Leather Seat Has A Small Rip In It Already?

I don't mean to be nit picky or anything, but I have had my truck a short while, put only 1200 miles on it, and yesterday I noticed I have a small nail head sized rip on the lumbar support near my lower back. Also it seams the leather has a permanant dye rub off from a black belt I was wearing. Does this sound like something ford would warranty, or will they tell me to go scratch? I just don't think leather in a truck, especially a truck with that kind of price tag should scratch rip, or take on dye from a clothing item that easily. What would you guys do???:shrug:

2004.5 Dodge 2500 Quad Cab Cummins Powered, Laramie, Tow Pkg., Snow Plow Pkg., 4.10 Rears.

2008 Ford F-250 Crew Cab Lariat, 6.4 Powerstroke, Snowplow Prep, Automatic 3.73 posi, 18 inch wheels, SOLD!!!!

Go talk to your dealer. What's the worst they can tell you? Be respectful and say something about the fact that you've only got 1200 miles on it, and there's no reason that leather should tear that fast. Also, there's no reason that it should take the dye from your belt that easily, unless you got wayyyy carried away when you put it on the belt.

Good luck, I hope you're good friends with your dealer and let us know how it turns out.

A leather seat should have a little more durablity than that, I have heard of people with the king ranch package having one seat fade really fast from sunlight and the dealership ordered them a new cover so go play nice with dealership and hopefully they will do the right thing. on the dye rub take some saddle soap to it. hope all works out for you
