Thirdly, the Honda Fit's seats are apparently lightly upholstered marble benches. Seriously, I have never been in a car that gave me as much seat related discomfort.This brings up a good point about test drives: How can you tell if the seat is going to bother the hell out of you?
We had tested a few Ford Focuseseses and knew immediately we could never buy the thing -- it hurt to drive. Oh, it handled well and the seats were decent, but the accelerator just didn't mesh with our leg and foot combo. Pain!
When you go to test a car, you are usually limited to a certain amount of time and, while not expressly said, miles. So how can you test a car to see if it will really work for you? How can you tell if a seat is made of "upholstered marble" if you can't take it on a five hour trip yourself?
Anyone have any tips to share?
Oh we snagged that photo but good! It's from Thenys' group of snaps. We win!
