Driver side seat is cause my neck and back pain. In addition, not enough leg room for the left leg. It crammed in with little space. No back support low middle section of my back. I am only 5 7'. body paint is starting show spot of unclear clear coat. In addition, random nose coming from center console and parking bark lever wiggles. Parking lever does not feel tight, I can move it side to side. The issue with the seat was present during test drive. I noticed this issue after three month driving the car. I thought need time to adjust to the car

Both front headrests on our 2015 Honda Fit LX cvt are tilted forward so they, in turn, tilt our heads forward - this causes neck pain and the tendency to have too low of a line of sight, hence this is a safety risk - many cars have this defect but it is rare in cars that are designed for those who love to drive such as Porsche, corvette, ferrari, lamborghini, even F1 and indy cars - those manufacturers know that safety and performance demand a neutral driving position so have upright headrests - our first choice for a 4 door car this time was a Mazda 3 but its headrests were extreme - the Fit was the best of the cars on our list but it is turning out to be a "pain in the neck" - manufacturers should offer a choice of angle for the headrests (this angle and upright would cover it) - only those with kyphotic thoracic spines would find this car comfortable, and most people don't "Fit" that description - this may not be the place for it but we don't get more than 25 mpg city driving (epa rating is 33) - dealer denies a problem with that mileage

The driver and passenger seat of the Honda Fit is very uncomfortable. The seat forces the shoulders forward into a hunched position, just the neck out with the head restraint, and curves the back. I've had to flip the head restraint backward, add a pillow to my back, and I still aim to drive as little as possible. Combined with the low shocks, each bump or pothole reverberates throughout my body which isn't able to absorb the shock like it is supposed to. After only a month of driving it I began to experience neck pain that caused me to go to the doctor, then massage therapist. Currently due to the neck, back, and hip problems significantly from the car I am in constant, chronic pain which increases after just a few minutes in the car. I just finished 2 months of physical therapy and still have 2-3 massage therapist and chiropractor appointments a month, plus a doctor appointment to get out of the pain. The injury affects my work as well as time at home as I cannot sit or stand in most positions for periods of time longer than 30 minutes without increased pain. I had to cancel a business trip due to the pain and have seriously considered trading in the car to get a better seat.

The front seats are really uncomfortable. The head restraints on the front seats force our heads too far forwards, causing neck pains and sometimes neck aches or head aches. The front seats don't offer sufficient lumbar support. After 30-45 minutes of riding or driving, our lower backs start to hurt. This pain can last a while after exiting the vehicle. The front seat cushion cuts off circulation below the waist after 40-45 minutes of sitting in them. This numbs my legs, which can reduce reaction time in case I need to try to avoid an accident.
