I am a bass player with 20 years of semi-professional experience. I came to the Bolt from a Mazda Protege, a small car, but with sufficient room in the passenger seat to haul my bass safely: you lower the seat back all the way and the bass reclines in the seat with the seat belt fastened around it. In the Bolt, the cut of the dashboard prevents the bass from using the under dash space, the seat is too narrow so that the seat belt, though fully extended, does not reach the clasp, and the door will not close unless the bass is resting on the gear shift making it unsafe to drive. I am forced to tie the seat belt onto one of the handles on the bass case but it twists laterally when I turn. Of course, I can lower the back seat backs and put it through the rear hatch but then the scroll and neck must extend between the front seats and the scroll rests very near the shift. I realize that this is of no interest to anyone but bass players, but I thought my colleagues might wish to know.
