This guide demonstrates how to fix minor cracks in the leather seats of your Honda Accord EXL.

Leather often dries out and cracks over time, and will happen more quickly if your vehicle is often left outside in elevated temperatures for an extended amount of time, particularly in dry environments. When leather cracks, it is the result of microscopic changes in the material; leather is made of countless, tiny interwoven fibers packed tightly together, with denser connected fibers near the surface. Eventually, these fibers can dry out, weakening the fibers and resulting in chafing, cracking, and a worn appearance.

To help prevent future damage, regularly apply leather conditioner and keep your leather seats out of direct sunlight as much as possible.
