Very compact, but great for people who are constantly moving and transporting things (aka college students).

I love that it's a small car, but is so flexible in terms of trunk space - the seats fold down completely flat, or fold up to the ceiling allowing me to fit a bike in it. I work in the city and do a lot of city driving; and it gets great gas mileage for city driving and it being an 8 year old car. My only complaint is that it's getting to be so old that it accelerates painfully slow sometimes & doesn't have cruise control (because it is the base model).

- Miranda B

It's reliable and fuel efficient.

My vehicle is super efficient and a perfect fit for me. My favorite things about it are the gas efficiency (over 200 city miles to a tank), the fact that I can still transport things since the back seat folds flat into the floor and it is an adorable well running car. The only thing I dislike is if I stop at a stop-sign on a hill in my neighborhood when I take my foot off the brake it rolls backwards but other than that I love it.

- Rachel W

Love my Honda fit. It's dependable and drives like a sports car.

Honda is the only car I'll ever buy. My current car is a 2010 Honda fit sport model which was new when I purchased it. It is almost ten years old and it has never needed any repairs. The only thing that I have had to do is replace the tires one time and get regular oil changes. I love it and you will too! Also, it drives like a sports car and get great gas mileage. The perfect car. Only Hondas for me!

- jill H

The fit fits my lifestyle.

I love that my car is so spacious and easy to care for. The gas mileage is excellent and it is not very expensive. I can take care of my car at home with small repairs (i.e.. Changing lights, oil changes, etc. ) And the major repairs are not that costly either. It is a fun car to drive and easily distinguishable in a parking lot because it does not look like a lot of other cars out there.

Honda Fit. Low maint, good mileage (about 39 mph), lots of room in a small car.

Other than routine maintenance I have had very few problems. A timing belt needed replacement about two years ago - about $100. Total. I am 5' 10" and have no problems getting in & out. Large interior. When I bought it, I was a professional DJ could fit all my equipment in rear. Now I am a Santa & can put my "throne", bags of toys, etc. in the same space. Love this car.

- Dan S

How easy it is to pack up and go, for example, on a picnic or a day trip to Chicago. Just toss your stuff in and go.

I like the size. It is perfect for me to take a friend out shopping. There is plenty of space in the back for shopping bags or lumber or anything really that I would need to haul. I like how easy it is to drive. I have had very little work done on it so far. There is only one thing I hate. That is how noisy the car can be going down the highway.

- MaryAnn C

The perfect combination of practical and sporty.

Purchased due to its reputation as the lowest-cost-of-ownership vehicle on the market, I've had this car for over eight years now and in that time it has required no more attention than standard maintenance. Fuel economy, cargo space, and a value that has dropped surprisingly little in almost a decade make this the best car I've owned.

- Heather G

The fit fits - anywhere, anything!

Not a super smooth ride, but I love that it fits into tight spaces, can hold just about anything, and is super cute. It gets great mileage and is great for city driving. Taking it for longer trips can be a little uncomfortable. I like the monitors for the tires and oil, so that I know exactly when to take it in for its next service.

- Jennifer P

Storage in a small car, Honda fit.

My Honda fit is a joy to drive. I haven't had many issues with it at all. For a smaller vehicle, it is very comfortable and offers plenty of space in the back seat and trunk for when you need to carry large items. The seats all fold back. I also like the shape of the windows and they offer extra visibility to the sides of the car.

- Sydney N

My favorite car thus far.

I have never had any problems with my vehicle after owning it for three years. It is a very dependable car and has never broken down on me. The car is still in great shape after all of these years. The only maintenance I have had to do on it is just regular oil changes. The gas mileage is great and just what I need.

- Katy G

IF you need a get you around town and anywhere car, this is it.

I like is compact size and that is has plenty of room in the back for groceries or items for projects, like garden soil and flowers. It is easy to drive. The mileage is very good. I looked at all of the similar cars before I bought it and I would by a Honda Fit again today if I needed a new car but I don't.

- Mary Ann C

Reliable, gas friendly, parent friendly!

I feel like all the cars that I have had, this is but far the best. Especially for a new mommy. It is reliable, gas friendly, and trust my new baby in it. I even recommended this car to my family members. Its small and compact but not tight with no room. Can fit my stroller in the trunk along with groceries.

- Violet I

When you fold down the back seats, it has a lot of storage.

It gets great gas mileage, it is very easy to drive, and it is very maneuverable. I believe it is a great value for the money. It has a lot of storage - it seems bigger on the inside! I have been able to fit two chairs inside (with the seats down). It is comfortable for both the passengers and the driver.

- Karen P

Spacious hatchback that is very reliable and low maintenance.

I bought this car used three years ago and I have had no problems with it since! Typical maintenance such as oil changes, brakes and such. It is very good on gas and has a great amount of room for a compact car. With it being a hatchback, it is actually easy to move things around and maximize the space.

- Natalie V

For a compact car, it is very roomy.

