Yeah, the stock seat cloth is a bit easy to wear. This is why I got Wet Okole neoprene seat covers. If you are interested, do a search on Wet Okole and you can find some pictures I posted.

Another option is to get a leather kit installed. Lots of threads for this too.

I had my seat cover replaced under warranty for the same reason. Took about 10k miles and it was almost worn through in one spot, although it started showing wear after like 5k (I just ignored it for a while). 7k miles later and this one is fine.

Question Worn seats

The cloth drivers seat on my 2014 started to show signs of wear at 2K, the dealer said bring it in and they will order a new seat. I am not happy with that because this is going to be an ongoing problem until the change to a stronger fabric. Are there good seat covers that will fit correctly?

Lose some weight and lower into the seat instead of plopping into it like an elephant seal beaching itself. OP is drawing social security now.
