Extremely reliable and dependable. Great trunk space.

Knock on wood, my Honda has not had any major problems over the last 9 years. It always starts reliably, has incredible gas mileage, and has a surprising amount of space. The back row collapses forward with an elevated trunk space so that you have a completely flat storage space if needed. I can easily fit a large cooler along with floaties and chairs without even having to collapse the seats. The only problem with space with this car would be that with my 6 year-old daughter's chicco car seat in the back, it is not quite enough room for her to be comfortable for longer periods without moving the front seat forward. Over the last couple of years, a rattle has developed when I accelerate the car, which I have yet to get looked at, but this is the first problem I have had with the car over the life of the car. I love this car and will drive it until it no longer will. I have driven it long distances of more than 1000 miles without problem several times. Of course with the engine that is in this car, acceleration is ok, but with all the other perks of this car, I have been very happy with this purchase.

Great car, multi-functional and fuel-efficient

It's a great car for fuel efficiency and utility. The hatchback and foldable back seats make hauling things around really easy; I used this car to move in and out of my college dorm by myself. The small size makes parking super easy, especially for parking garages and parallel parking. With the small size, the back seat is definitely cozy, but not uncomfortable, even with three average size adults I've never had a problem with it besides needing to replace the catalytic converter earlier this year, but that was more precautionary than anything. The car has trouble accelerating uphill, but I imagine most do, and otherwise I always feel safe in this car on the interstate. Definitely a great car for a single person or as one vehicle option for a family.

Reliable and fun Honda fit.

I love my Honda fit! I keep up with the maintenance and it has been reliable so far. It has 115k miles on it and runs just fine. I love the way the seats fold down because it gives me flexibility in loading my car. The amount of stuff that I can load in that little car always amazes me. For a small car, it is easy to get in and out of it, the seats are not as low to the ground as one might think. It is very comfortable. The one drawback is road noise, but with all the other great features and the for the price, the road noise is only a small drawback.
