Default TSX Driver's Seat Moving

I've been having a problem with the driver's seat in my TSX moving forward
when performing hard or sudden braking. I took it to the dealer, and they
told me that they all do that. They suggested test driving another TSX to
prove their point, but I declined.

I contacted Client Services, and was told that the seats are designed this
way because of federal regulations requiring seat movement when the airbags
deploy. They suggested taking it to another dealer for a second opinion to
make sure nothing's wrong.

I checked NHTSA's website, and found that at least seven complaints have
been filed about this issue, and I added one for my car, too.

TSX owners: is everyone having this problem, or is it just me? Does anyone
know whether the federal government requires this kind of seat movement? I
haven't seen it on any of the other cars I've driven.

John.

Sounds like a load of bull. My 01 Prelude does not have that problem, nor
does the BMW 330 a friend of mine has. I can't imagine the Feds requiring
something like that.
