2009 Honda Fit Sport 1.5 from North America


Great little commuter, good looks, great performance!


Nothing so far, bought the car last week.

General Comments:

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 Qu├ębec, 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.

The Fit is the best for the money


Nothing has gone wrong so far after 1300 miles of driving, everything feels like it will last a long time.

General Comments:

I noticed that you cannot lower or raise the front seats, which is really weird for me because I tend to have that option for all my previous cars, but it has a lot of head space, so it's not that big of a deal.

The MPG on this car is good. If I really try I could get about 40MPG, but at the moment I'm getting 34MPG driving my normal way.

My Aunt had blue 2010 Fit, and she has no trouble with it so far. That's good news.

The Fit is a good car, but I would rather have a Toyota Yaris. It costs about the same, but is actually a few seconds faster, and bit more fuel efficient. Also, I think the Yaris looks better than the Fit.

The Fit is far more practical, roomy and has 11 more horsepower. As far as looks goes, I prefer the Fit.

I don't think your Yaris will carry anywhere near as much cargo as my Fit. I go to track days and take helmets, canopy, track stands, generator, tools, riding gear, cooler, and a small table (foldable). Last time I rented a Yaris, I had a hard time getting 2 carry-ons in the back!

The Fit Sport is better looking than the base for sure.

I own the 09 Fit Sport, and on long trips with the A/C full blast, it averages over 40 MPG on the highway.

The cargo space with the seats folding flat and also tilting up is amazing. Fun to drive and super reliable.
