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

Review

Best balance of comfort, performance, economy, utility and trouble free driving in this price range. The styling is Jazzy-Functional. Seats are supportive and comfortable for a 6 hour drive. With the A/T, highway noise is low at 70 mph (2500 rpm). Only gets noisy above 3000 rpm, which is apparently where the M/T cruises at 70 mph. Fun to drive quickly in the twisties- just keep it in S (1st-3rd) or use the paddle shifters and keep the rpm up. Only down-side is that it gets twitchy in 30 knot cross winds. This is my 5th Honda/Acura-none kept less than 8 years. That says a lot about overall satisfaction level.

Favorite Features

400 miles on $30 of gas is nice! The iPod in the glove compartment and the Nav system work very nicely together. Five speed A/T w. sport range and paddle shifters is seamlessly matched to the engine and provides a lot of options for best utilization of the available power.

Suggested Improvements

Ride is choppy on less than perfect surfaces. Swapping the Dunlop high performance tires for a more expensive Michelin or Bridgestone Grand Touring tire might help. All black interior with lots of plastic and fuzz-catcher seat fabric could be upgraded and would be worth an extra $500.
