2017 Honda Fit Hatchback EX 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 6M)
The Fit is a cool little econobox that in the 6 speed manual is peppy and fun to drive. There really is an amazing amount of space inside and lots of glass to provide a spacious view. Kudos to Honda for making such a little car seem so big. The laws of physics can't be denied though, so there are drawbacks. The car is very light, so bumpy roads seem a lot bumpier. Also, high speed driving comes with a bit too much road noise - there really isn't a lot of Fit between you and the road. The gas tank is only 10 gallons, but when you're getting 37 mpg highway as we are, that's enough to last for awhile. The middle trim EX has a fun sunroof, and a decent 6 speaker sound system. The 2018's have a more sophisticated infotainment systems than our '17 does, but even the '17 covers the bluetooth / usb basics.
This a nice car, only thing is the frame around the windshield makes a huge blind spot for the driver. That is my only fault with the car. Its the navigation system. Got this car in December 2017 had wonderful graphics and the whole lot and now I get a map and lucky to get any place. I am told I never had Garmin navi but Here. Well I had a loaner car 2018 Fit Navi with a Here system and it had the same sort of system as Garmin. Took two days to get a new tire by the way. But I am really disappointed that the dealer or Honda will not help me out with my navigation. Just buy a Garmin if you want navigation.
A couple of big things I have noticed are the buggy and slow Android auto. Its a cool feature but lord it is bulky and unresponsive. There are only 2 USB ports and if you plug your phone in just to charge it it will force you to try to use Android auto. The MPG is much lower than the estimates, but so far a around 850 miles driving in the city my average is 27.3MPG. I also have been using premium gas hoping it would help get to the 30MPG promised but haven't hit it yet. The car is also a little noisy, there is a plastic rattling sound from the parts surrounding the engine. Other than those things this car has been a lot of fun to have as my first car purchase, it's got good pickup, good brakes, the safety features are really helpful and overall pretty happy with it.
