Great MPG, great little car
I bought this car new and drove it for 13 years and 228,000 miles. Great commuter car, and it fit me just fine (I'm 6'3"). The seating flexibility was awesome. I sold the car to a coworker. The only two complaints I ever had was that the radio face burned in the sun and was unreadable, and Honda wouldn't work with me on the terrible paint fade; some panels were like new, and some were faded from original red to a hue of pink or white.
Most Reliable Car I have ever owned
The car has plenty of room and it meets all my needs. Great on gas with an average 30 mpg on the city and 35 highway.
From Civic to Fit
I've had Honda Civics and have loved them. When I needed a new car, I found this used Honda Fit which had low mileage and was selling for a very fair price so I couldn't pass it up. I am so glad I got this car! It is very comfortable and feels very safe. It is very roomy and handles very well. I am very happy with this car!
Fit 2007 192k miles, 25 mpg! Very reliable. Quick.
Change the trans oil at 70k. Regular oil changes every 3k miles. Honda oil is preferred. This little sports car will go 300k lifetime. V-tech engine preferred. Lift up back seats. SUV space. Great ac. Not good going uphill. Safe to buy used.
owned it 11yrs
I love the car taken it on MANY road trips and all I've done is routine maintenance I refuse to get rid of it cause of how good its been she's not as comfortable as a luxury car but she's xxxx near close, a true drivers car with very little limitations for the price she had 7000 miles when I bought her and now she has 134,000 currently. I recommend the sport with dual clutch transmission for city a MUST MUST MUST buy
A very reliable car, just not super comfortable
The car has met my needs. It is fun to drive and excellent in snow. The legroom is good, with excellent headroom ( I am 6’-2” tall). However the steering wheel doesn’t adjust front to back. There is not a lot of leg support in the seats so not great for trips longer than 2 hours. The mechanical reliability has been excellent. The car was purchased with 37,000 miles on the odometer and is at 160,000 miles now with no major repairs required.
Best car that I have EVER bought.
This is, by far, the best car that I have ever bought. All aspects of this car excel in value. I cannot say just how wonderful this car has been for me. It is reliable and more than easy to own. I love it and plan to drive it as long as possible.
Will Buy Again
It is an economy car, so the ride is not the most comfortable. The interior space is impressive. The rear magic bench is amazing, though this year's (2007) design required removing the headrests to lay the back flat. Drove through the worst of two winters with this car and studless winter tires. I was taken out by neglect and 2inches of slush in the spring. Fuel economy is great, however, I drove it mercilessly so averaged 28mpg instead of 30 something. I have discovered that almost all 2007-8 models begin to leak water at three places. Look it up, it's a ~250 fix. No other notable problems in the 2 years I owned mine. I plan to buy a 2009 model in several weeks.
Most reliable car I ever owned
I purchased this car new, and had it for just shy of 11 years. We put 167,000 miles on it. It was a part of our family, and we loved it. It kept us safe, took us all over the country, and was filled with countless memories. Outside of regular maintenance, we had to do very little to keep this wonderful car running. A new clutch and fuel pump in the 150,000-160,000 mile range. We purchased this as a couple, and ultimately just outgrew the wonderful Fit. You were a great car, and will be dearly missed. What a fun gas sipper to drive!
Great first car for kid
Easy to use, great mileage, and reliable. It is the perfect first car for a high school or college kid. Rear seats fold different ways to make a huge storage space for a car of this size.
