#210 of 211 Re: Good news on 2013 Accord seats! [personatech]

Bad news on the seats. I test drove the LX (base model) today. Handling, ride, new features were great! The drivers seat was downright painful after only 5 minutes. No back support, just flat. Seat was the same way. It was bench flat, not comfortable. I didn't try the motorized seats as they cost $4000 extra and come with the "upgraded" models. The salesman said Honda made a deliberate effort to keep the price down and made several compromises to do so. What a pity. I have owned several Hondas and am ready to purchase again. The LX is unacceptable because of the seat. The EX is unacceptable because of the increase in price. I can't say the Camry or Altima are perfect, but they get more fundamental things right.
#211 of 211 No more Hondas for us!

After owning seven (7) Hondas, we finally decided we had had enough of uncomfortable seats and excessive road/wind noise. In the last nine months, we traded both of our 2010 Hondas (Accord EX-L V6 and a Ridgeline RTL) for two 2008 Lexus vehicles, a ES350 sedan and a GX470 SUV. We couldn't be happier! Both Lexus are extremely quiet and MUCH more comfortable on long road trips than any Honda we have ever owned. Plus, the sound systems and luxury ammenities are vastly improved over Honda's offerings. The only thing we miss is the innovative storage bins and the in-the-bed trunk that the Ridgeline has. The GX470 has minimal storage space and a poorly designed console.
