re:Leatherette issues - testing my 325 in 32degree C temps here in Toronto

As I was checking out this car on a muggy hot and humid week I couldn't help but notice that the leatherette made me feel like I pissed my pants. Just soaking wet, I mean I know it's not leather but it felt so fake and sweatty on the butt! How does one cope in Houston - humidity capital of the world so I'm told? - and yes my body weight is proportionate! so no fat sweaty jokes!

My husband and i just got back from a 1500 mile trip - we both were back-soaked with water..cause it was hot here...I think they should offer a perf. leatherette..aftermarket will have one my husband thinks soon.. or I will have to get some good old bead seat cover to use...

Is not an issue of leatherette.
Cloth will absorb your sweat, leather and leatherette will not.
Might I suggest tinting your windows to block out some of the heat?

Yeah we actually get heat in Canada too! How do you cope in Texas?
Do you put cloth covers on your leather!

Yes, most people live in the southern parts of Canada where it gets really hot.
Add to that the problem of global warming.
