It's small and handles well in city traffic, but comfortable and can fit a lot inside. Decent acceleration for such a small cheap car. Excellent fuel efficiency. The inside features all seem intuitively logical to me so it's a really easy car to drive.
This car suited my needs perfectly. I needed a fuel efficient car that was also fun to drive. I liked the configuration of the cargo space for when I transport my bike inside the vehicle.
I used to drive an Acura Integra GS-R, and while this has no where near the power, it does feel like it shares "DNA". It is "zippy" and handles great. However it does feel under-powered and twitchy on the interstates.
During the winter I mount Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2s all around (I bought an extra set of wheels) and with those on the car it handles great in the snow. Almost more fun to drive in the snow than the AWD Outback I traded in.
Just kinda average....
2012 Honda FitMari C - Orlando, FL02/05/2016
it's not so much I wouldn't recommend it, there's not a 'maybe' option here, I just wouldn't whole-heartedly recommend it - it depends on what someone is looking for in a car, a decent basic reliable vanilla car, sure, although compared to Honda's I've owned in the past, not so much. I was expecting much better gas mileage than what I've been getting. I'll keep this car until I can afford to trade it in for something else because it is reliable, afterall it is a Honda.
