The heated seat element overheated, causing the dye from my 10 year old sons jacket to be drawn into the suede. Jeep claims that it wasnt from this issue. Dealership said it looks like juice was spilled on it. My son could have been injured and now my seat has been damaged. I was basically called a liar.
