"Date of Purchase Jan 2016
I researched for 2 months prior to making this purchase, and haven't really regretted it. I will say that my total even after 6500 down was like 17k, which stung when my bestie went and got a nice used Yaris for 6k flat, HOWEVER, this is a Honda, it will run forever, and being new I will get more years at this point than she will.
Gas mileage is fabulous. I know that the indicators on our cars are not fully accurate, however I tend to average 40 mpg on drives of any decent length, even with other folks in the car. the tank only holds 10g but I almost never had to gas up, which I LOVE. I leave ecoboost on all the time, and use cruise control even when doing in city driving to maximize it.
Also it is pretty versatile. The seats fold like a million ways, and I can fit any sensible thing in there. 8ft sheet of drywall?-no, but literally like anything else. Even helped someone move recently and I think she was shocked at the stuff I could get in my Fit. Also the front seats fold SO far back you can literally take a comfy nap
Wasn't a selling point but love the moon/sun roof
People complain about the seat and head rest, but Ive been a nurse a long time, and have back and neck problems, and even when I have a 2 hour drive I don't feel uncomfortable. That said, my family often complains there are no front seat armrests (I don't care)
Not as much power as the v-6 I used to drive, but lets be honest, I think we expect that in this class, and again, even when the car is jammed full of people we make it up and down our hilly area just fine.
Like the safety features and kids are starting to drive so it was a big concern. Best backup camera I have ever had, and the right lane turn camera is fabulous, all of us love it. Air bags all over, and steel safety cage was a plus
Handles well, tiny turn radius, and so small its a breeze to maneuver. You can park this sucker like anywhere
Screen is nice and big, and like the info I can get on it is so easy to see, wish it would do/offer more though.
Like the hatch, easy on the go, and convenient.
The mats it came with were fine for me, and I feel no need for the special all weather ones.
I love the push button start, which I hadn't cared about before, but wouldn't give up at this point. Also like the function of the keyless system. Just beware, it does lock itself even if you didn't want it to sometimes, so you have to get used to it
Wish the back seat had a fold down arm rest, maybe with cup holders to separate the kids better, but cup holders in each door, and I can just tie them up (kidding)
Grammy feels the road noise is too much for her when she is riding with me, and feels her Prius has better road noise control. Doesn't bother me though
Hubby is a big guy, like 6'3" and wide football player shoulders, so to be honest this isn't the most relzxing fit for him. The head room is surprisingly decent but especially width wise he often feels cramped.
The biggest drawback for me is thus: theres a nice huge infotainment screen that I cant do much with. It shows my camera views which is great, song title, phone connected, call data, drive info and such but not much else. I had no intention for paying extra for onboard GPS which would have displayed there. But heres the kicker, there is an HDMI input slot to connect your IPhone to, but it wont work with android. So If I had an iPhone I could mirror applications AND more importantly iPhone GPS to it. It doesn't work with android, and my research indicates that due to the variety and difference in android device manufactures its unlikely to ever happen. This is my single biggest Con/ Awesome screen, but during most of my drive it quite frankly doesn't do much, and I had enough of apple a long time ago so just out of luck :(
I love this car, I don't really regret it, though the price bothers me a touch. I enjoy driving it, and feel safe with the kids in it. Lots of nice features."
