This can't be normal, right? I've put 300 miles on the car and I weigh 110 pounds.
I have the same thing on my tan leather within a week of ownership and they tell me it is normal.
Creased seats: "normal."
Poorly aligned panels: "normal."
And are you just accepting that? My plan is (was?) to be really annoying about this until they fixed it.
Don't forget normal wind noise.
For me it is not a big deal, I have had other expensive cars with the same problem. I have not pushed the service center at this point, maybe at my yearly I will bring it up again. For some reason it is only the front seats that have the problem.
Thanks for the info!
Think it's one reason they discontinued the ventilated seats.
nope not limited to perforated seats. Bolster in my lower seat cushion is creased after 1 month
I ordered mine a week before they discontinued them -- you'd think they'd have done me the favor of giving me the non-shitty seats...?
I had the same problem on my Model S. Took it into the service center. They steamed them. Everything tightened up. Problem solved. However, they are ordering me a new drivers seat. Why do this after the issue was solved? No idea but I'll discuss when I bring it in for replacement if it's necessary.
Wife is considering an X because we love my S so much I was here doing research and I can across your thread. Since our seat are identical I'd imagine the steaming process will work. I have black leather
I got mine in March and already had the creases on seats. Not sure if it got worse during last month. Last week i visited SC on my appointment who told me same thing, its normal but if i insist they can change the whole seats but he said it will happen again in one month. i thought they can fix easily with some adjustment. Will try to upload some photos
Now i ask myself if i should go ahead and replace the seats and what if this happens again in one month then is it worthwile to throw this new sets of seats for no reason?
blah. One of the reasons i refused delivery was due to creased seats and loose leather.
Seems like its going to inevitably happen anyways. That's gonna suck.
A shame really cause the leather on the model S wasn't great but it wasn't horrible.
They already told you it will happen again in one month...
They can say whatever. if u you follow them, any cosmetic issue on tesla is normal. And another statement that don't compare American cars with European car as standard of American car is lower
What i want to understand if most of the people having same issue whose car seats were in good condition when took delivery. Issue is that i had many creases already so i cant say if this would really happen but if this is the trend then i would reconsider.
My SC said that Tesla is redesigning the seat so it doesn't wrinkle so much. I don't have this issue, but due to the redesign, they can't order me a new seat yet that was scratched on delivery.
I noticed something out of the ordinary by day 3. The driver seat leather seems to have bunched up in one section at the bottom. The passenger seat looks much like my memory at car delivery -- nothing to note. In short, I think I have the issue others are describing -- it just hasn't turned into a crease yet -- I know it will, though. I'll revisit when the X returns from Xpel.
Is this common?
My Model S next gen seats.
Car has 8k miles.
Passenger seat looked like that at delivery.
Mine appears different. This is the driver's seat. Essentially bunching up toward one corner. First week of driving. Passenger seat looks good.
It is possible this was there upon delivery, and we overlooked it.
Any others seen this on their new X?
