I have a 2008 Escape Limited. I have had this car for less then a year. My seats are starting to split and peel. I took it back to the dealer and of course they told me that I must of dragged something over the seat. I explained to them that the only thing to have been dragged over the seat was my pant covered butt and leg. These are so called leather seats!! I have 10 year old leather furniture that has never experienced this problem. I starting to think that they put Bi-Cast leather on these seats. It is a cheap imitation to real leather. They advertised these seats as premium leather!! What a crock!! I will never trust Ford again and I will probably have to pay to have these seat covers replaced. Go figure, less then 8000 miles and the premium leather is peeling. I should also state that I am a 53 year old woman with no children or animals in this car. I can't imagine what these seats would look like with a families normal use!!!
