Steering Wheel Peeling
Bought my car,used, 2 months ago. The steering wheel was fine, looked fine, and all of that. About 2 weeks later on a humid day I noticed that my hand would have flakes of the covering on my hand and it was showing that it was peeling away. At first, it was just small spots here and there but after a while it became the whole steering wheel.
It is still peeling away but it seems only on humid/warm days is it the worst. At first I was looking for ways to stop it from peeling but feel it's too far gone to do anything like that. In some spots it has peeled away to the point where the foam underneath is showing.
Just wondering if there is a way to "fix" it or do something that will make it look less like crap. Everyone around me tells me to just pick up a steering wheel cover, but I am not a fan of those and rather try to fix the steering wheel directly. I understand I can just replace the steering wheel but am looking for a cheaper alternative at this point, unless I can't. But do wonder if I got the whole steering wheel replaced what are the chances this will just happen in the future?
I'm just really baffled at how when I bought it, it looked fine but then after a while it started up. What could have caused it?!
