2009 Honda Fit Sport: Great For Picking up Dresses

February 27, 2009

Laundry in the 2009 Honda Fit Sport

I don't frequent dry cleaners. Partly because I don't wear things nice enough to dry clean and partly because I'm too lazy/cheap to venture to a dry cleaners. An uncontrollable urge to ride on the wicked cool hanging conveyor belt is another reason. But I went to the dry cleaners yesterday and I was driving the 2009 Honda Fit..

When I got back with my hands full of hangers, I discovered the Fit's left rear seat bottom was flipped up. I had often extolled the virtues of this feature, but I realized another use last night. As the picture shows, I could hang all those shirts, jackets and dresses up on the oh schmidt handle without them getting crunkled up on the seat bottom. And no, those aren't my dresses. Not that there's anything wrong with a dude who has dresses, but they're not mine. Where was I?

Oh yeah, the Honda Fit is really good at picking up dry cleaning. How's that for real-world, affordable car impressions?
