NEX 5r poor AF accuracy, solutions?

I am disappointed by the AF performance in certain condition that seem to be should be easy to AF.

Are there certain settings that you guys suggest to improve this? Not talking about speed but accuracy.

Also sometimes it's hard to tell if something is on focus from the LCD because it is only slightly out of focus, for example this bicycle shot. How can the camera possibly miss this shot with the subject in the center frame taking up almost all the frame? It looks like the camera is focusing on nothing. At least my LX3 gave me a warning that it could not focus but this camera just goes ahead with a completely out of focus picture.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3
