About Honda Fit

The 2017 Honda Fit is the perfect example of how today's subcompact cars offer a lot more than basic transportation. Of course it nails the basics: Its so-called Magic Seat makes it easy for owners to maximize cargo space, but still allows for a generous rear seat; the 4-cylinder engine and continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) guarantee good fuel economy; there are plenty of high-tech options. But it's the light weight, brisk acceleration, sharp steering and nicely balanced suspension that give the 2017 Fit its primary edge over rivals like the Nissan Versa Note, Kia Rio and Hyundai Accent: Unlike those cars, the 2017 Honda Fit is actually fun to drive.

Honda smartly refuses to mess with a good thing, and the 2017 Fit is virtually unchanged from last year, which was virtually unchanged from its predecessor as well. The lone change is a new shade of silver paint.

"I researched the Fit before I bought it. Best hatchback on the road. I went to look at it and it was better in person. I drive my cars for 8+ years so I knew Honda was a great choice. I looked at small SUVs but they were so expensive and some had less room than my Fit. Speaking of room... I have two wonderful English Springer Spaniels who love to travel with me. Both of their kennels plus luggage fit in the back of my Fit. Talk about room. The Fit is comfortable and fun to drive. Great gas mileage and safe. I love the Honda Link. Very safe for taking calls and voice texting in the car and Pandora at the push of a button. I bought the EX with all the bells and whistles (except Navigation) and love the moon roof and the backup and side cameras. All this and the car is sporty and good looking. No regrets here after a year with my fit. No problems either."

Pros: "Fun to drive, surprising power, responsive"

Cons: "under body skid plate, console armrest is too low"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"So, I have been driving my Fit for almost 11 months. I have put 46,000 miles plus on it so far. I am about to replace my factory Firestone tires. I think I am ready to give this car a review. First the cons. The biggest one is the 35,000 mile, bumper to bumper, factory warranty! Really Honda? Yes, I bought the Fit anyway. But here is my complaint; your products are well made and have a history of excellent reliability. So with that said, why not be competitive with your rivals; Ford, Toyota, Hyundai, Kia and do better on the factory warranty? Why not match them and offer at least 50,000 miles bumper to bumper? Your lower priced competitors cover their products for that long and some warranty their cars for 100,000 miles. The next con is the center armrest, it is about 7 inches too low to rest your elbow on while driving. The other big issue is the flimsy undercarriage shield that protects the oil filter and oil pan. The car sits very low, there is very little clearance and this plastic panel, held on with plastic clips partially detached and was dragging on the pavement after I hit a puddle of water! A belly flop on a puddle detached this shield. I wish this panel was made of something a little less flexible and held in place with steel bolts, attached to something a little more sturdy? It can't protect much under there if a puddle can detach it! The left outside mirror has this little black vertical line at the far end and it is supposed to be for blind spot assistance? I still don't see what assistance it is supposed to give the driver? The access to the dash power adapter to plug in a charger is a bit too low, and it is kind of in the way of the console's left cup holder and storage. The cabin noise is there, it is not excessive but it is noticeable when driving at highway speeds. I had one warranty replacement; a bum left front strut. One recall to change out the attachment bolts for all 4 door handles. Both of those repairs went well without a hitch. Here's another thing, more of a pet peeve for some, but for me it is important. I do not depend on the service oil life reminder to tell me when to change the oil and filter. Supposedly the oil life reminder monitors the health of the engine oil and it tells you when your oil has 15% life left and that is when Honda says it is time to change the oil and filter. So based on how I drive, if I let the oil life get to 15%, that would mean an oil change every 11,000 miles!! Sorry Honda, but that is just too many miles between oil and filter changes! I am old school and change it based on miles. The Pros, I love to drive my Fit, and I drive it a lot. I am used to a powerful, full size, crew cab pick up. I am used to power, cargo space and good visibility. This was going to be a big change for me and I was consigned to accepting disappointment as part of the deal. I am so surprised at how much pep the Fit has and how much I can haul inside the rear cargo area and the back seat. I have plenty of power to merge onto the freeways and I can pass and leave the 18 wheelers behind me in the dust with ease. The visibility is great, for being so low to the ground. The lane watch camera is one of my favorite EX extras! The back up camera is very nice to have as well when backing out of cramped parking situations. I love the magic back seat, and the headroom in the cabin. My 6 foot tall, long legged teenage Son can sit comfortably in the back seat, with room between his knees and the back of the front seat to spare. The spacious back seat is one of the main reasons I chose the Fit. The fuel economy you get in this car is awesome. Especially when you are used to feeding a pick up truck! I get on average 37 to 41 mpg per tank combined city and highway and 42 to 45 mpg per tank highway. I usually drive my Fit in eco mode and let the CVT do its magic. This car loves to run between 60 mph and 66 mph. This is the sweet spot for maximum fuel economy like I am getting. I love using the Bluetooth to live stream music and hands free calling. It even reads my texts to me and can give a brief reply, which is convenient. I really enjoy the moon roof, what a nice little extra touch. The steering wheel controls are a great plus too! The Fit's handling is positive and responsive. The brakes are solid. This little car can come to a very abrupt stop from highway speeds to zero and the ABS keeps you in your lane and in control. I have had to make several evasive moves to avoid collisions with deer and crazy drivers at highway speeds and never once did this little car handle unpredictably or body roll when swerving. The Fit feels "weighty" for its small size and it has a low, wide and stealthy stance. The Fit handles adverse weather conditions well and it is very maneuverable in tight spaces. I got value for the money spent and I do not regret my purchase."

Pros: "price, comfy, lane watch camera, acceleration"

Cons: "touch screen software"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I have owned this car for 3 months and I have to say I am in love with it. The CVT transmission makes driving the highway quiet and consistent. It has great acceleration as well. The inside of the car is comfy and love the moon roof! A big needed improvement for me would be the touch screen works great but the software is not very intuitive. Sometimes it takes a bit to get it to do what you want. Also, the HDMI port only works when the car has the emergency brake on which is a bummer. I would have liked to use my Waze navigation app on screen. The seat adjustments are amazing, we can fit so much stuff inside the vehicle. The lane watch camera is amazing and will never buy a car without it. When you turn on your right blinker, your screen shows your blind spot. This has been life changing. Overall this car is a steal at the price. I would highly recommend this car. Also, I always get more than 38mpg on the highway. Usually hitting around 42."
