I bought my Fit new in May 2006 and haven't had any mechanical problems. I've had to replace tires and brakes---the usual wear and tear items. My Fit now has 81,000 miles on it, and never once has my Fit been to the repair shop for a problem. It's very reliable and fun to drive. I would definitely consider buying another Fit when the time comes for a new vehicle.
2007 Honda FitHard Head - Mountain Maryland08/07/2010
We are glad to have made the choice to Honda. We have been very impressed with this sporty car in a small body. The Fit has a surprising amount of room and lots of pep. Its is great fun to drive. Ergonomics is very good. Although the sitting position is low, visibility instills confidence. The only negative so far is the interior quality. The door handle cover is cheaply made and does not stay connected to the door. The engine and the transmission seem solid. Its handling is fun. Overall, we are delighted with the common sense of the car's design. Maybe it has German roots?
too many problems
2007 Honda Fitfinerbiner - Chicago04/18/2012
The car has great space, is sporty to drive and gets reasonable gas milage.
The low profile sport tires are expensive and need replacing every other time you hit a pothole. I live in Chicago, so this is often and expensive.
The car is underpowered. If you are on the expressway on a windy day you had better be driving with the wind or the car will have trouble maintaining anything over 65mph.
A couple little changes would make this a great 2nd car.
