Pros: Roomy interior
Cons: Blind spot on drivers side partially blocked by headrest
Advice: Buy it. :)This is my first car and I could not have been happier with my decision to go with the Fit. I purchased the automatic sport model in blue (yesterday actually!) I am already in love with my car. It looks amazing and handles extremely well. It looks small, but it's extremely roomy on the inside. I've had it up to 85 with no problems. It does get a bit buzzy, but I can't feel it through the seats and it's such an upgrade from my last POS I can definitely live with a little buzzing at 65/70 mph. I bought the automatic because I haven't learned how to drive stick as of yet, and I found this out after I bought it: When you're in regular drive mode you can use the shifting paddles to upshift and downshift, and the car can sense when you're not using them anymore and goes back into automatic mode. I've only owned it a day and this car makes me deleriously happy. :)
Pros: Paddle shifts
Cons: Protruding fog lights
Advice: Buy two of them if you have the moneyA car that is entertaining, truly exciting, and is much improved than the first model. Great for the family,lots of room inside and so easy to drive. No other car gives so much for the buck,thankyou Honda.
Pros: Great on gas and very roomy
Cons: Felt generic
Advice: Take a couple long test drives before you sign.The Fit has it's good and bad assets. I really want to stress to anyone that has ANY MEDICAL ISSUES WITH YOUR LOWER BACK OR WRIST DO NOT BUY!!!! I bought my Fit 6/2006 and I a selling in 10/2006 with 4200 miles driven I have carpal tunnel and arthris in both wrists. Within 5 minutes of driving I am in tears from the pain. It is something with how the steering wheel is positioned. I can not find a comfortable place for my hands to be. The seats make it worst. Within in a few minutes of resting my arms by my side , they go numb.The bucket seat are hard and you only get 2 options to make adjustments (forward/back)(up/down). My commute every morning is 45 minutes and if I forget to change my seating position serveral times during the drive, I can barely get out of the car. I do not experience this with any of our current cars. I would say this would be a great car for College kids. It's compat with room, great on gas and it is cute. Just make sure you fly home for the holidays.
Pros: Paddle Shifters/Stereo-Mp3 compatible
Cons: There was nothing.....
Advice: SPORT all the WAY!!!!What can I say? I love Honda. I have owned 2 in the past. When I was originally looking for another Honda I was determined to get a CRV as I was currently driving a Hatchback and wanted something a little bigger. My dad was the one who told me about the Fit because I had never heard about them. I went in, test drove one and was sold immediately. I ordered my 2007 Honda Fit Sport that day. Although it took almost 3.5 months for it to come in, it finally did and I can honestly say it was worth the wait. I have read other people's reveiws about a choopy ride, I have not found that in fact I cant get enough driving it. The stereo system rocks, the room is in incredible, it is almost like having an SUV in a compact car. It is by far the best car I have owned. I would recommend it to ANYONE!!! Thanks Honda.....
Pros: The utility. This car swallows various sized items
Cons: Car seems to search for gears sometimes.
Advice: I don't know if the 'sport' version is worth the extra cost.Cute & Comfortable! This is a car for today. Very good mileage and great handling. We recently took this car on vacation and put on about 2,000 miles. Included in the trip was our 18 yr old son and all his CD's and music machines. Because of the way you can reconfigure the interior of the car with it's rear seats, we were able to take a large cooler on the floor in the left back seat area and put our son in the right back seat. Our son stated he never felt crowded. For the trip we averaged just about 39 mpg. We have the base model with the automatic transmission. We had all of our soft sided luggage and trip stuff behind the back seats and the top of the luggage never was higher than the lower edge of the rear window on the hatchback. I love the handling on this car. It is so quick. Buy this car, if you can find one!
Pros: Seating configuration.
Cons: Ride is a little bumpy.
Advice: Remember that you're not buying a sports car, but the best equipped econo car on the road!This car is everything I expected it to be. It's extremely stylish, very roomy and loaded with extras. My wife and I have been looking for years for a car with all the standard features that our FIT has. It's got cruise control, 6 speaker cd with Mp3 and WMA capabilities, 5 speed tranny, 15' wheels, A/C, side curtain airbags, fold flat seating, 5 cup holders, 60/40 split seats, rear windshield wiper, ABS...and completely loaded it was $16,520. Go ahead, show me ANY other car that even comes close to all of those features for under $20,000 AND has the dependability of a HONDA. Sure, it's got a small engine, but the five spped with the paddle shifters really helps that out. Not to mention that we're getting around 32mpg average between city and highway (mostly city), and I'm a fairly aggressive driver!!
Pros: 38 MPG
Cons: Sound system. Does not sound right.
Advice: Actually sit in it. There is alot more room than one thinks for being a compact car.Engine has more 'get up and go' than I thought it would have.
