Stearing wheel "leather" quality

Post by esox_hu » Fri Sep 14, 2018 2:48 pm

Has anyone of you experienced that the stearing wheel "fake leather" material has been peeling off after 1.5 years?
I mentioned it to my local Opel service and they said it's not leather, so their is no warranty for that.
I can't acccept this. A 1.5 years old car stearing wheel (after approx 30.000 Km ride) should not look like that.

For the record, I'm not using any extra hand cream or lotion and never happened anything like that with my previous car stearing wheels...

It should be covered under warranty. Most of the eco box cars dont use real leather on the steering wheel. Mine is in perfect condition, could be a bad a batch because its the first time I see this.

That looks like a different texture to my wheel.
