Leather seat cracking already - 4 mo old!!

Four months old and 2600 miles and the leather is cracking on the driver's seat. Sure it will be covered under wty but WTF?

That sucks but did you do anything to prevent it.. Leather either cracks, fades or hardens with age, put something on it to stop it. Try Leather Therapy. Don't use the cheap brands you get from the auto parts store.

Use a leather cleaner always...not cheap stuff either. Did you miss the fact the truck is 4 months old with 2600 miles? It should not have worn like that....must be a defect I hope versus quality.

Blue jeans (starched even worse) are a killer..Need to soften that leather up with some conditioner.

Cleaner is one thing but you need to get some conditioner on there after you clean it.

You don't see the cracking where he would slide out?

Yea I don't see any cracking either. Maybe normal leather features with use. And if they are there either the camera didn't pick them up or they are just really small
