Great City Car — It has a great mileage. 33 on average up to 40 on highways. It's pretty small so it is great for city and all the parallel parking there. Never had any maintenance problems with it. It seems to last for a long time.

Little Fit — This car could have used a lot of improvements especially when on the freeway the car is load and can get hard to talk, slightly under powered for the size, feels like it should be a $8k car new wouldn't buy again

Pros

Easy to handle, no problems at all.  I can't believe all the storage space I get with this car! The back seats flip up (like movie theater seats), and down to extend the entire trunk.

Cons

It's not going to accelerate as quick as a Corvette, but that's what happens when you select great gas mileage versus a race car.  I miss having an arm rest between the 2 front seats, but you can upgrade from the dealer.

Spacious, Easy Handling, No Maintenance Hatchback! — I love my car! Everything said in the pros and cons. Easy to handle, no problems at all. I can't believe all the storage space I get with this car! The back seats flip up (like movie theater seats), and down to extend the entire trunk. It's not going to accelerate as quick as a Corvette, but that's what happens when you select great gas mileage versus a race car.

Great City Commuter Car — I've only owned my Fit for a few months, but I am still loving it. I shopped it against a Jetta, Golf, and Imprezza (I wanted a hatch back), and it was by far the best value for the buck. (If you get the sport model, be sure to get the wheel locks though, apparently the rims are frequently stolen). It has been a great commuter car with nimble handling and great mileage (around 24 mpg so far, almost all stop and go city driving). Considering how short it is (a big pro) it holds a ton. My wife took it grocery shopping recently and was particularly impressed. The ipod usb integration works great too. 11/26/13 - Update Now that I've had the fit for a couple of years, I can confirm it has continued to be a great car. It's even gotten tapped on the back bumper a couple times with no ill effects. I suspect when I finally drive it into the ground, there will be another Fit in my future.

A Good Car For A Small Family. By ArbitraryScreenName

It's a Honda so it's reliable. With only 23,000 miles on it I can't comment on durability. The interior is well designed and controls are intuitively obvious. Seats are comfortable and the adjust... Read More

Very Capable But In No Way Exciting. By rjm6311

The quality and reliability are worth the cost of entry. It is slow (!) even under normal, non-sporting conditions. It needs disc brakes on the rear wheels; drums are from a bygone era. Interior spac... Read More

I Love My Car! By Mom_of_Bubba

Terrific handling, great mileage, super hauler for its size. I wish the standard AM/FM stereo had had a USB port or a headphone jack, but it didn't...I had to put in a third party one to get that. I... Read More
