2007 Honda Fit Long-Term Road Test

2007 Honda Fit Sport: My Unlovely Honda Hump

March 31, 2008

I don't know about you all, but I refuse to drive around by myself with the front passenger seat slid all the way forward. Whenever I see that someone's left the seat that way, I compulsively slide it back so that it's roughly parallel with the driver seat. So it was in our long-term Honda Fit when I brought it along to Joshua Tree National Park last week -- someone had left the passenger seat all the way up, so I promptly slid it back. Except this time I got a little more than I'd bargained for. In the name of Soichiro Honda, I exclaimed, what is THAT!

I'm taking suggestions. Meanwhile, browse onward for a few Joshua Tree pics. I averaged a little over 35 mpg for the trip, by the way -- mainly unimpeded highway driving, A/C blasting (to the extent that the Fit's apathetic A/C can be said to blast), with some stop-and-go mixed in.
