    The drivers seat on my '15 is getting a bare spot from wear and age (90k miles)...

    Anything special to fix it? I was thinking of re-dying it black, and some polish, then lots of buffing...

    I purchased leather cleaner and dye (kit) from this website for my 2015 Expedition Limited 4x4: https://classicleatherdye.com/

    The dye on the leather cover and vinyl (“Dune”) was wearing off.

    The instructions were easy - and the re dying of the bare spots was very, very easy and I was pleased with the results.

    The interior quality of the seat covering, on the up-level Limited model, is very poor.

    The driver seat bottom cushion cover was replaced twice while under the new-car warranty (delivered new with the stitching coming apart and later the stitching in another area came apart).
