I never thought I would be writing this review about a Honda FIT.... I'm a bit of a car-guy...Among my past cars were Mercedes, Saab, Acura, Volvo and now a.....Fit...???? Seriously....??? But a hip injury made my Acura TSX painful to drive and get in and out of....so, my search began....I test drove MANY SUV's, high-end sedans, Jeep Grand Cherokee, etc and while I was waiting to drive a Honda Pilot I noticed a Fit in the showroom. Almost as a joke, I opened the door and sat down and my first impression was how easy it was to get into the car. I'm 50 and 6 ft. 1 in. and in good shape, but as I sat behind the wheel it was immediately easy to find a comfortable driving position. And this was a $15,500 car...???? I canceled the Pilot test-drive and took the Fit out instead....
My Test-drive in the Fit only reinforced the comfort I felt in the showroom. It was quiet, steering was very responsive and the 5 speed was very, very good...driving ergonomics were perfect and visibility/sight lines were excellent. No rattles or squeaks. Several miles on some twisty town roads and 15 minutes on the highway and I was sold....!!! And I NEVER thought I would enjoy driving this car....
I've now been driving my Fit for a couple of months and have close to 3000 miles on the odometer and I am more pleased as time goes by. Now, the very cool thing is that as much as I enjoy driving the Fit, I'm enjoying the MPG's even more....so far I'm averaging OVER 40 MPG's consistently. This is about 65/35 town/highway driving...!!! Yes, I use cruise control when I can, I coast a little up to red lights, and my starts are mostly relaxed but I'm not doing anything extraordinary to get those MPG's....Comfortable, very low operating cost, very safe, wonderful storage, all in one BIG, small car....and all for LESS than $16,000....!!!! What's not to like....????
