    Default Leather vs. Cloth trim (car)

    My dog has a little bed she sits on in the car to avoid this. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1433217912.093382.jpg

    ETA: she is a bit of a ratbag and sometimes moves around and despite having very soft (but good quality) leather she hadn't left a mark.

    Leather. If your getting a territory why can't you put the dog in the boot?

    We don't live rurally,however after bringing home take-away Indian curries etc and trying to change gears and hold onto the take-away and failing, I say leather all the way! If it were cloth, it would have been a right royal disaster and not to mention smelly for ages!

    The dog I'm getting is a kelpie, so thankfully short hair. And dogs travel in the front passenger foot well in my car (when I babysit dad's kelpie that's where she goes).
    We are a family of 7 so the dog will only be able to go in the boot when the 3rd row is folded down.
    Still deciding if I want to spend the extra money, and the 'sticky when hot' factor almost puts me off leather.

    Definitely leather seats! Easier to clean and look after.

    Leather is too hot in summer and too cold in winter, I've had both, but give me cloth any day!

    Leather. Easier to clean. I haven't found it gets too hot in summer (and I live in Queensland so it gets pretty hot here). I do have window tinting though so maybe that's why.

    When we had a dog I had cloth seats. His fur was always everywhere on the car seats even when I had covers down. His fur stuck in the fabric and most of it wouldn't vacuum off. Such a pain.
