2008 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This Sport Fit is just great. I have as much front driving room as I had in a Mercury Sable. Just excellent for a 2 person car. I love it cause the room in the back when the seats are folded down is awesome. This little gas saver is loaded from a base sticker. I mean everything. Stereo is the best sound I have ever heard in a car. If you want to drive in a manual mode in an automatic transmission you can control that with a touch of a steering wheel button. You can gear down fast to a stop. I have had it up against so similar cars I will not mention and this one has class to it. The Sport I speak of. use to pay $65.00 per fill up now only $38.00 for the same distance. Buy one you will enjoy.


Best Features

Look you will see. It is awesome.


Worst Features

It is a little rougher ride than a sedan but the gas savings is worth the ride

2008 Honda Fit 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

On my first tank in my 5 speed I got 34.5 mpg and that included some mountain driving - with plenty of power. My second and third tanks have been slightly over 40mpg mixed driving. I don't know where they get the EPA estimate of 28-34. I'm also very happy with how fun it is to drive (sport-car feel), the great gas mileage, and the interior space that feels like it rivals my wife's Escape. Besides much better gas mileage than advertised, my 5 speed with the 1.5 liter engine has more spunk than my big old 6 cylinder Explorer does (or ever did). When some say the Fit doesn't have enough power I'm amazed unless maybe they have the automatic which isn't quite as good on power or mpg.


Best Features

Gas mileage, power, sporty driving experience, interior room, safety features and rating, and feeling like I'm doing the right thing I can (or best I can for today's world) to reduce fuel consumption.


Worst Features

I had to build my own center armrest, and perhaps they could offer a few more options just for fun.

2008 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This is my sixth 'new' Honda purchase, all others were Civics, both manual and AT,and I've never experienced such low mileage,in spite of driving in the same manner for 35 years. I average 20 (TWENTY!) mpg, with city/ highway combined. On one 'semi' long trip the mileage climbed to 24. Now, I am still below the supposed 1,000 mile 'break in' point, but do plan to have the vehicle examined, as I purchased it for its size, ease and mileage! GUARANTEED? Should the mileage PROBLEM be solved, I'd recommend this vehicle highly. There are options one can purchase to solve any concerns listed below. Most owners report great mileage. The MT FIT gets up to 40,as DOES my 1991/MT Honda Civ-140K!


Best Features

Love the BLUE color. Easy to zoom into a prkg space from the opposite direction. Head room is exceptional! I am 5'9" (kinda tall for a female), and much of it is 'torso'. I've 5 more " of head space~ more than ANY of my previous 5 NEW Civ's! LOVE the cargo sp. Don't lv bk seats down unless abs nec! ;D


Worst Features

I would love more storage and a flatter front so that my cell phone could rest easily and be on speaker so that I do not have to wear a dumb hands free set. And I won't. I live in CA AND WA, so the rules are the same. Wow, no more space for a lengthy commentary. Bummer!

2008 Honda Fit 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Since 1991 I have only driven Honda cars. I have never had any major repairs. This Fit measures up and surpasses my expectations. It is an incredible small car. I get 32 mpg in or out of traffic, virtually no road noise and the performance is equal to anything else I have driven.


Best Features

Headroom, acceleration and the feel or a larger auto


Worst Features

Speed control for the base model

2008 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I now have 5,000 miles on this car. I've tried to give it the benefit of doubt, but I am so frustrated with it. The engine has an annoying knock/tick on acceleration, so much, that bystanders on the street acknowledge it. Of course, the Honda mechanics don't hear it. This Fit is a squirrelly beast in the snow, and is a frightening plow, rather than "fun to drive". Having lived in Alaska for many years, I do know how to drive in snow! Luckily I no longer live there. The paint quality is less than "quality". I have the Blackberry Pearl, sport model. I highly suggest choosing a Civic over a Fit, if handling, noise, and fuel economy are important to you. I miss my Civic, LOTS!


Best Features

Cargo space


Worst Features

Raise the frame, solve noise problems, improve paint.
