Normal seat wear?

6k miles on my 14 overland and I'm really noticing the wear on my drivers side seat bolster. I know they take the most abuse but is this wear more than you would expect? Thanks

Yeah i have the Overland too with nappa leather seats and its doing the same. The bolster closest to the door because your're always sliding on it. I try to put some leather conditioner on it now and then to help prevent some of the wrinkles but its a natural condition.

Mines the same. Normal for this leather. I wouldn't worry about it.

Re: Normal seat wear?

Do you have the seat set up for easy exit? In the settings you can set it to slide back and the steering wheel to move up and forward, making more room to exit the vehicle. I found this helps keep the wear to a minimum on the seat.

I wish someone would make seats with replaceable leather covers in that area on the outer bolster of the drivers door. Phones, etc. and the belt plus just getting in and out always seems to hit that area the worst.

Swivel seats.

A friend of mine had them in a '74 Chevy Laguna. She was short and heavy. She said it was the only car she could ever get in and out of easily.
