For those of you who have had replacements, how are they holding up?
I really like the look of the Saddle interior so I'm hoping this has been corrected by Chrysler.
I have said it before and I will say it again, its all in how you get in and out of your car. Peoples weight has a lot to do with it as well but we wont go there lol. Sure, maybe saddle wears sooner than other colors or brands, but if you get in and out of your car somewhat gently it wont be an issue. I always cringe when I see someone get into a car with nice leather and they drag there asses and jeans across the bolsters then plop down onto the seat. I guess im more anal about things than some people, but for me the saddle wear is not an issue. I know I dont have many miles on my 2012 Overland, but with 3,030 miles the interior looks and smells like the day it had 1 mile on it.
I wouldnt let this be a deciding factor on whether you get saddle or not. I say go for it.
