Ok, I thought I was just gonna get the cloth seats but instead I'm getting the leather (don't ask, long story...) Anyways my question is for those of you who have leather in your Tibby's already... how is it? the quality, comfort and such? Thanks <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

I have the leather....the quailty is nice. They feel great...but just make sure you take care of it to make sure it wears well. I think you will like it better than the cloth.

I have to sya that I don't get along well with leather... I think that the cloth is just as good, it all depends on your style... <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Leather is sweet. Very comfortable, except on a super hot day where it feels sticky.

I get a billion compliments on my interior, all due to the leather seats. Good choice.

Mine is black with grey/silver inserts, kinda like a stripe.
Very nice. And the door panels are black leather.
Smells wonderful, too!

Awesome! I've always liked leather! Do everyone's leather seats look like the one at hyundiausa.com?

I also love the leather <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle> <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle> IMO it just gives the car a sportier look than the cloth. <img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>

My leather broke in after about 4-6 months. Now it soft in the driver's seat. The passenger side is pretty good good, but a little harder. The back seats are rock solid, cause no one ever sits back there.

Edit--> You can also soften it up quicker by using certain leather treatment oils on it.

I recommend the armorall leather seat wipes. You can get them at places like wal-mart, k-mart, etc...

I'm a fan of "lexol" leather cleaner and conditioner. It works better than any other leather conditioner I have ever used. If I can make the 2mm drum died leather in my motorcycle jacket glove soft...imagine what it can do for the seats in your car...

Leave it to Random to Needlessly complicate things.

Hyundai Leather

I saw the thread regarding comments on Leather seats. I have a 2006 Tib with Leather trim and I've had it replaced once under warranty already due to wear on the drivers side panel of the seat. This was only 6 months after purchase! Now, the same spot is worn again and it's only 1.5 years after purchase! Hyundai is now refusing to replace the seat for the second time. They say this is normal wear and tear. I strongly disagree! :mad: Anyone have comments on wether a leather seat trim should wear out twice in less than two years?? Thanks!
