2011 Hyundai Equus: Driver Seat vs. Backseat
September 02, 2011
Schmidt already alerted you to the premature driver-seat wear in our long-term 2011 Hyundai Equus. Not only is the light-colored leather discolored, it's loosening up. When I took the Equus to San Diego a couple weeks back, I noticed that the wear is especially obvious compared to the backseat, which still looks like new.
We had the same thing happen in our long-term 2007 Azera, but that car cost half as much. I understand the importance of cleaning and conditioning leather in a car you're going to keep for 10 years, but imagine if you'd leased an Equus and had to deal with this... hello, excessive wear and tear charges. Might not be a bad idea to give some thought to switching seat suppliers.
