    I have the sepia colored Laguna leather and my wife got some bad stains on the drivers seat. Any idea on if the leather can be replaced or something?

    Hello, and welcome to the forum!

    I am really sorry that this has happened! Forgive me if you have already done so, but I would go by an upholstery shop and at least give them a chance to see if they can get the stain out. If they can't, could perhaps dye them a darker shade? Then you would have a custom interior, and it would hafta be more affordable than replacing the leather completely. I hope that you get it fixed and are happy with the end result! Let us know how it turns out. Good Luck!

    Ya went to one shop that said they would need to order a replacement leather covering from dodge that's like 2000 just for the leather. I'll have to keep trying different shops.

    Please take this as a joke....
    Sell the wife, she is obviously trouble. Use the money to buy a new seat.

    And welcome to the board. If you can, post a picture of the stain. What caused the stain? Coffee? Maybe we can suggest a cleaning product.

    Yes, I would file a warranty claim for the sagging leather ... there are other forum members that have had the same problem. It is not a widespread issue, but it is a known issue. I dunno about the riding commando, though! LOL!

    Dodge will likely fix the seatback covering, but you will be on the hook for the bolster problem. Did anyone mention that the leather is imported from Sweden?
    BTW, no one here would blame you for Ray Riceing her ass. Just kidding.:D

    thats some bad diarrhea that it burned the top layer right off;)

    id hold off and look on ebay over the next few months for people selling skins....ill bet someone is customizing their seats and will be selling their stock ones.....i wanted a spare set of skins for my gt500 and i see them for sale on ebay all the time.....i think you will find a whole set for the whole car for under that $2,000.....the ones i saw for the GT500 were always around $1000 for the whole car

    just to update people yes my seat had a spot where the leather was wearing away which is why I think they are denying my warranty claim. At first I thought my wife caused this spot but after talking to her when she got home today from vacation she told me all she did was wipe the seats down with a slightly damp rag like we do every week and that spot started to appear and my wife is not a liar that's for sure. So I don't know what is going on with this leather but obviously this leather has been defective from day one. The point is my leather is severely sagging and wearing like its 20 year old leather and I deserve it to have replaced like everyone else did so I'm not gonna standfor this from dodge.
