5000 miles and my list has one item. To fix bowed lift gate handle.

My "leather" looks like new. No wrinkles, nada.

Re: leather seats

My seat has some wrinkles, but then, so do I.

Side bolsters are not leather, but what Jeep calls protein-vinyl.

My 2011 Overland had the lumbar squeaks too until about 18000 miles and then it just resolved on its own. Guess the seat just needed some extended breaking in. Really annoyed me too for a bit but didn't want the dealers hands to mess it up even more.

The Limited and Overland aren't the same material are they? Or the Limited that doesn't have leather but no perforated seats, it looks different and I wouldn't imagine it to be the same material.

Re: leather seats

My 2011 overland has 100% leather seats including bolsters.
Headrests are vinyl.
Enjoy

Re: leather seats

I have concerns about my seats also. Appears like they are going to eventually crack. I had the dealer take a look at them and they told me not to worry right now, just keep an eye on them and if they get real bad they are covered under factory warranty.
