I applied and then buffed out a coat of Lexol leather preservative on all my leather right after I got my car new... it softened up the leather quite a bit (which, from sitting outside for a while waiting to be sold, and in a closed hot car, likely somewhat "cooked" the leather)… went from stiff and scary to almost leather couch comfy. And don't forget all the other leather "bits" (like the panels on the door and on the center console, etc, as well as the back seat).
I noticed an immediate improvement. Do NOT use something like Armor All (which is really BAD for leather) but something made to nourish and feed leather.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try a bigger hammer.
