Constant jittering except on the smoothest of roads

Review
Wow, what a disappointing ride after driving a smooth Prius! Except on the very best roads, the car is constantly jittering and taking road imperfections hard. Watch your right leg; it will be constantly moving. Why hasn't Honda corrected this problem? Why do so few comment on it? Don't know why I didn't pick this up on my test drive. Tire pressure at 32. Within two minutes of being in the car, my granddaughter asked me if I HAD test driven it. Love the design and interior, with the heated seats and Bluetooth, but the ride is the key to enjoyment, and the car fails on this test.
Favorite Features
Exterior design.
Suggested Improvements
Suspension improvement! Soften the ride, for heaven's sake!

are your tires at 32lbs? my dealer had them at 38! knock them down to bout 34 if so and your ride will smooth out

I brought mine down to 32 and the ride is a little better but not good. I assume the higher the pressure, the worse the ride.

I don't know your car like you do and i don't drive on your roads, but I don't experience a jittery ride like you describe. The ride is somewhat more taut than a non-touring or non-V Prius of course because those are pretty cushy rides. Accord Coupe has a firmer suspension, but I think it is pretty well suited to the type of car it is. Keep in mind the steering wheel will pick up road imperfections if the road is wavy. I find my coupe pretty darn smooth on decent highway roads although it is no luxury touring car.
