2007 Honda Fit Long-Term Road Test

Honda Fit: Slip sliding away

June 18, 2007

File this under "Small peeves big enough to blog about": Our Fit has floor mats that don't like to stay in place. Taking a closer look, I noticed the two holes in the mat and thought "Oh, just like my friends '03 Miata, these holes must lock onto a couple of hooks in the carpet.

Only problem is, there are no hooks. Holes in the mats, but no hooks to secure them to the carpet. Turns out there are supposed to be hooks included with the mats, that you install yourself. We don't have them so we called the local Honda dealer who informed us we can order them and that that the instructions to install them are four pages long.

Of course, this raises a few questions: 1) Why weren't the hooks installed by the dealer? 2) If it's a DIY deal, why didn't we get the hooks? When we get to the bottom of this, we'll be sure to let you know. BTW, anybody out there in blogger land experience this too?
