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


I wanted the Insight but the Fit was roomier and cheaper. I had to pay the extra for the sport of course as the base didn't have cruise or keyless entry. I like the styling, roominess and the magic seat. Reviewers have said the mpg calculator is optimistic to the tune of 2 or 3 mpg, yikes! that means I'm only getting 26 mpg around town and I don't even have a lead foot so I can't really praise the fuel economy in my case. The thing that bugs me most about it is the low front clearance, my son pulled out of the drive and pulled out the front body panel. I was able to push most of it back in but it has popped back out several times since, when there's a dip in the road and now it's all scraped

Best Features

Exterior styling, interior room, folding back seats.

Worst Features

Raise front clearance, cruise control, keyless entree, stability control and power mirror on base model, center console, more comfortable driver's seat, offer plug in hybrid.
