I love having a hatchback, it's so easy to get things moved. My fit is so quiet sometimes I'm not sure if the remote starter even kicked in. I never thought I'd need the backup camera but it's so useful. Trying to back out into the street when you have an SUV on either side? Now you can!
2009 Honda Fit - great car
2009 Honda FitCody - San Diego, CA11/01/2011
So far, this car has been great! I bought it in September 2011, so it was already a few years old. I wanted a quality car that will last for a long time. Runs great, gets good mileage, and is very comfortable and spacious. The seats fold down very easily and I can fit my bike in with no problems. I drive mostly city streets (stop and go) so the mileage isn't as great as I hoped, but still at about 30 mpg for that type of driving.
I would definitely recommend this car. I looked into the 2007 and 2008 models, and apparently Honda made some improvements to the 2009 so consider that before you buy an older model.
2009 Honda Fit Sport
2009 Honda FitKDoggRock - Hampton, VA04/19/2011
Highs: Fit and finish of interior plastics and panels, very space efficient, highly practical, balanced and precise steering feel, good handling (for a rear torsion beam), smoothness of the engine at high revs, shifter precision of the 5-sp manual
Lows: down on torque, high revs on the freeway above 60 mph, engine is always screeming at high rpm in city traffic from red lights, goofy proportions due to maximized interior space, tach and speedo hard to read, esp the redline on the tach, torsion beam in rear, fuel economy less than larger Civic sedan, expensive compared to other subcompacts
