Divers armrest began to soften and buckle then one day I opened the door and the leather open and essentially burst. Also the cente panel is beginnig to buckle as well.
Driver's side door arm rest cracked with a hole under the fabric, uncomfortable and from what I hear a very common problem. Whats up with this Honda?
09-11-14 *UPDATE* Got a call from the service manager of local Honda dealership, he ordered the part for me and they will repair it. He said I will only pay 10% of whatever it is and if I pay $20 thats a lot. Appointment is for next week to install the part. Once I get it I will remove it and build up the area where it split with epoxy to hopefully strengthen the weak point to prevent it from happening again. I will believe when its all done, if they fix this the way they did Honda might have a solid customer. I thought service like this was a thing of the past? We shall see.

Honda Accord LX 2008- leather door frame, arm rest and center console- all bubble and crease. This is an issue with the 2008 Honda Accord. The dealer fixed it as it happened soon after I purchased the car- within 4 months- both the driver door and console. Now, it is not covered and I would have to pay for it to be repaired. It looks terrible and apparently is vinyl, not leather, I have read. My solution is to fix it myself or pay through the nose to pay for poor quality to begin with, which is probably what I will end up doing some day. Such a shame! Car looks good at first, but I don't think is as nicely made as I had thought originally.
This isn't a structural or performance issue but just one of those little things that go bad on cars far too soon.
