Passenger seat leather is peeling and cracking quite badly. It's quite an eye-soar right in the middle of the seat near one of the seems. When I complained to the dealer they said it would not be covered under warranty since it looks like they were scratched and would cost a lot to repair. I mainly use the car for work and hardly ever have passengers in the car so I'm not sure how this happened. Less than 1 year old and the seat looks like it's been used for 10yrs! What kind of cheap a$$ leather are they using? My old Acura TL never had this problem even after 11yrs of constant use.

The bottom part of my seat broke, and it was the first month I had the car, that they had to order the piece and replace it.

Was very cheap made.

The leather on the drivers seat and the passengers seat had started cracking on the side of the bottom cushion. The dealership said they would replace it under warranty, but that we should buy a conditioner for it. They actually gave us some for free. Once the seats were recovered we conditioned them, however they are cracking again!!!!

I have been cleaning my seats w/ lexol cleaner & conditioner ever since I've had the car . I've noticed over the last 8 months that the passanger & driver seats have gotten discolored & practically destroyed. Honestly, the seats make the car look at least 10 years old! I took the car to the dealership today & the guy made it seem like I was sitting in the car w/ razorblades. I told him it's not normal for leather seats to wear like this w/ just normal use. I baby my seats & take care of them. All he was willing to do was replace the back cover of the drivers side seat. He was very rude & acted like he was doing me a favor. A favor would be replacing both seats. I have dealt w/ so much bs from honda. I almost want to trade it in for an american car.
