I was driving my car today and my steering wheel seems like it has dandruff. Its flaking anybody ever have this problem. I condition the leather once a month. My car is getting old at 14,000 miles already but the leather seems to be getting rougher.

the same thing happened to my car after only 5000kms on the odometer. After a huge fight with the dealer (involving them trying to say that I used a cleaner on the steering wheel, which I didn't) I had it replaced under warranty. Now i'm at 25,000 kms, and I have never placed my hands on the leather parts of the steering wheel, nor will I ever do so again

its probably because your hands are normally sweaty or you use alot of lotion and junk on your hands.

I did have my car in the bodyshop 4 times within the last month. :) I just had too many hands touching my car lately lol Then I had it at Circuit City getting my sub and amp reinstalled :)
