An inexpensive car for driving enthusiasts
When I had an after-market remote start installed (manual transmission), a dash clip came loose and got jammed in the shift linkage. Only 3rd and 4th gear would engage.
A little scary, but it wasn't Honda's or the Fit's fault. Just be careful that you trust after-market installers.
(The remote start is great BTW).
I have barely driven the Fit 1000 miles, but here's what I have so far:
- Loves to rev.
- Handles incredibly well.
- Classic Honda feel and sound.
- Incredible storage capacity ("Magic seats").
- Respectable fuel economy.
- I'm 6'5" and have no issues with getting in/out/fitting.
- High resale value.
- Very large after-market for accessories/support/etc.
- 10(!) cup holders.
- Option to play MP3 music from a USB stick in the glove box.
- Power windows/locks.
- Stiff cloth seats, which attract animal hair.
- Unusual blind spots.
- Road noise may bother some.
- Interior plastic is prone to scratching.
- No Bluetooth on manual transmission models.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
