Just a Warning about Leather seats

If you have leather seats. Do not use Armor all of any kind to treat them. The side peices are not leather. They are cracking like crazy and people are really screwing their seats up.

Ex-wife works for the seating part of Johnson cotrols and is dealing with this now. (yes I still am seeing her) But, after seeing samples brought in from where dealers are trying to get them replaced , without cost to the customers, are being told to go pound sand. Customer abuse for miss treatment of material.

Just a warning I figure I better send out. I did ask what the hell can we use. She said only the Dodge treatment the dealers sell. I said it was bullshit. But, she didn't have a better answer. Sorry guys.

Heck, I use leather treatment on plastics (for the sunscreen and protective oils), let alone leather!

Can't see anyone using anything else on leather besides leather treatments.

Armour all! Might as well pour water and bacon fat on your interior.

Helpful info all the same though. I guess some people just don't know......

Cheers

BJ

Just be sure to follow the directions on their website, if you don't your results could be very different. It won't damage it or anything though...just an effectiveness scale.

I clean it with their cleaner first and then use their conditioner. It isn't cheap, but it works well.

There is only a small portion of our seats that are leather, which I actually don't mind because the vinyl seems to hold up better than the leather.

Ditto, clean then condition.... seats are pretty except for some cracking caused by previous owner neglect. I do the same for other leather things like shoes and jackets, it works great.

Plain Armor All sucks on leather..... I haven't tried their gel, but if it has a trace of silicone, avoid it like the plague!

I felt the same way when watching Pimp My Ride (for the laughs) and they would pimp Quaker State down our throats. It's like they're saying, "Well we put thousands of dollars worth of electronics in this car, and it still has the same crappy engine, but Quaker State will solve EVERYTHING!"
