Re: Best way to protect the leather interior?
My question would be is what Subaru calls leather actually leather? I have cloth in my XV but leather in my Tribeca. I don't image the materials used differs that much thru the line or from 2012 to 2014. I'm using my brother in law's Acura as a reference point here. Those seats are definitely leather.
My Tribeca's seats border on the plastic-y side to the point where I question if it is actually leather. In which case leather conditioner wouldn't help and likely costs many times what ArmorAll costs.
Regardless, +1 on the sunshade and also, for road trips, etc. it wouldn't hurt to invest in a decent seat cover.
If you've come to help me, you're wasting your time.
