I just bought my E and I've found (too late) that the ride is so bouncy that I get a bit motion sick while driving or riding in it especially in the back seats (riding). It feels like the shocks aren't damping the springs enough. When we go over bumps at night you can see the effect by watching the light cast by the headlights bounce up and down 2 or 3 times meaning the chassis is bouncing not just the seats (bushing issue).

I love the E and am willing to upgrade the shocks if need be. Honda tells me they've heard the complaint before but they say "it was designed to do that" which I find doubtful. I'd like to hear one of their engineers say THAT with a straight face.

Of the 14 cars I've owned (be it miata, chevette, BMW or sta'-wag) I've NEVER experienced anything like this. Please help!
