2009 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback w/Navigation (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


This car feels very roomy for such a small car for both people and cargo. Average is around 37 mph overall. On trips can exceed 400 miles (10 gallons) on a tank. Steering is fast, borders on twitchy over 65 mph. Handling is excellent with rear breaking loose slightly with aggressive driving. Suspension is somewhat too stiff for bad New England roads. Acceleration more than adequate with manual trans. Front sometimes touches at end of driveways--be careful. Engine noisy over 70 mph. 65 mph is sweet spot. A/C a little weak, but doesn't sap much power. Controls work well and are easy to use.

Best Features

Fuel economy. Sporty handling. Interior room. Overall quality. Voice activation on Nav system. Excellent radio reception both AM and FM. Ability to store lots of stuff right in back of driver using magic seat. Fits in tiny parking spaces. No major weaknesses.

Worst Features

Include outside temp. Improve AM radio fidelity. Improve clutch feel. Squelch engine noise over 65 mph. Decouple Nav. system and stability control options. Include center console and floor mats on higher models. Add fuel door release. More POI on Nav system. More coverage for sun shades. Add window tint.
