That's weird man. I'm guessing your seat airbag went off when you got hit?
No the airbag didn't deploy. The issue is my insurance company refuses to replace the seat with a new one. They paid for a used seat from a car in the junk yard, I got a junk yard seat in place of a near new seat. The junk yard seat feels older, has a lot of wear on it and creaks/groans when sitting in it. It just feel different and when reclining it.. it has no where near the same tension as my original seat.That's weird man. I'm guessing your seat airbag went off when you got hit?
Thanks I'll do my best but I honestly expect them to wriggle out of it. It's annoying considering I'm paying them every month thinking I'm covered. This is with State Farm and once I'm done with this and get all my deductibles back from the at fault party I'm changing to another company.Call and complain to the insurance company. Keep demanding to go up the chain until you are satisfied. They are charging you full price every month for replacement parts. Ridiculous.
BTW, what insurance is this? I'll be sure to stay away from it.
Thanks for asking. I understand what you're saying. They've given me the "replacement part in like condition" speech that could be used, reconditioned or new. Essentially which ever part is cheapest. I honestly don't expect them to just give me a new seat without some effort on my part which is why I'd like to identify the old seat which will be an uphill battle. But I'm willing to try I've nothing to lose and a new seat to gain lolFirst of all I hope you are ok health wise after your car incident. I hate to be the dark cloud in all this but, take a close look at your insurance policy. Insurance co. have a way to sneak in there that if there is ever the need to replace a part, this part can be replaced with an "as new" or "reconditioned" part. I am telling you this because this has happened to a lot of my friends and the company is totally in the right to replace your broken part with one or several of these "as new" parts".
I'll give that a go when I ask for a quote on a new seat, thanks. I hadn't asked the dealer just yet because the body shop knows exactly where that seat came from. In fact the VIN to the car it was pulled from is on the invoice from the junk yard! I just don't understand what they are hiding I can only assume since I was told the seat came from a 2009 that in fact it didn't.. maybe it was a 2006 or 2007 seat. That would account for the amount of wear on it but would also expose a lie.Call the dealer, and ask them if there is a number on the seats, and where it's located. that should help you out.
Thanks for letting me know. I've never been in a 1.6 before so I wasn't sure if they had different materials, plastics or less padding etc. I did originally want a 1.6 but they couldn't seem to find a black one with ABS and a 5 speed gearbox. If I wanted A/C I was forced to take an automatic if I remember right.my 1.6 seat looks and feels exactly like the non sl seats. I was in a couple of Versa's at the dealership and I didn't notice any difference at all. My seat has 64k miles on it and doesn't appear worn or flat in anyway.
