Has anyone had issues like this?
the TSB (technical service bulliton) is a document put out by a dealer, that only used to be available to the dealers technitions, but thanks to the web is available to all. This document is what a car mfgr puts out instead of a recall.
The TSB you want can be found here (as well as others at the main link):
When I first told my dealer about this TSB, he told ME to clean it. That's when I pointed out that it was a MFG defect, and that under the heading DIAGNOSIS, it states that if a customer experiences this, "perform the following procedure", which is direction to the dealer to do this, not the customer. Needless to say, they cleaned ALL the seats, not just the ones with the stains.
I have not used any aftermarket deterrent, such as scotch guard, but I probably should.
Besides Scotch Guard, I was notified by the dealership that they do offer treatment of the interior. It's called Simoniz, and it works like Scotch Guard, but its' professional grade and is guaranteed for a lifetime. Obviously it's for an extra cost, but that also could be an option for you. Simonizing is also available for the exterior of the car as well.

its' professional grade
But what does that mean? A "professional" at the dealer applies it? The yard guy in other words? A pro would probably use Zaino
or similar. I think mop & glow stuff is just wax and Scotchgard. It's a huge profit center for the dealers and you better check the guarantee for "gotchas."
