sounds like you should decide yourself. If you need the latest and greatest in air bag/safety technology why let something so worthless as money stop you. it's just money. it can always be replaced. older suvs might perform just as poorly in the new crash test standards as older smaller cars. as for me, my car has no airbags and is shaped like a ramp but I'm not worried about it because I don't have any distractions and I drive safe and aware. and also it's agile. and ...

While driving home from the dealer on Monday, the TPMS light came on. I checked the tire pressures when I got home, and one was 29.5, while the others were 33.5. Now they're all the same, but the light is still on. I've pressed the TPMS button, but that hasn't helped. Suggestions?

hey guys, i got my VIN, and a ETA of this thursday for a white EX-6MT. now I need to try to get my ducks in a row and keep a unwavering attitude into the dealer this weekend. since living in Arizona, we have some outrageous doc fees... something around 300 to 500 dollars. I been trying to do some heads up room to help myself understand what is my final purchasing price OTD; to combat the doc fee as I think this is the only floating variable to the bottom line of the ...

I bought 2 jumbo size ones from Autozone, and overlapped them, holding them together with silicon adhesive. Put them on the outside, held in with the edges under the door frames. Holds tight, and blocks the sun before it hits the windows. Cheap.

"I ordered this custom fit Heatshield or sunshade for the massive lol! front windshield on the FIT. I thought I would just post up a few pictures for a quick review. I am really impressed with the FIT and finish of this product. Its well made and I would order it again. They even brought the material down to cover the small windows just in front of the driver and passenger side windows. I hope this helps anyone thinking about ordering a sunshade. It really helps lower the interior heat level on a sunny day. My apologies for the not so great interior photo shot…not a professional photographer here, but I think you get the idea. Flipping the FITs sun visors up snugs the shade in place. Here is the info for ordering- Here a link to their website-"

Hey all. I'm looking to get a new yellow Fit MT EX in the next 6 months or so. I'm seeing a lot of mixed reviews on this forum while lurking... And I've been trying to keep up with how people are liking their new fits. I know the people who are having problems will definitely voice their opinions. Just curious if you regret your purchase!

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. ...

Anyone else tried "downshifting" with the CVT when coming to a stop w/o touching the brakes? Amazing how much speed it drops when your able to get it into "first gear". Saving gas and brake pads every chance I get!

Hey all! Finally got around to taking a couple pictures pre-mod, both of us are waiting on bodywork/engine work to be done before we start with bigger purchases. So for now, we have stock 2008 Fits, mine being the sport model and his being the DX (with a possibility of him purchasing the sport body kit). By next summer these will be totally different cars while remaining daily driven. I will post any mods I do to this thread. Ill post some pictures of the mods I have ...

Since LaneWatch is a key difference between the LX and EX, I thought I would post my LaneWatch pictures in this thread so other's can see the images we are discussing. Below is an excerpt from my LaneWatch can see the car AROUND cars behind me! Even though the road is curving away from the LaneWatch camera! This truck is dominating my rear view mirror. LaneWatch reveals a car hidden by the truck. This seems insignificant, but its not. It gives me greater road ...

Great review..thanks

"Destination: Rehobeth Beach, 3 hours/150 miles one way, 3 nights Cargo: Wife, baby, two tiny dogs and a bunch of beach stuff I purchased my first new car, a blue 2015 Fit EX-L on July 14th. Nine days later, it was time for our annual beach vacation, and naturally I wanted to drive my new toy. My wife and I had always taken our larger Nissan Murano (mid-size SUV) to Rehobeth Beach. Now that we had a newborn baby in addition to our two small dogs, we had even more stuff to take, so my wife was not sure if everything would fit. It did. With plenty of room to spare. Cargo With a baby seat behind the passenger seat, I was only able to lay down the one wider back seat. First I packed in the large items: a beach chair, beach umbrella, canopy, travel crib, stroller and dog crate. I ..."

Blew through my stock 15 inch tires at 30k miles on my '12 base. When I went to the tire store to replace them, the guy at America's/Discount Tires suggested Arizonians (Cooper) and upped the size to 185/65-R15s (from the stock 175/65-R15s). I noticed a small drop in fuel economy (2-3 MPG). I wore out those tires after 45k, so I bought some Goodyears (185/65-R15s also) that were on sale. Turns out, they are the "ComforTread" tires. While the car was incredibly quiet, ...

Since the GE guys have this on their thread i thought i would bring it here! "Just fill in whatever you done to your fit today. If its a modification, washed it, drove, anything chime in. Could be a fun thread to see peoples progress/activity."

So I was poking around in diag mode on the Display Audio unit and found that my 6MT EX has a GPS receiver in it. I thought it might be taking the info from my phone so I turned my phone off but it continued updating. The component check also showed "OK" for a GPS antenna (but not for an XM receiver). Sort of fascinating and probably not anything nefarious. What it probably means is the standard Display Audio units and the Navi units are identical other than software. This ...

Yes, the license plate bulbs are the same "Wedge" style bulb. The bulbs I used from the license plate are from the same 10-pack I used for the interior. I'll post a How-to here in the next couple days on the process. Its easy. Here's a couple photos from when I did the license plate: The brightness is perfect. Not too bright, not too dark. Just kinda "glows"
Quoted from Fit4Days' post
"Am I correct in assuming that you used the same bulbs for the rear license plate LEDs and the interior? I ordered the College Hills kit as well and was really impressed with the results. First time modifying a car so the fact that the kit gave me the right bulbs was worth it to me, even if it was a little overpriced. I also got their LED fog bulbs which I am hoping to get put on this weekend."

The back part of my 2009 sport fit is getting beaten up - putting bikes in and out, sitting on it etc. I think i have seem rubber looking protectors that go there, but I can't remember for the life of me what they are called. Anyone have any recommendations? I have a picture of the part I am would like to be covered. Thanks all !

So ROTTBOY, this one is for you. I went out and drove the car. I'll begin with little annoyances that have nothing to do with the driving experience: -Front passenger seat does not go far enough back, I couldn't comfortably stretch out. -Rear seats have less headroom than GD/GE, significantly less. I (6' tall) can't sit in the rear seats with them reclined without bashing my head on the headliner. -Sunroof is uselessly far back, especially for a shorter driver (My 5'4" ...

Honda built this large facility in Mexico to give their dealers all the Fit's and HR-V that they could sell. I would expect that the new plant would be up to full production after six weeks IF Honda needed the product. Do the dealers need more inventory? The Fit has been out for over a month, and the Yellow and White, two of the colors that I expected to be most popular, are rare. Why? Is this a paint issue with these colors, or is Honda holding some colors until they ...

New to the forum, just looking for some help, quick! I have a 2012 auto base with about 37k. Early on, the only problems I had were a bad wheel bearing (came from factory like that) and a bad battery at like 2000 miles they replaced under warranty. About a year in, I started to notice it was shifting funny as I came down a hill. Always happened in the same spots in my commute. I don't know much about cars but I knew it felt funny. The rpms would stay high and the car ...

Here's how you can share your pictures from Flickr. Click on the picture you want to share in your album, then click the little arrow in the bottom right. A share box will pop up. Under code, click "BBCode", then select the size you want to import here (do medium or large at least, I did large in my example). Then copy the code that comes up below the size box (copy all of it), then paste that code right in your reply like you would any other text. This is what I'm ...
