So after approx. 31,000k or 1 year and 9 months of ownership the leather on my steering wheel is starting to peel, related issue can be found here:
Steering wheel replacement (warranty)
It's quiet disappointing, since I was just doing my regular leather cleaning routine with "Meguiar's Leather Cleaner & Conditioner" applying even pressure throughout the entire steering wheel surface. Also a while back the leather on the automatic gear knob started to peel but it was not a big deal or similar as per what is currently happening with the steering wheel.
Should this be covered under warranty?
Mine is the same. I've always had Mazdas and never had this issue I've only done 2700 miles in it and I've never scratched it or wear any rings but it's wearing where my right hand is on the wheel. It's very annoying and very noticeable with the driving experience.I've been using an aftermarket leather cover since I got it. I have no idea the condition of the original leather.
