A Good Car — A good, reliable car that is affordable and gets good gas mileage. Works well as a daily commuter vehicle. It is also a good small family car. Once your children get bigger you may want to look for something roomier.

I Love This Car!!! — This car was so easy to own and drive. It has not had any issues. If I ever buy a car again it will be a Honda. They are awesome. Gas Mileage is great and I seldom spent more than $36 a tank.

Pros

It lives up to its name and I am able to fit a lot of stuff (furniture, musical instruments, etc.) into the trunk.  I can also fit those items plus passengers.  The Fit is also easy to park which is especially important in the urban are where I live.  I can pull into small spots and also parallel park with ease.

Cons

The only con so far is that I forget how small the car actually is in comparison to my old car when it comes to parking.

The Fit Fits — I absolutely love my Honda Fit. I can fit a lot of musical equipment in it for my job and can also move larger items on the weekends and when I go shopping. It is a lot of fun to drive and parking is a breeze.

Reliable, Lovable — It's a great little car that is bigger inside than you would expect. It's a perfect car for a small family or people on the go. It is a very reliable car and never had any issues mechanically at all. It handles fine even in snow.

Fun To Drive — This car is Great on Gas. It feels quick, even sporty, with the manual transmission. With back seats down there is a lot of cargo room. It looks great in black. I had no mechanical problems. I would recommend this car to a friend!

Great Economical Car. — I liked this car due to the space flexibility and economy. You have to be comfortable with less features than a more expensive car. I have a bad back and the drivers seat was not supportative and adjustable enough for me. I think the car is okay, my wife and daughter (19) love it. The manual transmission is excellent.

Perspective On My Fit — It's been a very economical car for me and very low cost to maintain. It's also a blast to drive, making the daily commute grind much more enjoyable than it would normally be. My biggest gripe would be the front seats definitely could be more comfortable.

Dependable And Fun To Drive. — Dependable, drives nice, easy to maneuver and park. A few scratches on the rear bumper and left rocker panel but still looks like new. This car is rock solid transportation and has been well maintained with only synthetic oil used in the engine.
