Purchased Honda Fit 8/2006. LOCK: After 2 years, the driver's lock stopped working. Honda did not stand by the lock. Passenger lock also failing. BRAKES: Passenger brake caliper stuck causing the pad to wear down on that side only. Honda fixed it and promised it wouldn't happen again. This time, slider sticking, brake pad on passenger worn again! VISIBILITY: The side curtain airbags cause two very large blind spots for people my size (under 5'3"). HANDLING: The car has a high center of gravity. Wind causes the car to dance a bit on the highway. BODY INTEGRITY: Any kind of minor collision causes this car to crumple and the bumper to come off! The car is very boring.
I do love the interior of the car -- room for a lot of stuff. I also love the safety features that came standard with the car.
1.) More power ports -- there is only one power port!!! Ipod Docking? 2.) BODY INTEGRITY! Come on Honda! 3.) Better locks -- geez!!! 4.) Lower center of gravity 5.) More comfortable seats 6.) Tires that last longer 7.) Fuel economy. 8.) Better visibility
