After reading the manual on how important it is to use Ford leather conditioner on my Fusion's seats I find out from my dealer that they can't get Ford leather conditioner for some dumb reason. I wanted to use their product as our seats have a clear protectant on them and I want a product that won't mess with that. They are re-checking for me because I told that is ridiculous that they can't get it, I see it advertised in every accessories brochure. They tell me it is just available in the US.

In the mean time can anyone recommend a good leather conditioner ?, not looking for any cleaner, just a good conditioner that will keep the seats in good shape in the long run.

thanks

Joey

Thanks for the info, I'll definitely check it out, sounds pretty good. It should hold me over until my dealer can access the Ford stuff.

I use Meguiars Gold Class Aloe cleaner and conditioner on my leather seats. It works great and doesn't make the seats slick or slimy at all.

Thats good! I tried the "wipes" they have and they were horrible.

I second Meguiar's Gold Class aloe cleaner and conditioner. I've used it every month since I bought my car in April and they keep the seats looking great. Plus, there's no slick/slimy feeling that you get with other cleaners and it smells pretty good too.

Are you using the wipes or the liquid?

I'm using the liquid/gel. It's the only way the aloe cleaner and conditioner comes. I never had a good experience with any products that come in "wipe" form. I like having the 2 step products, because then I know the leather is being cleaned and conditioned.

I use only Meguiar products for all my car care from washing to cleaning to waxing.  Check out www.meguiarsonline.com   I never would have believed there could so much info on taking care of your car.  Be prepared to sit, click and read.

I decided to use the Meguiars spray on product, the one with aloe, it is pretty nice, I'll definitely keep on using it, it apparently contains uv protectors as well so it should be a good long term product.

I have a suggestion for you. If you want a very good, economical conditioner, purchase some mink oil. Mink oil will still allow your leather to breathe, but it will help water proof it and it's a great conditioner and will keep your leather looking great. I use it when I detail Harley seats.

Lexol has an auto care line now. I've always had good luck with their stuff on basically anything leather.

They also have an interior/exterior plastic/vinyl protectant which I've been wanting to try but can't find.

I've got some of the meguiars leather cleaner coming I can't remember but I think I bought the spray and not the wipes hope it works I bought it to protect the seats from the sun and to keep them looking nice longer not to mention they';ve already seen a few spills of soda and tea etc from passengers so they need it

I recommend leather master leather protection cream

it has a matte finish, and actually succeded in repairing light scratches and wrinkles

this is the shit

"Leather Protection Cream is a water based protector for all leather types except Nubuck. It's not a typical conditioner. It uniquely provides protection against oil, water, and alcohol based stains, as well as providing resistance to the effects of daily soiling.

Leather Protection Cream places an invisible, breathable barrier between you and and the surface of the leather. Unlike leather "conditioners", this cream will NOT make your leather shiny, sticky, or leave any type of film on the surface. It leaves your leather exactly like it was when new.

Leather Master's "Protection Cream" contains no petroleum distillates. It's natural oils, acrylic resins, and polymers protect the surface from stains and keep the hide supple.

I waited until the new car smell was all gone before buying the Meguiars spray for leather and using it. After application I noticed (I have the black on black interior) that the seats were not slimy or slippery but they do make that noise a lot more (you know that sound leather makes when you move on it, kind of like someone farting). The seats did look a bit shinnier than original and now have a deep black color. I have a bit of an experiment going on. On the driver seat which gets the most use, I used leather cleaner (a mix of mink oil, aloe, and some other junk) which I bought for my coat, and the rest of the leather was treated with Meguiars. The Meguirs was the most expensive one on the shelf but the mink oil stuff costs twice as much for about half the quantity. After comparing the two, the drivers seat is as soft as the other seats, doesn't have a film or slim, isn't shiny and the color isn't a deep black. After a while I'll look around and see how they compare and will try to update this thread if I can find it again. I didn't bother adding pics because the camera can't really pick up the differences that clearly.

Happy driving
