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.

Takata recall I can not drive my car as I was told not to have anyone in the passenger seat, I toke the car to have the airbag code scan and its showing open circuit in drivers side airbag, and also short in passenger side buckle. This car has never been in accident, not reason for all of these items to be wrong or failing. I want my car fixed now.

Seat belt warning light came on. I took the car to herb chambers, seekonk, MA, and they said it was the safety harness that needed replacement. They said that they would have to order the part as there was a shortage of these parts available. It would take a couple of weeks to get the part. It has been approximately three months and I still have not heard from them.
