Default leather seats or not?

I'm looking at some used Accords. Most of the 2008 and newer models all have leather seats. I've never had leather seats. What are the good and bads about leather? What's the maintenance like? Any info would be helpful, thanks.

i cant stand leather seats in the summer time! if you wear shorts it makes your legs sweat and they dont breathe..at all! lol but on the other hand I have to owe the life of my seats to the new leather covers i have on my seats because i left my windows down and turned on my sprinklers after a few minutes i remembered and shut them off and all the water had just pooled to the middle and simply wiped off instead of soaking in and never coming out! comfort wise cloth is better but style wise leather is preferred

I've owned both and currently have black leather in my EXL. Personally I think leather is way nicer than your "cheaper" cloth seats in lower models but I'd probably prefer "higher end" nice cloth fabric.

I've had both. Although leather may get hot and cold, if stuff spills it's easy to get off. Cloth rips and gets dirty easy, plus if u get a stain it's a pain. I've got leather seats in my 06 accord and I love them. It gives the car a more luxurious feel
