- Outstanding Cargo Room and Versatility
- Not a lot of power
Purchased As Used
I'm a drummer who carries loads of equipment on a weekly basis. We got my fiancee a 2007 Fit and I was so impressed with the feel of the car and its versatility that I decided to experiment with loading my drum equipment into it, never expecting it to "fit"! I was amazed and baffled to find that, not only did all my gear fit in the car, but I had MORE useable, accessible space than in my CRV!!
I found a 2010 with 6k miles on it and dealer-installed leather upholstery and bought it for 1$19k. I'm thrilled! Very comfortable interior (the leather is top-quality: thick, pliable and vented), outstanding sound system, fun to drive and, yes, that interior versatility (another example: I carry a rolling computer bag to my office job with a lunch box on the extended handle. The whole shebang fits upright in the space created by the "magic seat"s cushion folded up.). I'm a shade over 6 feet tall and find I've got a good 4 inches of headroom in the driver's seat!
The lack of power is not a consideration for me. I've long ago given up hard driving. If I need to accelerate onto a highway in traffic, I use the paddle shifters to gain some extra oomph. One still needs to allow extra time/distance to merge, however.
The road noise issue, always present in Hondas, it seems, is tolerable, if very noticeable. The suspension does hold the car well in corners, though it is not sports car tight. The ride is very smooth on the highway, but potholes or other abrupt road imperfections do transmit harshly into the body of the Fit. Wind buffeting is an issue and requires full grip and attention to the wheel!
The car has a very tight turning circle and, with the aquarium-class view, affords very clear sight lines, 360-degrees. The Fit gets a lot of razzing about its looks, but I love the cabin-forward, pocket-rocket look of the car!
Overall, I'm thrilled to have a fun, super-practical and perfectly comfortable little go cart, while cutting my monthly payment in half and increasing my gas mileage by over 30%!
