plastic seat cover cracked plastic seat cover cracked plastic seat cover cracked


I have enjoyed my Malibu but I have had an issue from the day I purchased it. The plastic cover over the seat controls was torn when I purchased the car the cover has gotten worse as time has gone by and to be honest has become a hazard. I have torn a pair of slacks on the extremely sharp plastic piece and I am very careful getting in and out of the car because of the piece. Drivers side seat control cover piece.

There is a defect in the seat design there is a metal tube running front to back, you can see it in the pictures, it cracked the cover and will crack any new cover that replaces this cover. This is a design defect, please find out if it is covered from Chevy. There are multiple complaints listed on the internet for this exact piece cracking!

Please advise-
