I just took delivery of a 2009 Subaru Tribeca with leather seating, how should I care for the leather?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Jennifer  Justice- Haley, Body Shop Owner/Operator at Co-Owner of Elite Collision Service, Inc Assuming it*s smooth leather, look for a name brand like Meguire*s to have a two-step kit that includes a leather cleaner along with a finishing conditioner that has UV protectant to try to minimize future sun damage. Additionally,suede is a popular option (not all makes)for the part of the seat that your body touches (my new favorite!!). If it*s suede you want to be certain to use a cleaner that*s specified for suede only! Keep a suede brush on hand for everyday debris removal. Enjoy your new car!

Wendy Engelberg, Director of Operations and Founder at Autovisuals Many products out there for leather. Good ole fashioned saddle soap is the best I believe. You can purchase this at a tack store for horses or online. Lexol always leaves leather too slippery.
