Can't agree more. Apparently, circulation is more important for my body than temperature. It can be 70*F outside and I'll still have backsweat in these seats.

That is unless they cut corners for North America again.
Good to know. I have leather The SEL trim with leather should have been perforated. They cut corners in both my Lexus IS and ES. Bastards But the seats were oh so comfy and the perforation is not a gimmick. In summer, the ac blew right up and felt like little fairies kissing my butt lol. .

Miller88 Didn't know they switched back to real leather.

2001 was the last MY for a while that they used leather.

Ford utilises leather’s natural appeal

Nothing can match the immediacy of leather in making an impression. “When you open the door of a leather-trimmed car there’s a real ‘wow’ sensation,” says John McLeod, chief designer, Vehicle Personalisation. “The first impression the customer gets from that fragrance and then from the feel of the material is extremely important. Leather exudes a quality that makes the customer feel good about getting into the car every time, and that’s exactly what we want to achieve with our cars.”

As well as the extremely high standard of leather interior present in the new Ford Focus, the Galaxy, S-MAX, Kuga, Mondeo, C-MAX and Fiesta ranges all offer high quality leather interior options. Windsor leather is a “full grain” leather as opposed to the less luxurious “corrected” leathers that are normally seen in vehicles of this category. It is used on the entire seat, right down to the piping and back map pockets, whereas the norm is to use vinyl on the sides and back of the seats.

Ok Ricardo; back to the 80's .

I had a Cordoba, but it didn't have the leather, though.
