I would think that would be normal wear & tear. Especially it being on the drivers seat.

A friend of mine has the same wear on his drivers seat. Driver induced. He always wears a buck knife and a big set of keys on his left side.

When you're getting in and out that will be a rough area. I don't have very heavy wear like that on mine. I only have 109,2xx miles. just some cracks in the leather, that'* it.

I think we decided in the past that the passenger'* seat uses the same parts, so you can get good replacements from a junkyard donor.
