Anyone had their rear seats split?

I walked out the other day and looked in the back window as I was opening the trunk and saw that my rear seat seams had split at the top! They are the inboard seams, right below the speakers. Anyone else had this happen?

My back seats are brand new since they're never really sat in but I'll be sure to double check for any splitting tomorrow though now.

My back seats will be used but only under careful supervision- With 12000+ miles on the GTO, the interior still looks and smells new.
I heard from another GTO owner that his rear seats did split at the seam. He told me to keep an eye for that-he was the original owner and never used the back seats. Sounds like a manufacturing flaw.

Saw this problem often when I worked for Pontiac, mostly on 04's. Dealer will replace the leather under warranty. Tinting your rear window and using leather conditioner will help prevent this shrinking from happening.

I checked mine, everything looks good. I did however use Meguiars leather seat conditioner wipes and my windows are tinted limo. I even have to child seats in the back and no problems. I did find however clear plastic from shipment around the area mentioned above. I removed it. Heat and intense sun probally has alot to do with it. I keep her in the garage.

I use Meguiars one step leather care

and no one has ever been in the back seat either. My windows aren't tinted (yet) but that may have to change next pay check. My girl's non-running, not worth fixing POS is in the garage right now but it's going to the recyclers next week and when I get my baby back, it's in the garage for her.
