I am considering a 2007 CR-V and I went to the local dealer today to take a test-drive. Upon remarking my continued disdain at Honda's choice of only offering certain options on the trim line with leather seats, the salesman responded to me that they were not actually *real* leather. I was shocked. I kept on to make sure I was understanding him correctly and he insisted that it was 'manufactured leather,' not from any animals and to get a vehicle with real leather seats these days you have to go very high end. I was baffled as to how they can advertise seats as leather when they are not (and yet at the same time VERY excited as this is what has kept me three cars in a row now from going with Honda). Then I saw the sticker says "leather-TRIMMED seats." So, is there just one tiny patch of leather hidden somewhere and they are plastic?
Does anyone know?
