The leather on the center console cover deteriorated at one spot about the size of a quarter, almost as if it had "melted". The new console cover was ordered & replaced. The leather on the driver's seat was replaced over a year ago due to premature wear on a 4 inch spot. The replacement cover had a few wrinkles in it when it was installed. One of the wrinkles was showing wear. The cover was taken off and reinstalled. The driver's side window started making an unusual noise every time it was lowered & seemed to have some play. It was serviced but not parts replaced. The problem is better but not resolved completely.
