"Had the car before it was totalled in an accident- and I switched to a Versa. Handle fine- acceleration was fine- but the back was cramped with 2 kid seats- and with a baby seat the passenger seat had to be all the way up to accomodate the baby carrier and base- which made trips with 4 people very cramped. The first tank filling got me only to 208 miles....mostly city- and that was a 22.4 mpg average- never got above 24 in the city- and never over 29 on the hwy. And my previous car- an Audi A4- 1.8 stick got 27 in city and 33 on the hwy.....so I am excited to switch to a Versa.....have 2 friends locally that have Versa's and average 30+ in town."
"I found my Fit to be very easy to drive. Its not as smooth or quiet as the next class, but it is sufficient. I would definitely recommend this vehicle and feel confident in passing this on to my teenager."
"this car is alot of car for $16000.model fit sport ,its been well engineered as you can tell from the large interior configurations.it avg. 25 mpg around town.the only thing that is missing is an center armrest which is annoying.but all in all you feel that youve invested smartly. highly recomended."
"negatives(3): power window controls need to moved forward on armrest 1.5" and buttons for forward windows made more tactile. A/T shift lever moves too easily into neutral when bumped, same with wiper control knob. For my type of mountain driving, the engine lacks the torque going up hill at normal speed; not a big problem for me here in central calif. But I am concerned about higher mountain driving. Positives: great handling and braking, great view out of windows, outstanding inside room for my needs and 35 mpg average for all driving at 2000+ miles."
"have already racked up over 30k and have not have had any real issues.
this car is wonderful to drive, and while its no 3 series, it is hands down a great handler, with great, direct steering feel and great fuel economy.
it could use a dead pedal and armrest, but other than that, the little extras the sport affords you are well worth the sacrifice. this is hands down the best car in its class, why settle for a bland people mover when you can pay just a tad extra and get a rewarding, non-boring and downright entertaining driving experience?
this car has great interior materials, and while its no vw rabbit, its the best in its class.
very cheap to maintain too! and cool in the classic honda hatch way."
"I have had a 08 Fit sport AT for 6 months now and I love it. I have average about 33 MPG combined city highway over the past 21 fillups. My highest MPG was at 35.24 and my lowest was 31.43 MPG. The car is great!"
"I have had this car since Nov 07. I love this car, peppy, fun to drive, and after a 10 hour drive (40.8 mpg, with air on recirculate) I could still walk and wasn't sore. Definitely a keeper.
Don't like that I can 'feel' the road bumps, but driving by Branson, MO, it hugged to curves great.
No problems with the car, only wish it had a valet key and locking gas cap option."
