Nice car, pricey, terrible gas millage for the segment.
By famercado on


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


This is a good and reliable car, with lots of security features, comfortable for its size, looks very good inside and outside (especially steering wheel and rims), reliable and well assembled. I use it to commute from my home to the metro station, and for that purpose is fantastic. On the weekends we use my wife’s car which is more spacious. The gas millage is horrible for a compact car and considering the price and the trim (sport) it is way under equipped. It is very pricey compared to other brand’s similar cars.

Best Features

It’s a Honda! Reliability and resell value of Toyotas and Hondas are undeniable. It's made in Japan. Looks nice from outside. The dashboard is very nice. The steering wheel is very good looking and sporty. The breaks are fantastic, even though the rear ones are just drums. Security systems (abs, stability, airbags) seem to be very good. Being 6”2’ tall I fit in the Fit. The paddle shifters are something to brag about with your friends. The rims are really good looking. The visibility is great. Audio system and IPod capability are great.

Worst Features

Gas millage is terrible, larger cars do much better. I’m easy on the gas and get 28.59 MPG. You go into a highway and you can hear the hamsters in the hood working the life out of their bodies spinning their wheels but the car hardly moves. You need to hit the gas hard to move like a normal car and then get the MPG of a SUV. The automatic transmission shifts are very poorly synchronized. The engine and the interior are noisy. It doesn’t display the outside temperature, have Bluetooth, automatic headlights or lumbar support. No button to release the 5th door (trunk) on key. The back windshield wiper and water sprinklers are not very good. No ignition button, no light for the ignition.
