Leather Seat Repair?

I recently purchaed a 2010 5.7L HEMI w/ all of the bells and whistles; however, the front leather seats are pretty warn for only 2010.

Does anyone know the cost and if it is even worth the result to get leather seats repaired? to look new?

Thanks in advance for any direction

They might not be leather if it's the bolsters that have worn. My commander was the same and I had the bolsters on the drivers seat repaired and then had it colour code leather painted. It's been done a year now and still looks mint.

The ware lines are all right at the edge of the seat where your legs hang. I thought the whole seat is leather?

How much did it cost for the repair

I believe the front of the seat is all leather but the rear of the seat is synthetic.

The base bolsters on the front seats are synthetic but the centre piece is leather. The back rest of the seat is all leather. Cost me 100 for the base repair To change to leather, but we could not find the exact same colour leather so it then cost me 60 to get the base painted, but I also had my tv headrests painted at the same time as they were originally black.

If you can afford to have it repaired and want the seat to look new, go for it.

Find a local upholstery shop, take it to them, and get them to give you a quote to fix it.

Our driver seat on our new to us 2010 Limited had a 4 inch crack in the bottom cushion. We wouldn't buy the Jeep unless this got fixed. Jeep dealer took pictures to send to Chrysler for a warranty claim. We have about 6 months left on the bumper to bumper warranty. The dealer said it shouldn't be a problem getting it 'covered' so to speak! We'll see, as they say! Dave.
