Leather looks great but I prefer cloth. I hate hot leather seats in the summer

Leather! Why buy a nice car like a Bonnie and then saddle(sorry) it with anything less than the best?

Ok who'* answered different then what they actually have on their car?

I never liked leather too much on other cars, but in the bonnie, the seats hold you well, and they're perfect for leather. I like the way they feel, soft, but don't hold you from friction. Leather seems to be cooler on the bum as well, and isn't so hot for long periods of trips.

Yes you have to be more careful with it, but it'* well worth it IMO. I've never had a big problem with it getting silly hot/cold in my car. Even without tinted windows.

I agree with you completely. I once had a Honda Accord with leather seats and I hated them. As a kid we had a 66 Thunderbird with leather (black) and they would blister your legs in the summer...hated them too. Swore I would never get leather again. When my Grand Prix got totalled by hail I decided I wanted a Bonne...wasn't looking for leather...didn't want leather...but the Bonne SSE that I found had leather. Wasn't sure...until I sat down in those seats...and I loved them. Most comfortable seats ever in a car. And I believe the leather makes them better. Now I'm hooked. Wouldn't want cloth in those wonderful...space ship like...bucket seats. And the leather just looks classy.

I'm torn. I love the smell of my leather. But Damn when I go to work at 6am and leather is ice cold I miss cloth. Do have to say though Leather is much easier to keep clean in case of spills but cloth you just vacume.

Just paint me Torn!

My father has a 93 Bonneville with the velour cloth seats. I have a 95 with leather. I have to say that the cloth seats simply do not compare to Bonneville leather. I'm not sure if they engineered it on purpose, but the leather seats (front and rear) are firmer and more supportive, while the cloth is a bit mushy, and leaves your lumbar asking for some help. I've had friends of many different automotive pursuasions, and they have all said that my Bonnie'* leather seats are by far the most comfortable they have ever sat in. I would have to agree.

I just hope that my next car can have those great Catcher'* Mitt gloves that are the Pontiac trademark.
