    Shopping for '16 Platinum 4x4 Crewmax
    I'm pretty sure I want a Platinum Crewmax. I plan on using this truck largely as a gentlemans truck until I can accidentally purchase a boat.
    (Whoops, sorry honey, I found this boat attached to my truck while driving home from the office. It followed us home, can we keep it?)

    The perforated leather sure looks nice, but I wonder how it will wear? Will it wear better/worse than the leather in the limited trim?

    Anyone have 100k miles on the perforated leather seats?

    from my experience I had limited leather in my last Tacoma the wife had perforated leather in her highlander the perforated leather is much better both held up pretty well but the perforated leather is more comfortable breathes better and also looks nicer

    Love my Platinum seats, and the smell of good leather smacking you in the face every time you get in isn't a bad thing. Then there is the cooled/vented thing, personally would never own any leather seat equipped vehicle without it going forward.

    I had leather seats in my 07 limited and had it for about 10 years. The seats all held up well, the stitching was tearing were my butt rests and the seat was I guess you call it tore or worn down to rip(?) were I get in and out on the edge of seat. clean it regularly with maguires leather seat stuff. But for 10 years of use it held up very well after gettin in it wet and sometimes covered in mud.

    Funny I hate all toyota leather seats, it's like sitting on a park bench IMO. So I switched out my limited's driver leather to more comfortable OEM factory cloth seatcover. It's way more cushioning to me. My wife's old 2015 limited 4runner leather seats sucked too. I guess I just hate leather, lol

    I felt like that on my dad's 2000 limited Tundra. I test drove a 2016 limited and they felt the same. The seats in my Pro feel better to me. My wife's seats in her Lexus NX are much more comfortable. They are the synthetic leather. I think they call it NuLux, but they are much more comfortable than the Toyota leather seats.

    If I remember correctly, the Platinum has Lexus leather and the Limited has standard Toyota leather. I would think the Lexus leather would hold up better.

    I probably should have sat in the platinum but didn't, I figured they were the same as the limited.

    I so agree. I had a Lexus before this with the cooled/heated seats and miss the cooling big time!
