  8. Leather upholstery

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I wanted to buy the 2013 CRV EXL with nav - until I saw how awful the seat upholstery is. Why oh why oh why did Honda choose to go with a pleated/shirred upholstery? I don't know of any other cars - including the Pilot, Accord, and Civic - that have upholstery like this. The Accord has a very...

    Anybody know if Honda makes an upolstery cleaner? I have that ivory color interior that comes in the Borrego Beige CR-V. I'd like to clean it up a bit, but am skeptical against using just any cleaner for fear of damage or fading. Help!

    Eastern & Central Canada Owners
    I am looking for an upholostery shop to install leather skins on my CRV. Does anyone know of a place that does decent work and is not crazy expensive? It looks like a 1 or 2 day job for someone who knows how to do this. I received an astronomical quote from a body shop that was recommended...
