I thought leatherette was supposed to be long lasting that leather?

Any advice?
hey i had the exact sameproblem on my car with leathette. The dealer replaced the bottom seat cushion and leatherette no problem under warranty. I am only 170 lbs and had the car for 2 years. They wrote on my receipt that the cause of cracking was due to the cushion in the seat collapsing.
