Honda CR-V Seat Belt Buckle Scratches
I bought my new CRV LX only two months ago. A few days ago, I noticed scratches on the interior side of my car next to the seat belt on the driver's side. Then I noticed that my seat belt buckle rests between space between the driver's seat and the side of my car. It turns out the that the width of the seat belt buckle is too big for that space and doesn't lie right against the seat, so everytime I put on my seat belt, the buckle rubs against the interior side of my car, leaving scratches. I noticed all the seat belt and buckles are too close to the interior sides of the car on the passenger side as well as well as the back seat. Overall, all seats should be spaced farther away from the sides of car to avoid this. I called Honda and filed a complaint with this as this shouldn't happen. They said if there more complaints with this, then can proceed further with this, so for now, its under review. FYI..pay attention to how your seat belt buckle rests on the side. Call Honda if it is scratching your car so it can be documented. I say this is poor manufacturing.

Of course, I'm not going to blame any of it on the fact that I'm a person of substance, and I'm probably squishing out the seat back padding a bit wider than a smaller individual would.
My seat is moved all the way back, and tilted, so that I don't even see the B-pillar...
I guess, I should complain that the bricks I was carrying from Home Depot scratched the cargo bay
Oh, wait, it is just a car, meant to be scratched, driven, taken off-road... unless one keeps it in the garage or museum.
I think the seat belts are not attached properly, mine does wiggle and twists so easily. When the salesperson at the Honda dealership showed the CRV model in the showroom, that car didn't have the problem with the seatbelts. If others are having the same problem, then it should be reported as it is then an manufacturer error. No fault of our own since it is their error that is causing the scratches.
I'd second that. Nothing wrong with taking good care of your car, but in the end, it is supposed to serve you, not the other way around.
yes, very true!
But can't I just enjoy the brand new flawless car for just a little bit
