I’m interested by it but am worried that because I wear jeans everyday it’ll stain. My last car had tan seats and those stained within a month. Does anybody that has had the red seats long terms have pictures or thoughts?

17,7XX miles, and I can't see any issues. I'm 6'2" ~190 so I'm putting a decent amount of force on the seats. I usually wear Duluth "firehose" pants.

doesn't stain but the leather or underneath foam isn't holding up well causing a lot of sag.

Ford doesn’t have the greatest durability when it comes to seats. Use cleaner once a week, it’ll cut back and help. Once the seats get worn take it to an upholstery shop that will give you a quality job.

Mine shows signs of dye transfer in certain areas on the lower left side where back meets the bottom after approx 14,000 miles. I clean regular with Griot's 3in1 leather.

I have seen this happen.
It's a common issue however Ford doesn't want to fix it under warranty saying it's normal wear and tear. I mentioned it at the first oil change but no luck. It's getting worse with time

I guess I'm just lucky! I have the Ceramic leather seats and after 18,000 miles no staining, no sagging, no wrinkles, no wear visible. Maybe cause I'm so tiny -- 260lbs, 6"
