2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Seat Wear

January 30, 2013

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

We've put nearly 19,000 miles on the SRT8 and the outside driver thigh bolster is starting to show it. Granted, we've had bodies of all shapes and sizes sliding in and out of this seat for 19,000 miles. That's a lot of denim, twill, rough cotton, linen, hemp, silk, satin and bare skin (nothing wrong with driving naked now and then) passing over that patch of leather. Clearly the bolster needs some conditioning. My question is: should it need it by now?
