Hi all, I just hit a milestone in my 10-day old Fit: 1,000 miles on the odo as of last night. Luckily I was able to snag a picture. Many hundreds more please!
I have read over and over that you shouldn't change the break in oil early, and I'm wondering if anybody can shed any light on why? It seems like a good idea to change it early as I imagine there are a lot of metal shavings in it from the new engine. Is this faulty logic?
Is there any damage to be done with an ...
here is a pic of the old t1r spindle: fastbrakes.com modified bracket (on a ge): jdm rear spindle: ebay one i just found (note that it rotates the caliper up slightly, which isn't a deal breaker... but... don't know:
As an owner of 2nd. gen. fit I'm looking at the 3rd. gen. and they just arrive to where I live (South America).
Here we have LX and EX but we can't choose transmission, LX is 6-speed and EX is CVT with climate control (no VSA, 5" screen, no sunroof, no lanewatch).
I always drove manual cars but the LX is not an option given the small gap in price between both versions and the big difference in features.
Does anybody test their CVT Fits from 0-60?
Is the CVT more ...
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I'm listening to music while pulling into the garage and and I push the blending start stop to turn off the car and it always kills my music. Hiw do I prevent this? It's incredibly frustrating to have to turn the power on again as it interups the mood. How do I maintain audio during an on off cycle thanks.
I went out to get a picture... Looks like its two scratches, one on top that is not that bad, and the big one is in the middle, you can see the screw head impression from the license place I backed into....
I have been trying to buy a White LX CVT for several months. White is generally considered the most popular color, and the LX , since it is the least expensive model is probably also the most popular model, BUT Honda has been building lots of High Profit EX and EX-L models and very very few white cars.
I'm working with a major Credit Union and some very large Honda dealers, and was just told that No Fit are expected Till SEPTEMBER 13.
I sold my 2012 Fit in ...
Honda Link has the navi app option for $60. I like Google Map better. Do you guys think there would be a jailbreak mod sometime in the future so we can download Google map and or other apps like waze? Have anyone tried to jailbreak other systems in other cars before?
Up for sale is my Sprintex blower. I am starting to part my car out to get ready for trading it in on something different. The blower has right around 7k miles on it. I purchased it new about 10 or so months ago.
I can include my engine harness with the kit if you have an automatic fit that it will be going on. I would be willing to buy a new engine harness if the person that is buying would like to buy it as a "plug and play" setup with all of the wiring already done. ...
Vancouver FitFreak isn't on here as often as we were during the hey-day of the GD3s. but we represented (proudly) at Revscene Summer Meetup over the weekend! after the meetup 3 of us went to do a photoshoot. here's a sample of the goods!
the full album can be found on my fb page:
This is very easy to do if you are in the proper place with the proper tools. You do not need to take any wheels off the car. You do need to take the plastic shroud off under the engine and into the wheel wells. It connects using approx 4 phillips head screws under the radiator and approx 10 fasteners with heads that need to be raised around 1/8" and then removed and later reused. The fasteners are under the radiator/bumper, in the wheel wells, and on a cross member ...
"Hi All -
The picture, which I posted below, makes it look very easy to get to (it isn't!). It is at least 6" further back than is indicated by the pic. I took the passenger front tire off to make it easier, but I just can't get the plug off. I can get to it with a mini-ratchet and a 19mm socket, but there isn't enough room in the area for me to turn it. So my questions are:
- Have you ever done a DIY coolant change on your GE8 Fit? If so, did you drain from the block plug? How did you manage to remove it?
Thanks for your help."
I am so upset. I got into a minor fender bender after only 2 months of buying my fit! (2011, 45k miles).
I was hit on the passenger side rear quarter. The damage that is visible seems minimal. The rear bumper has scrape and paint marks and the inner lining of the wheel well, closest to the rear of the car, is very slightly dislodged. I did notice some paint on my rear tire, hit on one side of the tire and barely scraped the rim.
The car doesn't seems to be driving ...
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 ...
Has anyone who has had their head unit replaced seen the issue with the lane watch camera any more? I'm curious if it actually helped as I am seeing it about once a week now and seems to be getting more frequent.
Who here has seen some good gains with all motor mods?
I was planning on getting a WR IM and curious if anyone ran one all motor.
So far it's just a AFE stage 2 intake, MR header and DP, IK20 plugs, and Hondata.
Is the IM worth the buy for all motor now or will I suffer a loss in power from to much intake velocity on a small, little HP application? SC lit will be later this year.
Hey everyone, I've got a quick question. I'm 6'2" and took a 2015 Honda Fit for a test drive the other day (EX 6MT). It was an awesome ride, and I'm very seriously considering purchasing one. I have one qualm with it though, and that's that it just doesn't quite fit me.
With the front seat all the way back, I still have to bend my knees a decent amount (I have long legs and arms). Additionally both armrests are awkwardly low for my height. I find that I'm actually more ...
I wanted to buy a rota fighter and use my stock tires which I believe is 15. I see online with different sizes like 15 x 6, 15 x6.5 does this matter and for the fit is it 4 x 100 or 5 x 100? btw I have a 2013 black fit which im planning to lower it an inch and already bought a lowering spring for it.
