I put 39,000 miles on this car in the first 12 months. I had zero maintenance problems. I drove this car to the Florida, TX, New Orleans, California, all originating from Missouri. Now I'm at around 45,000 miles, the Fit runs like new.
This is my 6th car. I originally wanted the Accord but I didn't like the Lincoln Town Car feel. I drove a Civic next and I didn't like how low the ceiling is and the small feel. I didn't want to but I said why not, and I test drove the Fit and I was surprised, it was close to perfect as a car can be without spending almost $40,000.
On the highway I can get 40 mpg or up to 41 mpg if I'm cruising 65mph. At 70 mph I get 38 or 39 mpg.
In town it really depends on how hard you accelerate. In warm weather 36 and 37 mpg is not uncommon. In cold weather I get around 33 or 34 mpg in town.
I'm a body builder, I'm a big boy, but the Fit is comfortable. It fits 5 adults comfortably too. All of my friends were surprised when we packed in and fit comfortably and went to the club. I love how the back seats fold flat I can stick my mountain bike back there easily (with the front wheel off).
Controls are natural and user friendly.
Blue dash lights are pretty neat.
IPOD and USB connectors.
CD player has good features.
Speakers are quality sound.
Roomy, I can carry a lot of cargo with the seats folded down, I can even take a nap back there if I lye diagnole.
top notch fit and finish.
Paddle shifters are fun or can be conservative on gas when you want.
My chief complaint is you can hear road noise at highway speed.
I was upset Honda didn't include floor mats! That's insulting. I paid $87 for the rubber Honda ones and they're okay.
Not as cool a muscle car.
Best thing is it was only $20 or $21 to fill up the Fit's gas tank. Now that gas is around $3 a gallon it cost me $26. But, the gas will last a long time in the Fit.
