Drivers seatback
By ronnied on


2011 Honda CR-V EX-L 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


I have had my CR-V EX-L with leather seats for 4 months and I still can't get comfortable in the drivers seat. The seatback is too narrow and the side airbag is costantly digging into my ribs. I have tried moving the seat position every way I can but I still can't find a position where my back is not on the side of the seat. I have not heard of anyone else complaining about this. I am 5'8" and 195lbs. I would like to know if anyone else has this problem. Please let me know if it is just me or is it a real problem. Thanks.

Worst Features

Make the drivers seat wider in the seat and the back

I have a 2009 CRV LX, and long car rides are uncomfortable. Honda's seats lack sufficient cushioning.
