    I'd not seen it before on the leather Fiats, but I did a Google search for leather+wears+off+steering+wheel and it looks like there have been many people having the problem with all kinds of cars.

    I do remember the vinyl wearing off on the shift boot and the shifter knob in an old Datsun pickup. It baked in the sun, in a hot area, so I assumed it was from heat/sun and long-term wear.

    Did the whole thing just crumble off all at one time? Or has it been chipping, rubbing, or scraping off over time?

    Thought I'd look up some info on sweaty hands. LOL.

    This fella really has the acidic hand sweat!:

    And there are plenty of links within the thread on various aspects. It's interesting. And it's worthwhile reading a bit about, to understand why/how some things can be worn or damaged, simply by handling them in a usual fashion. I recall someone on the forum wearing the lettering off the radio controls or something like that, and they too could have the acidic sweat. They may not have had the problem previously, it could depend solely on the type of lettering compound used and it's interaction with the sweat.

    Didn't you read the owners manual? It clearly states not to chew on the steering wheel.
