I’ve owned my 2015 EX since it was new, and had virtually zero problems.
Still loving it!!
Big concern had been the light grey interior and door panels, as 4 years had taken their toll, daughter got some blood stains on it from a wipe out, food here, mud there
So I broke down and bought a Bissel spot clean professional upholstery vacuum.
Wife loves it to do things like clean furniture, and I just did the HRV, the cloth almost looks like new.
I’m sure there are many good brands, this was a top rated.
Nice part is watching the water get sucked up, I think the passenger seat took 8 passes till the water was looking clean and not mud sludge

always use cold water for blood stains. Alcohol for ink stains...otherwise, soap works well. How does it look?
The bissel asked for hot water and it’s own cleaner, so I just followed directions. You are right with blood I’ve read cold is better, but probably after drying for the last 2 years on the back seat didn’t make much difference.
Anyway the 4 year old cloth interior looks like brand new, so I’ld recommend this for anyone.

Water bottle with oxy clean or water bottle with 8oz peroxide and 1 spoon of baking soda. I would try light mixtures with water before full strength, consider scotch guard when done. Be careful with steam cleaners they can cause fading.
