How are your leather seats holding up....?

My 08 has 58K miles on it, and the driverside lower seat cushion seems to be breaking down a bit, as well as the leather is worn tremendously. Has anyone else having issues with this? It could borderline be replaced.

I got 83,000 miles on my KR. I think my cushion got a little bit softer on the sides but not by mush. As for the leather I know it is different than yours but I clean and condition it every time I wash the truch. Thats about once or twice a month for me during the most of the year.

my 08 now has about 90k on it and the leather still looks great. I do a leather treatment atleast once a month and my windows are tinted to 5% which to some extent protects the leather from the sun. And I made my wife stop climbing over the seats.

If you have the black "leather" like I do in my FX4, I don't think it is really leather, but pleather. Mine is doing the exact same thing that yours is, and has actually started to peel in a spot about an 1/8" square. I have 68k on the truck.

The covers do come of...but i think you need a special tool or instrument to get if off as there is a rod and some do hickeys just below the headrest that keeps the cover tight and conforming to the seat. I found this out when i was installing my tv's in the rear seat...Now, i never tried very hard to figure out how to get the cover off completely because i figured once i got it off i likely wouldnt be able to figure out how to get the rod and tensioning do hickeys back into place.

I have 105,000km's on mine and the drivers cover was replaced once under warranty and i have several other locations now starting to show wear and a few holes...i suspect from keys and crap in a persons pocket.

But its only the drivers seat showing wear...the rest are in great shape.

44K w/stone leather. There's definetly wear on the driver's seat from getting in and out. Overall though, they're holding up pretty well. I use lexol cleaner and then conditioner every few months. That makes a huge difference.

Has anyone had any luck getting their drivers seats replaced under warranty. I've got 19,500 miles on my 08 FX4 and the leather has a small rip in one of the creases along the edge.
