Default Overland leather unexplained seat wear at 15,000 is

My Leather drivers seat beading is wearing away the seat color & leather along the outer edge at the front & rear seat leather cover, Jeep have already replaced both drivers & passengers seat approx 3,000 K's ago but the new leather covers are doing the same thing. I have sat my fat arse on the seat in the driving position but the beading is no where near the leather cover & nothing is near the rear wear point. The dealer tells me that Jeep won’t replace the seat cushion cover this time.

I showed a fellow Jeeper (Craig) at the Jeep Fest on Saturday and he said his GC was doing the same thing.

Wondering how many other GC WK 2 owners are experiencing the same thing.

My WK is a MY2015 GC Overland with 15,000 K's and as ruined 2 sets of leather seat cushion covers so far

That would be me 😁.
Mine isn't an Overland, however my Limited is doing the same.

Cheers, Craig

Don't think the Limited has the Nappa leather, that was Overland and Summit. Anyway, wonder if it's something to do with the colour, what colour are Craig's? I've had the black leather for nearly 4 years / 130,000 and they still look new. Always parked under cover mind which could also be a factor. Not excuses, just thinking of differences.

My Limited has the luxury 2 pack, which includes black Nappa leather.
