2010 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I selected the 5-speed manual as the automatic stole too much power from the engine. The manual offers surprising performance, smooth acceleration, and is averaging a 28-30 MPG around town. Very fun to drive and has good handling for small car. It can be loud at highway speeds due to road noise and high engine RPM. No problems with front seat comfort as others mention I am 6'2". The rear magic seat is amazing. With everything folded down, the fit will swallow an unbelievable amount of cargo, surpassing many small SUVs. Audio system is excellent. Interior design is simple and functional, but does not feel cheap. No other small car can provide so much value and versatility.


Best Features

Fun to drive. Rear magic seat. Audio system. Value for money / low operating costs. Build quality.


Worst Features

Should have 6th gear to reduce engine RPM at highway speeds. Shifting and engine response can be clumsy at times during light acceleration, but is turbine smooth when you step on it. Would have expected slightly better MPG due to light weight and small engine.

2010 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

A long time Honda owner, I just traded a Ridgeline, and I couldn't be happier. I put a lot of miles on my cars so I needed better fuel mileage. This car gets better than advertised. First tank 40 mpg (1/2 city/hwy). I used the a/c a lot on my second tank and got 37. I drive with a light foot, keep it in sport mode and shift up often, can't help to think what this car's mileage and performance could be w/ a DSG . This car is screwed together well. very tight with no squeaks or rattles. Stereo is nice quality and I got a few things that the Ridgeline didn't offer in 2008, like telescoping steering wheel, fog lights, and daytime running lights. For the price this Honda has a winner here.


Best Features

Sport mode, tilt/telescoping wheel, i-pod connect, extremely versatile interior. I also like the overall unique look.


Worst Features

6 -speed DSG dual clutch transmission. This alone would shave weight, 2 seconds off 0-60 times and get the mpg well into the 40's. That would make this car truly a 'Sport'

2010 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

The Fit is perfect for city and occasional short trip on the highway. With only 185/55/16 tires and narrow stance it easily gets blown around at highway speeds, the 1.5 liter motor works really hard and noisy just to get up 65 mph highway speeds. It does not like going 75 mph. My sport model lacks a lot of amenities. No floor mats, no door sill protectors, no cargo cover, cheap interior materials, lacks quality materials compared to the civics. Honda really skimp on this bare and basic model car. For the same price, I could have gotten the civic lx 4 door. I really think this sport model with automatic should have an msrp of around 15,000 tops and sold for maybe around 13,000 or so easily


Best Features

It is a small car with good utility and it looks nice from the outside and good re-sale value. I would only recommend this car if you are only looking for something to scoot around in the city, definitely not a highway cruiser, get a civic for that. I only bought it for fun but planning to sell soon


Worst Features

for msrp of 18k or so, honda should have standard carpeted floor mats, cargo cover, door sill protectors, center arm rest, better storage instead of numerous ridiculous useless cup holders. put in a 1.8 L civic motor, my 2010 civic gets 35mpg and it weighs more. Come on Honda get with it.

2010 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased a 2010 Fit Sport with automatic. Very reliable auto. Great gas mileage (37 MPG). Acceleration not very good but not terrible. Engine tries hard but it is only a 117 HP auto. Holds the road well at 75 MPH. Driver's seat needs more support for comfort. Interior very good and I like the way the back seats fold completely flat.

Bigger, less noisy engine. Better front seats.

Review

I have only had my Fit for a week, but on a mix of driving it is getting 37.4 mpg according to the instruments. Tomorrow I will fill it up for the first time and calculate the mpg. My wife has a Fit and over the past two months it has proven to be a fine little vehicle. The Honda attention to detail is really nice, I could not find an assembly flaw. The electric power steering will take some getting use to, but I enjoy driving the car. The Honda dealer was a joy after many bad car dealers I have experienced. The instruments say it is getting 50 mpg at 50 mph and 40 mpg at 60 mph. Really amazing and much better than I would have expected before seeing how my wife's was.


Best Features

Miles per gallon! Flawless assembly. Smooth running engine. Low insurance rates.


Worst Features

Satellite radio option without navigation package.
