    An owner of a 2015 Ford F-150 complained on a forum about problems with his steering wheel peeling and looking bad. Other owners are reporting similar problems. TorqueNews.com reports.




    An angry owner of a 2015 Ford F-150 started the conversation complaining that the leather-like finish on his steering wheel was disintegrating. Tenacious from Florida wrote “More falls off everyone time I drive, it's happening in a few spots. Anyone else have this happening?”


    A driver who goes by Bleda agreed. “Not surprised, the leather on my steering wheel is probably the worst quality leather I've ever had in a vehicle. I honestly thought it was vinyl.”


    An owner from Colorado was stunned. Platinum said “Are you wearing Gloves that might be abrasive? The wear looks unusual. I've owned many Leather F150 steering Wheels & never had a problem.”

    A driver from Maine tried to help, “It's vinyl coated leather. The vinyl is flaking off. It's a covered repair under warranty if you take it in to your dealer.”

    A Canadian driver is similarly angry, “Mine isn't peeling but it sure looks shiny and crappy, considering how fake and terrible the leather is I'd expect it to wear better.”

    Has your F150's steering wheels acted like this?

    Why do you think it's getting worse year by year? Cheap materials? Or Cost cutting?

    Agree but goes beyond steering wheels. I think the seat leather is crap, what little actual leather there is. All that fake leather is terrible too.

    The answer is the swap to a Limited wheel. Costs about $280 but the leather on the Limited, is well, limited to that truck and is the real stuff. If you can get past the orange stitching, which really doesnt look bad, it is the way to go. Feels totally different. Still waiting on mine to be delivered. Sad that the Platinum also has issues with the "leather" on its steering wheel. Ahhhh Ford...what were you thinking? This is a Chevy or Dodge move. lol

    The steering wheel is actually one of my favorite things about the truck. Mine is fine. I've actually remarked a few times a out how the steering wheel just makes the truck feel high quality.

    I replaced my stock uryethane xl steering wheel with the ford leather wheel.
    what a pos that is.
    I bought a new wheel cover from redline installed with padding.
    dark green leather with lime green thread.
    excellent piece, 100% looks and feels. matches my gem green perfect.
    too bad cant seem to down load pic, used too?
