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


Review

We truly enjoy the performance of this vehicle. Even though Honda Fit has a small engine, it picks up speed easily. We have no problem recommending this car to our friends.


Best Features

It is a well designed driving machine.


Worst Features

Will be nice if there is an arm rest on passenger side.

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


Review

Just bought my Honda Fit Sport-it was love at first sight. Great car, Honda has at least a 9+, in this one. Interstate driving is a breeze, When I started looking I was gong to check out the Toyota Yaris, but stopped by the Honda dealer first, and that is as far as I got. It rides great, is sporty looking, and has great fuel mileage and it's not even broke in yet.


Best Features

Style, inside and out. MPG.


Worst Features

Center console or at least a passenger arm rest.

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


Review

Have purchased 09 Fit Sport (auto). Never feel any regrets to have it. With 500 miles on it and the fuel economy is exceptional: 39/44.5/42.5 - Hope (and believe) to get new MPG of 40/48/45 pretty soon. Would recommend this new (2009) Fit to anyone who really like the big saves.


Best Features

Outstanding handling/performance- Pretty fun to drive- Spaciousness- Looks cute and beauty both in/out- The most important thing: Superior Fuel Economy (Exceeded EPA Rating).


Worst Features

Missing center console and passenger armrest. No Auto A/C. Sun Visors would not really cover/helpful (too short/small).

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


Review

We purchased our base fit in February and at first the mpg were okay (about 30 mpg). As we became familiar with the car and became diligent in watching the mileage bar and adjusting our style of driving we steadily over time increased our mpg. Last fill-up we got 36.5 mpg comb. city/highway. This car is like a hybrid without batteries. It is unbelievable. The only problem I see is that the mpg bar should be used only as a guide. When we got 36.5 the mpg bar said we were getting 40 mpg. On this tankful it is registering 42 mpg on the mpg bar. So we're probably getting 38-39 mpg comb. This car really should get a tax credit like hybrids it is that good. We have put on 2,300 mi.


Best Features

This car mpg. feature is very helpful in showing people how they can adjust their ways of driving and help your wallet and environment at the same time. This car was rated 1 out of 37 in one of the testing groups and deserves it. I wished the carpeting was a better quality though.


Worst Features

If Honda made a hybrid Fit as I read about in one of the publications I was reviewing I think they would corner the market. I would think a hybrid Fit would get in the 50 mpg range, since we are getting in the upper 30's. I would think it would outdo the Insight and Prius.

Review

I researched this car for over a year and waited for 2009 Fit Sport. Purchased it mainly for fuel economy, fun to drive and low cost of ownership. After 3300 miles the car has gotten progressively worse mileage as it's broken in, not better. I can't see how people achieve such high mileage figures. Great little car in every way but greatly disappointed in fuel mileage.


Best Features

Good interior. Superb visibility. Great steering and handling. Spacious inside for such a small car. Paddle shifters.


Worst Features

No center console. Better mileage. Better air conditioning system.
