    We all know that the new seats look much better than previous generations, but how have they been wearing for everyone? Any photos from those with some miles on their Gen V's? Just curious, thanks!

    Total miles traveled have had less impact than getting in and out. The bolsters on our cars have shown the most wear.

    1145 miles, mainly short trips so in and out of the car a lot. No wear yet.

    Any input on the wear fo the Laguna leather? I have heard that it can be damaged getting in and out with normal use.

    1500mi. Laguna (Sepia).

    I wear jeans and they look as-new.

    As to the seat base/center area being "stretched out"; every one I've seen is a little loose in the bottom area. (no loose bottom jokes. Seriously). Mine have at least stayed the same since new.

    2800 so far and no wear. If I get to keep it I'm gonna rack up the miles this summer. Then we'll see :)

    455 miles, srt with leather seat option. been in/out 25 times looks perfect. in 45 miles it will be time to go through the gears at 6k+ rpm. hopefully i won't stain the seat(thinking about putting a towel down)..

    The ballistic nylon in the TA is porous and provides more of a stealth mode for hydrogen sulfide emissiions. No wear so far after 2000 plus miles.

    So true man. I have less than 200 miles on it and it looks like it's owned by an elephant. Oh and take it easy with the fat jokes. JD

    The ta seats will look new after a 100k miles due to the type of fabric used

    I agree, very disappointed with my LE Edition seat bottom (Laguna leather) looks stretched out, was like that when new, Im guessing it will eventually crease, and look much worse.

    Pretty lame for a 7.5k upgrade, Dodge should really address this issue and fix it. Love the seat style and fit tho.
