Honda Fit -- Through Thick and Thin
January 16, 2007
I love the Honda Fit. As I've said before, it's quick, kinda cool looking, carries plenty of gear via its fold-flat seats, and sporty. And cheap. Everything it sets out to do...
But as I said, it's very inexpensive, and for good reason. It's not exactly a '56 Chevy Bel-Air. It's modern and very thin. I'm not decrying the build quality, but the below shot is of the open rear hatch.
My fingers are grasping the outside steel edge. Paper-thin. Doesn't rattle, doesn't feel like a death trap. But if you're wondering how Honda's engineers saved money in its development, that's one clue.
