    When you press it it sounds crunchy I guess is the best way to describe it. I don't know if I should contact SRT or my dealer about it. It is happening to both the front seats though.

    First time I've heard leather described as "crunchy"

    Doesn't sound like a good thing.

    Just contact your dealer first so they can take detailed pictures and send it to SRY to cover under warranty. There has been a foam issue in some of the car.

    Yea I might do that, I think its the foam as I have seen videos on Youtube from other owners that had a similar issue.

    Its more the foam under the leather, not the leather its self.

    Mine does this too. The wrinkles disappear after a couple of seconds.

    I never noticed the sound until you pointed it out. I checked mine after your post and sure enough mine does it too.

    I've never heard any crunching sounds, but give it time and you'll experience what all of us are... loose leather that stretches out on the seat bottom and is forever loose. After 6 months or so (if its not a garage queen) your seat bottoms will look like an old man's balls.

    Have your dealership take pictures and submit them to digital imaging per warranty procedure to get them covered.

    I've had several vehicles with leather seats from different auto makers and this is the first problem I've ever had. This problem is just weird.
