What has been problematic about the saddle leather? I have not heard anything about that. Tell me more. I know some models have the black dash and the saddle seats which is a nice way to break things up.

Overlands have the black leather dash, Summits have the saddle dash.

There's a few reports of saddle seats wearing extremely quickly. Not sure if it was a small group of bad seats, something that was a 1st year issue, or what. But there were a decent number of people who reported having theirs replaced under warranty. I don't think any of them had issues again though.

Something I'd look more into if you're interested in the saddle leather. It sure does look nice though. I've always been more of a black leather kinda guy though.

Re: Summit - too much chrome?

Not sure why but look at history of yank vehicles and over the many years the main thing is far too much chrome. Much too much chrome

I believe the "stupid parking brake" was part of Mercedes design influence back when they were partnered with Chrysler (DaimlerChrysler AG) from back in 2007, when the two were designing the next Grand Cherokee.
