CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2011 Honda Accord has a solid reputation (so far), with one very significant flaw: uncomfortable seats.

Owners have consistently reported uncomfortable seats with the entire 8th generation (2008-2012) of Honda Accords. Complaints range from back pain to leg circulation problems due to bad lumbar support, cushioning, & seat angle. Complaints aren't limited to only a certain body type -- the seat comfort problems are from a wide spectrum of owner height & weight.

The common theme we hear is "we never noticed this during the test drive." Unfortunately for unwary buyers, the seat pain is noticeable after 15-20 minutes.

"takata recall"---> I received a recall notice about my air bags about 1 month ago. My husband has called gwinnett place Honda to find out about parts, where to take the car, and how to go about getting a rental. They replied that we needed to call Honda automobile customer service for an authorization to get a rental. It has been 2 weeks and no one has called back. During all of this I have to drive this car to and from work with my kids. I also take several children to school along with mine so I have someone in the passenger front seat. I explained this to the customer service representative and all he could tell say that he could only put in a request for a rental. He could not tell me an estimated time to hear back from anyone or anything else I could do in the mean time. Honestly I am not made of money and this is a complete inconvenience. The fact that they do not seem to be the least bit concerned is very concerning to me. I just want to know what I should do.. I don't feel comfortable driving a car with an airbag that could go off at any time. Do I have to go out an rent my own car for an unspeakable amount of time... due to no one knowing when my car will be able to be serviced (they don't know when the parts will be available)

I contacted to Honda dealer near my place today regarding the recall for the airbag. They did not know when they will have the parts and refused to provide a rental car. Honda told me not to allow anyone seat on the passenger side when I asked them a temporary remedy because I do not want to risk any life of my family. It did not make sense that I can not take more than 4 people including myself.

Takata recall I have not received notice of the recall by mail because it was sent to and old address. I was made aware of the recall via the news. I am currently moving in a week to another state. The trip will be at least 3 days. I am also traveling with a passenger and my dog. I will also be taking most of my possessions with me. I am very nervous to take this trip knowing that something that has been fatal to people could possibly happen to any of us. Im aware of the rental cars being offered, however this is kind of a different situation considering I will need to have my car in the end. I have already paid rent and can not postpone this move. I called Honda and they will not help me. They do not have the parts to fix my car and said they are being sent but it could take up to 2 months to hear anything about them. What should I do? thank you!

Takata recall - I own 2 Honda that are both under recall at the same time for the same issues. I have requested a rental from Honda due to fear for my life and the life of my passengers. They told me to not let someone ride in the front passenger seat. Which means I can only Transport 4 people instead of 5 that the car is suppose to safely Transport. I bought this automobile to Transport 5 people safely. Honda is telling me I can't Transport 5 people safely until this is fixed. Honda needs to provide me with safe transportation for 5 people until they can fix this car to Transport 5 people safely. My compliant is Honda is not providing me with my car or another car to Transport 5 people safely which is what I purchased from them.
