In the 80s I remember sticking to my mom's Buick seats and how hot they'd get. I am fine to have cloth.That's the problem with any automotive leather seats. They are so highly processed with synthetic coatings to make them durable, you pretty much end up with vinyl like seats.
I can't find the details, but the term "leather seating surfaces" and other variations exist because Nissan was sued by a 300ZX owner who discovered that his "leather seats" were not 100% leather.You have to be careful how manufacturers advertise leather seats. A lot of times, they are "leather seating surfaces" (i.e. where you really sit and rub against the material is leather, but the seatbacks and other parts may be vinyl).
Do you mean just reupholstering in leather or swapping out entire seats? I'm sure you can just swap the seats. I'm not sure about keeping your seats and then reupholstering them without breaking the bank.I chose what was on the model I test drove which was cloth, knowing in the long run Id upgrade to leather trim and seats...anyone know if this conversion is possible or how much leather components would be bought from the dealer rather than off the lot with it pre-installed? I hope that is possible...lol I was a BMW guy so leather is one of the high-points for me...I really enjoy the cloth though, it looks sharp and the seats are very comfortable, after weeks they still feel crisp, any cons on leather interior?
