peeling leather steering wheel

I have read a lot about Elantras (and other models) experiencing issues with the leather steering wheel wrap peeling and finally experienced this myself...

I purchased my 2013 SE couple in September and just noticed my wheel has a patch at 12 o'clock. It looks as if the leather broke down in that area and started peeling when I rubbed my finger across the patch. I do not wear rings, hand lotion or use any kind of cleaner on the wheel ... so it looks as if this issue is affecting the 2013 models as well.

So I brought the car into the dealer, they took pics and said I should hear back in a day or so as they needed to get approval from the Hyundai rep.
