Faux pas leather disintegrating

Just after we purchased our 2011 Serrano
31Z last year, we having problems with most all the faux pad leathers peeling.
Any solutions out there other than total replacement.
Manufacturers honoring any workmanship defects?

It's vinyl bonded to a backing and isn't repairable.

I don't know where are you located. If I would have that problem (I did few years back on my Jaguar), I would drive it to Mexico, and pick the finest hides for everything to be reupholstered with. That's exactly what I did with the Jag. CHEAP, and VERY quality work down there.

First.......

Glad you joined. Not the answer you want to hear, but here is not much you can do with that problem, other then replace it.

Good luck with your fix.

The only choice you have is to replace it with something else. You only mentioned pads leather failing, in any case it's not treatable and replacement is the cure. Any furniture that is advertised as leather and is bonded leather will not last. Good luck on the replacement.

Danielsand, I love the Mexico idea. I also have a Classic Truck, 28 Roadster that I need upholstery work done. All my options here is so very expensive. Any leads that you could share with whom, what town in Mexico that would be good place to start. My wife and I are semi retired, so time is not a factor.

I had my Jag done in Rosarito. Don't remember the name of the shop any more. Like I said,......don't know your location, or which area of Mexico you are close to. Craigslist has "services" advertised for Tijuana (my closest), for example.
It's NOT hard to find the shop (and look at the workmanship first hand). Nowadays,.....any info you want, is available over the web.
