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.

Purchased 2010 Honda Accord March 29, 2010. Within 2 weeks a knocking or popping noise started from the front end. Progressively got worse. So loud that I thought the tires were about to fall off. After 5 trips to the dealership I was finally told that it was the ball joints, both left and right on the front end. Three of the 5 trips was told that the noise could not be re-emulated, and nothing was done. The second trip in, the noise was heard by a technician and was told that "a few bolts were loose on the sway bar". the noise came back within 2 days. Finally came in and requested a manager to drive the car to hear the noise, that is when ball joints were ordered and replaced the following week. Through all of this time I was told the vehicle was completely safe and nothing was wrong with it!

Purchase a 2010 Honda Accord on 5/24/10 - since the purchase the car has been back to the dealer 3 times for "popping/knocking" on the front driver side. First I was told there was a loose bolt on the suspension, the second time I was told it was again loose bolts on the suspension - car is currently at the dealer for third time awaiting response. The noise is extremely loud and distracting - terrified that the tires will fall off when driving. Dealer does not seemed concerned.
