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


First Honda I have owned and am I disappointed. The ride is unacceptable in the northeast in the winter, you cannot even drink a coffee, not that there is good cup holder to put it in. The car wanders all over the freeway, it needs constant correction. It feels like the wind is blowing the car around when there is none. The headlights flicker randomly. The throttle raises just a little bit as you come to a stop. I am always stomping on the brake.The light indicator is behind the steering wheel.There is an annoying rattle in the dashboard in front of the steering wheel which goes away with the heater on. I have 3 tires leaking 6 to 10 lbs of air a month.I never noticed these on the demo model.

Best Features

Ipod setup is great, handles very well. Space is great, great view. AC and heater work well

Worst Features

A little compromise between ride and handling would be nice. Quality control improvements. The interior plastics are cheap. The wandering on the freeway is very tiring after a few hours, unacceptable.