The car gets great gas mileage very dependable, it is very easy to navigate in tight places. Although it is small. It can hold a lot of groceries and also a 6 foot rug. The back seats either fold down or fold up making easy access. The only thing I do not like is that it is very noisy to the outside.

- Carol M

Fits are fantastic. They are fun and great on gas and parking.

My car is great. It is compact and easy to find parking spaces. . Inexpensive to operate. If you do regular maintenance. I find it very reliable. I have only had a few repairs which is a good sign considering it is a 2010. I get 26 miles to a gallon. I have plenty of trunk room for such a small card.

- L F

Great handling and gas mileage, nice design and colors.

The Honda Fit hatchback is great for my purposes as a singleton without a lot to haul. It handles well and is nicely compact, with great gas mileage. I managed to get one in metallic orange, which is perfect for visibility and easy to find among the sea of bland-colored vehicles in a parking lot.

- Hillary D

Honda fit bang for the buck.

Very good on gas, almost 100k miles and no major problems. The hatchback makes hauling a variety of items much easier. For a small car it is reasonably comfortable although seats could be just a little wider. Price paid versus value received is very good. Have recommended this vehicle to friends.

- Randy B

It is roomy for it is size and good in gas.

It steers well, has get up and go, is easy to park, has comfortable seats, radio is loud enough and sounds good. The downside is that the door armrests cave in and the driver's seat belt does not retract like it used to, the sun visors don't stay all the way up or down because they are loose.

- Larry B

Gas mileage is amazing and helps our monthly budget.

Our Honda Fit is an amazing car. It is very well made and has had very few problems. Gas mileage is around 26 miles per gallon. I only have to fill up once every 2 weeks. On really hot days in Texas the air conditioner has to work really hard because the engine is small. We love our Fit.

- Amy W

Good combination of style and engineering.

My car is reliable, peppy, comfortable. My only complaint that it is design creates blind spots which make merging onto highways uncomfortable. It has a surprising amount of room for a small car. It is styling has kept with the times and because of its small size it is a perfect city car.

- Mary Anne M

It's an extremely great and practical car to have.

I love the fact that this is a very small car, but it's spacious on the inside. I can carry everything (and everyone) I need to inside of it. It's a well-built car, runs smoothly, never have issues with it. It doesn't have unnecessary bells and whistles. And it's designed attractively.


Small, compact, good gas mileage, comfortable and reliable.

I love my car! Love the amount of space I have in it for people or cargo. Super reliable and comfortable. Love the sound system and my large windshield. Its small yet feels large. Gets good gas mileage and is nice to drive. Comfortable for long distances and rarely has an issues.

- Amy K

You can really fit large furniture in the hatch.

It take a while for the car to heat up in the winter 10 min or so. Also using the ac sometimes you get a funky smell. I feel also that the front of the car is low so when driving over a merge you have to be careful not to hit the bottom of the car or you'll scrape the bottom.

- Mandy G

The biggest surprise was the amount of space I got in a compact car!

This Honda has been perfect for me. And it has a surprising amount of space, while still being compact enough to make parking a breeze. Friends are always surprised at how much I can fit in my car. Also, the perfect size car for me and my dog we took many road trips together.

- Kim T

Honda fit is the best! It is Versatile and roomy inside!

I have some issues with the air conditioning. It was either a Freon problem or a leak. I also had to replace the breaks sooner than anticipated and the tires frequently. That being said I love my Honda fit. It fits in every spot, handles great and is very roomy inside.

- Kiki D

Honda cars are very low maintenance so worry-free in many ways.

I like the low maintenance and good gas mileage. I dislike the blind spots in the front and rear corners. I dislike the tiny battery and tires which are harder to replace than other cars particularly since they last a far shorter time than those of other cars.

- ann a

Great for downtown living and everything else

The Fit is really great for having a car that can fit in tight parking spots downtown yet still have enough room to fit all the people and/or things I need to carry around. It is also super reliable and gets great gas mileage during trips around the midwest.

- Michael Z

It is fast little car that can also hold out of room.

The fit is very comfortable. It is reliable, fast and roomy. There is 6 cup holders and the seats fold down flat for more space. It has a beautiful color and it has good stereo system. The car is safe and reliable and used day to day. Would get another one.

- Elizabeth T

Honda fit, it all just fits.

The fit is aptly named. It fits just about everything. The rear seats are roomy and comfortable, fold down flat and when folded have a good deal of space for stuff. It has been reliable and has needed almost no service other then the normal oil and tires.

- Clif G

Fitting into a Honda fit.

Paint oxidation issues- the paint has begun to oxidize in the roof and the hood of the car. Recalls- airbags were recalled and the dealership replaced them. Has maintained great mileage. You can fit a lot in a fit. Seats are comfortable with leg room.

- Christina G

Honda fit awesomeness: you will enjoy this car! It is fun on the run!

My Honda fit has been a really great car to own! It is easy to handle, fun to drive, and good on gas. I love the hatchback too. It has come in very handy! I chose the blue color. It is been very reliable, and it is my most favorite car I ever purchased.

