Any one else have leather issues? My front drivers seat is cracking and showing wear at only 4k miles. Dealer is swapping it out (the leather cover). Just wondering if this is going to be of things to come.
I am in the same boat. Dealer had no issue swapping it out? Do they just swap the affected seat? I would not want to have to swap it out more then once so if anything I would wait until I can't take it anymore. It's not that bad but I can see it may eventually be bad.
That is what I was told..just the cover.also found out it is common from swinging your but around to get out. Got the rock rails installed and put some grip tape. Now it's a step, so hopefully not so much wear.
Mine was replaced at 15,000 miles under warranty. i would recommend having your dealer have an interior tech do the install as mine is back in the shop having it done "right". same issue on passenger seatback. replaced but looks terrible.

Reading the numerous reports of this happening with the Saddle interior (which I think looks great) is the principal reason I opted for black leather. I haven't heard of any instances of this occurring with the black interiors, but maybe I've missed those reports.
A few people have claimed that it's due to people entering and exiting the vehicle improperly, but I just don't buy that. I've owned numerous vehicles with leather interiors and have never seen this type of premature wear. Clearly, it's a problem with how the Saddle leather, at least in some GCs, was improperly tanned and dyed.
