ANNOUNCEMENT: The Car Book 2018 is now online!

Ratings on over 1,000 new & used models going back 5 years, from the Center from Auto Safety. Learn more about The Car Book 2018 here. 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 "never noticed this during the test drive." Unfortunately for unwary buyers, the seat pain is noticeable after 15-20 minutes.

2011 Honda Accord Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 292011


  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,600 miles


I (after being at the dealership for 5 hours) was talked into a lease. I leased a 2011 Honda accord. As I was driving the car, I noticed the car idled very high. on the RPM's it was a 1.5 when I started it up. Then would drop down to 1. I actually drove the car through a parking lot without ever putting my foot on the gas. Took it to the dealership and they said they couldn't do anything about the idling. So I am constantly braking. The next thing I know the brakes are probably going to go. Is it true there is nothing they can do???
