Interior feels roomier then the exterior would lead you to believe. Magic seats fold to accommodate a multitude of cargo. Mileage is exceptional on highway
Best car Ive ever owned!
I love my fit. It has plenty of room for my gadgets etc..the seats are comfortable for long drives. Plenty of power for this little car.
Really holds value
I've put 2 years in on a previously used manual 07 Fit that was kept in excellent shape by previous owner. I love this car. It's small for urban parking, good acceleration, does as good as any front wheel drive compact in the snow with decent tires. Mostly the mechanics of it are solid. I had to replace the manual clutch at 130k, but I wasn't the first driver. Manual is zippy, fun. My only complain is that 1st actually has a little too much power that the ride can't handle. Traffic jams are a little tedious. All other engine components are holding up exceptionally well over a decade, engine is sparkling, no leaks or grime. The exterior trim didn't age too well, especially the rubber, mostly sun damage. The driver pillar has a little blind-spot if you're petite, and the driver elbow rest could be better. Body and clear coat and uphostery are holding up way better than previous cars I've owned. Looks great detailed, no rust or clearcoat peels. It did have the honda airbag recall, which the dealership fixed in 2 hours for free. Other than a few quibbles, this is a really fun, reliable urban car. If you want a city car that can still load a lot of cargo, these are great. I steal all the tight parking spots.
Most reliable car and worth the money!
I was looking for a reliable car that was great on gas milage but still fun to drive. I bought into the Fit due to Honda's reliability and from word-of-mouth. The Fit is sleek and the 07's rear seats fold flat or the bottom can flip up in half so that you could fit something into the car that was tall. This is my first Honda and I definitely enjoy cruising around in my Fit.
Great Car But
Bought this with a salvage title,at an auto auction, it had 3 acid holes in it for $5300 eight years ago. For what I paid it has been more than a great car. Three flaws, 1) all the lock cores have failed but the one in the ignition, not sure if I will ever fix them. Talked to Honda and they claimed I did not maintain them correctly, what a bunch of bull do you graphite your locks every six months?, I did mention I buy cars at auctions right, just a little mechanical, only car that this has ever happened to, strongly suspect poor metal quality in lock cores as the problem. This issue is on the Honda Fit Forum. Currently just not locking car joys of a small town. 2) the ignition control packs, (modern spark plug wires) were bad, cost around $500.00 for parts to fix, although I changed out plugs at the same time, the Fit forum helped me diagnose this, never showed up on any diagnostics, but it got bad and they were expensive. 3) Seat is a killer, use a lumbar back support plus another a seat cushion and it is very comfortable. That said I have a very bad back, someone younger or with a normal back may not or even probably not be an issue at all. So for $5,300.00 for a car bought with 75,000 I am happy, if I had paid anything close to stealership pricing, well not so much. The car is fun to drive, not a 3 Series BMW, but it has a good power plant. Other than those issues just tires, fluids and maintenance. Has 165,000 on it and was hail damaged, so my actual end cost was about 3 grand. At that price I am very happy with it. The design is really well done, has a great little power plant with great gas mileage, overall good car. My sister bought one after I had mine for a few years.
Ten Years Old and Still Loving It
This car has everything- great fuel economy, sassy design, comfort and reliability. Easy to park and drive. I bought the Sport version so it has a great stereo, air conditioning and paddle shifters. I drive a lot because I live 24 km from the closest town and it never lets me down. I take it in for regular Honda service and have yet to make a major repair. The only thing I would love to have is four wheel drive but with good snow tires, it performs well in snow. Honda employee told me that because the first three years of this model were made in Japan, I could expect it to keep going to 450,000 km with no problems.
Best car ever had
Very nice, super efficient and reliable! Easy to maintain! Just need to change Poland do brakes .......
Very reliable even when older
Drives and runs great! Super gas mileage. Very roomy and responsive. Runs smooth even at higher speeds of 80-90 miles per hour. Low maintenance.
Honda Fit - very reliable and utilitarian
This is a great car that I recommend to everyone for a reliable commuter car. Its great to drive in the city due to its great visibility and is peppy enough at city speeds. The Fit has more room than many larger cars. For example, we were getting a chair reupholstered and the recliner fit in the Fit, but not my wife's Prius!
My cheap truck alternative
Its a great budget commuter/truck sorta vehicle. I have fit a tiller, dishwasher, mattresses, 8' ladder in this little clown car. Average 40 mpg on top of that so it becomes a question of usage. Great economical choice for hauling.
