This is no excuse for attacking everyone who dislikes something about the HRV or is having problems. Look at the complete "Dislikes about the Honda HRV, Let's hear it" thread. I found these few in 15 mins. I'm sure I can find a lot more if I spend longer looking.Probably more than anything else in a car, seat comfort is an individual matter. People's bodies are different, and what works for one person won't for another. This is the sort of thing that a prospective buyer should focus on during the test drive(s), but they usually aren't long enough. If HR-Vs weren't in such short supply, perhaps more dealers would be willing to provide a loaner for 24-48 hours, which is enough time to do a long drive and make an informed decision.
If it doesn't fit, it's not the right car for you. I didn't do a test drive, and while I found the driver's seat on the CX-3 slightly more comfortable than the HR-V, on balance the HR-V better met my overall needs. Raising the front about 8 mm improved comfort enough — for me — to be worth the $7 in parts and an hour of work required.
Not to mention the ridiculous threads he keeps starting. I'm not the only one who's has noticed them either.
Most of the things you listed are due to your own fault.
The 17's are just right in terms of fuel economy and looks. The bigger they are, the lower your mpg, and performance. But go all out. It's your car.
No we got a perfect HRV. You got a lemon car.
