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.

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.

It 'fits' just about everything!

2008 Honda Fit Sport Electric

My Honda fit is perfect for my daily needs. I currently work for an electrical company but I am not provided a company vehicle. My fit is versatile enough to haul all my tools, fit into tight spaces, and not break the bank on fuel when frequent travel is necessary. While not the most comfortable, this hatchback is definitely one of the most agile cars I have driven and is incredibly reliable. I recently took a backpacking trip to South Dakota (1700 miles round trip) and the car took it without any issues whatsoever. I should also mention I drive the 5-speed manual and after 150,000 mile the original clutch is still grabbing. Very impressive!

The vehicles stereo is hands down the best I have ever had.

2008 Honda Fit Sport Electric

My car ever since I purchased it has worked amazing. The gas mileage was a big factor in the purchase because fits get such good mpg on the highways as well as city. The car drives very smooth. Have not had any issues with any of the parts. The tires were rotated and new rotors were put on but besides that EVERYTHING else is in tip top shape. The car has about 195,000 miles on it but fits are made to drive close to 300,000 so if I keep it in good shape then I would have no issues having it last that long. All in all I would say a Honda fit is a great purchase for someone who drives a lot for work and or leisure.

It's very safe despite it being a small car.

2008 Honda Fit Sport Electric

I absolutely love my car. It appears small on the outside but once you're in it, it's very spacious. I have one child and it's just enough room for the two of us. It fits all my groceries in the trunk and much more. What I also like, is if you have to move larger items, the two back seats fold down to make one giant trunk. I have felt this car has been very good on gas mileage as well. I have had no problems with it so far despite it being 11 years old. I believe these cars can be very lasting, safe, and efficient given the proper care.

2008 Honda Fit Sport Electric

I currently have 227,000 miles on my Honda Fit and it is still going strong! I use it for my daily commute back and forth from Orange County to Los Angeles. I do regular maintenance on it, such as oil changes. It has plenty of room given how compact it looks from the outside. The ride is smooth and I feel very safe in it. Recently I needed to put in a new fuel pump but that is the only out of the ordinary maintenance I've done.

Easy compact drive with roomy interior

2008 Honda Fit Sport Electric

A very easy drive. The vehicle is compact but still roomy inside the cabin with capacity to haul a good amount. Hatchback is very convenient for large items. Stock sound system is good quality. My only complaint is the vehicle is very low to the ground and it causes a few problems, I.e. hitting curbs or parking planks, skimming bottom of the car going over speed bumps, etc.

Adorable and versatile little car!

2008 Honda Fit Sport Electric

It is an adorable little car! I am able to zip around in traffic, and can fit pretty large items in the back, especially when I fold down the seats. Does not feel like an economy car when you are in it. Gets great mileage and has good pickup. I have had this car for 10 years and plan to get another Honda fit when this one eventually needs to be replaced.

Small and efficient car. Great for coat cost effective commuting.

2008 Honda Fit Sport Electric

Comfortable. Great on gas. Approximately 25 miles to gallon in city and 32 miles to the gallon on freeway. Roomy for small car. Reliable. Has no mechanical problems. Hatchback makes for a great and convenient trunk space. Rides smooth. Easy to park and make tight turns due to small size.

- Bonnie F

I like all the windows and the hatchback is a nice feature

2008 Honda Fit Sport Electric

Paint fading, replaced ball joints, great car though. Good on gas. Would definitely purchase again. Great value. My fourth Honda and all have been great cars. I recommend buying a Honda. My car was bought used. Oil changes regularly really seem to make the car last longer .
