Honda's little roller skate!
By Yormsane on
Vehicle2007 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewThe Fit is a great urban runabout that was purchased to replace a 2002 Corolla. Reliability has been 100% over the first 30,000 miles. Comfortable front seats, easy gear change with the 5-speed stickshift. Engine is a bit short on torque, but then it's only a 1.5 liter. The OEM Dunlop tires were awful, and only lasted 18,000 rough and noisy miles. The replacement set of Coopers have been much smoother, quieter and better in the snow. Honda's fueling systems are so good that the car runs at 3,000 feet or 11,000 feet without any discernible difference. Would have bought the base model, but cruise control was not available - even as an option.
Best FeaturesSmooth fuel-efficient engine, that runs happily on Colorado's 85 octane gas; razor-sharp steering; cornering grip is limitless! Plenty of space inside; versatile rear seats & trunk area; solid build quality; tiny turning circle; makes the iPod sound great; 44 mpg on the highway at 70mph.
Worst FeaturesEvery car should have a dashboard temperature gauge. The Fit doesn't have one. WHY?? It also needs a choice of lighter-colored interior trims. The black seats and carpets show every spec of dirt, dust and fluff, and looked filthy after only a couple of days. Bring back the beige seats, please!
