I've noticed some discussion on this topic, but it seems to have been a
I have a 2004 Accord EX coupe V6MT. I previously owned a 2003 Accord
EX coupe V6Auto.
In both cars I have experienced a problem with the drivers seat moving
ever so slightly while stopping, starting, or turning. I traded in my
2003 Accord, because Honda did not want to fix the seat, so i figured,
I'd get a new one and all would be fine. This was not the case.
I have taken my Honda Accord to 3 different dealers. Mahway, NJ;
Paramus, NJ; and Nanuet, NY. All three have told me that the drivers
seat moving is "Normal Operation". Basically, the service technician
at the Nanuet, NY service department told me that if he swaped out the
seat rails, that the parts would cost $1,000 and labor would be 6
hours. He also mentioned that the dealership would probably not recoup
the money because Honda does not recognized the problem with the seat
I also had previously contacted Honda of America and talked to customer
service representitive. He was very unhelpful, and told me that he
couldn't find anything in his system on this subject. He also asked me
if I "TEST DROVE" the car. I said, of course i test drove it, but the
seat in that car didn't move when i drove.
To me, this is not only a quality control issue, but a saftey issue.
At this point, i will most likely be selling or trading in my Accord
for a better built Toyota or Nissan. It's unfortunate that a car that
would be fun to drive, becomes something I dread on getting into
If anyone is willing to sign and send a peition together please let me
know. I'd be willing to put a petition and a letter together.
