Default Leather care

What is the best product to clean and protect the leather in my 2001
TL?

Also, is the 2001 TL all leather, or is some of it vinyl?

Thanks!

I like Lexol. Seems to work better than the other's I've used
before.

It's a mixture of both.

The dealer carries an Acura product, which I have used and like.

Lexol is the awesome. there's 2 steps to keeping leather like new:

1) it must be cleaned
2) it must be conditioned, using conditioner sparingly (it's like facial
cream for leather)

my leather couch (italian leather, wife picked it out, my wallet empty)
looks and feels better than when it was new, Lexol even brings out the
leather smell again...

I use a leather cleaner/conditioner spray by Meguiers that seems to work
well. The seats always look showroom new!

Is that the white bottle with "Acura" in big red letters, and it says
"Upholstery/Vinyl Shine"?

The leather in my TL was very dry. It felt almost like paper and had
some fine cracks in it. I bought the car used. I have a feeling the
leather was never treated.

Anyway, I tried the Acura "Upholstery/Vinyl Shine". You have to apply
it, then wipe with a damp sponge, then dry with a towel. A real pain.
It seemed to clean somewhat, but did not moisturize the leather at
all. It still felt like paper. At least the stuff was cheap...

So I went and got some Mcguiars leather cleaner/conditioner. What a
difference! Just wipe it on. The leather now feels, well... like
leather! And it looks great.

I was worried about putting the stuff on both leather and vinyl. The
bottle said nothing about vinyl. But when I saw the results on the
seats (they are part vinyl), I ended up doing all of the vinyl, dash
and all, with the damp rag. It looks good, but I hope I won't regret
that.

It's McGuiars for me, now. Easy to use, great job.
