The all around best car there is!
Needed to replace alignment cambers, prior to this the tires were wearing on the side closest to the car. $400-500 fix, but that is the worst thing that has gone wrong.
The engine seals are starting to leak and need replaced soon, but this is just normal wear on an 18 year old engine.
Automatic transmission shifts a little rough, but no real problem for the past 1 1/2 years-26,000 miles I have owned it.
Let me just start out with the facts...
This car is a beast!!!
It gets 30+ mpg in the city, 35-40 mpg hwy.
Tires are inexpensive - $220 for 4 new tires.
Fits 4 people comfortably, 5 in a pinch. Open up the hatch and fold down the rear seat and it becomes like a small truck.
The pick-up isn't the fastest, but what do you expect from a 1.5L engine?
Small on the outside, massive on the inside. This car is all about utility and efficiency, all I can say is that I wish that Honda still made the Civic wagon. The Honda Fit however does seem to be a bit of a reincarnation of the Civic wagon though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
