2011 Honda Fit Hatchback 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The car rides very sporty and handles very well on the road. Good acceleration and braking. Very efficient fuel wise. Can put much larger things in the hatchback cargo area when back seats are pushed forward. Much larger cargo area than regular sedans. A fun car to drive.

2011 Honda Fit Hatchback 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I love my Honda Fit in every way except the comfort of the driver's seat. I've actually driven without the headrest in; that's how much it hurts my neck. Although I had intended to drive this car until it wore out, I am going to be selling it in the next couple of months and buying something less painful. BTW, I am 5'7.


Best Features

The storage options are exceptional and the car is fun to drive.


Worst Features

Change the head restraint system so that it is adjustable other than up and down

Have 38,000+ on my Honda Fit.
Base Model.
The stereo sucks.
Upgrade to get tweeters, a better system.
Lot of wind noise.
Gets a bit much at times.
Driving is fun for
manual transmission.
Good gas mileage.
Lot of space in the car to haul your junk

2011 Honda Fit Hatchback Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I've been a Honda owner since 1985.
I've had 5 Hondas in that time.
I bought the Fit based on past experience with Hondas.
But there are things I wish I'd known.
Like how the blower motor for the heater/AC is too high an ampage and blows resistors (and isn't covered under any warranty), and how the fog lights on the sport model can be easily cracked by road debris and allow water in (requiring a replacement at $361 each to pass inspection), and the tires are an odd size that they cost a fortune to buy (that's if you can find them).
There are some obvious design flaws that need to be addressed.


Best Features

i love the way the seats fold and the different configurations. i've helped a lot of folks move and moved my daughter and all her art supplies to and from college for two of her four years now. it's amazing how much i can pack in the little thing. i love the gas mileage (i had a 2001 CRV 4WD before and barely got 20 on a good day -- i'm averaging around 32 on the fit and i probably have as much room if not more than in the CRV). seats are pretty comfortable (i've done 9 hour drives) but very little adjustment can be made if they weren't.


Worst Features

poor design on the blower motor, fog lamps, odd tire size. paint chips and scratches very easily. very low to the ground and sometimes difficult to get over speed bumps (even at low speeds) without scraping the bumper or underside. forget driving through puddles. easily blown off the road by wind. road noise is high. can adjust the seats very much for comfort. still don't understand the flappy paddles -- i had a manual transmission in the CRV so the flappy paddles seem almost childlike ....

2011 Honda Fit Hatchback Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Less than 3 years old and have already had to have valves adjusted and the heater blower motor replaced!
Definitely reliability issues.


Best Features

Great gas mileage, until the valves go out of adjustment. Literally half the gas mileage at that point. Love the way it parks anywhere!


Worst Features

Cupholder under the console? Pretty much unusable except for coin holders.