- Vanessa C

It has great miles per gallon for fuel efficiency

I like it because of the MPG and because Honda's generally have a really good repair record and they retain their value. My only complaint was the AC didn't work well but I had it fixed. I wish it wasn't red because I feel like it stands out too much

- Lisa S

Great fuel efficiency/gas mileage

I love that it's compact and can fit in any parking space. It's easy to maneuver for parallel parking. I also love the fuel efficiency- that aspect can't be beat, as this car doesn't carry any extra weight. I also love the way the seats fold down.

- Erica W

It is small and you feel intimidated on the road but it's a very safe vehicle

I love that it is small and easy to park anywhere. I love the gas mileage of 35-40 mpg. I love that in 8 years the car has been dependable and nothing has gone wrong! The only complaint I have is that the car is slow in gaining speed.

- Amy F

That the back seats fold forward so that if a passenger has a lot of material that needs to be transported this car can handle it

I like the fact that it has plenty of legroom so that I can stretch my legs. It has plenty of room for groceries. What's also really cool about it is that the back seats bend down so that passengers can haul many big items as well.

- Mac k

Small, fuel efficient car that can keep up with any other car.

My 2010 Honda Fit is a very reliable compact car. It has gone over three thousand miles in one sitting with ease. Very fuel efficient. A fairly comfortable car to be in for a few miles. A longer ride will require better support.

- Patricia V

For the price, you will have a very dependable and enjoyable car to drive

The Fit is a great vehicle, very dependable, low maintenance, smooth ride, great gas mileage. The smaller engine means that acceleration and pick up is slow and it is "noisy" in that outside noises are easily heard when driving

- Jeff L

It will always start and operates consistently.

It gets good gas mileage and is reliable. I've only had to perform routine maintenance on it with about 160,000 miles on it and taking it in numerous road trips. Given the price it's the best value vehicle I've ever owned.

- Nick A

Has been taken care of very well, and has loving miles instead of hard miles.

The vehicle has held up very well for the mileage on it. I needed it to get me through school and get my children to school and it does. It requires little maintenance and I have had few problems with it to date.

- Emily R

A small car for people who love to drive.

I love my car. It's small enough to park anywhere, it's ridiculously fuel efficient (even 8 years on), and it's reliable. I don't like how bare bones the amenities are (though I understand it's a bargain car).

- Stef Z

It is very sturdy. If you take care of the vehicle, as it keep the maintenance updated, it will last for years.

I like that it is a small, yet sturdy vehicle. It is roomy, although small. I don't like that the AC does not blow very cold air. Also, I dislike that the truck has a soft, rather than a hard cover.

- Monie H

It is a very dependable car. It has been a wonderful first brand new car for me and I would recommend the Fit for other first time car buyers.

My Fit is dependable. It is roomy but not too big. The only thing I do not like about it is that I do not have cruise control but I am probably too much of a control freak to use that feature anyway.

- Heather K

The amazing amount of space within!

My only complaints are that the blue paint oxidized and there is no cruise control. I love how much space is in the car for passengers and my things! It gets great gas mileage and is easy to drive.

- Katherine V

It is very good on gas. Great on the mileage. It fits anywhere you park it.

Has, good gas mileage, comfy, roomy, big windows for vision, seats comfy, reliable, only problem is air conditioner does not work as well as it should due to lots of windows. Hard to cool the car.

- Mary H

That is it a Honda Fit Sport, so she looks pretty cool.

I like the style and appearance of the car. I love how spacious the interior is, especially the hatch back. I do not like the acceleration or shocks. The car is so low that every bump feels rough.

- Tiffany C

It's small and has great acceleration because of that.

I like that it is compact and can fit into parking spots other cars would have difficulty parking in. It has good gas mileage but sometimes I feel scared driving on the highway around semi trucks.

- Justin J

It is a comfortable vehicle both to drive and sit in.

I like my honda fit because it is more spacious than one might think. I can fit loads of things - books, bags, cello, etc in it. I don't like the ease of hearing road noise. That is distracting.

- g g

Great car for a single woman and great car for a family with kids.

It does not use much gas and very economical.

I love that it is very economical. I can park in small places. It is fun to drive. So far my car has not had any issues that I would have to pay. It is been very reliable since I purchased it.

- Maria A

It's bigger on the inside! Reliable, roomy, great for the city or for road trips.

I enjoy how spacious it is while being a smaller car. The back seat folds completely down which, when adding to the hatchback feature, makes packing and moving a lot easier. Drives nicely!

- Lacie W

Honda fit - it fits everything!

The Honda fit is really dependable. It gets great gas mileage, and it lives up to its name! We were able to fit three people, three bikes, and luggage for a weekend. You can fit anything!

It is a good basic car need more storage. It is reliable car. The dome light has stopped working and the driver side door will not unlock. Have to unlock the passage door and climb over.
