Are you talking about the vertical ripples/tears, the horizontal bulge, or the entire thing? If it's damage you've accidentally caused, like the vertical tear, no dice.6000 miles, 1 year later - same problem.
What was your experience in reporting this problem? Will Honda say that it is my fault?
Nice avatar. I moved out west from pictou county 10 yr ago. I've been considering replacing my 17lx wheel with leather but dealership wants 190 little pricy if they're prone to peelingThe steering wheel in my last car peeled & was replaced under warranty. Black leather wheels are usually painted black too to even out the colour. The replaced wheel eventually peeled too but by then is was well worn with dirt and oil. It still looked fine.
these are just wrinkles, it will improve a lot if you use a leather conditionerGot in to my Civic Touring today to drop something off and noticed that part of the leather on the bottom right of the steering wheel is cracking.
I've only driven the car for 1500 miles and had it for about 50 days or so. Any thoughts?
scratched with a ring or nails. happened on my previous car so i dont wear my ring anymore, wife is not happy about it but car comes firstThe leather on the steering wheel of our 2016 Civic Touring is peeling. We had the steering wheel replaced after 2 months, however it is doing it again. They're still trying to decide if they're going to allow another replacement under the warranty. I don't use hand lotion or hand sanitizer if I'm going to be driving and my rings have no sharp edges, however they are telling me it is not a manufacturer's defect. :-( Other than this I absolutely love my car. The picture is for the more recent damage but it has gotten worse since, is actually peeling.
I don't want to assume too much, but if you are female, and you tend to use "Hand Lotions", some can have a severe detrimental effect on a rubber/plastic coated steering wheels, especially if the wheel is exposed to a lot of strong UV light from the sun.scratched with a ring or nails. happened on my previous car so i dont wear my ring anymore, wife is not happy about it but car comes first
When you say “wrinkled” what exactly do you mean? Did it change and get that way?My sport touring wheel was wrinkled 3 days after I got the car. I ordered a Type R wheel and that is wrinkled in the red on the bottom. Honda is replacing it for free once I send it back. I feel like I'm going to get a messed up one and am going to have to spend $350 or so on a custom.
