1. Yes, some of the first batches of the OEM accessory seat covers ended up staining the seats. Acura had acknowledged and corrected the flaw, and issued a TSB for replacement of both the seat covers and the leather seating surfaces. The repair was covered under warranty. I have the Acura seat covers on my second row. I've pulled them off for cleaning, and there is absolutely no evidence of them staining the leather surfaces.Covers will make it worse. Even the original ones stain from what I've heard.
Cleaning alone is not an adequate solution. I wear faded blue jeans most days, and never encountered dye transfer until I got the MDX. It happened very quickly. I ordered several different high end leather cleaners but the results were mixed. It took a bit of effort the first time but it came clean. It became more difficult each time. I became concerned with slight damage from the cleaning to the leather material (really plastic-impregnated leather) so bought some CoverKing seat covers and found them effective if not as nice as the OEM leather. I bought the poly-cotton drill. They fit very well but are a bit light-weight and prone to wrinkle on the bottom. I got a color that was close to the leather (parchment) so if there is any dye transfer happening I can't see it. I will probably go with a better material in a year or so. I do recommend CoverKing; they have a large selection of fabrics/styles/colors that are cut to fit well (including openings for the air bags).
I haven't seen the cordura material from Coverking. My guess is that the Cordura should be more durable, as it's been used in motorcycle riding apparel for preventing road rash in accidents. I'd also imagine that the neosupreme material would be more comfy at the expense of durability. Since my wife primarily drives the MDX, I went with the more comfortable option (along with other reasons).Is neosupreme material more durable than cordura
This is a good question. I was going to suggest asking the same (but you already asked lol) because almost all the cordura covers look really boxy with ripples on edges and corners. But they are really durable when used for kids and pets. Then i realized he has neosupreme.Emmet how is the fit if these covers on the seat .
Are they tight fit or loose
