Hi, I bought a 2010 Outlook XR Premium approx 10 months ago with 20k miles and now I have approx 32k miles. I've noticed that the seats leather is getting much more stretched and wrinkled...I'm not a fat man and neither is my wife :) and we barely have someone in the passenger seat. I took it to the dealer and they said its normal wear and tear but they would be willing to quote me a new seat cover.

I was very surprised by this as it is something that I didn't expect the seats to start doing. Does anyone else have any issues like this or know of a way to correct besides buy a new seat cover?

Thanks,

Steve

Mine have been doing that for a while, not tore but you can see the creases in the leather and some of the black dye is wore off in those spots, its just the outer part where you get in and out, we have running boards so that makes getting in that much more of a strech if your not using them.

Agree the leather in the Outlook was looking stretched and I notice it more so in the Enclave since we have the Titanium, grey, leather where as the Outlook was black.

The leather in these GM vehicles is jjust plain junk!!! Ford is even worse too. I'm going to swap mine out for Katzkin covers when they get bad enough.

I have owned a lot older vehicles with leather seats and they also ended up showing wear/wrinkles. It is just the nature that you sit enough or get in and out of a vehicle enough times there will be wear. My 03 Saturn VUE is the same only more so on the outer edge of the drivers seat showing wear from getting in and out.

It's normal wear. Ever noticed how your leather shoes get wrinkled? But I'll bet you clean and condition your shoes, and you probably don't condition your seats. Every time you get in and out you rub on the seats which over time dry's them out. I don't know where you live, but if it is a very dry climate that doesn't help either. Mine show a little wear but not more than I expected. Get a good conditioner (one that doesn't smell like alcohol, which is a drying agent and is in a lot of so called conditioners) and condition them every 6 weeks and you should see a decline in the amount of aging. Check with your local shoe repair shop for a good one.
