice quality and good fit.

RonMaiden You can get the rear covers from the same place.

meattooth I have the sport seats and I found mine doing the same thing at 3000 mi..... I also found that the velcro on my cargo shorts was the culprit. Do you have velcro pockets?

Anyone know where we can order covers for the rear seat? I have a hyper-shedding dog!

RonMaiden I'll check and see if the seatbelt rubs there.

unclebrud I have experienced this with the left upper side bolster on the driver's side. It is probably from brushing against it when you get in or out. The bolsters are surprisingly deep, even on the S (I wonder if it's because this is an early car). I usually don't see this kind of wear on seats because I don't wear anything abrasive....though my 17-year old Miata is exhibiting similiar wear (but that's after 149k miles).

Anyway, I showed my dealer, they took pictures and (to my surprise) are going to replace the driver's seat cover. I have to say that, since last Fall, Ford has taken care of each problem that has cropped up. Very happy thus far....

ralck Ron,

It's hard to tell from the pictures, but is that about where the seatbelt would hit the seat as you are driving? Could there possibly be something weird with your seatbelt causing the issue rather than pants?
