2009 Honda Fit Long-Term Road Test

2009 Honda Fit Sport: Attitude Change

November 04, 2009

I don't know how many nights I've driven our Honda Fit. Both this and the previous Fit we've owned. One thing has always stood out to me: the knobby shifter.


It kinda feels like a hot rod style pool ball shifter when palmed so I think giving it an Eight Ball shifter would "toughen up" its wimpy demeanor. Give it a fun attitude spark, even if in reality it's still the Chihuahua yapping at the big dogs.
