DON'T use any Armor All products on it. Maguires makes a very nice leather cleaner/preserver. I have been using it for years.

Lexol was prescribed for my truck. It is good stuff, but there are several ways that the leather is prepared/tanned, so you do have to make sure that whatever you use wont stain. My truck, a Ford Lariat - I can use the Lexol, the King Ranch Version leather needs the KR special stuff as anything else will stain.

Meguiar's - as is their polishes, good stuff too.

Check the owner's manual!!!!
