Some cars have limited stock on the dealer because they are not very popular. When the dealer have some of these cars, most of them have leather for the seats making very difficult to find the right one.

Do you guys prefer leather over cloth? seems that dealers prefer to order leather than cloth

i dont like leather because it gets hot on summer and cold on winter...

Leather but I have heated seats and cooled seats so I do not struggle with the hot/cold seat problem.

Cloth is easier to maintain IMO so I prefer cloth.

Leather is easier to clean spills, if you have little ones. Other than that, looks nice.

Cloth is much easier to maintain and less susceptible to damage from everyday use. I've really never understood why leather is considered an "upgrade" honestly. Functionally, it's a downgrade.

Leather will last longer than cloth if properly cared for. If you change vehicles every few years it's probably a minor point.

I have both, in the 97 it's cloth and in the 06 it's leather and heated. I actually prefer the leather because it doesn't stain if something gets spilled on it, of course you have to wipe it off. The cloth in the 97 cleans up well to you mostly have to use something like goof off or oops if it stains. I have always used the Scotch Guard treatment on the 97 Cloth and the Leather treatment on the 06. Just like anything else you have to take care of it. My wife's Edge has the leather also and she likes it over the cloth as well. Oh yea and the heated and cooled seats are nice too.

I had light gray cloth interior in my '94 chevy. They were scotch guarded at the dealer before we took it home. Red mobile 1 grease, a big red soda, and brazos river mud along with 20 years of use failed to put one stain or tear, or even a bad wear spot in those seats.

My wife's Explorer has leather and I hate it, too dang stiff on long drives. Feels like I'm sitting on a piece of wood. By the time the heated seat warms up your rear end has already acclimated to the leather.

I prefer cloth, and have it in my personal truck. My company truck has leather heated and cooled, and it is ok, I don't like the slippery part of it. My wife's Expedition has leather with the heat and cool and I really don't like hers at all. But to hear her talk, it is a neccisity. I always get the grey color and Scotch Guard, and have no problems with cloth. I had a pickup with vinyl once, it really did suck.
