My wife picked up her 20 plate Evoque today. Do these seats look bodged to you? It’s both front seats and a stain on the drivers seat.

I wouldn't be accepting that. Straight back to the dealer for new seats.

Thanks for that, I wasn’t there otherwise I’d have refused to drive the car away without new seats being ordered there and then. I really wanted to confirm it wasn’t in my head and this wasn’t now normal for JLR. My wife had to go on her own she’s isolating from the rest of us as she’s an NHS medic. The garage told her the dark marks would rub out and the folds would stretch out with use in a few weeks. I was incandescent (with them not her obviously) when she told me after her shift. I’ll be writing to the garages sales director this morning. Thanks for your help!

That is awful, once again terrible by JLR, probably totally spoiled a special day picking up a new ”premium” car. 🤬

Doogi she’s quite sanguine about it, doesn’t have enough space or emotion left with everything going on at work for it to even register.

That pucker will never 'stretch out' - it has clearly been stitched badly during manufacture and should have been picked up way before installation - and how did it miss the PDI check?

Yep, definitely a bad seat.
No way is that acceptable and mine also a MY20 is fine with no puckering.
Feel free to use my picture just in case they try the "they are all like that to start with" BS.

So, passenger side does have a slight kink in the leather, but nothing to get upset about. Drivers side is fine 👍

Offft ... no way, that’s shocking ... I’d actually take photos and send to JLR complaints before going back to dealership... they do have quality control and a pre inspection to pick up... not good enough
