2009 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)

Review

Wanted to downsize a little from my 2007 Acura TL-Type S. Test drove an 2008 Fit to see what was all the hype. It was great. Couldn't wait for the 2009. Went to my local dealer and put a deposit on one even before they came in... the car was that much in demand. Glad I did. It is amazing. Not as fast (or flashy) as the Acura, BUT, it is so nimble and just plain fun to drive. The folding rear seats (up and flat) allow for an AMAZING amount of room! Don't miss the Acura at all. Average just around 37-38 mpg in city driving... and sometimes I really push using the paddle shifters :-). Test drove many cars before I settled on the Fit. Easily outclasses ANY car in its class. Get one!

Great city car, not bad all-around

2009 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback w/Navigation (1.5L 4cyl 5A)

Review

We got this looking for a cheaper and more versatile replacement for a Lexus IS, and have been very pleased. Fit-and-finish are excellent despite some cheap materials. We've been getting ~30 MPG in city driving, and got 33 on a highway trip with two adults, two kids in car seats, and luggage. The transmission needs to downshift to maintain 70 MPH on steeper grades, but does so pretty unobtrusively. More hamsters under the hood wouldn't hurt. Road noise is OK for the price. Low-speed handling is excellent, but the Fit feels tall in tight turns at speed. Navi is very easy to use. The USB connector works fine with iPhone and a 1st-gen iPod nano.

2009 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)

Review

I have owned 12 vehicles since 1975, both foreign and domestic, cars, SUV's and pick up trucks. I purchased a 2009 Honda Fit Sport AT with the paddle shifters. What a great economy car! Owned it for 30 days and the fuel stats are super. Worst MPG was 29.9 with the first tank of gas and that was mostly stop and go St. Louis metro driving. Overall mileage is 38.4 MPG after 900 miles. One highway only driving trip averaged 44.9 MPG while the computer estimated 46.9 MPG. I have 60% city/urban and 40% interstate driving. Paddle shifters are great, radio reception superb, picking up many weak and distant stations in St. Louis market. Interior space and comfort are tops. Engine's smooth and quiet.

Recently bought an 09 Fit and so far I'm loving it! Avg. mileage is 39.6; inside is very room. Blue dashboard gauge lights are nice as well as the stereo system. Miss having a center console.

Review

2 weeks and 1K miles later, we love the car. 34 mpg first tank and better thereafter, to almost 40. Very smooth, peppy, and comfortable. Surprisingly roomy, but we're keeping our Sienna.

Well pleased

2009 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)

Review

I did lots of research and it is a good car just like the experts say. I am 5'1" and the size fits me great. My husband is 6' and he has to put the seat all the way back to be comfortable but we go on 400 mile trips and he is fine. I get 39 mpg rural miles and about 36 in the city (Atlanta). I love it and even though the price is a little higher for the class you do get what you pay for and I have the sport and no other car in the category has the bang for the buck. My advice is to buy it if you want a car in the small, economy class.

2009 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)

Review

Originally I had my doubts, I'd never owned a Honda before. I had a mazda6 and my husband has a CX-9, I always liked small cars, but know that we have 2 children I wasn't sure if it would be a great choice. But it was! I love the car, is really fun to drive, and my 4 year old get in/off the car by herself (she couldn't w/ the other 2 cars). I also have an infant and the cars seat fits perfectly between the front and rear seats. Interior wise Fit gives you more features than the Corolla or Yaris (which I also considered). Exterior look it's modern! fun, fun fun. I love it and all my doubts are gone!

My Honda Fits!

2009 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I eagerly awaited the arrival of the 09 Fit because, at 6'6", I just wasn't comfortable in the old Fit without telescopic steering wheel. When I showed up at the dealer, they said are you sure you want such a small car. They recommended someone at my height would be much happier in an Accord. Well, they were all astonished to see how well I Fit into this small car. And I drove off with my mountain bike safely stowed in the back. This car is amazing value; I love driving it compared to my previous Audi A6 mainly because it sips fuel. But also it's just plain fun to drive. My advice: if you can handle manual, go for it. The automatic felt much more sluggish for some reason

Tight Fit for Tall Folks

2009 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I downsized from a larger, more powerful vehicle, and while I love the functionality, gas mileage, and looks of the Fit, in the month and 1,600 miles I've had it, I haven't been able to get really comfortable in the driver's seat. I'm 6'5" and the road test seemed okay, but after sitting in it a while, I sure wish the seat was more adjustable and went farther back. The center armrest should be standard, too (and lower, and designed for use with a manual transmission; the current one will not be installed by Honda on a MT). Otherwise, though, I think it's a great little car, and runs well both around town and on the highway. It's moderately zippy, has a great turning radius, and is open.
