Frequently Asked Questions
DOES KATZKIN OFFER LEATHER INTERIORS FOR ALL CARS AND TRUCKS?
Our product line is comprehensive and is constantly expanding. We offer over 2,500 vehicle applications for virtually all mid-market vehicles on the road today. Unfortunately, we do not make interiors for luxury vehicles that come with leather from the factory. If you do not see what you need, just give us a call at 1-888-KATZKIN, and we can help you find it.
HOW DOES THE QUALITY OF A KATZKIN INTERIOR COMPARE TO A FACTORY-INSTALLED LEATHER INTERIOR?
Katzkin leather interiors are produced from the finest imported automotive leathers and are specifically engineered to meet or exceed factory performance specifications. Our quality and craftsmanship is tested and trusted by Chrysler for their entire family of vehicles (Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM and Fiat) as well as the Ford Motor Company.
Is this product a seat cover that I can install myself?
No, these are not seat covers. This is a complete interior transformation. A Katzkin authorized professional installer will remove all of the cloth from the seats and replace it with a new leather interior, complete with door panels and console covering (depending upon the vehicle). A good rule of thumb: if it has cloth on it, we will replace that cloth with leather.
DOES IT COME WITH A WARRANTY?
Yes. Every Katzkin leather trimmed interior is backed by a 3 year/36,000 mile national warranty.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST? CAN I FINANCE A KATZKIN INTERIOR AS A PART OF MY NEW CAR LOAN?
Suggested retail prices for Katzkin interiors range from $1,995 - $2,295 for a 2-Row interior. With a new vehicle loan, qualifying consumers can finance their interior, often for as little as $29 per month. Please contact your local Katzkin authorized professional or dealer for exact pricing for your vehicle.
HOW WILL MY NEW LEATHER INTERIOR AFFECT MY AIRBAG AND OCS SYSTEMS?
We perform a detailed inspection of each seat and our interiors are designed to maintain the integrity of the original airbag and OCS systems. We also perform ongoing safety testing using OEM factory specifications to ensure we continue to meet all factory requirements.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET LEATHER INSTALLED?
In most instances, your Katzkin leather trimmed interior will be delivered with your new vehicle when you purchase at the dealership. A Katzkin authorized installer can generally install your new interior in 2 days or less.
WILL LEATHER ADD VALUE TO MY CAR?
If given a choice, most consumers prefer leather. Leather not only provides visual appeal and comfort, but also has tremendous practical value due to ease of clean up and maintenance.
WHY CAN'T I ORDER MY INTERIOR ONLINE?
In order to determine the exact seating configuration of your vehicle, an authorized professional Katzkin installer will need to inspect your vehicle. With 100s of color and seat variations across dozens of makes and models, we have found that this is the only way to ensure that the right interior is manufactured and installed in your vehicle.
HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY NEW INTERIOR?
In most cases, the leather will wipe clean with a soft cloth and a small amount of mild soap and water. If desired, apply a generous amount of leather conditioner, such as MOTHERS leather cleaner, and allow it to penetrate your clean leather for about five minutes, then buff off with a soft cloth.
NEVER USE ABRASIVES OR SILICONE-BASED PRODUCTS! These could damage your leather and may void your warranty.
Are your interiors 100% leather?
Our leather content will always meet or exceed the leather content of the original vehicle manufacturer's factory design. We ensure the only the highest quality leather, suede and vinyl materials are used to maximize comfort, design and durability.
WHAT ARE ALL OF MY OPTIONS FOR MY NEW LEATHER INTERIOR?
