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.

The head restraints for the front seats had to be removed as they caused both the driver and passengers significant neck pain. They forced our heads down into our chests. I continue to look for alternate/replacement head restraints that are more upright.

The contact owns a 2010 Honda Accord. The contact stated that she had a problem with the head restraint. The head restraint pushed the top of her head three inches from the upright position and made it difficult to see the roadway when driving. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer who informed her that was the design and they could not repair it. The vehicle was not repaired; the dealer only replaced the head restraint with one from another vehicle. The manufacturer was contacted and a complaint was filed. The failure mileage was 188.
