I live in AZ with 110+ summers that my car endures all day in the sunnlight. I have no crackled leather and my interior is good. 38000 miles on the car right now. I use eagle One leather Conditioner on the seats. It rox!! Pinnacle is supposed to have good leather conditioner as well. Have Acura replace your seats under warranty, then invest in some of that.

How did the new leather hold up? Was it the same material? Or higher quality leather? And did it crack at all? I only have about 8k w/ over a year of ownership and it cracks like shit.

It was the same seats, just new leather covers, basically the leather we have is like a jacket, it zips right on, so they replaced it with brand new leather. And its doing fine now, but i have never used leather conditioner or anything kinda leather product on my old ones, I am gonna start using it on these new ones thou. Best of luck, they should replace em for free

speaking of leather seats...are the base seats exactly the same except fabric?
Yeah it's the exact same design, just that the base comes standard with cloth but you can get leather as an option.

cuz i have i was thinking about swapping my two front seats for cloth seats
Why not go check out the dealership if you can get the cloth seat covers instead of the hassle of swapping it out? Might be cheaper too.

I have actually had all 4 seat covers for both front seats changed over now, first the passenger seat, and driver back within a year of my car, and the driver seat and passenger back last summer. all under warrenty w00t!
the newer leather is alot softer, and holding up alot better.
