3azeza — Performance (especially when I drive it from Dubai to Abu Dhabi 165 KM/Hour... It has great acceleration, braking and handling... I like its appearance very very much, as well as its color. It doesn't cost me money (Very low cost of ownership)... And the most important thing is the resale value

Pros

Performance, Cost of Ownership, Fun Factor, Practical

Cons

mechanical issue like new strut within a year...and couple minor cosmetic stuff

105

Epic Car And Epic Price — Performance is epic and this car has an amazing fun factor. The i-VTEC engine is very responsive and just makes this car amazing. Even though its FWD the limited slip diff, the lowered suspension make this car's handling a dream. Cost of ownership is very good because the first major service is at 100k. Have had some issues with my si like the strut and speakers, but I still love that thing very much

Pros

Styling, quick steering, sporty gearbox

Cons

1.8 lazy at low revs, lacks torque, bumpy ride, noisy

145

Sporty But Not Very Quick — The 1.8 engine is lazy at low revs and lacks torque, noisy at higher revs. The gearbox is very crisp and the steering is nice and immediate. Stiff suspension causes a bumpy ride. Gaps between panels aren't even and the interior is made out of hard plastics. The design still looks nice. The hatchback offfers a sizeable boot.

Best In Category In My Opinion — great car 142 HP gives this a car an edge great acceleration low fuel consumption looks great maybe not enough gadgets on the inside but easily disregarded as this car is really fun to drive plus it's Japanese so it goes without saying it has a great AC system and great power stearing

Pros

Reliability, fun to drive.

Cons

Stupid trunk.  Not as versatile as a hatch.

45

No Regrets — A little light on torque, but very rewarding when taken above 5800 RPM. Very unique, yet ergonomic interior, great steering, but a little light on steering feel. Wish it was available in a hatch. Great stereo! The USB interface is great! If they made a Si version of the Fit, I would have jumped on that.

less fuel used

Cons

needs more horsepower

Car Is Good But Needs A Little More Power And Little Bit Less Fuel Economy — awesome fuel economy. comfortable interior, seats are the most comfiest seats ive sat on. put a k&n sri on and has a little bit better performance than stock. it is fun to drive especailly in the snow good traction but will slide when you want it to.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Overall, I'm Very Pleased With It. — Very smooth, peppy engine, fun to drive, 5spd stick shift nicely mated to engine. Love the new front end and alloys on the '09. Road noise a bit much, standard tires not grippy enough, driver window rattles a bit when opened. EXL should come standard with a better stereo and lumbar support.

Comfortable, reliable, great on gas

Cons

Love It. — Great on gas, handles well, and is very comfortable. The amenities include navigation, XM radio, iPod hookup - all the things that make road trips more enjoyable. if only it could hold more luggage, it would be perfect. I put a trailer hitch on it to hook up my bike rack, and it was good to go for vacation.
