I just read that there is a recall for 09-14 Fit regarding the airbag. Below is the summary: "SPECIFICALLY, IN SOME VEHICLES, THE DRIVER'S FRONT AIRBAG INFLATOR COULD PRODUCE EXCESSIVE INTERNAL PRESSURE UPON DEPLOYMENT. IF AN AFFECTED AIRBAG DEPLOYS, THE INCREASED INTERNAL PRESSURE MAY CAUSE THE INFLATOR TO RUPTURE (BREAK APART) AND DEPLOY ABNORMALLY." Now since the fix is not available until Fall 2016, can you call Honda and request for a temporary car to use while they ...

Are you saying the 2016 brochure is incorrect? The DX says a 5" screen, while the others don't mention size. They just say that it has the Display Audio System. That's irritating! DX is a no-no for me, I need the air conditioning.

Recent new owner of a used 2007 Fit. It came with keyless entry but the thing barely works. I checked the module installation instructions and everything seems in good shape, plugged into the right places, fuse in place. A few times when I change a battery in the remote it'll lock/unlock but only for a couple clicks and generally speaking it just doesn't work. By this, I know the remote is programmed to the car properly, and I have 5 batteries I've cycled in the remote in ...

You could try looking into low rolling resistant tires, I know the Civic HF has them. you could also loook into making the car lighter using Carbon Fiber pieces, replacements for hood, trunk, fenders, doors. Look to lower the weight of unsprung weight. Lower Control arms, Axles, Brake calipers, Brake Rotors, rims, tires. I know the stock exhaust system can carry a decent amount of weight... The car by itself is really good already. I'm essentially describing a race car, for ...

"I don't know what else I can say to communicate that I get it. Is my question offensive? =/ Edit: Added my first fuel up, guys! Banner should be in my signature, and I took a pic of the gauge: Notes for first fuel up (copied from Fuelly): Fuel light came on at about approximately 30 miles range with two bars left in gauge. I kept driving it until there was one bar left on the gauge. First tank of gas from dealer. Had the ECON button on the whole time. Mostly drove 60-65 on freeway using cruise control. Had two days where I ate my lunch in my car with the AC on, like a dumbass. CFN gas, 2816 West Capitol Avenue, West Sacramento - Pump #2 ~60/40 Freeway to City ratio."

What did you do to your GE fit today?
"Since the threads are slow today and I saw this on another forum (Acurazine) and thought it was a good idea I figured it would be interesting to see what people posted 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. To start things off I made my back emblem match my front emblem today. Sorry I will have to post pics of the back later but here is my front I did a couple days ago to give you an idea."

Buy looking at the speakers you bough, the stock were def 6.75in over sized which i bought as well to give you more mid-bass... next time listen to me....lol.enjoy the sound. Next wash/claybar/wax body and wet sand headlights. That care externally needs TLC a lady just wont do and tint.
Replacing stock speakers
"Hey guys, I'm pretty new to this forum, and to cars and modding as well. I'm about to turn 17 and i got a 08 GD3 base fit as my first car from my mom. had it for half a year now and loving it so far. But now to get on topic. I've noticed that the speakers were on the noticeably low end when we got the car, but didn't think replacing it while it was my moms car was worth it, plus she didn't really complain about them. But now that its my daily drive to school and around I've finally decided its time to do some upgrades. I've installed an aux jack myself and wired it up to the stock hu so now it's time to upgrade the speakers. I know that the Fit has 6 1/2 inch speakers and that the max mounting depth for a replacement is 77mm which is about 3.03 inches. Now I've done some research myself ..."

Good morning, Good evening My name is Charles, and I recently purchased a brand new 2016 Honda Fit EX w/ CVT. So far I am enjoying the car. Lots of storage space, high MPG, small and nimble, easy maintanence, cheap parts and its a honda so the aftermarket is large. So the sound its making is intermitent. When the noise appears, I notice it gets louder when I step on the brake pedal at a dead stop with the car in park and is on, idling. The car also makes the same sound, ...

Fuel Mileage Related Discussions
"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"

Hi all, I'm considering getting a new Fit, I think I want to get the ex-l with leather, or at least get my hands on one so I can consider it. Unfortunately I went to the dealer and they didn't have any ex-l, and said there were no ex-l at the 15 or so closest dealerships, and that they weren't sure when/if they would get delivery of the ex-l again. I'm in the DC area. For what it's worth, the dealership had all 16 or so lx and ex models, all automatic, and I checked most ...

I tipped up the Magic seats and moved the front passenger seat forward and rented a Mantis XP cultivator and threw it behind the front seats, no problem. Beat myself up running it for 3 hours and cleaned it and took it back to Home Depot. Who needs a pickup?

I replaced the struts and rear shocks on my Honda 2010 Fit. I used KYB parts from Tire Rack. The replacement went without incident. I'm not a professional mechanic, but I grew up on a farm with tools and engines. I bought the service manual from Helm and the Haynes book and both were invaluable. Replace the stabilizer links at the same time and you won't get annoying clicking sounds when you're done! Make sure you get the special tools to remove the cowl (5 pc. ...

I just bought a Honda Fit 2016 LX and I have no floor mats. Would you recommend I purchase the mats from the dealer or somewhere else ? If somewhere else where would I find a store that sells floor mats for a Honda 2016 LX A Honda Fit Newbie

What annoys you about your Gen 3 fit, now that many of you have had months to enjoy one. For me: 1. Cabin noise from the engine is a bit annoying at say 70 mph and up. - I actually enjoy the engine tones in some rev bands and at some speed levels, but a high highway speeds and in some situations, it seems Honda could have engineered in some better dampening for that common scenario. 2. Front seat leg room - For over 6 foot individuals there could be more play in the front ...

[Picture album at bottom] Haven't been here in a while. But if you see my postings you'll notice why. Some backstory on my situtation. I tried to change my spark plugs on my newly purchased 2008 Honda Fit about a year ago. I found one of my coil packs being held to the engine with a clamp... Upon further inspection, I found a bolt snapped in half which was supposed to hold the coil pack in. I called the dealership and they said they didn't do it, so they didn't own up ...

In typical schizophrenic manner the Canadian weather quickly turned warm and we're now in +18C/65F ranges, at least for the next week. I opted to swap out my X-Ice snows for the OEMs, and wanted to try the jacking points that I've researched this winter. My mileage was slipping slightly as the weather warmed up, possibly because of the snow tires. I don't know. Prep: Put my manual car into reverse, full parking brake, chocked the front wheels Tools: chalk to mark the ...
