Re: P.O.S. Larado X "leather" seats !

I bought my 07' recently with similar damage. Find a local auto upholstery shop to replace that section of the seat. They should be able to do it for a couple hundred. Not cheap, but worth it to me.

Re: P.O.S. Larado X "leather" seats !

cleaning them will keep them looking nice, but conditioner will not help at all since they are vinyl.

Yep! Mine looks the same way! Does anyone know of a quick fix short of totally replacing the seat cover?

Might be cheaper to find a new set in a junk yard?

Re: P.O.S. Larado X "leather" seats !

My 08 Overland has one large crack on the drivers seat, same place as yours (next to the edge) and I hate it since I see it all the time. With 66K miles I guess it was inevitable. Thinking of trying to fix it myself before I pay big bucks to have it repaired...we'll see.
