My butt is German, it seems

A friend asked me to come along while she test-drove a few cars yesterday. Really didn't want to, since any opinion I gave (and I'm an opinionated little ...) would probably be wrong for her.

We tried a Camry, a Prius C, a Fit, an Accord, a Golf, and a Jetta. I can honestly say that the Golf and Jetta had far more comfortable seats and general driving positions (for me at least) than the other four cars.

I wasn't even thinking about seating, but after the other four cars, sitting in the VW's made me think -- "these seats just feel correct." It felt like the right parts of the back were supported, and (unlike the other cars) the seats weren't too wide but rather held your back in place.

And I did ask to test an FR-S while she went to drive the Camry That was an awesome little car!

Your butt may be more Mexican than German.

Of the cars mentioned, I think I'd take the FR-S.
Anyone who thinks a 300D is fast drives too slow.
