I live about 1 1/2 hours from Myrtle Beach S.C. Took my Accord there for a business meeting. Felt like I rode in a freakin go cart. The seats in these things are horrible if you are going to be in them for more than 30 minutes. I wonder if I can have someone replace the foam in them? I could care less about the heated seats option, just something more comfortable. Any suggestions from anyone. How did you make your park bench more comfortable?

ANY top notch upholstery shop can make the seat configure to you. Plan on spending some bucks.

remember, supportive/stiff seats are much better for your posture. i wouldnt want to sit in regular soft seats that resemble a home sofa in my car.

Made several 2+ hour drives in mine so far, love the way the seats contour to my back, and the firmness is great.

Have you given yourself time to get used to the seats, and did you sit in them with relatively good posture? Those two items can make a world of difference.

Drove 3.5 to VA Beach without a glitch, seats were fine. Maybe my backfat helped?:nuts:

I also think these seats are horrible, and I had my car already for 2+ years.

I'm 6'3" 225 and as far as the lumbar support and all goes thats fine. It just the hardness of the seats. I like good support but the firmness of the seats is like sitting on a park bench. I also have a Ford Expedition with leather and I have taken trips 10+ hours with just a few rest area stops and I was fine. I guess I just need to get used to the stiff seats. If not I will look around for maybe a gel seat cushion or something. Hey...thanks for all of the replies. Other than the comfort I like the car alot.

Oh man, I used to have a Ford Explorer with leather seats, those things were like a couch! I can definitely see where you are coming from. It's all what you are used to.
