A defect after only a short time? I would be extremely upset too! And, I would be insisting on a replacement cover. I like the Autograph because of the massaging / AC front seats, did this give a factor in the seat stretching? I've been waiting (6 months) to get a vehicle of my choice from ca dealer, 2023 QX60, Autograph, AWD, loaded but they seem to be almost impossible to get here in Alabama. And, I've been studying posts about the 2023 QX60 because of the problems with this vehicle straight off the assembly line.
