'11 GC Leather Defects
Any yet? I heard that some of the arm rests in the center consoles have leather creases and bubbles and the dash leather is lifting. Anyone seen this?

Apparently the cows they used weren't allowed near barbed wire. Funny but true fact!:)

Is the center armrest even leather? Thought that was vinyl for sure.

The dashes have been trouble for some owners, i havent heard of any issues with the leather on the seats though. My leather dash has some issues popping up already. i'm going to call the dealer soon and get it fixed, i hope.

The armrest on my limited is leather no problems with it so far. But yes there are pics posted in the Toubleshooting section that show the leather messed up on the dash on some overlands. No problems yet with seats, steering wheel, or leather door parts so far.

I heard they had to kill a ton of Naugha's to trim the rest of the non-leather interior surfaces. They're now nearly extinct.

So far I haven't noticed any defects with the leather, in particular the dash cover. I can imagine extreme heat being a concern and so here in Canada we might fair better but only time will tell.

I noticed a few lines or long bubbles on a dash at the dealership when we were inspecting interiors a few days ago. Hard to tell just exactly what it was, it's possible it wasn't anything wrong.
