2009 Honda Fit Sport: Little Rascal

April 14, 2009

OK, I have to admit, last night was my first time in our new Honda Fit Sport. I haven't really been avoiding it as much as I've managed to choose other cars for the night. But most of our staffers like it so I figured it was high time to give it a go.

It's like a naughty little boy: somewhat untidy and mischievous but not a bad kid. And you have to drive it. There's something to be said for having to engage with your vehicle.

I found all three pedals to be positioned strangely low to the floor and they felt mushy. But the clutch engages quickly and is easy on the leg muscles. The wobbly shifter has loooong throws. Where's 5th gear? Oh, hello, over there. How's the weather?

Overall, it's a fun little devil.
