CARS.COM — Often overlooked in the typical test drive is how the seats feel because any annoyances will only get magnified after spending more time behind the wheel. One of our consumer reviewers loves a lot about the 2016 Honda Fit but found the driver’s seat not such a good fit for a long relationship.

Emu from Los Angeles writes:

“I’d read so many positive reviews about the Fit that I practically tuned everything out during the test drive, thinking this is the “must have” car for practicality, comfort and styling. I am impressed with the interior features, Bluetooth, terrific standard styling of extras in steering wheel, the wonderful visibility and cargo space is good. The design is very masculine, including some silver-framed vents which look downright cheesy. The armrests are awful. There are really none on the right side as it’s much too low. The seat configuration is not wholly comfortable, especially the head rest, and lastly, the ride is rather bumpy. … Honda Fit, you are quite attractive but are not built for real comfort on the long haul.”
