    Same problem, independent shop advised common issue & no real repair possible due to cheap "pleather" used on interior doors, center console, glove box.

    This is a particularly bad when your tan peels off and is black underneath! Am embarrassed to give anyone a ride in my outwardly beautiful car, and the "re-touch" paint just looks cheezy... really my only complaint about this car, bought new in '01 and has been peeling for past 6 yrs.

    no solution except to replace i suppose. the "leather' coating scratches easily and has peeled of in several areas on center console and glove box. we just bought this vehicle used and it was like this already.
