Best little car around. by Senior citizen in Yakima. Ron on 04/29/2009. Trim: 2009 Honda Fit Sport 5-Spd AT, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Wew like everything abot the Fit Sports. At 35 miles per gallon highway to the 30 MPG around town. With front and rear sway bars it corners like asports car, and the paddle shifters up and down located under each side of the stgeering wheel is perfect. I think the paddle shifter comes from the Honda racing in Le Mans type races. Our battery went dead the first week, but that was not the cars problem, but a defective battery. The electric throttle control is immediate, when applying the gas peddle, and breaking is great. I will tow this car behind my motorhome with all four wheels on the ground. Fun car to drive.
Cons: Wi the sport 16 inch wheels it rides a little hard. I use to drive a Buick and was spoiled.
Overall review: Get regular manufacturers suggested service and jse synthetic oil, and it will run for 25,000 miles be fore needing an overhall.

The WOW Car by Aidaray from Fort Myers Florida on 11/25/2008. Trim: 2009 Honda Fit Sport 5-Spd AT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The overall performance is great. It makes the young element of the driver come to life. Very eye appealing. Great on gas, so much I forget when I last put gas in my car. Great handling. Honda gets a 10 from this driver that has driven some of the top performers in the cars industry.
Cons: Needs better pickup.
Overall review: My 2009 Honda Fit is the envy of all. Fantastic ride for the size. Great on gas. I recommend this car to everyone.

I didn't like it personally at first and mainly bought it for my wife..but- by Don Stapp on 11/08/2008. Trim: 2009 Honda Fit Sport 5-Spd AT w/Nav, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Gas mileage! The driver side front view - can see clearly ahead, almost 30% more visibilty then all the sedans I own in the past. The NAV and the USB interface 6 speaker system. The Silver color!
Cons: Cloth door panal; It gets dirty fast. I would rather have vinal available for the high end model I purchase.
Overall review: I didn't like it personally at first and mainly bought it for my wife..but after owning/drivimg it for a week - I fell in Love with it. I also own a Nissan "Z" and I find my self having allot of fun with this lottle car! I recommend it for anyone that likes to have fun and get a 37.4 MPG. I paid Premium for this 20K+ comes with 3M plastic laminated protect-coating in the front.

Outstanding by Flying Finn, Sparks, NV on 10/23/2008. Trim: 2009 Honda Fit Sport 5-Spd AT w/Nav, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Good looking, sporty vehicle...a best buy for the money. Averaging 33 mpg, nice navigation system, auto tran w/paddle shifters if you decide you want to drive it like a stick shift. Fog lights, alloy wheels, 5 star crash rating, Honda quality and Honda resale value, all for $19K. I have not owned or know of another vehicle that can top this Fit for the price. You can't go wrong with this purchase.
Cons: Engine is not too strong, but I'll take 33mpg combined over engine power anyday.
Overall review: Honda hits a grand slam with the redesigned 2009 Fit. I currently own a Honda Odyssey and used to own a Honda Civic, Ridgeline and Accord. All of my Honda's have been trouble free and their resale values have been outstanding, I guess that is why I keep purchasing Honda vehicles. For potential buyers, just be careful at any dealership. It does not matter if it is a Honda, Toyota, Ford, or Chevy dealer, they all are going to try to get the most money out of you on any sale, regardless of vehicle brand.

Perfect "Fit" for me by CoCoBlaine from Birmingham on 10/17/2008. Trim: 2009 Honda Fit Sport 5-Spd AT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Looks much better than any other car in its price range, ridiculous cargo capacity via folding the seats in a number of ways, usb hookup for your mp3 that lets you control your ipod or even a thumb drive loaded with music through the factory stereo, cupholders galore (10), paddle shifters behind the steering wheel for when you need a little more get up & go, huge amount of glass (visibility is great), air bags around the entire cabin except cargo area, great MPG and it tells you what your averaging per tank, besides oil changes and topping off fluids there is no scheduled service or maintenance for the first 100,000 miles, my 3 year old tells me how much he likes my car everytime were in it.
Cons: Interior is like a vaccuum for dust, lint, etc. (I also smoke in it occassionally which doesn't help my dust free cause any).
Overall review: The best car purchase I've made in my life, you just feel proud driving it around especially when you look at the gauge and see your averaging 35 mph in your $18,000 car. Plus, it's a Honda so I know I can depend on it.
