Need Help with an 05

I'm looking to purchase an 05 GC w/ 72K and the steering wheel is worn at the 12'0clock and the drivers seat has a slight tear on the sliding in and out of the vehicle.

Is this an easy fix? Do I have to replace the whole steering wheel? How about the seat? Can an upholstery shop do this?

Both can be fixed. I have both the same problems. Not sure on repair costs but I know others have had it done. Seems like some people do steering wheel skins/covers and others opt for trim shop work.

So a shop that does interiors would do the wheel also?

Instead of paying extra for the steering wheel just wrap it in para cord, it's becoming more popular and looks pretty good too IMO. But yes an upholstery shop should be able to do both

If funds are tight you can use vinyl adhesive with color match to fix the seat. I did mine. For the steering wheel, you can purchase a new one at moparpartsdiscounted for a few hundred dollars. You may need to email them directly with your color and trim details.

Most important is to check that the oil changes were done every 3,000 miles. Seek proof.
