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


I bought the base, manual model because I'm cheap, and I love to drive manual transmissions. I had good luck with my 2002 Honda Civic, but wanted the versatility of a 5 door. It's a hoot to drive, light steering, clutch. 40 MPG highway Fantastic seat maneuverability makes space behind driver usable in many different ways. Build quality is excellent. Surprisingly quiet for a small car with high revving engine.

Best Features

Aux jack, AC in base model, endless pockets/cupholders, seat system, headroom.

Worst Features

The entire car industry, including Honda, should be condemned for coupling safety options (traction control) with non safety options (navigation system). This practice needs to end. Aren't power windows the answer to a problem that never existed? Give me a manual window option.
