A couple weeks ago, I discovered the upholstery was peeling on my driver’s seat.

Needless to say, this is unacceptable on a 2016 car with 4,300 miles.

However, the dealer called me today and verified Mazda did approve the warranty fix and a new cover has been ordered for the seat. Thank goodness, because I REALLY didn’t feel like arguing with them about it.

However, the cover itself is on back order and is actually still in the process of being made by the manufacturer. This is apparently a very random one-off problem (I couldn’t find any mention of it anywhere online and the dealer had never heard of it, either). So, they haven’t exactly scrambled to make spare seat covers. However, once the cover comes in, the dealer will call me for a repair and all will be right with the universe again.
