has anyone else had issues with seat covers showing signs of extreme wear in short time that you've had vehicle, my car is going in this week to have seat covers changed by ford as drivers one has worn badly so they are changing the covers under warranty, must admit I was surprised when they told me covers are listed in spares catalogue.

No, mine has been fine too thankfully. Have you had it back yet? I wouldn't have thought changing the covers was an easy job?

Does it look good now? Mine have worn in fine, 8,000 miles on the clock. How long have you had yours for / how many miles on the clock?

Hi figgnas, this is an old topic on pre-facelift Ecosport 2015. Welcome to the forum.

Cloth seats....pre-facelift
At that time Ford kept changing the cloth on the car seats on every model and every year, especially the zetec base model. Problems with poor cloth and on zetec light grey cloth was the problem.

I bought the zetec model in 2016, but as it was a 1.5 petrol model instead of the 1.0 petrol model the seats were all black rather then the 'very wearing and showing stains' with the poor grey finish. The reason for the cheap grey was to show that you had bought the cheapest model, causing a lot of people to buy higher trim models instead. It is a cheap trick by car manuafacturers to put poorer products in to differentiate base model from better trim models. Not good at all.

Leather seats....
As for leather seats, which I have actually never owned in my lifetime of cars, was due to the price of the leather seats, the coldness of your arse in winter :D the stickiness of same in summer (Yuk! say no more), the eventual bagginess of the seat base which makes a car look really worn and aged,

Well there is a rule for that one....
You should only buy leather seats on a car with ridges on the base to avoid bagginess. for example...


On the newer facelift Ecosport (2007 onwards) there has been improvements of cloth finish compared to earlier models.

So do you have wear on your own seats?

Hello. I bought a used Ford. I don't know what the previous owner of the car was, but the seats are very worn out. I originally wanted to buy leather seats. I remembered that my wife wants to buy harness lingerie in the MarieMur store and wears such lingerie for a very long time. But now I have my doubts. Guys, maybe leather is not the best option for car covers? Share your experience. Thank you all in advance.
