Leather Seat care?

In the past, I've used lexol conditioners and cleaner for leather seats. I'm not sure if the seats are synthetic leather and need a different cleaner/conditioner?

just to be sure, what year model are you rockin'?

do you have your interior looking like it's from the factory, or have you given it that old school shiny "armor all" look/sheen?

ive a 2012 QX aniline leather. i keep the interior that "matte" look as was from the factory. I use meguiars interior cleaner to keep dust and fingerprint oils away.

depending on what trim level you have, its wise to look in the operator's manual and see the recommendations from nissan (assuming you have the factory seating and not something aftermarket).

Did you read the manual for what is recommended? I dont know if the new armada have different trims levels in terms of the seats, but on the new qx thats real leather.

I checked the manual and it only talked about washing the interior with a mild soap.

Look on your window sticker (did you have one?) and it will list if they are leather or not.

Worse case? Test an small inconspicuous spot to see how it looks.

You can contact a local dealer? Give then your VIN and they should be able to let you know if they are leather ?

If you have a top trim package on the armada, they are most certainly leather...

I used lexol in a spot. It looks great. I did the rest of the vehicle. It really needed it.

That’s what im talking about!! get in there and just do it! Happy it worked.

I used to have a Vw Jetta turbo writhing leather and I used lexol on those seats and the smell was soooo delicious. Seats were beautiful. I’m a fan of lexol....
