I did a massive amount of research before buying this car. In the end, it was the safety rating and backseat room that edged the Fit ahead of a couple other very similar cars. My goal was to find a small car with really excellent gas mileage to drive back and forth to work, but that could still sometimes work as a family car. And it had to be affordable and reliable. This car does that wonderfully. I have been driving it just over three months, and my average gas mileage is 39.9 mpg! This car works so well as a family car that we usually choose to drive the Fit over our comfortable and roomy (but older and not gas efficient) Impala. Even with tall teen guys in the back --usually just one or two, but we have put three in the back-- the Fit has enough leg room. The backseat and cargo space are truly excellent. The front seat is a little less perfect. I can't understand what sadistic planning went into the front headrests' design, but they are awful and make no sense. The best you can do is try to position them so that you never come in contact with them. This is not a car where you can kick back and relax when you are, say, waiting to pick up your kids from a late bus drop off. I miss having an armrest, and the driver's seat doesn't adjust easily or as much as I am used to. I also find the deep foot wells in front a little uncomfortable. This is the first car I've had with the steering wheel radio controls, and I really love them. The rest of the audio controls are difficult to use when driving, and using the touch screen, the way it is set up, is cumbersome. The CD player isn't very user-friendly, but you do have several other options for listening. Using the hands-free phone is not a smooth process either. I also don't care for the way all of the driving information, like the odometer, mpg, gas range, etc, is hidden in one little gauge circle. There are three or four little screens to page through to find the info you are looking for. The back-up and lane-change cameras are nice features and work well. The sun visors need some improvement. They don't really do the job. The sliding door on the sun roof is great for too hot days. I am seeing the separation in the back wheel wells that I've seen discussed in Fit forums. I don't know how much of a problem this will be. I have only had my Fit in the summer and I am very interested to see how this car drives on winter roads. It has been fine in heavy rain. The wipers and the fog lights are very good. I have already been rear-ended in this car, and I was impressed at how minimal the damage was. I was hit hard enough to be bumped forward about a yard by the impact. The only damage was the two holes left by the other car's licence plate bolts. I was expecting the whole back bumper to be cracked. Overall, I am super happy with this car. For the price, and for such varied needs, I would not expect any car to be perfect, but the Fit comes close. It is cute and fun and makes me happy to drive. It is worth it for the great gas mileage alone.

The Fit Isn't a Compromise.

I was a loyal Hyundai driver until my second Accent became undriveable at only 57,000 miles. I wasn't ready to spend money on another Hyundai without checking out the competition, which has come a long way since I bought my first Accent in 2002. I ended up with a Honda Fit LX, the entry level model. I had always been proud of the Accent's value/cost ratio, as it made me feel like a smart shopper. But there isn't a single area where the Fit isn't superior. It's just about an inch longer than my Accent, yet front and especially back seat riders have far more room. It's more powerful and far more efficient. It rides better and is more comfortable. The Fit also has a feel of quality and solidity, inside and out, that the Accent couldn't match. Best of all, I get all of this along with Honda reliability for only a few hundred dollars more than the base Accent. There are a few small areas where the Fit misses the mark. I was surprised that the intermittent wipers only had one speed, and I miss the cargo cover my Accent had but the fit does not (it's a pricey dealer add-on). An armrest would be nice, and (small) areas of the dashboard are glossy black plastic which attracts dust and fingerprints almost instantly. Also, good luck finding a manual. The CVT is ok, but I would much rather have had a manual (my old car was dead so I couldn't even wait a few days for them to ship one in). On the plus side, my entry level Fit LX has: 130 hp, cruise control, power doors/locks, CD stereo with aux and USB input, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, on-wheel controls for audio and cruise control, rear back-up camera, etc. etc. The features on higher trim levels are things I didn't want anyway, but FYI they include moonroof, larger display screen (touchscreen, you lose the knobs), and a lane-change camera which I found more distracting then helpful. I can't just go out and buy the car I want. My choices are limited by my finances. My Fit was well within my budget, and never feels like a compromise or sacrifice. I never feel like I'm settling.

