some friend of mine, that he heard it from the Lexus IS people, saying that we have pleather :squint:
It's possible. I hardly think any car is real leather these days with all the cut in costs and all. Worth searching and looking into though.

IMO... We got better looking interior and seat quality material than lexus.. Lexus dries out quick and cracks.

Not sure about the new IS thoughn I havent really seen it.

A bit of advice for those that use leather cleaner. Some leather cleaner comes with UV protectant while some don't. I use Lexol Leather Cleaner and it DOES NOT protect against UV rays. I always follow up with 303 Aerospace to add that UV protectant to the leather seats if the cleaner doesn't have UV protectant.

Did a bit more searching around and this is what I've gathered.

Honda/Acura uses both pleather and leather. The leather being used is actually coated. So using products that are creamed base or was intended to be used on bare/uncoated leather isn't recommended. These products were made to be absorbed into the leather to work. Since our leather is coated, the leather wont absorb the product.

Any spray or wipe on product that adds protection to the surface works just fine.

^Yup. That's why I don't use leather conditioner because the leather doesn't even absorb the conditioner due to the coating.

I don't mind that it's pleather. Quite honestly, our pleather is alot less work to maintain then some of the other leather interiors out there. My dad's lexus is so soft. It's nice to sit in but its a pain to keep nice and I can see it tearing really easily.
