2007 Honda Fit Hatchback Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We drove 2 new Civic manual trans for 12 yrs each with no problems. As for the Fit: Wire harness recall. Starter motor replaced at 34,000 m. Broken front axle, and manual trans. replaced at 39,000. We've lived in the same place since 1984, same driving conditions, same avg. miles per yr. Fit's a relatively new model, and its reliability hasn't really been tested until now. We'll soon know if the car's Fit to be called a Honda.


Best Features

Storage capacity. Fuel economy. Interior quality.


Worst Features

Mechanical! In over 25 years experience with Hondas, only the Fit has been proven to be unreliable. And it's not cheap compared with other cars in its class.

2007 Honda Fit Hatchback Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

When I test drove the Fit, I listened for road noise/cabin noise because I drive quite a bit. I should have driven the car longer. The cabin noise is simply overwhelming at times. I will consider other tires to see if this helps, but the noise is so loud, it makes the car feel cheap and tinny. Don't get me wrong: I love this car - I just can't stand the amount of road noise I hear. And my wife doesn't like the stereo playing at full blast in order to drown it out!


Best Features

The MPG is fantastic, but I mostly love the maneuverablity, handling, and ability to park just about anywhere.


Worst Features

Honda has to address the cabin noise. Simply saying that it is to be expected in a car at this price is a lame excuse. If it doesn't improve, this will sadly be my last Honda.

2007 Honda Fit Hatchback Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I get 40 mpg on the hi-way! If it is cooler in the season and the a/c doesn't need to be on that little car is great. It will drop down to about 37 mpg hi-way with the a/c turned on. I'm planning on driving it up to NE Georiga next month, so the truth will be known on the mpg then, but It's great to fill it up on a meer 10.00 while others are laying out 20-50 dollar per fill up


Worst Features

Wish it has a bit more leg room since I'm 6'4" Wish the parts on a 2009-2010 would fit on a 2007. I just love those new back seats

2007 Honda Fit Hatchback 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

After 3 years and 25k miles, I haven't had to change a thing, not even the windshield wiper rubber! It lives up to the Honda reputation. Ample room and flexible seat arrangements allows you to carry big or long items, saving the cost of buying a truck. Its headroom is larger than most SUV and midsize cars.


Best Features

Utility. I once put in a 4 feet plant in it at upright position, which amazed people around me.


Worst Features

I'd love it to be a larger car and feel more robust. Honda offers FRV (or Edix) in Europe and some Asian nations, which is a "Civic-based Fit". The car seats 6, and is as versatile as Fit. I wonder why it is n/a in my nation. It would save me the money for a van.

2007 Honda Fit Hatchback Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

It's all wrong ! The transmission setup is really awful. The gearing ratio into first gear and second result in a noticeable hesitation as the computer tries to match up with the short gear and the computer fuel delivery system. These tiny engine/trans crammed into a tiny space don't leave much room for clutch travel. Whereby we have a short time to ease the clutch out and get moving. The feel is not really smooth at all, and I have always enjoyed sticks. But in this car, get the auto and spare yourself the grief. This car even chatters backing up a hill. I am sorry I bought mine, it's very peppy and looks racy and cute, but I can't get comfortable with the transmission.


Best Features

The seat storage versatility, flat floor, and large rear door, and don't forget the MPG.


Worst Features

How about we start using some plastic on the interior, dashboard, etc that doesn't scratch so dang easy. I mean kids have toys you can throw across the road and they don't show a mark. But get into the front seat with a backpack or purse and see what the zipper does to your glovebox door. Nice.
