1st Honda, Very Disappointed
By UnFit4Me on


2008 Honda Fit 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Rattly, horrid in snow, terrible AC/heat venting, windshield is impossible to keep clear in snow/ice, headlight covers hard to keep clear, terrible visibility, tire system needs dealer reprogramming for snow tires, poor door lock system, expensive key, ground clearance too low, fishtails in snow horribly, center vents TOO HIGH, blasting air in eyes, heat and A/C insufficient, gas pedal odd angle and stressful to keep in one position, rear window in rain, in short, in 5 months, too many dislikes - will be selling soon.

Best Features

35-40 MPG, seats fold easily, price, quiet for small car.

Worst Features

Not sure what to say. I'd say scrap the design and start over. I've owned many cars, but this is my first Honda. I am very disappointed. The car might be good in sunny suburbia, but it's horrible in the winter. I can't get warm in the car without air blasting in my eyes. Disappointed.
