2009 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)


I have owned this car for a year. Very efficient design,fuel economy is good but not great (the computer overestimates fuel economy by about 5 mpg). Ive never experienced any issue with trucks or side winds. The car will haul most things, and is almost like a mini suv. Not one mechanical issue, and the powertrain is very solid. It is overall a very good commuter car. It is not a car for long road trips due to the driver's seats. The ipod connector is hidden, and works well. I wish i had the navigation system as using the standard display to operate the ipod is tedious. The nose is very low and it is very easy to drag on some driveways.

Best Features

cargo space, utility, driving characteristics, easy to park. This car is really more of a city car than a road car. It excels in town, and a 30 mile commute is not a problem at all. The cup holders in the dash are odd at first, but that is seriously a good place for a large drink.

Worst Features

I really like this car, but the front seats are awful. The headrests are in the way, and I find it very difficult to find a comfortable driving position. As another reviewer noted, if you have any lower back issues, take a long test drive.
