My 19 ORP is about to start peeling after 2Ĺ years. I've owned almost a dozen vehicles over the years, including my Tacoma that I had for 11 years. The is the first that I've had the steering wheel to start deteriorating.

looking for links to covers people used with good results
My 2018 with 55k miles is pealing at the top. Like you said odd spot since we do touch that part of the wheel much. Car has been pretty much garaged itís whole life so only sun when out and about.

Yes, mine is too. I have a 2018 Toyota Runner with 31K on it. I didn't notice is until yesterday when my boyfriend pointed it out to me. It is on the very top where the sun would hit through the windshield. I'll take it in to the dealership but I am not getting my hopes up.

Also, before it even had 5k on it the bottom part of the driver's seat (where my bottom sits) started to wear, a "pill" or a snagged type look, as if something rough had been dragged back and forth on it.

I was mad, I paid a lot for this vehicle and the fabric was already starting to wear. When I took it in to the Toyota dealership they denied my claim and said that I did it, that I must have been wearing something unusual that caused it.

I stand 5"2 and 100 lbs. As a woman working in an office I don't wear ANY rough type clothing. However, I do need to hoist myself and slid my butt in when climbing into it. I am the only driver. So, to me, this material should withstand a small butt being lightly slid back and forth against the fabric in the first 8 months of use! The fabric is defective and it sounds like the steering wheel plastic is too.

Yes, same here. I think it is the sun coming in through the windshield. I can see it wearing after several years of use, but at only 3 years and 31K I say the material is defective and consider this pre-mature wear.

Unfortunately the Limited has the regular wheel too... at least mine does. My 18 Camry has a nice leather wheel. When I drive the Camry to work, it has a nice feel to the wheel. They screwed up the Limited, it should have had the wooden wheel or similar. I miss my LS460 steering wheel, it was the best feel. I found some "MIT" ones on the net, that look great! Black piano finish. pricing is reasonable too. It's in my cart, waiting for me to hit buy now...
