My leather seats are not real leather they are actually a form of pleather a breathable leather that is man-made. About 4 years ago it started separating from itself causing peeling on the interior of my car. When I brought it to the dealership in Thousand Oaks, CA I got the complete run around when I called coporate and warranty I got the run-around. Most recently and unfortunately, the paint started peeling on my car when I ask the dealership about it I got the complete run around again I suspected either vandalism or factory paint failure. I trusted Acura with my closest friends and walked five of them into the dealership at different times and actually helps them by their car. All they had to do was run financials and sign papers. I did all the work including the test drives and wheeling and dealing. It seems that once you have a real problem is going to cost any amount of money they charge you up the ying-yang just to diagnose the car. Fixing it is another story. One with a not so satisfactory ending as of yet. I really like the car and would like to trust the brand again, however, it's been costing me a small fortune. Only 90K miles on the car.

Is anyone else having issues with the paint or leather interior peeling?

My paint started randomly chipping of drivers door and rear bumper in chunks, I took to the dealer and they just told me that since I was not the original owner they can't prove that the cat wasn't repainted in the past. But having worked at a body shop, I know for a fact this door is original and was just badly painted. Some starring and cracking appearing on the same panel. I didn't know that this was a known issue! I will probably be contacting customer service! Worth a try anyway....

Honda has horrible painting issues and I think the Honda Civic 2006 -2013 have the worst cases with the clear coating peeling. As for the tsx, 3-4 doors are rusting. Trunk lid with the a spooler on it is rusting. I literally just dropped my car off at the body shop yesterday (05-12-22) for a complete restoration job. New doors, trunk lid. Entire car getting redone. The rust spots are common on the TSX. The car is beautiful but the paint issues with these cars give it a bad eyesore.
