#12 of 15 2007 MDX leather seat issues
Aug 03, 2010 (7:27 am)
The MDX leather seats are a problem; poor quality, soft, hard to keep clean and stain very easily, especial with jeans. The indigo from levi's is staining the leather. This showed up a few months after I bought my new MDX. I tried the recommended Lexol cleaner and the stain never came out. There is a blue hue to the seats on all the stiched edges, extremely difficult to remove. The leather in general does not clean well and is showing wriknkles. I
believe the over quality of the MDX Acura seats are not holding up well. The drivers side does not have the support it originally had either. I checked with he dealer and they are still using the same poor quality leather in the 2010 models!
I have a 1999 Honda Accord with light leather seats and the drivers side looks newer than my 2007 MDX, what does that tell you? Very disappointed in ACURA

I would agree as I am having sooo many problems with my Acura MDX 2007. Dead batteries, engine humming noises, electrical issues big time, lumbar went out and the seats look like crap. Hate this car really. I am just waiting for someone to steal it.

I am looking at a 2011 MDX and trying to decide whether to spring for the tech package. Does anyone know if the leather upgrade with the tech package is appreciably better than what comes standard on the base?

I leased a 2011 MDX 3 months ago, I think it was the Tech package. Anyway, the leather is really cheap. 1 trip with 1 dog resulted in some big scratches and gashes. 14 years with Land Rover vehicles and 3 dogs resulted in minimal scratches and no gashes. Also, my clothes and belt are rubbing off on the driver's side seat (again, nothing like that happened in 14 years driving Land Rover products). I'm trying to get out of my lease now if I can.
