    Leather is great,
    but alot of cars have cheap and uncomfortable leather. The companies also supplement leather with vynal on the side of the seat.
    Luck is probability taken personally!

    Leather just gets trashed no matter what you do with it. It streches out, gets creases or cracks. Fabric just lasts forever if it is good quality. In my experience, leather dies first, then seat foam, then fabric. Plus fabric is more comfy in temperature extremes.

    I voted Leather.......we was debating the samethning here when we were going to buy our 08 Accord. We did end up with leather and we love it, easy to clean and it cuts down on our allergies inside the car!!!

    In most cases I would vote leather, but for a work truck I would certainly go for fabric. It's going to see wear and fabric wears better. As well, trucks tend to get poor quality leather in comparison to high end luxury cars and fabric is a much better value by far when you take that into account.

    You do have to watch for claw marks though.

    Re: Leather Or Fabric?

    I say leather.
    It looks nicer and smells better.
    The down sides the price and when it gets to hot.
    We are the type of people who like our cars to look good.
    For some of us we clean our cars every weekend.
    So it should not be a problem to clean or keep it looking brand new.
