Interior seat wear

Sun Jul 01, 2018 7:16 am

The fabric seats in my 2013 focus electric seem to wear faster. In fact i already have one hole in the drivers seat. As any one else noticed faster fabric wear? Does the focus electric still use recycled soda bottles for the front seats?

No wear-through on my 2017 (wouldn't expect it), but I was curious about that.

...aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnddddddddddd this is why I had to get leather seats...they last longer.

You might want to look into a set of seat covers. I have the cheap Dickies brand seatcovers from Walmart. Heavy duty canvas material and they seem to take abuse...

If you do, make 100% sure they don't interfere with the side airbags.
