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


Even though I'm not crazy about the looks, I do enjoy driving the car...for me it's comfortable, accelerates well, and gets very good mileage. Recently the battery wouldn't start, and after reading other forums regarding this issue, I see that there are many, many people with even more mileage and less that have had either the same problem (battery not charging), or battery dieing within less than 2 years! That is why I gave it a low reliability rating. The battery is not replaceable either (no one seems to make a similar size so one is stuck with the poor quality battery).

Best Features

mileage, response, great for parking in cities, roomy trunk

Worst Features

Honda needs to acknowledge the battery problem and act responsibly by recalling all Honda Fits that have this battery and replace it with one suitable to power this car for more than 1-2 years! and a battery size that one can replace from other manufacturers so the driver has a choice!
