Just want to say the drive home from work sucked. Heavy, wet, sloppy snow. Temps making things REALLY slick when you approached anything remotely resembling a clear road surface. And a lot of drivers short of a clue... What I really want to say is that the Fit is pretty amazing in the snow. First car I've had with anti-lock brakes and traction control, but backed up with 30+ years of winter driving experience in upstate NY. Even with the 'All-Season' Firestones ...

The earthdreams concept from Honda is wonderful: excellent emissions, light weight components, and good fuel economy. For us power fiends, the lightweight components are not ideal. I perform failure analysis on factory components, and my stress data shows that with the average tuner, no more than 40 to manybe 50whp per cylinder is ideal, with the weak points being the rod bolts and then the upper beam section. The photo above shows the Bisimoto spec rods used in my SEMA ...

"That's pretty amazing to see Bisi. I guess I have a question: Based on the Fit engine internals, what do you think they can actually handle "reliably" stock. Are they pretty solid? or do they seem pretty durable based on your testing."

Hello everybody! I'm the GK5 owner from Taiwan, So please forgive my poor english. I'm so exciting to visit Fit Freak, cause I want know how you guys will tunning your GK5. But in Taiwan we don't have the new ED engine, so I came to visit here to figure out what different between the new and old engine. And you are so lucky to have a 6MT Gk5 in U.S, cause we only have the CVT transmission. Anyways I'm so glad to know this forum. And here are the pics of my ...

Engine falls very flat above 4k RPM. Its a good engine for an appliance, not even a hint of fun though.

Quoted from Fast1one's post
"The engine is great. Rest of the car, not so much. Hated the transmission. Disliked the dash layout. Styling always seemed a little off. Great example of a turbo engine done right for the masses. Gobs of torque down low and midrange, right where you want it on a day to day grind. A tune would take it to the next level. Example:"

I should have just done this in the first place. This picture shows my settings when I was getting HORRIBLE mpg. (First time using any of the defrost settings since owning the car.) This picture shows my settings when the mpg went back to normal. I also got a letter about a recall concerning the defroster that I will look into while I am at the dealership.

People, I may be missing something really obvious but the manual seems to indicate that the ext temperature is supposed to be shown in the instrument cluster above the fuel guage. Is this only available on some models like the EX-L ? I have an EX ...

So i've had my 15' Fit for around.....2 months now. I drove a 6MT GTI before, so I know how to drive pretty well. However I find getting off in first a little tricky in this car. I generally keep it under 2k when starting off, but you have to be SUPER gentle with releasing the clutch otherwise the RPM's drop drastically and it's much rougher. Has anyone else experienced this, The clutch just feels so numb and i've never had this much trouble driving a MT. I mean I drive ...

What a coincidence! I just came in from putting them on my car. The toughest part of the job was removing that red backing tape on the adhesive. I slit it with a blade, and it was much easier to start. The temperature was in the 60's today, and probably tomorrow, too, but it will be raining. I'll put them on my son's car tomorrow. His car is in a parking lot all day.

"I put installation pictures on the mods /accessory's thread. I didn't use the roller, just a damp cloth. You could leave the heater on to keep the panels warm."

I'm not really aware of any Honda vehicles that come standard turbocharged or supercharged, (aside from a model of Acura SUV?). I am aware of some trials they did with the Honda/Acura NSX back in the day with supercharging of it's engine, but in the end the people (engineers?) at Honda/Acura decided to keep it naturally aspirated. I'm aware of the fact that NA (naturally aspirated) engines have better response than engines that are either turbocharged and even supercharged, ...

I have a pair of ramps that are the same height and angle of the Rhino ramps, and I can't use them on either of my small cars. In addition, they are a bear to climb since they will scoot and have such a high degree climb. My advice is to watch some videos on various ramps, and consider the vehicle.

Jack Stands
"What's the jack stand situation with the new Fit? I always use jack stands when I have a car off the ground, but I'm wondering where they can go on the Fit. It's always my fear that I'll lower a car onto a jack stand and have the structure bend."

I test drove an EX this afternoon and compared many things to the '13 that we own. I was surprised to find that when I turned the odometer dial that nothing seemed to happen. I looked at the manual online and it says that that's how to adjust the brightness of the instrument cluster. Are there certain conditions when the brightness is adjustable? The manual mentions when the parking lights are on, is this treated differently than when the headlights are on or set to auto?

Honestly it's almost impossible to see. Extremely subtle. It's not something that you would notice, but it's still there so it still adds to the overall dark gray/black feel of the entire car (lx has almost no silver/chrome on the front or back. So the entire car is black and dark gray once you add black wheels). I'll get you a better picture with the whole car in a bit once it's not so damn cold out lol

"Curious to see how this came out. Did you also wrap the rear roof spoiler? I have had this done on previous cars and am considering doing the entire roof with the spoiler. Any pics?!"

some here were aware I had a battery issue earlier this summer, the car had set a couple days and went dead. I was concerned about its longevity but have not had any issues with it since and it has now been 9degree tested after a couple days of sitting and it fired right up no problems.

I was wondering if anyone had pulled their stock EX head unit out and noticed if there's is a place that could be used for an mp3 input? I still can't wrap my head around the fact that it's not on the dash. This made me question if the unit was possibly implemented in a way that Honda chose not to use it, kind of like rca plugs on an after market head unit.

2010 Honda Fit Sport Bought a week ago used with 19,000 miles and ready to get rid of it already. If it rode better I would be happy with it but I honestly have never driven such a rough riding car. I had a geo metro hatchback 10 years ago that was way more comfortable. I have had older civics, accords, mazda protege, acura integras, old broncos. All rode better. It is truly ridiculous how bad it rides. I let a few pounds of air out of the tires after taking a beating last ...
