The perfect small car
By tommyone1 on


2012 Honda Fit 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Flawless reliability 3 years in. Not sure why some people get disappointing MPG. Maybe they drive like a maniac, have upgraded to wide tires, and carry a lot of weight... I get an avg of 39 MPG from this awesome car! The manual trany shifting and the clutch are both super light and easy and smooth. But I'd prefer a lower ratio for 5th gear so not to waste gas when going over 70 (and to quiet the engine) The interior loudness is less than in previous years. The cargo space is incredible, including under the rear seats. The gas tank being under the front seat means you can't adjust height, but I'm now happier sitting higher than I used to--better visibility, except the wide front left pillar

Best Features

easy shifting cargo room great MPG fun to drive and can accelerate well (as long as you get the manual transmission)

Worst Features

lower gear ratio for 5th gear location of USB audio-in cable narrower front pillars
