I bought a fully loaded 2015 QX60 one month ago. I love the car, but I'm pretty disappointed in the leather seats. The front and back seats both are "bubbled" underneath where the thighs would go. It's hard to explain but to me it's like the leather is really loose. Is this normal?



In addition, the side of my drivers seat is very cracked/wrinkled already - looks like I've had this car a lot longer than I have. I'm afraid of what will happen in the future if they look this bad after 4 weeks.



I'm taking the car in tomorrow to have the passenger seat swapped because when I bought the car there was a 3-4 inch crease in the leather (they transferred it from another dealer so I didn't see it and then decide I was buying that one - I didn't see it until after I did all the paperwork).

I'm hoping I can get them to address the other seats when I'm in tomorrow but wanted to get other opinions. I'm hoping I don't have defective leather especially since I already have one seat with a documented issue.

Thank you!

I'd bring the issue up with your dealer when you are there, so the (potential) problem is logged. But if I were your dealer, I'd suggest you wait a few weeks or a month and see how they look. Infiniti is pretty focused on your satisfaction, and I have seen them replace seats with problems. But like I said, give it a little time to see how they look.

Is this not normal? Mine is 3-years old and I have the same wear on my seats.

I'll mention this next time I bring mine in.

They'll look just fine in the future, mine look the same as that. I clean em' around 2 maybe 3 times a year with a leather cleaner/conditioner spray but they still have those minor lines and 'bubbles' or waves, been there since relatively new that I remember. Enjoy the car and don't nitpick stuff like this IMO, it'll make for a miserable ownership.

On some level, you are correct, but the OP is right to complain. The leather on the QX60 is soft, but it also stretches a bit. I also recall seeing this on my seats early on, but the good news to the OP is that I don't think it gets much worse.

Leather seats in my other cars didn't do this until much later.

Of course he has the right to complain, you said basically what I said except I offered advice to not nitpick small things and enjoy an otherwise decent vehicle. Life is too short and in the end this IS a small thing.

Thank you everyone for the replies.

I absolutely LOVE this car (so much better than my 2006 Honda Pilot I traded in!) and I'm not trying to be picky. Our auto detail guy was the one who noticed it when I was having the exterior waxed - he was shocked that a car this expensive would look like this after 4 weeks. I will go ahead and put some conditioner on it now and hopefully that will help. And since my car sits in the sun all day while I'm at work, I think I will buy a sunshade. Florida sun is hot and strong!

I brought it up a the dealer today and they said it was normal, but just keep an eye on it and we will see what happens over time since I have so much warranty left.

Again, thanks for your help!

David, I think if you go with any modern car seat system that uses the latch system, you'll be ok. There are very stringent regulations and requirements for car seats nowadays.

For my son we used a Britax convertible seat for a good while. It's the kind where the base connects to the latch system and then the car seat itself clicks in and out and can be seamlessly taken from the car and clicked into the stroller. We had no problems with it.

For our daughter now we switched over to Graco click connect, same design with a base that stays in the car and the carseat clicks on and off. The only reason for the change was because we researched double strollers and preferred Graco's offering. But I had no complaints with the Britax system and I don't have complaints with the Graco system.

I don't see why anyone would claim the car is not safe for car seats.

The latch system is very good for keeping them in place, and you can even double up and run the seatbelt through the carseat base as well for double protection. Thankfully, I haven't been in an accident yet with this car so if the car is terrible at protecting the children in that situation, I guess I don't know. But I feel pretty good with both my children in the second row. My understanding is that the car has side curtain airbags so those should kick in in the event of an accident and protect the passengers, be they kids or adults. Most new infant car seats (both I've tried) also come with padding and protection themselves for the unlikely event of an accident.

Right now my daughter is in the convertible rear facing seat and my son is now in the fixed front facing seat. We can fit my wife or mother in law in between them two and so far no problems or concerns.

In addition to what NemoEsq said, I recommend getting good quality seat protectors (see example below). I've used Summer seat protectors for 5 years in my QX, and the seats still look new when I remove them for cleaning.
