Homeboy has obviously never driven a Honda. Honda's of the past have always been loud, the ride has always been 'tight,' etc. I am not the GK's greatest fan, I am and will always be a GD dork. But this guy is miles off base, recommending the Kia Soul over the Fit? Put down your pipe breh.

Hi all, New 2015 Fit owner here. I love the car but have noticed a sound and was wondering if anyone else had run into it and/or knew what it was. Upon parking and shutting off the engine I hear a liquid chugging ("glug") sound coming from under the hood/behind the dash. It lasts for a few seconds and then is gone. The car runs fine and I've had no issues with it. I just crossed the 2k mile mark. Any ideas? My thanks in advance!

Hey All, New to the forum, Ive been a Honda Owner for 10 years but am looking at getting a 2015 Honda Fit. From what I've read on here, it seems like there are less issues with cars made with VIN numbers over 15000 right? My local dealer has this one: VIN #: 3HGGK5H84FM701485 Am I correct in saying that I should be looking at the last 5 digits of this number and would this be one of the vehicles that might have been sitting around awhile in Mexico/all the other ...

I put two switches in the blanks to the left of the steering wheel. One turns on the colored LEDs for nighttime driving, and the other turns on two (so far) 12v outlets I added. I have another switch, but I can't think of anything for it to turn on and off. Suggestions, please!

There is a lock button on the hatch, not the rear doors. It's just to the right of the unlock/release button. While the unlock/release button is rectangular, the lock button is small and round, like on the door handles. No more walking to the front doors for you! Next time you have the hatch open, pull the door down to eye level and look under the handle so you can orient yourself to its position.
Quoted from spaghetina's post
"There's a lock button on the rear doors too?? Lol. I guess you're not alone in not RTFM - I've been walking back to the front of the car and locking them that way. Is there a lock button on the trunk somewhere too? I'll need to look into this tire pressure button. I've never heard of it, and I have no idea what it does."

15 Honda Fit paint quality Here's a video. Watch the distortion in the light reflection.



New 15 Alabaster Silver.....paint issues
"Just got my new for this week. When I got her home after a few days I decided to giver her a good wash and wax. Wow........that's all I can say. The paint is horrible. There are spots all over the car where the paint ran and not to mention hazy places where there is a clear lack of clear coat. Still waiting on Airport Honda in Knoxville, TN to give me a call back to see if we can get this resolved. I don't expect second to none quality on a 19,000 dollar car. I do expect there to be clear coat over the paint on the entire car!!!!!! This is my 3rd Honda and may be my last if this can't be resolved."

Hi all, I'll start off by saying this was my experience, and if you had a different one, good for you. I haven't driven a Honda since my early 2000's S2000 (which was so bad it made me run from Honda for a decade), and I've pretty much only driven German since. So please understand my perspective. The buying experience was somewhat pleasant. I drove 160 miles one way in pursuit of a White EX-L with no navigation. They gave me a nice deal, threw in some goodies. ...

I know nothing about cars, so I was very thankful to find this forum to pick the Fit Freaks' brains! My SO is scared to death of hydroplaning (again) so I'm looking for a nice tire that handles the rain and standing puddles. We do a Lot of interstate driving (not sure if that will help narrow the search?). She also thinks I'm stupid for getting another Fit (so sadly my 1st baby was wrecked) because she doesn't think it'll go-go in snow. I want to prove the Fit ...

Check Craigslist or similar places. There are tons of slightly used tires and rims out there. I have 15" on mine for winter. I like the slightly softer ride as I am on Swifts. Tires are 185/65R15 BFG Winter Slalom

Hello fello FitFreaks, I am a previous owner of a 2011 Honda Fit Sport, who recently got a job working at a Honda dealer in NJ. I also held sales positions on both an Acura dealer and, most recently, a top ten nationwide Lexus dealer. I've been a Honda fan for years and when the opportunity came up to work at one of the best Honda dealership based on customer service, I made the jump and Im very happy I did. The release of the 2015 Fit has been very exciting and also ...

i already posted this picture elsewhere on the forum, but here it is again. those are Kosei K1-TS wheels in 15 x 7, with a 38mm offset. the tires are 225-45-15 Hankook RS-3 that are one of the sets from my STC class 89 civic Si race car. these are not the wheels that are going on the Fit though... you can read why i put them on in the newbies section. but, i did compress the suspension by using a floor jack under the lower control arm 2.5 inches, and then turned ...

"Just ordered mine. I'm curious what wheels you are getting (or already got). I'll be anxious to find out just how much tire can fit in the wheel wells."

I would take the volks. less likely to crack on the street (not sure your road conditions) and Rota's are just crap replicas. The car is too small to put 17's.
Quoted from 15BlkPrl's post
"got a set of these offered to me today. love the wheel but they're only 16s. Price is very good but I like the bigger wheel look. A set of 17in Rota Slipstreams or Grid in royal bronze keeps calling my name.... what do you thing. Real deal Volks in 16in or go for a bigger wheel???"

I bought these Decal to put on my fit but these were only $2 for 2 decals (they had a rating of 99.6%). It's so cheap I feel like it's just gonna come off on the first day. I was going to buy the one that's more expensive (around $6) but the rating of this guy who's selling it FOR $2 is higher and I feel it's more trust worthy. Has any one tried these out before? If so how was it? & and any tips on putting these on properly? I usually use a hard car like a credit card or ...

Pro car thieves use tow trucks so immobilizers will only stop the teenyboppers. Most cars are either stolen for export or for parts so here in SoCal it is still a problem. New York, the locale of the article, is too far from our southern border to make export of stolen cars viable. One could tie one of these to the car with a 20 foot leash, but leaving them inside is now a no-no due to Really Stupid People: If a thief really wants the car they will get it. Make your car ...

Now that some of us are lucky enough to have gotten our Fit's, it would be a great opportunity to compare and inform others what we are getting in MPG. Perhaps list the level of Trim and actual mileage and displayed mileage by car computer. My first tank I got 36.4 actual computer said 37.3 I have the EX-L AC was used probably 85% of the time

My winter tires/wheels arrived today, and in spite of it being a perfect 72 with clear skies and no wind, I went ahead and put them on so folks (including myself) can see what they look like on the car. The wheels are 15x6 Sport Tuning T9 with a +43 offset (required a centering ring), and the tires are 185/60R-15 Firestone Winterforce. Tire Rack includes the correct lugs at "no charge" (I'm sure I paid for them in there somewhere!). TPMS sensors are not needed, of ...

Over at the CR-Z forum we are currently working with Innovative Mounts to get a set of poly mounts made for our CR-Zs and it was brought up that no options exist for the GE8. Chris at Innovative had been following the thread and had mentioned to us that it would be best to have a set of GE8 mounts sent in to them as soon as possible while he is still focused on the CR-Z project... Does anyone have a spare set of mounts to send in to them? Here's a link to the thread on the ...
