Boy are you going to get all kinds of advice.....Apologies if already covered.
I like the matt finish in my 13 Azera Tech package leather seats and would like to treat the leather and keep it that way.
What are others using to accomplish this?
+1 on Griot's leather care. Love how the seats look. Love the mild aroma that lingers behind. Car STILL smells new after 17 months. Like the directions say, "use sparingly" with a THIN application. Several thin coats are much, MUCH better than a thick one. One bottle lasts "what seems like" forever!Another option is the Griot's Garage leather treatment.
I've used their leather treatment for years on the leather in my 928S, 535i, Azera, Tahoe. Works great.
This is a car guy's car care place. If nothing else, check out the tools and car care stuff.
Someone else posted on the Elantra sub-forum about the "blue" in his jeans transferring onto the leather. He used one of the above products...bought it at Wally World...Meguiar's, I believe. Anyway, he divided the driver's seat down the middle with a piece of tape and did a "side by side," Before/After comparison. Unbelievable. I wouldn't have guessed it in a million years. However, I don't recall him mentioning any fading. And it was the tan leather, as well.On one car I have light tan leather, a mistake. Seems that leather belts and jeans can transfer dye to the seats and, well, it does not come off. Had to have one seat re done by a detailer to get back to original, I actually rubbed the dye off of the seat trying to remove the stain. I use Lexol for the conditioning but with Tan, decided that a seat cover of some kind is the only way to keep the leather belts and jeans from re staining the seats. Lesson learned, go with a dark leather.
