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


Review

I love this car. It handles great and mileage is better than advertised. We get 34-41 mpg city. My husbands feet have trouble with the pedals. He says there is not enough room for his feet if he is wearing boots.

Review

I'm 60 years old and have owned a lot of different cars, including a corvette a 240z and various full size cars. My Honda fit is fun fun to drive and I'm getting without it totally broken in 32 to 37 mpg. it only has 900 hundred miles on it. mine is storm silver and looks great. you can't go wrong with the fit.


Best Features

the seats. the get up and go. the sound system. the fuel mileage

Review

Well, I really like this car. Runs smooth, very easy to get use to it. Even though, this is a small compact car, I still have the feeling of driving a very well built, very good quality vehicle. Before I purchased it I had visited other competitors in the same class and this car had definitely won the interior design contest for me. Gas mileage in the city is around 29/30, it's not bad, but not very impressive either. I recommend this car to anyone who wants to save money on the long run, prefers good quality, not looking for something fancy and doesn't have a big family.


Best Features

Very easy to fold the seats and make room even for a kayak. Very cool interior design. Paddle shifters, comfortable seats, handling, style.


Worst Features

More powerful engine and better A/C. The car is very sensitive for rough roads. Bigger fuel tank; it's about 8.5-9 gallon to fill it up. The front bumper due to its design is placed at a very low height and easy to curb it and damage it. Armrest!

Review

We're thrilled with our Fit sport. It has delivered great gas mileage, 30MPG around town, 33-38 MPG highway. It's interior is well thought out and comfortable. For an entry level car, the interior materials and quality are superb. The exterior design is excellent. The Sport trim gives the car a better look versus the standard model. While it's not a rocket, the engine has some pep and good torque. The hills in our area are no problem for motor. When the A/C is on, the small displacement of the engine robs some of the power. The handling is great for this little car. It's a firm ride, the lower profile tires don't help, but the trade off is you get crisp handling and grip. I like the steering too


Best Features

Interior design and flexibility. Exterior design on the Sport Trim. Handling and steering. Sound system.


Worst Features

Drivers side vanity mirror. A/C robs power from the small displacement engine. Optional interior colors. Integrated Blue Tooth option for cell phone.
