The main issue my wife and I found was not enough room in the drivers seat or passenger seat. I am 6-2 and my wife is 5-9. We both have long legs. Not a good choice for taller people. Otherwise it was a good vehicle.

Overall:

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great mileage. 33 on average, up to 40 on highways

Cons: Probably too small if you have more than one kid.

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: I runs

Cons: Its to small

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. I miss having an arm rest between the 2 front seats, but you can upgrade from the dealer.

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.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great city car

Cons: Could have a more powerful engine

2012 Honda Fit Base Review
milarepa44 says:
Cheaply made Base w/ narrow wheels and narrow car - too light and unsafe, the only thing you could fit in is cargo - no way 3 normal sized adults could fit in back seat - my left shoulder was touching the center passengers headrest. And Consumer Reports dropped the car 2 notches in realiability after the design change in either 2014 or 2015 - and its stayed low ever since. So cheap it didnt even have front reading lights!

Great car, dependable, great gas mileage, and can get up and go... Great car for a small family. My only complaint is that the car has so many windows it actually burns me, but at least we get good visibility, right?

  • Would Buy
Power Ranked 2000 Plymouth Neon worse.
"The neon has a three speed automatic, thats why the Honda is more powerful. "
Handling Ranked 2000 Plymouth Neon worse.
"Simply because the Honda has more safety features, and is designed more like a sports car than the neon (because the neon was in no way a sports car)"
Looks/Style Ranked 2000 Plymouth Neon better.
"The Honda is somewhat aggressive looking, while the neon looks cute"
Front Seats Ranked 2000 Plymouth Neon worse.
"The seats were better in the Honda because they were more comfortable and had a better design overall. "
Back Seats Ranked 2000 Plymouth Neon better.
"The back seats were roomier in the neon"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2000 Plymouth Neon better.
"It has a larger trunk, large backseats, and the seats are easier to fold down. "
Family Car Ranked 2000 Plymouth Neon worse.
"Simply because the Honda is newer, therefore gets better gas mileage and has better safety. "
Value Ranked 2000 Plymouth Neon worse.
"It is newer, and has a better reputation than the neon"
Would Buy Ranked 2000 Plymouth Neon better.
"Because it is very easy to work on if something goes wrong, which rarely happened even in an eighteen year old car, and it has more cargo room and space for the passengers, which is good for long road trips. "
