I had a head-on accident with a large truck doing 35 to 40 MPH in my 2009 Honda Fit.
I came out of the accident with only bruising from the seat belts, and a cracked sternum (breastbone).
The air bags worked the way they were supposed to.
Family members who saw the actual damage and a friend who saw pics of the car damage are amazed I was not killed in the accident.
I am now looking for another Honda Fit.
I strongly recommend it for safety, as well as all other categories.
The car handled well.
I liked the extra room I had when I put the back seats down.
The safety features worked VERY well when they were needed.
The only improvement I would have wanted to my Fit is an adjusting telescoping wheel.
