You seem to be suggesting that Chevy dealerships might do this; at least, I can't figure out any other way for the labor to be paid for under "warranty work". Is there any precedent for this? I'd love to think that this might be possible, but based on my admittedly limited knowledge of the auto industry, I seriously doubt that any legacy auto maker would authorize such a thing. To qualify under "warranty work", Chevy/GM would have to admit there was a fault in the seats, wouldn't they? I don't see that happening. If they did admit that, then they would have to replace them under warranty at zero cost to the buyer. Is there any precedent for a "meeting the customer halfway" measure of selling them a new part for the car at cost and doing a replacement without any labor fee for the customer? I know there have been individual cases where the auto maker will waive a fee as a "good will" gesture, but I've never heard of such a thing offered to every buyer of a car from a major auto maker such as Chevrolet. I can easily believe a smaller auto maker, perhaps Rolls-Royce or Ferrari or Tesla might do that, to maintain their very high reputation; but I can't see Chevrolet doing such a thing. However, I'd love to be proven wrong!
