I have been a fan of Honda since my first Accord. I had wanted a Fit since they first started being sold in the US. I have been driving it for a month and a half. I have already had to replace the battery. That said the car is exactly what you would expect from a compact economy car. The ride is comfortable but the road noise is noticeable as with most Hondas. The addition of the arm rest on the drivers seat is a small but great addition. The cabin space is enormous given how small the car is. There are few blind spots, the steering is responsive, and the gas mileage is as advertised (I am averaging 33 mpg in the city). There is no internal release for the hatchback, it does not have an internal release for gas cover, and the spare wheel cover is a bit flimsy. Overall I am very happy with the car and would highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a small vehicle.
2009 Honda Fit - Great Value for Your Money
2009 Honda FitShelley - Graham, NC11/23/2010
I purchased a used 2009 Honda Fit in October, 2010. After driving a Dodge Grand Caravan for years, the biggest change for me was getting used to the smaller size of the vehicle and the lesser amount of horse power. However, I have been pleasantly surprised by just how much stuff I can get in this little car! My children's (3) bookbags or luggage "Fit" comfortably in the rear cargo space and everyone still has ample leg room. The "get up and go" is lacking though. As a frequent interstate driver, being able to get up to 70 MPH quickly is not an easy task. But on the flip side, I am loving the 30+ MPG that I'm getting (note: the digital readout is not a true indicator as to the actual gas mileage).
Overall the Honda Fit is a great value for your money and with Honda's reputation, I'm planning on driving this vehicle for many, many more years!
What a nice little package!
2009 Honda FitSmart Move - Wisconsin05/24/2011
From a Grand Caravan to the Honda Fit I have to say what a pleasant surprise! So much fun to drive. Very tight and responsive! Lumbar support in the seat makes it a comfortable ride. Compared to the minivan it is rough in that I can feel all the bumps in the road but that was expected. Also had to get used to the gas peddle, had to floor it to get the minivan to move but a little pressure goes a long way with this car - sorry for the rocky test drive, sales associate! This little 4 cylinder moves! I do not have to mention gas mileage, right? This was the reason for the switch for me and then I was mourning the loss of space but with all the ways the seats can lift and flatten, I can pack it in. It is not just a token back seat, it fits my young teenagers comfortably and then there is a 3rd seat belt back there... Honda's hold their value for resale but I am expecting my young teens to grow into this ride and drive it to it's death! Which I heard can be 200,000 miles. All in all - love it!
