Notes: The 2011 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.

I contacted to Honda dealer near my place today regarding the recall for the airbag. They did not know when they will have the parts and refused to provide a rental car. Honda told me not to allow anyone seat on the passenger side when I asked them a temporary remedy because I do not want to risk any life of my family. It did not make sense that I can not take more than 4 people including myself.

While traveling on the highway, I noticed excessive vibration on braking. I took the car to the Honda dealer and was informed that the front rotors were warped. This was the second time I had this occurred in this car. At approximately 18,000 miles I had the same situation. Honda resurfaced the rotors and this problem disappeared. Honda is refusing to change the rotors. This is a safety and manufacturing defect that Honda should recall. Please attend to this matter urgently.

Brake rotors are warped and cause you to lose control in curves and wet or low traction conditions.

As I was completing a left hand turn, I applied pressure to the brake and my car began to accelerate despite my foot being firmly applied to the brake. I continued to maintain pressure to the brake yet the car continued to accelerate where I hit an embankment / tree, I steered the car back onto the road and turned off the ignition. I contacted Honda though was given a report indicating that there weren't any diagnostic codes & the Honda factory engineer drove the car 5 to 6 miles without acceleration issues. I'm greatly concerned because I drove the car for over 13,000 miles prior to this without having acceleration problems and I've read roughly 18 other complaints with the 2011 Accord on this site citing various acceleration problems! just seems to me there should be something more I should be able to do, but I can't afford to just walk away from the car!
