We bought the Honda accord knowing that its reliability and quality build would not let us down. We commute 180 miles daily, to and from, all highway miles. In the first year we put 50K on the vehicle with zero issues.
The vehicle gets great gas mileage as advertised. The down fall....Not only are the seats hard, they have a c type curve design with no lumbar adjustment. For shorter individuals as my wife, the head rest would constantly keep her head leaned forward. She eventually began suffer from back and neck pain. At this point we decided get rid of the vehicle. Other than that, a great vehicle.

You are incorrect about the EX sedan driver's seat:
It has power lumbar adjust in its 10-way adjustable seat.
No seat will fit everyone, and I don't think there will be many complaints with this generation's driver's seat as was with the last generation.
