leather sucks anywhere where the temps vary a lot. in texas, for instance, you can get 105s, 110s easily in the summer. you stick to the leather and it's gross. in a good winter down there, you can get a couple days of 15s and 20s. then the leather is brittle and feels like you're sitting on a box, at least until the heater warms up the interior.
under the right conditions, yes, leather is very nice, but i personally wouldn't want to own a car with a leather interior.
