OK. But why leather? It's not as durable as Active X that Ford uses ( and many other companies now) I had quite a few leather interiors over the years..I know the problems. What is wrong with the Ford Activ X seat material? I think it looks good, does not crack and does not need maintenance. Regular leather requires special care and cleaning to keep it looking its best and to avoid cracking or tearing over time. Ford doesn't require a similar schedule for ActiveX, which can be cleaned with a standard leather cleaner when necessary. When stains occur, ActiveX holds up to a stronger type of cleaner and the material is more resistant to discoloration than regular leather.
