    Well I am quite tall and am gonna be prone to back problems, so I have to be careful what type of seat I sit in.

    Metro were the worst, Corsa seats also kill, my Escort ones are bad, I have had to get one of those back things from Halfords!

    My friends BMW seats are niiccee

    Worst - Old type Scoda Fabia - you sit BOLT UPRIGHT in the front, there rock solid and really uncomfy ... I've been for like a 4 mile journey in one and was allready getting back ache, lol!

    Best - Prob custom made seats for a GTO I've been in ... you just slide in and are held in just the right position - not been for a long drive in it yet so I don't know what its like long term but my dad says its good!

    Worst = new shape Renault Clio. They seem to have been designed for obese people. Way too wide.

    That's strange, I find the seats in my 99 Accord really comfortable, one of the reasons I bought it. Have done many a 4hr + trek across the country in it. I suppose everyones backs are differnt shapes. I would say Volvo are best though.

    Just out of interest what Corsa were they? Only I found that the newest models are pretty nice seat wise.

    I agree on the escort whole-heartedly, was best thing that happened to me when someone knicked that car

    I have to say the most comfortable so far are the seats in my Citroen C3, nice

    worst - pug 307 - can't put my finger on it, but the driving position is so, sooo wrong. feels like you're genna fall off or summit - truly wierd.

    best - the roadster of course - pedals just right for heel and toe action, supportive leather seats, short-throw shift just where your left hand falls off the perfectly sited momo leather wheel... heaven!

    /i'll get my goat

    Yeah... but the front seats are none too comfy either are they?

    my volvos seats are VERY good for a cheapish (origionally) old car. mind you, volvo seats have apparently always been good for safety as well as comfort (currently 2nd best seat availible for wiplash protection)

    I'm also surprised you didn't like the Accord TiG. I just drove my father-in-law's 96P Accord to France on a 200+ mile booze cruise and found it was pretty nice, if a bit ponderous compared to my normal ride.

    I don't tend to get uncomfortable in cars very easily, but the back seat of a late 80s Nissan Sunny Coupe is pretty poor, there's nowhere near enough headroom for me at 5'10" and you keep hitting your head. A ride in the boot of a friend's Nissan Micra was even worse, but I don't think that counts.

    I sit quite upright, which i think was the problem, the honda seats are just too laid back imo.
