Has Honda improved the Civic's seats?

Has Honda improved the driver's seat in the new civic saloon? Had a 2012 Civic that broke my back. Now have an Accord, but would love a new Civic Saloon if the seats are long enough to support my right leg.

Can I fit electric seats to my Focus?

Hi guys.

I have just purchased a set of black leather seats for my 2009 Ford Focus Zetec model. They came out of a Ford Focus Titanium of the same year. The driver's seat on the Titanium is electric and that in my Zetec is not! Will it be ok re working etc?

Many thanks. Peter.

What car would help my bad back?

I'm tall and have a bad back - can you suggest car types that have seat adjustment and plenty of head room to give some degree of elevation as well as support? I don't want to go over a 1,400cc engine.
