Great little car that feels so much bigger when inside!

2012 Honda Fit Sport Electric

First let me start by saying I love this car! I got it brand new and I have loved it since day one. 1st thing I loved about it was once you get inside the car it feels so much bigger than you think it will be from the outside. 2nd is I have had very few issues overall with this car. Even getting the little bit of work that I have had done to it, Didn't cost me an arm and a leg. I would say there is 2 things I don't like, 1st being that the shocks are not good at all, you will really feel the road and any and every bump along the way. 2nd would be the windshield wipers, there are only 3 speeds, super slow, fast, and super fast. One of my favorite things about the car is that it fits! The name couldn't have been any better. You want to park in that tiny parking spot, sure it will fit! You want to put that big thing in the back of the car, yep the seats will move around in more ways than one to make sure that whatever it is that you need to haul will fit! Sound system that came with it is not bad at all too. I would tell anyone that wants a great little car that's good on gas, but also has enough get up and go to keep up. Then This is your car!

The best bang for your buck - the fit fits.

2012 Honda Fit

Vehicle has large windows throughout which eliminates the multiple blind spots that other cars typically suffer from. The vehicle is also surprisingly very spacious with the back seat capable of completely folding down. That feature comes in handy when I moved from san Diego to san Jose and again, when I moved to a different house. When shopping, or transporting large items, we also use the fit versus the Lexus since it is more spacious. One of my favorite features with the vehicle is how compact it is. It can fit in the tiniest of the parking spaces and makes parallel parking easier. We have the saying “the fit fits” since we're able to nab spaces in busy lots that most vehicles drive past by since they do not fit. The gas mileage efficiency is everything about this car, which is probably the reason why we utilize the fit as our main car. The only downside to the vehicle is the lack of horsepower. Driving uphill is a struggle. In order to keep up with the traffic, I feel the need to be a little heavy footed. Obviously, it sounds like I am pushing the car more than it is limits which worries me in terms of preserving the car.

Honda Fit: Efficiency & Personality

2012 Honda Fit Sport Electric

The 2012 Honda Fit is a great car. It holds about nine gallons of gas, and has a feature that tells you your average gas mileage. For me, that's usually around 36. It drives very comfortably and has reliable but not too sensitive steering and breaking. Despite it being a relatively small car, the back seats fold down, making a lot of room for transporting bigger things. One issue is the wide trim at the edges of the windshield, it creates a blind spot, especially while turning. Also, sometimes the hatchback door handle can get stuck in a open position, which makes it difficult to actually get the hatchback open. However, it is still an awesome car that I love.
