2009 Honda Fit Sport: Ergonomic Error

September 23, 2009

Hondas are usually ergonomic successes -- the various controls are usually intuitive in operation and right about where you'd expect them to be. The trip computer in our Fit, however, doesn't follow that design dictum.

Located right near the speedo like a mechanical trip meter's reset button, the Fit's button must be accessed either through or around the steering wheel. Awkward either way and not a good idea if you want to check on your fuel economy or other info while driving. Other car makers mount this button either on the side of the instrument binnacle (Nissan) or on the center stack (Ford), both of which are much more user-friendly than the Fit's fussy location.
