Question Limited Leather

Anyone know how much of the seating surfaces are actually leather on the limiteds? Specifically a 98 limited. I know leather seats does not mean the whole seat is leather, front and back.

Thanks

It is the seating surfaces that are leather basicall all the parts your body will touch. Which means the sides of the seats, back and side of the headrest are all something else. At least that is what it feels like in my car.

My 98 GT Limited has leather seats and all the surfaces, except the back pieces and side pannels are leather.

Does this apply to the rear seats also? I have heard sometimes in cars with leather the rear seats are not.

The seating surfaces of my '99 Legacy are all leather, however the Front seat backs, and some of the rear-seat surrounds are done in some sort of vinyl.

Having said all that, the leather seats are really no better than the regular cloth seats in other model legacys (imho), and in hot days the leather can get a bit sticky... the rest of the time I would say that it is significantly more slippery than a cloth seat...

Neither seats appear to be engineered for 'large' size adults, and pretty much all Pre-2000 Subaru Legacy seats can turn uncomortable to sit in for very long drives...
