My wifes Lincoln does that automatically. Its a great feature and her leather is no where near worn and its almost five years old. But it was semi glossy to begin with. I think I will just have to live with the fact that the seat will wear like this as I have the seat up closer to the steering wheel than other cars so I can have the right grip on the steering wheel. Oh well... I do not love the car any less for it.
