Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2015 Honda Accord Owner Comments

The seats, in particular the head restraints (headrests), are of a faulty design in that they are tilted too far forward for any kind of comfort and are not adjustable. Only if one drives while in a semi-reclined position is the headrest tolerable. Compared to a safer, more vertical driving position, this semi-reclined (approx 25 degrees from vertical) driving position hinders one's alertness and ability to see and react to all traffic situations; therefore this lack of headrest tilt or fore/aft adjustment is a serious safety issue for those people not ideally fitting the seat as designed. I have confirmed that my car is as it was designed and because I bought it new, I know it has not been altered at all. This type of maladjustment is not readily recognizable in a brief test drive.

Purchased car in may of 2015. Went on a 10 hour trip after owning 2 weeks, after a few hours it became obvious that it was impossible to attain a comfortable driving position. Seats pull back and neck, legs go to sleep. Upon arriving at our destination both drivers had headache and sore back and legs. Recently had car in shop for minor body shop repairs and was provided a rental car, Dodge challenger, what a relief ! great seats. Have had the car back now for 3 days and immediately felt back discomfort seriously considering getting rid of this car after eight months of misery! major disappointment!

The 2015 Honda Accord driver and shotgun-passenger seats are extremely uncomfortable, especially the lack of lumbar support and the presence of terribly angled/designed headrests. After the driving the car for no more than 45 minutes, you will find that: 1. your left leg is sleeping 2. your neck and back are aching 3. your head is angled forward in an abnormal fashion. This needs to be investigated. See further complaints at:

The headrest slants forward pushing the head out of line with the back. This causes neck pain. The headrest will adjust up and down only. After driving long distance your neck is in pain.

The contact owns a 2015 Honda Accord. While driving 60 mph, the contact felt numbness on the right foot due to the design of the front driver seat. The failure recurred on numerous occasions. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 130.

Whereas this does not serve as an immediate threat to life or limb, as a rn of 10 years, I do feel it needs attention from NHTSA for long-term health hazards. The seat in this vehicle, which I have owned for 2 days, is not only uncomfortable, it causes severe left leg numbness, pain, tingling, burning that doesn't resolve when exiting the vehicle. This is a step above discomfort, it is a long-term, possibly short-term health hazard, as I don't know that I could handle another 1 hr drive in the vehicle and still walk when getting out of the vehicle. Being able to walk and having intact neurovascular status in lower extremities is quite important and this vehicle compromises that significantly. As said, I understand there is a wide gap between ergonomics and safety concerns. I truly feel that, from a medical standpoint, Honda has bridged this gap and created a true safety hazard with the design of these seats. I will be relentlessly searching for a solution in the meantime, but my aching butt and numb leg are crying for help from Honda and NHTSA.

  • 310 miles
The automatic driver's seat in my new 2015 Accord sport only moves forward and back, up and down (the entire seat) and lumbar adjustment. My issue however is that the seat bottom where it meets the seat back is substantially lower than the front of the seat bottom and therefore cuts off the circulation under my legs no matter how low or high I adjust the seat since it only either rises or lowers the entire seat. An hour is about all I can handle sitting in these seats without feeling the risk of blood clots due to lack of circulation to my lower legs. Now I see all these complaints from shorter drivers starting years ago which indicates that Honda has known about the issue for years and done nothing.
