Looks like a boat seat. Perhaps the previous owner was older and getting incontinent?

That looks terrible, and I'll bet it feels even worse. At least they were honest enough to fess-up that it's pleather...so many people are either stupid and don't know the difference, or choose to ignor the difference.

I love a leather seat but don't mind vinyl.

They don't look that bad to me. Better than dried out, cracked leather.

I thought the same thing. Perforated would be nicer though.

If you can't afford to do it right don't waste your time. Hell Sheep skins would have been prefered to that mess. Just wait and buy a set out of a wreaked sec. People spent some money for that and it's useless.

They are in SoCal and could not find a Mexican upholstery shop to do a proper job? It could have been really done well. Instead it looks cheap. The side stitching is not even among other things... Looks like somebody bought vinyl at the local "Micheal's" and did it themselves!

I don't think they look that bad either....looks like a nice car.

Maybe they wanted to have seats in their land yacht like in their sea yacht.

Oh dear. Maybe it rides like a boat, so you need the interior incase you get seasick.

Look at those wheels, I'll bet the owner is the coolest guy in the whole retirement village.
