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


I've had my automatic Fit Sport for about 1 1/2 years and would not recommend it. Gas mileage is only about 28 in city. A/C bogs down engine power and can't cool consistently in heat of AZ summer - goes warm, cold, warm, cold. Inner upholstery is a lint magnet. Biggest peeve - Car is noisy and rattly over-all, with a major rattle inside the dash. Had this from the beginning, service can't seem to fix it. Visibility is poor with huge blind spots on front sides and very hard to see when backing up, especially if you are short like me. Tires go low on air, alignment goes out easily, engine making a high- pitched sound, service says they "can't hear it." Same for rubbing sound when turning left.

Best Features

Plenty of cup-holders front and back. Seats fold in different positions. Very roomy inside. Great looking exterior. Nice stereo system.

Worst Features

Fix rattling issues. Put in better upholstery. Do something about A/C system lugging down engine. Improve visibility - side curtain airbag area is a huge blind spot. Can't see when backing up either. Gas mileage not as advertised. Forced to buy tinting, had installed twice, both times bubbled w/lint
