Summary:

The most perfect car ever built

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Everything is perfect. Everything. This is the first car that I have ever owned for which I can make that statement. Comfort, agility, handling, economy, price, engineering, pick-up, sound, safety.

If I could add anything to the car, it would be things that even other cars don't have yet, like more airbags in the rear, even though it already has rear-curtain airbags. Maybe even better pollution rating.

Driving and owning a Fit is like dating a supermodel... sometimes you can't believe how perfect everything is, and you're afraid something is going to eventually get screwed up!

Summary:

Excellent engineering, safety and design, but seriously lacks driver comfort

Faults:

The car is runing perfectly after 540 miles, and I expect there to be no surprises any time soon!

General Comments:

I bought the 2007 model three weeks ago and have reconfigured the seats every which way since then. This car has amazing cargo space and gives lounging comfort when not behind the steering wheel. Roominess is what I love most about the Fit!

It's a Honda, therefore safety features are unquestionably excellent. Not only are there driver and passenger front and side air bags, but rear passengers have side curtain bags too.

My last car was stolen from my car port, so security is a big concern. I was happy that the Sport model came with perimeter security and key-less entry. I got special wheel locks on the lug nuts and feel confident that I am deterring thieves the best way possible.

This car is great for around town and straight freeway driving because it is quick and maneuvers well. It's not a touring car due to the tight suspension, and I am weary after a long drive.

My biggest problem with the Fit is the lack of lumbar support in the driver's seat. I get pain between my shoulder blades and had to by a $149 seat support to correct the problem. Secondly, I am aggravated by the cramped floor space near the pedals; I am always trying to find a relaxing position for my feet. I have a sore muscle in my right foot from the weird angle it is kept in. Third, the lack of telesscoping steering wheel requires that I must unnaturally stretch out my arms to drive.

Sadly, the lack of driving comfort has forced me to sell this otherwise fabulous car!

Having tried out several of the new "box" small cars, I can't fathom why anyone would buy a Fit or Yaris. They are grossly over-priced, underpowered and cramped. The Chevy Aveo is smoother, faster, has more room and can be bought for almost HALF of what the Fit and Yaris sell for. Paying 7 grand more for a little "T" or "H" emblem is not rational.

Summary:

It's an awesome car - I'd recommend it to anyone!

Faults:

Not a single thing has gone wrong with this car.

General Comments:

I love this car - I previously owned a Sienna van. I accepted new employment at the beginning of the summer that required a commute of 50 miles more per day than my previous position. I knew I wanted a car that delivered good gas mileage, and still had room for cargo. (I live in an area where hurricane evacuations are certain, and I needed a vehicle that would hold large crates of photo albums, etc.) I spent hours researching vehicles, test drove the Fit, and that was that. It is incredibly fun to drive, great on gas, (I average 34-36 mpg,) roomy, comfortable, great sound system, and cute as a button. My only quibble with the car is that I would have loved a factory installed driver's armrest. But I could order one of those, though, so that problem is solvable.

I agree with this review. The "Fit" is an awesome car. I just recently purchased one too. I love it. I am 6'2" and I can honestly say that I am comfortable driving this car. I have headroom aplenty, legroom is adequate. I am also the owner of an 05 Dodge Ram with a hemi, so gas mileage is not a gripe with me in comparison to my truck. I definitely recommend purchasing a "Fit" if you are the market for an economical, dependable car with a fair amount of seating comfort and cargo space.
