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


What a great car. The design is sharp and sporty. Handling is superb and road feel is good. The high steering ratio increases it's fun-to-drive appeal. I have driven faster cars, bigger cars, and more luxurious cars, but in the end the Honda Fit is a true purpose built vehicle that makes me want to drive to work. Road noise is typically Honda-like but the great audio system makes up for it. The negative consumer reviews thus far are absurd, It sounds like some drivers are let down that it is not a luxury- sport-utility-hybrid super vehicle. It merely takes aspects from each and puts it a great price point. No other vehicle in it's class will make you compromise less.

Best Features

Honda Reliability (29,000 Miles and not a single defect); Paddle shifters; excellent road view; 90 amp alternator (for your aftermarket audio toys); Magic Seats!; Uncommon vehicle on the road in some regions (who wants to drive a car that everyone else is driving?); Handling; Sport Mode

Worst Features

Needs an 'SI' model with a b16/k20. Stock tires aren't great. Upgrade to 205/50/16 and you will be rewarded with more crosswind resistance even greater stability and excellent improvement in Lateral G's.
