This car is about 2 years old, lives in a garage, and both the dealer and regional now have told me they will not cover the peeling wheel cover under warranty. That we must have put something on our hands to make it peel. We haven't. My Acura is 10 years old, and gets the same treatment, and no peeling there. I told MBUSA that there is discussion about this defect on here, and elsewhere on the internet, but they say since there is no recall, then they don't put any weight on complaints. They want me to pay them $250 to get it fixed. I'm kinda pissed off about it. What do you think?

Different steering wheel, different types of leather. You have not fully described what your leather is for the C class steering wheel.

I had an old 2005 BMW 5 series, and the leather on the steering wheel was peeling off. Hence these kind of issues really is affected by how you take care of the leather steering wheel. Some leather is more hardy, and maybe the "leather" on your Acura is not really leather, but some of of synthetic "leather" which wears better.

I treat my CLA leather steering wheel with Lexol leather cleaner monthly, to remove the sweat residue, excess oils transferred from the hand, and it's been looking great for the past 7 years, like it's right off the showroom.

In any case, I suggest you check out this forum below, which is more appropriate for your C-class vehicle

...What do you think?
Hi Claudiaq, Welcome to the CLA Forum :)
a) Please upload a picture.
b) What is your production date, Month/Year?
c) Dancla250 had a similar issue and got it resolved.
(I will message Dan and perhaps he can join us here.)
d) As mav238 suggests, also bring it up on the C Class Forum.
