I have a black interior. I often put my arm on the door mounted armrest. I have noticed that it starts to look pretty dirty. I don't know why they made this out of material instead of vinyl since it is harder to keep clean. Same for the center armrest.

Mine is padded vinyl on the arm rests. Higher up is hard plastic. Should be easy to keep clean.

Let me guess, cloth interior? When I test drove a lattitude that was the first thing I noticed, the cloth on the door and console armrests was already dirty and I couldn't wipe it clean. Plus it seemed like it was a loose fitting material with a low "thread count" if that makes any sense? That pretty much sealed the deal for me purchasing my trail hawk! Even with the cloth seats (which I really like), the door and center armrests are the vinyl material. I think I would visit an upholstery shop and get them recovered in vinyl, I bet it is cheaper than you might think.

You are correct. However I could not see going for the Trailhawk as the Latitude meets 99.9 % of my needs. Also the leather in the Limited made no sense to me for this type of vehicle. You would think it would be cheaper for FCA to make a vinyl armrest standard across the line.

I have used Meguiar's, quick interior and exterior detailer's for several years. They keep
your vehicle clean and I rarely need to wash my cars. I also use micro-fiber cleaning towels
to wipe the detailer off. The towels aren't hard on the paint

Those detailers aren't good for fabric material. I use a spot remover for cleaning fabric.

Thanks. I have the limited with leather so really no fabric to speak of

What a great question. I am a clean freak, and it seems like those seats attract dirt. I may get some seat covers. I keep a detailing cloth in my center console for dusting and premoistened wipes for car interiors. For the seats, I have been wetting a face cloth and gently rubbing the seats. Let me know if you think of anything better!
