I'd like to order the OEM 3rd row seat cover but the only one available says 2008-2010 only. I have an '07 van.

Were there any significant differences in the third row configurations between '07 and '08?

Couldn't find anything searching.

Thanks.

Yes there were actually quite a few. First of all, if you have a gray interior, there was a slight change in the shade of gray used. It is not usually all that noticeable until you put the new, right next to the old. I have an olive interior, so I didn't follow the gray interior switch all that closely to say what year it happened, but I know the older models had a little more of a bluer tone to them.

Next, in 2007, the backing of the third row became cloth. I know that in 2005 & 2006, the seat was leather and I also know that in 2008, 2009, & 2010, the seat was vinyl. I remember discussing it on here, but I can't say I remember ever coming to a complete decision as to whether the 2007 had a leather seat with fabric backing, or switched to vinyl and fabric completely. I do believe however that it was not until 2008 that Honda started printing "1st and 2nd row" next to the leather trimmed interior in the brochures. I don't believe that Black, Olive, or Ivory had any shade changes, but I have never looked into this fact and they very well could have.

What color is your Ody?

Thanks!

Blue with grey interior.

The OEM cover is black neoprene so the colors don't really matter. I was more concerned about fit. Did they move headrests or change the shape of anything? Doesn't sound like it. I doubt the texture or material of the backing would affect fit significantly. I think the seat is pleather (vinyl) (EX-L) with a carpet type back.
