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.

Engine light came on; car chugged; called aaa and had it towed for the third time to Honda. A switch, oil pressure rocker arm pressure switch (rear) was replaced. This is the third time that a part failure has caused oil pressure/engine problems and left me stranded out of town.

Engine light came on while driving on the interstate. Car chugged and threatened to cut off. I miraculously got it into the Honda dealership in orlando. Had to leave it, get rental to get home and go back for it 4 days later. Defective front spool valve assembly was found to be binding/sticking causing engine to misfire.

There is a recall for 2010 Honda Accord re engine stalling while driving. Before I found out about the recall, I experienced my vehicle stalling twice on two seperate occasions and I immediately took it to Honda dealership, and they said they could not duplicate the problem so there was nothing they could do. Now that I am aware of the recall, I called Honda and they said my VIN doesnt apply. Which puzzles me when I experienced the same issues.
