Leather furniture

I have a 2012 crossroad cruiser. We paid extra for lesther couch and 2 chairs. The leather is now flaking off. We have taken care of the furniture by using leather cleaner and conditioner to no avail. Has anyone else had this problem?

Just replaced our two reclining chairs and J couch. In our 2013 Rushmore Jefferson. I posted it under Rushmore, furniture upgrade. Our fake leather furniture did the same.

We bought a used 2014 Cruiser with the same type of fake low grade leather. The sun had already helped the recliners start losing the leather part. My wife just bought some covers off of Amazon.

Other than that your option is to replace the furniture with something better.

I just noticed another thread about replacing the furniture.

Yes, flaking off leather is a common problem. Whenever I complain about this kind of things with the dealer, he usually comes with a variety of reasoning. According to him, it is happening because of the change in temperatures and usage etc.

When I talked with friends, they suggested the use of leather oils. Though people usually use leather oils for boats and jackets but yes, I am applying them on my leather sofa because I recently purchased a new cover for it and I don't want to make it saggy and allow wrinkles. Let's see how this oil protects it.

However, in my opinion, the flaking thing only revolves around the poor quality of leather. Even it happened with my leather jacket last year.
