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


Bought this car in Jan 2009 as a commuter vehicle (60mi round trip to work each day on back roads). Car looks great, has tons of interior room - 4 good sized adults fit comfortable in this vehicle - and has fun, peppy handling. 34mpg on average. Some freakishly bad luck-1 huge ice chunk and 2 low-speed fender benders (1 front, 1 back at less than 13 mph) resulted in over $7000 damage each time. We kid that if you look at the Fit mean, the doors fall off. The impact energy may be dissipated, but you're left with rubble after what should be a minor incident. I wouldn't put a young driver in this car and I'm selling as soon as it's paid off.

Best Features

Zippy handling, spacious interior, back wipers, cloth interior, comfortable seats

Worst Features

A real dog on hills, even with 1 passenger, headlights are inadequate, black interior, no adjustable intermittent wipers. Major damage after what should be minor impact.
