Our 22,000 mile 2012 CT with factory leather seat option is showing wear on the side bolsters of both front seats. The dealer took pictures today and sent request to Lexus to authorize repair or replace seat leather.
Is anyone else having issues?

i had the exact same thing on both bolsters when i turned the car in on lease two weeks ago. it looks like cracks in the material. i was wondering if the side bolster was really leather or if it's some kind of synthetic. seems to be very thin in this area.
i thought it might be the way i slide into the seat (which is normal), but then the passenger side showed the same wear too.

All car leather seats have a coating, usually polyurethane, over the leather. The cracks are in the top coating, not the leather. There are cleaners and treatments to reduce the appearance of the cracks. It happens to most Lexus vehicle side bolsters. There are a few threads about it under other vehicle forums here at CL.
