I have a 07 with gray leather 23,000 miles and still looks new. I use Mequires cleaner wipes every month or so.

I currently have a 2006 Azera with the light tan interior. I had the very problem you mention. I even had a situation where the blue dye from my jeans rubbed onto the seats. Anyway, great way to remove stains and make the leather look brand new is get a Mr. Magic Eraser and clean the seats with that. When you're done, there will be a bit of residue left behind, just wipe down with a clean damp cloth and then apply your favorite leather conditioner when you're done.
Oh yeah, the Magic Eraser works great on dash marks and finger smudges too!!!

I have an 07 azera with 11,000 miles on leather looks as good as the day I bought it. I also have 2 puppies that ride frequently and think it is GREAT to put their muddy little paws all over the seat. I suggest (I do this) getting some of the leather cleaner wipes and keeping them in the car. They work great!!

I had the black, but it was still cheap. I think I had around 12k on it and I got a rip on the driver's door side. Dealer fixed, but I wonder what type of cat they got this hide from. I have a Ford with over 100k and I have never ripped the leather on it

I've got the beige leather interior with just over 76k miles and no rips or tears at all. Only thing I really need to do is a good cleaning and conditioning as it has been a little while.

I disagree. I have got a beige interior in my 07 & it looks great. No sign of aging, creasing etc. Hyundai has used really good quality leather & it shows. I can snap some pictures if you want proof.
But then again, I take care of my car. I have a no-eating & no-drinking policy in my car. And I clean the interior myself. I don't let some carwash guy to smear some chemical onto the leather.

Yes, a good cleaning & conditioning is a great idea. I know you won't but please don't use some El-Cheapo brand. Use Meguilar's.....worth their weight in gold...

Trust me...I have learned that sometimes, saving a buck or two can cost you down the road. I do use quality products in regards to the upkeep of my car. Mequiars is truly at the top of my list. I use their mist detailer, car wash soap, leather conditioner and their NXT synthetic wax. I also use the Mother's clay bar and Eagle One wheel cleaner. Yes, I have learned my lesson when using cheaper products, you end up paying for it in other ways.

Lexol leather cleaning and conditioning products are very good also.

Go with the black, it is much classier looking too. The beige and gray do soil and stain . Check out edmunds.com for their test drive and they say the same thing.
