No on S-series, Yes on L-series (including cars purchased in the future )

Leather + Heat-butt feature....the best combo in winter.

leather looks nice but you tend to slide around a bit, and when it gets very hot not all that comfortable.

I prefer Cloth.

Collecting my new vue Saturday !!!!!

I have leather seats in mine. After 143,000 miles they still look brand new. They do get hot, but at least they are tan, and not BLACK!!! My Jeep has gray vinyl seats, and those things get REAL hot.

Cool What a spring!

It's mid May and I am still using the heated seats.

It's been nothing but rain and cool weather for well over a week.

My lawn is looking like a jungle with all the rain.

Personally, I don't find the leather that bad when I drive to hot climates, even though it's black. *Vinyl* seats, on the other hand, *those* were murder in the head.

Vinyl seats would never last. I have never sat on such a car seat that would get so hot. Leather seat get nowhere near as hot as vinyl.

Of the nine Saturns I have had 2 have had leather...My 94 Pearl Homecoming and my 01 10th Anniversary edition. Leather really does nothing for me. I'll say I liked the half leather half cloth of the Homecoming Sedan best.

Did base Saturns every come with Vinyl seats? I noticed that a lot imports use to put vinyl's in the base cars. I remember a friend's late 90's Tercel having vinyl seats.

No! Summers are very hot in South Texas. Unless, I want to slide myself off the seat with a spatula, I will never have leather seating in any of my cars---Saturns included!

Leather would be nice, but so far I'm comfortable with cloth. Cloth seats feel VERY NICE in hot weather after you've been in an air-conditioned office all day. Ahhhhhhhh! I can feel my muscles relax!

Default Re: Does Your Saturn Have Leather Seats?

Yes, I have leather, and for that privilidge, the cow bites back. In the ATL, it tends to get hot, and leather, while it looks good, doesn't feel good when the temperature in the car is 120 degrees. Those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, observe this the next time you prepare breakfast: a bit of oil on a hot skillet, that "sizzeling" sound: heat, oil and skin! Thats the experience I most associate with leather. The REDLINE VUE has suede inserts, that lessens the effect, but make no mistake, you feel the heat. Don't laugh. The guy wearing driving gloves in the summer is essentially wearing automotive oven mits. Grab that hot leather wraped steering wheel, and touch 120 degrees, remembering to hang on to it while it cools off!

Happy Re: Does Your Saturn Have Leather Seats?

My current vehicle, a 1999 Buick LeSabre Custom has leather. I love it!

This is the 1st auto that I've owned(only owned 2 others) that has leather.

I'm pricing out a new 2006 Vue, and there are only two options (as of right now) that I'm adding to it; LEATHER and the upgraded MP3 CD player.

The one thing I've come to know about it is that it's easy to keep clean. You can get some leather conditioner/wipes and it looks close to new.

Also, it's great for those times when you are WET (i.e. leaving amusement park or swimming) as the water just repels right off of it.

As some other people mentioned, the trick to not getting "burned" is to have tinted windows. I've never gotten burned by heat, but . . . I've gotten "fried" by coldness in the winter. Let it get about 30 degrees outside, open your door and plop down on that seat -- you'll be saying "Yow!" real quick. LOL

Even with that minor issue in winter, I prefer it over cloth, now that I've got it. The LeSabre has ruined me as far as leather goes. . .

To me, the one-time cost of ~$700 isn't that bad at all. It's well worth it.

My RL has the best of both worlds (as far as I'm concerned.) Leather trim with cloth inserts; no temperature extremes where you sit.
