2011 King Ranch Leather Scratches......

So I pick my truck up new from the dealer, The next day I notice on the driver seat there are 4 or 5 deep scratches on the leather. You would only notice it standing outside peering in around the drivers side bolster. The dealer is still trying to decide if they are going to replace the seat cover
Has anyone been able to take these scratches out without replacing the seat cover? It looks like someone got in the trick with a wrench or something in their back pocket & scratched the finish right off. These new seats seem to have some sort of shiny finish on the seat unlike my 06 which would scratch but come out with conditioner....
Any help would be appreciated, I am just sick over it.

I'd be making them replace it! If you have a good dealer it shouldn't be a big fight at all.

I would go back in and say that this is unacceptable. I would push real hard. It's not like it's been 6 months later. It's the next day.

I had some "minor" scratches in mine as well and did this guys method at the below link; and worked great!


The conditioner and leather dye can be purchased at the below store. It's good to have on hand, and you will need the conditioner anyway to maintain your seats.

You will only need the small bottle of dye 8oz, and then purchase the large bottle of leather protectant/conditioner to mix some of the dye into.

Aniline Leather Color - Ford King Ranch

Hope this helps.

Man I hope it all works out for you. I agree it makes me sick. I really like those seats too. Seats alone made me wish I could have spung the extra few grand for it. The leather in the Lariat feels kind of cheap and thin. Makes me worry. I had an an '03 Eddie Bauer and thoes seats felt much better quality and thicker leather than the Lariats of the same years. The EBs I saw all seemed to hold up better on the high wear points like the edge of the drivers seats. I worry about mine long term. Just need some extra babying! Enjoy the truck!

Those seats do scratch easy I know that. I would still see what they would do.

Thanks for all the input guys. I called this morning and they are sending a new seat cover. Now.... How hard is that going to be for me to switch the covers with the airbags in the seats now? I am about 2500miles from the dealer where it was bought.
