Many have mentioned on the Acadia board that they are getting scuff marks from their shoes on the plastic trim...mainly with the ebony trim. Is this also happening on the Enclave?

I was really leaning towards the Acadia until I saw pictures of the Enclave with the ebony leather interior. The contrast of the ebony leather with the wood just blew me away.

I have the ebony interior and two children (7 and 4). Yes, the ebony shows scuffs. They easily wipe up with just a damp cloth, but no sooner do I get it all wiped down, and the kids get in the car and it's scuffed again. I even notice it on my door, when at times my shoe will hit it. It's more of a dusty mark than a permanent scuff.

I do not think my kids are overly rough on the interior of my vehicle, but they are kids. I have put the seat guards on the backs of the front seats, as my youngest is in a car seat and likes to put his feet on the back of the seat in front of him. I am constantly reminding him that that is not where his feet belong, but at least I don't have to rewipe the seat every day. And I keep a dust rag in my glove box. Sometimes I pass it back to the kids and make a game out of them cleaning up their marks.

I LOVE the look of the ebony with the wood (prefer it much more than the other options), so I don't think I would change my choice if I did it again. And, just like my white kitchen cabinets, I figure my car will be cleaner because I will clean it more.

But if you are looking for an interior that does not show any everyday usage, ebony is not it.

ken, i totally feel your pain....mine are a little older now but they put a hurting on my light tan interior of my volvo. lord have mercy... it looks awful... i would rather have the scuff marks than the seats to look like they were once ebony lol.... all the cleaning, treatments, carwashes, whatever didnt matter, even down to having it detailed once a month omg. i dont want light color interior as long as i have children. light colored interior will be for my two seater sports car when i grow up. :blob: i not only love the way the ebony looks but it will be the best option for me.
