Thanks to an 18 year old recall, the MR2 now has a brand new steering wheel! I had noticed on the MR2OC message board that there was a recall on the MR2 steering wheel dating way back to 1991 and there may be a chance my car would benefit. I do not know why they had the recall, but our wheel was showing the effects of age and ozone degradation on the foam padding. A quick check with the dealer showed our car was eligible! We went with black even though our interior is blue because we plan on changing the interior color soon.
