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


...it gets a whole lot better. This is a very inexpensive car for a Honda, so I am not averse to fixing what I don't like. Odd driving position! I splay my knees out to the sides and use the cruise control as much as possible. I still grumble though. No dead pedal! Zeta dead pedal, HIGHLY recommended. No center armrest! I bought a pricey JDM Honda center console; inexpensive console/armrest addons are available. 22K miles so far and the car is still a pure hoot to drive, which is a big deal for me; boring cars stink. I get close to 40MPG without trying too hard. And it's still cute as a bug. I'm keeping mine!

Best Features

Fun to drive factor, economy of operation, expected reliability/longevity, interior space and versatility, active aftermarket for performance and appearance doodads, did I mention it's fun to drive?

Worst Features

Design the ergonomics for American sizes, put an LSD option out there (so I can get it for mine), better wiper blades, a tad more noise dampening material.
