2009 Honda Fit: Another Day in the Life of the Edmunds.com Truckster
December 17, 2009
Over the weekend, I drove our 2009 Honda Fit to a toystore to buy a 20-inch bicycle for a 10-year-old. I purchased the bike unassembled and needed to load the box into the car.
Because the bike's manufacturer, Huffy, admonishes against laying the box flat, I had to find a way to keep it upright -- no easy task with the way I drive the subcompacts. Folding the "60" side of the rear seat flat accomplished this task beautifully. We wedged the box in, and it didn't budge an inch during 300 miles of driving over the next three days.
