Second row seat excessive wear
This is the second row seat behind the driver's seat, outboard side. This seat gets stowed more than the other side. That said, I've stowed it about 5 times max. There is no way this was caused by misuse and my van is only a year old. The seat is primarily used by my 12 year old sitting on a cover used typically for car seats. Currently I have a car seat installed using the LATCH as you can see... It doesn't got this area at all.
My only guess is that this is occurring when the seat is stowed as there is nothing here to rub the cloth raw like that. There is however hard plastic partially behind this which is most likely helping the area get worn. Still, for a year old van the cloth should hold up a heck of a lot better than this.
Next question is, since it's probably a defect in manufacturing, can I get this repaired or replaced under warranty?
