Had my car for 5 months now and this seat keeps getting worse. I am 6ft'1" but only weight 155lbs. I would think the seat could handle my weight. Should I complain to the dealer to replace it or is this normal for a car with only 2000 miles?

6 foot 1 inch and only 155 pounds?
I congratulate you.
Half of America should be closer to that.

I was reading today that there was a 22% increase in Gonorrhea infections in Michigan. One of the symptoms is swollen testicles. From the look of the indentations, you might want to talk to your doctor. :shock:

I only have 130 miles on my GT500 but I can tell you my 2019 F250 Limited looks just like that. Previous Super Duties looked like that as well.

It is very normal in newer vehicles with somewhat poor quality leather.

I've seen new mustang GT premiums get this after 1000 miles or so. Must just be lacking quality.

One more reason out of many to option the recaros.

It feels much softer where the indentation is., like there is a defect in the foam underneath.

You very well may be right.
I have just noticed in the 2015-2020 Mustangs with leather interior it seems to do that/look like that after a while.

The center section of the seat is a perforated material for the heated - cooled seat. I don't know what it is made from, but it is not leather.

My car has 2400 miles and no indentation. Im 6' 200lbs. Do you carry a wallet in you back pocket by chance, that could be concentrating all the weight to one spot?

The dealer should be able address that and “tighten the leatherette up” ... just be careful because sometimes depending on your dealer size they will farm the work out to an upholstery shop and have too many people driving/gawking over your ride.
