100K car and fake leather?? Tesla salespeople told me that the reason behind it is that Tesla wants to be more green. I personally don't care what material they use, as long as it's comfortable and doesn't cause any issues, but here is my problem with fake leather: In the hot weather (above 90F) with the thermostat set to 66-68F, I feel cool, but places where my body touches the seat fake leather (my butt and my lower back) after 15 minutes of driving, my skin is so hot (in those places) that it feels like the leather is actually burning, and after 20-30 minutes my butt and lower back are soaking wet. That is just plain: ridicules. I had 5 cars before Tesla, all with regular leather and never, ever had any problems like that.
