I’m curious, has anyone ever determined what exactly causes all of these soft touch buttons, be at Ferrari, Maserati, Aston Martin, BMW, Porsche, etc. to become sticky in the first place? I’ve heard some speculation over the years that it is possibly caused by UV rays from parking out in the sun. However, I find this hard to believe because my 2005 Quattroporte spends 99% of its time in the garage and only has 10,000 miles on it. I never use any chemicals whatsoever on the interior on my car to clean, only microfiber cloth to wipe away the dust that accumulates.
Starting about 6 months ago, I started to notice the the buttons of the sterring wheel becoming sticky (which I hardly ever use). And yet other pieces such as window switches, mirror adjustment switch, climates buttons, radio buttons (that are used on a regular basis) etc. are still in perfect condition.
Its crazy.... makes no sense at all.
