It is small but zippy and fun to drive!

2008 Honda Fit Sport Electric

The fit has been very reliable up until recently - at about 125k miles the suspension stabilizer bars broke and the fuel pump went out. When the fuel pump went out, it was sudden and left me stranded - it was also quite expensive to fix at around $800. At around 90k miles my vehicle had an issue with the distribution of power in the spark plugs, it took some time for the dealer to diagnose this, but it was also about $600. The only other continuing issues that I have had is that the back hatch leaks water that collects in the spare tire well. Oddly, I have also had to replace the headlight bulbs multiple times in the past 3 years. Other than those issues and general maintenance, this has been a great car! My fit is a sport model with a manual transmission - it is really fun to drive and if I shift properly I have no issue accelerating on the highway. . I purchased an extra set of snow tires and rims for my vehicle for winter, and it was like having a new car. With the snow tires, the fit handles quite well on snowy roads.

Economic, compact, great car

2008 Honda Fit Base

Overall is a good car to drive especially in a big city, where there is lack of parking. Is compact and easily to fit anywhere. It does give you a good gas mile. It is very economic since I do not spend too much money on gasoline. A full tank depending on gas price and usage can last about 2 weeks for less than $30.00 dollars. As with any other vehicle it requires it's regular maintenance, although it has its negatives as well. Being a small car and the shape of the car makes it difficult to drive in the highway at a high speed when there are strong winds. The wind can shake up the car. Also, there had been some recalls to the model and sometimes the car parts are difficult to find. The major problems I have encounter with this car is the tire sensor, it broke early when I acquired the car. Also the battery, dies very often. Another issue has been the door locks they broke and are too expensive to change. Other than that there are no major issues with this car model. I was to get another car I could get the latest model.

Loud engine, fun to drive, excellent handling!

2008 Honda Fit Sport Electric

My Honda Fit has been fun to drive. It is small, but powerful. This car handles like a beauty. When I bought it, I liked the option of switching to 'Sports' mode and being able to shift gears manually. However, since buying it I haven't used this feature more than once and that was just to test it out. The main feature I use is the cruise control when I'm driving long distances on the highway. It is easy to set and manage. Using buttons easily within reach on the steering wheel, you can accelerate or decelerate. If I had to complain about something it would be how loud the engine can run, it seems especially loud more recently.. but my car is now almost 12 years old and has almost 200,000 miles on it. Another annoyance I've had is the tire pressure on the front tires. It seems I'm always filling the tires with air, especially on the drivers side.
