2011 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback w/Navigation (1.5L 4cyl 5A)


I just got my second Fit; an upgrade from a 2010 Base to a 2011 Sport w/ Nav.

Before that I was a Volvo guy, so...

The Fit is reliable, fun, comfortable, versatile, and easy to drive as well as inexpensive to own. The mini-sport-hatchback factor was hard to resist in the 2010. In the upgraded 2011, it's spectacular. It is worth noting a Fit bested a Ferrari in a lane-change maneuver at over 70mph. Suffice it to say I look forward to traffic-free exit ramps.

I have to say, most of the negative reviews of this car seem to not make any sense. If they're unhappy with something, didn't they look at/drive/test the car before they bought it? Bizarre.

In sum: Fit + Me = Happy Happy, Joy Joy.

Best Features

Paddle shifts, Magic seat, easy to use Navigation with voice control, super baby-Sumo-wrestler exterior kit, bright fogs and alloy wheels.

Worst Features

Remember that most foreign companies that make subcompact cars for other markets make them much nicer for other markets than the US gets them, given our usual penchant for much larger vehicles. Perhaps fuel prices will continue to make people reconsider how much space they really need... All of the things I would suggest: a sunroof, automatic climate control, leather interior, and Bluetooth/Telematics - are available on the Japanese-market Fit. Only time - and popularity - will tell whether they'll let us have that stuff over here.
