    Driver Side Seat bottom material cracking and coming apart.

    Thought this might have been addressed but don't remember. I have a 2013 500 sport, my driver side seat is cracking and now has a piece of it is gone. I had taken my car in for service and pointed this out to the service advisor, i asked if this would be covered under any warranty. He told me that " this is a problem and he had seen alot of this and that fiat told them that is just a normal wear and tear item". Any help or info on this from anyone on the forum and the fiat cares advisor(Erica) would be great. I have only 25k miles on the car and would like to think that the interior would've lasted longer than this. Love the car, she has won me alot of awards at a bunch of car shows, she gets a "poo pot full compliments". Thanks for the help on this matter.

    I have the same issue (62,000 miles on mine) but it has been happening for a while. I checked with Harper on a service visit and was advised that it is considered a wear item and is only covered for 12 months/12,000 miles. I agree that it shouldn't be wearing out like it is though.

    You of all people I would have thought had picked up some abarth seats by now. Either that it maybe an upholstery shop and get them redone in a custom vinyl.

    Our 87 Camry seats at 180,000miles still look new. Go figure.

    You could have an upholstery shop just replace that section. I've done it on a 66 Mustang.
    2013 Fiat 500 Sport AT, Xpel Ultimate Clear Bra, 3M Crystalline Window Tint, Black top stripes, Black "500" (wide) side stripes. Fiat "500" Stainless door sills by Mopar. BlueTooth music streaming. OBDII BlueTooth Torque gauges streaming to smart phone. BF Goodrich Sport Comp II tires, STS rear sway bar, Euro+Drive NA 500 Tune, BMC reusable air filter and Spare Tyre with cover.

    Blast to drive! 25 years newer than last car!

    Hi spotman. Yes, the seats coverings are a wear and tear item. If you would like to PM me your VIN, contact info, and the name of the studio you're currently working with, I can look into your specific situation further and see if there is anything that I can do to assist.
