My 2013's steering wheels split open on top this week. As you can see, there are cracks beyond the split, which will probably cause it to split more.

I have not used cleaning chemicals or anything of that sort. My best remedy at the moment is to leather wrap it.

That's not good. I'm sure it will continue. I'm also assuming you are out of the warranty period, if not I would definitely be visiting the dealer.

Your assumption is correct.

There are a lot of options on EBay....new, used, leather, covers, etc. I would buy a slightly used OEM and have a local independent garage complete the replacement due to the air bag. You could also buy a leather car specific cover and it have it laced professionally at a local car upholstery shop.

I wrapped my Honda steering wheel and it looks great. I'll do the same with the Hyundai. It seems that as of now I am the only one with this issue.

Or you can have it repaired. There are companies out there that can repair vinyl and you will never know it was split. Ask your dealer or local auto detailing shops about anyone doing this in your area.
