Q: Are leather seats worth the extra expense?

Michael says....
The pros: They look and (sometimes) smell luxurious, are easy to clean up (think kids/coffee), can feel like your fave couch at home, and have some value come resale time. The cons: They are about a thousand dollars extra, their slippery surface allows more sliding around in turns, and they’re more prone to cracks and rips, as well as uneven fading from the sun. So do the pros outweigh the cons? You be the judge.
