Angry 2017 Civic EX steering wheel defect

I just purchased a 2017 civic ex sedan last week. My first day of driving it, I noticed there is a hole behind the steering wheel. It feels as if someone picked at the leather with their nail. Itís annoying and I feel it everytime I drive. I took it in to service to get it fixed because itís a brand new car and it should not have that on there. After many hours later they told me that it was a problem with the manufacturing and apparently most if not all 2017 civics have this hole behind their steering wheel. I really feel like theyíre giving me BS because they donít want to take the time to replace the whole steering wheel. But if itís a brand new car and Iím paying for it, I feel like it shouldnít have this flaw that looks like someone clearly did on their own on a test drive or whatever.


Does any other 2017 civic owners have this flaw/defect behind their steering wheel?? Or is this Honda BSing me?

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

Walk into their showroom or new car lot and check a few for yourself
Leather trim packages--EXL and Touring-- and SI package all have different steering wheels from EX and LX trims.

If the exact same steering wheels all have it, it's considered normal.

Re: 2017 Civic EX steering wheel defect

I have the 2018 Civic EX hatchback, and I noticed the opposite: little bumps on the back of the steering wheel on both sides, at about the 10 and 2 positions. Felt like something was peeling off, so I took a look, and it seems like a manufacturing defect where it was cut off at those points a bit too roughly.
