This car is just what I was looking for. I was driving a Charger so I'm used to plenty of room and power. This is more of a mid-size car with plenty of interior room. The engine is a 1.5 L 4 cylinder turbo which makes it great on gas and has plenty of get up and go.
This is the most recent in a long line of Honda purchases since 1992. It's been very reliable like all of them and is the absolute best in the snow of any that I have owned, even without snow tires. The Vehicle Stability Assist is fantastic. It has plenty of pep for CT hills, even in Econ mode which I run all the time. I get 38-40 mpg all summer long and am 34-35 in the cold months. The "magic" folding back seats are incredibly useful for transporting all kinds of things, long and tall. This is my second Fit, I had a 2008 previously. My first Honda not made in Japan which I was very apprehensive about however I've had no problems at all in 14 months/12,000 miles.
A few days before this past Christmas I moved from an Altima lease to a ’18 Accord EX lease. I ended up paying a little more than what I wanted but was happy with the vehicle features. Unfortunately, immediately (let me note that I accepted the vehicle with less than 10 miles on it) I began having an issue with the vehicle. At certain speeds (mainly the normal traveling speeds), there will be a consistent, high pitch feedback / vibration from the speakers. It is an unmanageable noise. When I raise the radio volume past a certain setting the noise will cease. If I have others in the car, this is a major nuisance as nobody can hear anyone else.
I have had the car checked by one of your service technicians (who had been helpful to date) and was notified that this is an issue with the Automatic Nosie Canceling (ANC) system. Most disappointingly, I was notified by the technician that this is a known issue with the ’18 Accords and that there is NO KNOWN FIX. And the issue apparently is worse in cold weather. I brought the vehicle back for a second repair as there was a procedure that he wanted to execute as recommended by engineering. Unfortunately, that procedure did nothing to remedy the situation. I was instructed that my only options at this point are to drive with an open window (as that disables the ANC) or unplug the ANC (but not know are the potential negative downstream implications). The service department also said, engineering at some point will have a fix and basically I just need to deal with it.
This is a good car for a small family in the suburbs. Its not too big but has enough room to carry things. Good gas milage, good on interior space too.
