My seat is cracking too. I think it is because they used a new kind of material and testing didn't show any problems. It's only a little bit on my drivers side seat. I've only heard this about the '03 and '04's.

Add '05 to the list. My driver's side seat is starting to get that little crack/tear thing going. It isn't too big or too bad yet. I figure if it gets too terrible, it'll be a good excuse to get some of those Wet Okole seat covers... :rolleyes:

Yeah, My 06 is all jacked up too. Hey, what about the floor board bubbling up. Anybody have that issue as well?

I notice a lot of complain on pre-07 fabric tearing, specially on the side portion of the seat. Just wondering anyone with 07+ has fabric tearing issue?

I know Honda used rubber-feel-like FXC material for the side portion of pre-07, I believe for 07+ this side portion FXC material is changed to more canvas like FXC material.

Maybe this is non-issue for newer model?;-)

If you do a search in this section you will find a few threads addressing this very issue
I have a 2003 and have the same problem
I just bought the front OEM seat covers and covered up the problem.

Honda's testing didn't match real life wear and tear...............

Front sear Fray

Not a tearing issue, but I have an 08 and the driver side seat is starting to fray. I purchased the car just over 1 year ago and was told by a dealer that it was not covered. Seems a little ridiculous that the seat is starting to wear down when it's not even a year old.
