What's Up With My Driver's Seat

After 5 months of ownership this is what my driver's seat looks like. Is this about par for the course or should I be concerned? Please refrain from any jokes about my a$$.

If you put a rag in water in a glass bowl and put it int the microwave, then take the hot rag out of the water and lay it on the leather where it's deformed. It will "shrink" the leather so to speak. Do it every few months.

I had a Destiny's Child reference joke ready to deploy, but refrained since you requested. Any who, I've heard of the warm cloth trick working too, so I'd go that route. Hope that helps!

Our Odyssey is doing the same after 7 months. I call it normal.

I'd say it's normal, mine looks basically the same. Only the driver's seat though since I hardly have any passengers.

Do you keep your wallet in your right back pocket?

Seriously this forum never ceases to entertain me! You actually used brain power to worry about this and finger energy to type this message (not to mention the time to take a photo and post it)?

What did you honestly expect people are going to say? Yes this is a major problem with your car, and you should get a new car under warranty? Yes this is majorly unsafe? Yes this looks horrible and nobody will ever want to ride in your car and will think you are a loser because you have a slight ripple in the leather on your seat?

I realize my post might seem like a rant (and to some extent it is) but I am geniunely interested as to what feedback you thought you'd be getting, so pls post away.....

thanks!

Marty... why so negative? After all, you clicked on the thread using your finger and mental energy in which you are also wasting. Lay off and go to another thread, you are a perfect example of people these days who bully and try to pass your negative energy. Have a great day and OP I say it is normal.

"Seriously this forum never ceases to entertain me!" You must love the entertainment because you seem to come back for more.. Don't like it? Don't post! Trust me no ones feelings will get hurt!

Umm Okay you're right, I now see the error of my ways DGCoupe!

I do enjoy this forum because it has a lot of good information. I do also shake my head when people seem to worry about silly stuff and complain about the smallest things on the car like it is the biggest deal. OP wasn't complaining, but was worrying. I'm basically telling people to chill out and focus on the important things. Yes I wasted finger power typing, you're right. That's not the point. So you honestly are concerned for the OP that his leather seat has issues to worry about? Answer honestly. My post was simply saying "my gosh quit worrying man"

And to OP, I apologize if I came off as negative but I still stand by my view "quit worrying, man"

Do you carry a thick wallet in your back pocket? What happens is your seat is cold when you get in the car then hit the seat heater and it goes from cold to hot real fast expanding... then you get out and it gets cold again fast stretching it out over time. The hot wet rag trick mentioned earlier works well. All honda "leather" seats are pleather FYI.

Honestly NO because I have a month old sedan. If I had the same concerns down the road Yes I would be or atleast I can keep an eye on the seat just in case mine does the same thing if not worse within time. Do I read post to possibly lead me to answers to my questions down the road that I may encounter about my car? OFcourse.

Wow. An actual solution to the OP's concern! Thanks Accord V6 for us that appreciate answers instead of sarcastic uncalled for remarks (Marty).
