    Do leather repair kits work well?

    I have a tear in the back seat of my car.  The seat costs a lot of money, and I don't want to spend that much.  I've searched for solutions over the Internet.  I see leather repair kits, but I'm skeptical.  The kits are so cheap!  Do these repair kits work?

    If the kits you are referring to a like the one I purchased for my couch years ago, I would say that the results are ok.  I had a tear in my leather couch and purchase a vinyl patch/leather repair kit.  It was easy to do but you could still tell that the couch had been damaged and repaired.  It really was just like a putting a band aid on a wound. The color didn't quite match and the tear eventually re-opened because it was located on a spot that was frequently sat on.
