    Posted: 07áJuná2010 at 6:48pm
Hi to everyone.....I'm new (actually I'm not, I'm 61)!
 
Just bought a used very, very nice 1.5 DCI Tekna in Cafe Latte (tried drinking it) with red leather interior. Car is 'as new' except for the drivers seat which shows signs of premature wear to outer edge of seat back (even though only done 19k and the driver always wore a suit).
 
Anyone experienced poor quality trim, as described, before I go back to Nissan under warranty?

Welcome peter Big smile
 
Both my QQs (that sounds posh doesn't it?) are/were Teknas and QQ1 did 33000 miles with no sign of wear on the leather, just the usual characteristic ageing on the driver's seat - mild creasing - no more.
 
You say......... 'red leather interior' - do you mean 'chocolate' - like a tan colour?  Very long shot here, but if it really is red then it may be an aftermarket job - not Nissan.
 
You say.........'premature wear to outer edge of seat back' - could it be where the seat belt rubs, if the height adjustment has been too low?
 
Sorry that is more questions than answers but HTH.

If I am thinking of where you mean, I think its when someone gets in/out of the car, clothes rub against the leather.

I have the same issue on my BMW.  Some of the leather looks a lot more worn there than elsewhere and its all I can think of.  There's nothing wrong with the quality of leather in the beemer.  Just wear & tear I'm afraid.

That said I do think the leather quality in the QQ is looks quite poor.  Had it not have been a standard on the Tekna, i'd have specced cloth instead.  I thought the leather made it look cheap, esp. the stitching.

But when I thought about it, i really wanted the rest of the toys so decided to compromise.  Its one of the reasons I went for stone trim rather than black.  Its a bit of a gamble but I figured that it may look better than the black leather.

i think the graphite leather is lovely and the stiching sets it off well ,one of my favourite interior features but hey ho each to there own ,i had the harder leather in my last car ,very uncomfortable ,looks even better now its getting some natural creases in it

has the leather been looked after?, conditioner applied on a regular basis, this does help the leather,i apply conditioner and cleaner to my seats once a month,it softens the leather and stops it from cracking,

the trouble is craig ,once the leather starts to look worn it needs something to revive it, a couple of coats of condinitioner a few hours apart might help, it just depends how bad the seats are,
some lads on the audi forum have used this and swear by it  http://www.liquidleather.com/scuffs.htm i have not tried this myself so i cannoyt comment on it

hi dave ,sorry i should have said these will in no way repair worn leather,i just mentioned them as a good way of cleaning and feeding leather seats, i would be interested in using the liquid leather though
 
personally worn or damaged leather is best replaced or there is a process called tannelising (might have spelled that wrong) maybe that would help

Hi All,
Ordered my QQ yesterday, still awaiting a delivery date etc.
Was just wondering in the Tekna trim do you have a choice of leathers (colour wise) as standard or is it a set colour and other colours are optional at a extra cost.
 
Any feedback would be much appreciated Tongue
 
Thanks,
 
Danii

The current leather colours are Graphite (basically black) and Stone (creamy colour). Either is available  at no extra cost.
Some people on here have had some issues when ordering Stone and their cars have turned up with Graphite. There is some talk of supply issues but I'm sure someone else who knows more will be able to enlighten you more.

Did the dealer not ask you when you ordered? If not, maybe they are trying to reduce people ordering stone Confused

I think that's the Graphite colour - not "black black" (which is why I guess they call it graphite instead of black)

Hi Gemma,
 
Firsty thank you for your response and secondly Sorry for my late reply my laptop broke so haven't been online.
 
My dealer did not offer me a choice of leather colours the showroom car had graphite coloured leather which was liked so maybe she just presumed that was the colour i wanted. Have you seen the stone colour is it nicer etc?
 
thanks,

I've not seen the stone colour in real life, but there are plenty of photos in the gallery on this forum. It's a matter of taste as to whether you think it's nicer Smile

I think I read somewhere that if you want the stone leather you HAVE to make sure they include that information with the order.  If your thinking about changing do it yesterday.
