Notes: The 2010 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.

Complainant was driving a 2010 Honda Accord on interstate highway, traveling at approximately 65 to 70 mph when original equipment sun roof shattered with a very loud burst. Complainant did not witness any object hitting sun roof, nor did sun roof have prior damage at the time of the incident. The shattered glass from sun roof began to enter the passenger compartment, landing on driver and occupant in front passenger seat.

We were driving on a empty street at 35 mph about 88 degrees and sun the shining and no pedestrians around. We heard a loud bang and looked for some indication or more noise. Nothing except the sunroof had shattered with the center hole bulging out. We were lucky the shade was closed or everyone could have been covered in fine glass shards. I hope Honda covers this because in my professional opinion it was not caused by an exterior impact.

The moonroof glass on my 2010 Honda Accord spontaneously exploded while I was driving down the freeway. Nothing hit it, there was no wind or unusual condition of any kind. One moment, normal driving, then a sound like a big firecracker exploding in the car, then I looked up and about one quarter of the glass was gone out of the center, the rest was shattered into a million pieces but still hanging in place. More glass has broken loose and fallen down and the hole grown bigger over the past day. Though most of the glass broke into safety glass-like chunks, there were some fine slivers in the passenger area that were sharp and difficult to clean up.

The contact owns a 2010 Honda Accord. While driving at 50 mph, the sunroof suddenly broke causing glass to fall inside the vehicle and cut the contact on the shoulder. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership for glass replacement and the dealer stated that they had never seen such a failure before. The current and failure mileages were approximately 400.

My family and I were riding down the interstate in our new Honda 2010 Accord. My 2 daughters were looking though the moonroof at the plane flying above. All of a sudden, a hold blew out of the moonroof. The glass blew out--not in. Nothing hit the glass.
