2012 Nissan Quest: Driver Seat Showing Wear, But Likely Normal

 2012 Nissan Quest: Driver Seat Showing Wear, But Likely Normal

I happened to notice that the outside driver seat cushion bolster is showing some wear creases after nearly 15,000 miles. The problem is that due to the seat's elevated height (relative to say, a sedan's), everytime you get in or out you're squishing that bolster with your butt. And since it's leather upholstery, it starts to hold creases.

I suspect this is pretty common for a vehicle like a minivan, though. I was able to dig up a photo of our long-term Odyssey's seat (pictured right) and it looked pretty similar. But it does make me wonder what the Nissan's seat will look like after a few more years of hard use.
