    Get a place that does leather and refurbish. Here in Pretoors dorp it costs R1 500.

    No car manufacture will swop out a steering wheel, gearknob and drivers seats that's worn out ....

    Once bought a s/h vehicle with very low mileage and only noticed excessive wear on the steering after cleaning it properly some time later, it was visible but i missed it. Went to business to complain and they did not sort me out. They said that it probably had been swopped out with a worn one for a friend as an insider job, this from one of the employees.
