2009 Honda Fit Sport: Easy Loader for Easy Rider
July 30, 2009
Although this doesn't qualify for a "Will it fit inside the Fit?" entry, it does show how the small Honda can make potentially awkward and back-straining tasks much less of a hassle. I recently had to transport new tires along with the wheels/old tires for my motorcycle to the shop to have them mounted.
With the Fit's rear seat flipped down, I could either slide them in through the hatch or the side doors. I tried both methods and they were both easy.
Had I just a subcompact sedan, I might've fit either the new tires or the wheels/tires in the trunk, but probably not both. It would've involved wrestling the buggers both into the trunk and the rear seat area, possibly aggravating my lower back and then requiring copious applications of Ben Gay.
Thanks to the cargo-friendly, hatchback Fit, my part of the office will not be filled with the scent of menthol and the wrinkled noses of my colleagues.
