Scott's right that's an easy fix you just need to have that one panel replaced. My buddy owns a trim shop he would charge about 50.00 for that fix anything more than that your getting ripped off. Call around you'll be surprised on how cheap of a fix that is.
I would go raise hell at the dealer some more tho' before I even spend a single cent.

Smile Re: Any Way To Fix Cracked Leather Seat

My old 99 WJ did this on side of the driver seat, it was owned by a petite woman before me and the darn thing still was cracked on the side, whereas the rest of the leather interior was mint, for that reason my new ride has cloth interior+seat covers, so no leather care to worry about.

Re: Any Way To Fix Cracked Leather Seat

The side bolsters are actually vinyl, not leather, so it will be a very easy fix. I have had it done on my jeep and It cost me $65.

That's exactly right the sides are vinyl and 65 is a far price since prices vary from town to town.

Re: Any Way To Fix Cracked Leather Seat

You could always file a complaint with the BBB.

Re: Any Way To Fix Cracked Leather Seat

Just got mine back from dealer and noticed the same cracks in the same spot. I just feel its probably from wear and tear on mine since its an 05.

It's actually most likely a wear issue. The dealer will know this, primarily because they will have seen it a thousand times because it is so common. I doubt it was actually the dealer that was the real cause of the tear. If you are convinced it was though, a complaint to the BBB wont really get anything done. Going to the service manager first, then threatening to write a complaint to Chrysler national (which threatens their 5 star status) will be more effective. If the threat alone doesn't convince them, actually submit a complaint and then copy them on the letter. That will get their attention.