I just purchased the Honda Fit EX a couple of days ago... and I love it. I read many reviews but could't beat the reviews of the Honda fit. People complained about the comfort of the seats.. and so far i'm not disappointed at all.. This is my first Honda and bought to save gas.. but so much more than that. Love the touch screen radio/computer.. Back seat has tons of room and with the easy lay down seats gives me plenty of room for groceries.. or large shopping trips. When i purchased 2 days ago.. i had 12 miles on it.. and now I have 233 . Great car so far!

Hopefully the Last Car I'll Buy

Over all the car is fine -- has more electronic functions than I care for, but all I need is basic, fuel efficient transportation with good cargo space. I am hoping the 2015 redesign will be as reliable as the last Honda I drove for 21 years. I like having 4 doors and a backup camera. Some of the aerodynamic features make the car difficult to clean off after a snowfall -- the deep well for the air intake at the base of the windshield especially needs its own shovel. The manual gear ratio is also taking some getting used to -- I am already in 6th gear at 25 or 30 mph! I am also having trouble finding a comfortable position for the steering wheel. And the seats don't have the good lumbar support of my last Honda.

First tank got 28 mpg and it was only on the highway for 4 miles. It has punch and style. I liked the "Econ" feature and I can tell a difference in the performance of the car when it is on - totally worth it - but it lets you know how your driving is effecting your gas mileage. I like that. Great little car for the money but actually will carry more things than you would think because of its design. The side, I have seen, is very similar to the Prius and I am curious if I'm not getting the same mpg in the long run, without the Prius price tag. It is fun to drive and even the bottom of the line in accessories has more accessories than I expected. Friends who have Hondas have told me they have never bought anything but another Honda.

THE VERY BEST CAR IN IT'S CLASS !!!

Read as much about the New LX 2015 Fit decided to trade in my 2009 Fit. Today I Test Drove It 1st then bought a New 2015 LX Newly Totally Redesigned Fit...Wow what a upgrade from my prior fit. Honda has really improved the quality of the interior starting with the seats then What a surprise I was not expecting this new keyless ignition system something the other car makers only put in their $30K cars along with touch screen radio controls along with the camera R/S & Rear View. It came with a Power Sun Roof . The car rides a 100% better then my 2009 it feels much like a heavier car meaning you don't feel every bump in the road anymore. I loved my 2009 Fit but I really love what they have done with the New 2015. If your tired of paying allot at the gas pump I strongly 100% Recommend this car to anyone it gets great gas mileage & it has the same horsepower but with the newly improved transmission you can feel it has more pep to the car. I CAN HONESTLY RECOMEND THIS NEW 2015 FIT TO ANYONE....Paid only $20,028.00 after all taxes, DMV Cost.

We've had it only two weeks but love it already. We're halfway on a 2500 mi road trip (MN-ME and back). Plenty of room for baggage for four adults in hatchback; expressions of comfort and roominess from the two young adult back seat passengers. 41 mpg so far (we have the LX manual). Nits include unpeppy acceleration and some difficulty understanding the phone-Bluetooth thing (we keep getting messages that iPHone is disconnected but it's not.). But so far, so very good. Stable on the highway. Quiet enough. Easily maneuverable in city streets.

We owned an 08' Fit Sport and put 120K + miles on her. Would've probably ran another 100K miles. Wasn't as comfortable as I would've liked so we looked at the new 2015's. The Fit EX-L is great. Most important thing is that my wife really loved it. Much improved comfort, styling, room with all the bells and whistles. You can go wrong with the Fit!!

it is just what we needed. we are driving over 300 miles a week to commute to work so we needed something fuel efficient but we also love the amount of space. we thought about getting a corolla but the fit has much more room and better gas mileage. we average between 43 and 45 mpg.
