We have a 2004 Limited and after 6 years of use no leather seat splits, cracks and/or peeling. I would say if you do indeed have only 8000 miles it is time to visit another dealer that is willing to help you cover it under warranty. Good Luck!

You are lucky to have a 2004. You have real leather. I believe my 2008 seats are made out of a product called Bi-Leather. It is equivalent to particle board. If I could figure out how to post a picture to this site I would. ">

YEA!! I took my Escape to another Ford Dealer and they took one look at the problem and told me it should be covered under the warranty. The service rep. made a call and came back and told me they had ordered a new cover for my seat!!!! It should be here in a couple of days!! My faith is restored that there are decent people out there that believe in the customer

I have a 2008 Escape Limited and am experiencing the
same problem with my Leather Seats----a few spots on the front passenger and driver seats---- I have tried using a leather glue--and conditioner which I use on my home furniture---I also have a problem with my reav view mirror changing tint colors on its own----don't know what this is
about but its very annoying during the day light hours and your mirror is very dark--can't really see out of it---Checked owners manual and there is no mention of this---any suggestions would be helpful--

You have a electrochromatic rear view mirror which changes color of tint to provide the best view without the glare...completely normal operation.
