I have own 1988 and 2000 Honda Accords. The 2000 Accord had leather seats which were of great quality. However, I am disappointed in my 2012 CRV leather seats. You are absolutely correct, the stitching is poor and the seats have a wrinkly appearance. I have applied a high quality leather conditioner twice with the hopes of improving the appearance of the leather and it has not helped. So, I have concluded that the quality of leather in my 2012 CRV is not good and I am concerned how it will look a year from now.

I often wonder if the posters with their questions ever come back to see answers to their questions..
Been a few since this one too..
I don't think it is just Honda forums, but am wondering if they aren't a bit worse though..
So much info and knowledge can be shared through other's experiences, but not if it isn't actually shared.

Sometimes the trick is just to answer the question, knowing that ten or more luckers will find it via a net search. A few of those will take the time to log in and say thank you. Either way, you're likely helping way more owners than you ever considered.
And thank you.

Yes, that's true, Steve. And of course you are welcome..I guess it's just me, but if I ask a question like that and get an answer I can really take to the bank, I'd jump thru hoops if necessary to log in to actually thank that poster.
But what you say is quite true, probably many other eyes saw it and took it to the bank. Similar thing on a Prius forum I noticed lately. Guy posted some great info for owners. Not a single person thanked him. So I did..months later mind you..and I'm not even a Prius owner, but thought it was good info to know. Hopefully he finds out someone cared enough to thank him.
Ya know...I wonder if this would be a cheap/good/effective way for the site to cover this aspect by enabling a 'like' feature? I noticed another poster posted that as a suggestion on the New Forums thread started a short while ago.

Thumbs up are good but I'm holding out for a context sensitive real time grammar checker myself - the older I get the more irritating typos I make.
Although, I suppose someone showing up and getting help via a net search could be called a "lucker".
Part of it is that people want an answer and they move on to the next search hit to see if the answers they are getting make sense. Or maybe they hope there's an easier/faster or cheaper solution they can try first. And then they forget where they got help. Who knows. Just human nature to jump through hoops to gripe but not take the time to acknowledge help.
Honda owners are especially nice about that stuff though.

haha, I knew what you meant.. and hey..no doubt about it..searching and then finding answers are definitely luck(i)er if they find 'em..
#6901 of 6928 Honda CR-V noises
Mar 03, 2013 (10:17 pm)
I have noisy lifters most of the time hot or cold engine - what is the cost to have them readjusted? Also, periodically, i get a high pitch squeal that comes from the front right as I accelerate and then a few seconds later its gone. Thought it was breaks but after replaced still happens
Last item - can someone describe what I would feel (if there is any difference) for a 2WD vehicle that has misaligned front end or possibly bad tie rods/rocker arms. Steering wheel shakes and vibrates after going 45mph to about 65 then seems to be less pronounced at 70mph or higher

I have a new '12 that is ready for its first maintainance per the reminder. Mileage is about 6K, mostly city. The first indicator is O/C and rotate tires. I have no problem with the O/C but is it really necessary to rotate tires every 6K (which is probably about average mileage between O/c going forward. Seems like I could rotate every other O/c

Thanks for your help. Since I took your advice have not heard it once. (note that this is not the same car, I posted above, I have an 04 with 140K and a new '12.

TheRiver: Rotating tires 6K is highly recommended to both extend the life of the tires and to keep your ride smooth and pleasant. Moreover, it is even better if tires are Balanced & Rotated every 6K. Your Dealer/Stealer will charge big bucks to Balance. Thus, when you replace your current tires, buy your next set from Costco, Walmart, or some other "bigbox" outfit, that will include Balance/Rotation every 6K for the life of the tires - in the price of the tires. Good luck.
