2009 Honda Fit Sport 1.5 from North America
Great little commuter, good looks, great performance!
Nothing so far, bought the car last week.
Great little commuter, handles like a go-kart!
I bought it after reading and checking all the reviews on the net, TV and books. This is my first brand new car, and I didn't wanted to miss my shot, so I went to Chevrolet first to check out the Cobalt... horrible car, poor comfort, then went to Ford to try the Focus coupe, good handling, good comfort, and then I went to the Honda dealer and tried the Fit...
WOW, I was impressed with the handling, interior space, audio system with USB port, dashboard and seats configuration, I wanted a 2009 Fit Sport manual transmission taffeta white and got it! I think it was the last one in Québec, with a $2000 rebate it was a good deal.
For the first time in my life (I'm 40), people stare at my car not because it's a piece junk, but because it looks so good... can't wait to get the windows tinted.
The only little complaint I can address, is the engine is revving at 3000 rpm at 100km/h, so it's a bit noisy. So far I get around 6.7 litres/100km... not bad, but it will get better after the break-in period and the first oil change.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Congratulations on your new Honda Fit! Thankfully you did your research and avoided making the wrong choice. Not only is a Chevy Cobalt uncomfortable, it is also HORRIBLY unreliable. And the Focus isn't TERRIBLE, but it is still a domestic after all, which will mean much lower quality and reliability. Your Honda should be an excellent vehicle for years to come! Just keep up on that maintenance! I can't even begin to tell you how many times I've seen happy Honda owners lose faith because they fell for the myth that Honda's need no maintenance.
