Fit not for me
By Justin Slocum on
2009 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback w/Navigation (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
I purchased a Honda Fit Sport with the 5 speed manual gear box and overall it's a very solid car but I traded it in for the following reasons.. The steering is way too quick and downright squirrely at highway speeds.. Around town it's not really a problem but on the highway it's annoying. You're constantly keeping the car on track. Secondly, at highway speeds it seems to be very susceptible to crosswinds because of its weight and body design. I would have to white knuckle the thing going on long trips with it. Lastly, it's geared too short. You're constantly shifting and the engine drones at highway speeds. Traded up to a civic ex coupe. I wouldn't advise buying this car at all.
Reliable, Good gas mileage and tons of space.
Bigger tires, change the steering dynamics, Do something about the crosswinds susceptibility.
