View Full Version : What is this rip in the carpet of my new 2010 Forester?

I just discovered this 6" cut in the carpet of my brand new 2010 Forester (only one week old!) It looks like a seatbelt cut gone crazy, and I never would have accepted the car for delivery if I had noticed this. The car was left at the dealer for 3 days after purchase (because my hubby was out of state and could not pick it up) so there was opportunity for someone to mess with it at the dealer after purchase.

Here is a picture. I added a picture of the other side of the car without the cut, for comparison purposes.

Since the car is brand new, take it straight back to the dealer. They might actually do something about it since it's only a week old........but on the other hand, they might turn on you because you accepted delivery. I hope they take care of for you though.

I can't think of anything that would go there, or why that slice would be there?
