I am excited to say i am picking up my first fit tomorrow!
I've been looking fit awhile and believe now is a good time before my current car depreciates too much.
Got a 2015 manual in passion berry pearl. Love the color.
Didn't get the deal of the century because it was the only manual purple fit my dealer could source from within 5 states! So yeah, free windows tinted, $500 off msrp, and a fair trade was the best I could manage.
I believe it will be a good ...
"Some dealers would tell you to come in for an oil change every week if they didn't figure it would destroy any shred of credibility they still have on the subject. I've always found it hard to imagine an oil change could be that profitable for them."
I really haven't had many problems with my 2015 FIT. I have the dashboard misalignment, and have not had anything recalled. I am waiting for the wheel well liner to start sagging, and am pretty sure once I get my first oil change the plastic underbody cover will fall off.
with all these posts about recalls and issues with how cheaply built this car is, I am starting to regret having traded my 2010 in for this one....
I only have 2K miles on it, and am seriously ...
My son's "Wrench" lit up yesterday, at about 25,500 miles: A 23. The oil is at 15%, so it wants me to change the oil, CVT fluid, and some filters. I have the synthetic oil, oil filter, and K&N air filter. I ordered four quarts of HCF-2 from HondaPartsNow. It's generally available for $8 - $9, but shipping can cost over $4.00 per quart. HPN had the best price I could find. Now I'll have to get a cabin filter form somewhere.
Just a few days ago, I posted here, asking ...
I returned home from a week-long trip to find a little box in my mail. It came from the Honda headquarters with a card welcoming me to the Fit family and also a mini-Fit key chain that according to the instructions lights up and has a pull-back mechanism.
Not sure if someone else has posted this while I was away.
So I just got a Moto X Pure (Android) and I've connected it through bluetooth to the Fit. When I get a text it notifies me. The weird thing is, when I send a text it notifies me that I got a text too. It says there is a text from my number immediately when I press send on the text message app. If I change it to not notify me when I receive a text, obviously it doesn't notify me when I send or receive a text.
On my previous cell phone Galaxy SII Skyrocket it worked as it ...
"Hey, anybody in GTA want to get a small meet going? I currently have a BMW, but looking into buying the 2015, but would love to just meet some enthusiast and see what you guys have done and just talk."
What annoys you about your Gen 3 fit, now that many of you have had months to enjoy one.
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 ...
Here we go again.
Like last year, I intend to keep an up-to-date list of 2016 Fits that are in-stock, in-transit and on order, when the info is available. Keep in mind that some dealers, like last year, will initially ask for more than MSRP. My store is not marking up prices (just an fyi).
Some quick tidbits on changes for the 2016 model year:
Where are they made?
2016 Fits will be manufactured both in Mexico and Japan
What features have been changed?
The 2016 Fit ...
Using Stainless Steel wire ropes and some swaging I was able create a device to limit rear trailing arm travel without modifying the damper, thus eliminate the need for helper springs, which was causing some weird behaviour from trailing arm deflection during turns and bumps.
The rubber isolator for the Bilstein rear adjustable spring perch was modified from Honda factory part, which provided much more surface area compared to the Bilstein part. The ropes have a 290lbs ...
i am running 185/65-15 general altimax arctic on 2G fit steel wheels. that is the thinnest tallest tire that fits within the fit wheel well. put 12k on them lduring last years season, and freshened up the front and will be doing the same this year.
