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.
"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
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 ...
"About a week ago, there was a brief discussion about using a floor jack to lift the Fit. I had made a wooden block for a Nissan Cube, and I was going to make another for the Fit. Someone cleverly suggested using a hockey puck between the jack pad and the car. I got two pucks from Amazon. One will sit on the jack pad, and the other will be on top of it, fitting into the sheetmetal on the bottom of the Fit.
I found that my table saw can easily cut a groove into the rubber puck. I can widen the groove with multiple passes and increase the depth with multiple cuts. My question is how can I hold the puck securely to make all these cuts? I need some kind of carrier so it stays in position, and also to keep it from dragging against the rip fence."
I wanted to get a remote starter from the dealer for my Fit, but the 450 foot range is just not going to cut it.
Does anyone have any recommendations for an aftermarket remote starter?
Has anyone installed one in a 2015 Fit thus far?
My range requirement is about 1000 feet.
Now that 2015 Fits are fimally arriving, what are you seeing in prices at the dealer. And what did you end up paying? I know one dealer locally who is marking them up by $1,500 over list.
1. Model, any accessories
3. Dealer Price
4. Selling Price (before trade)
I'm sure this thread will evolve, but lets get the bal rolling!
1. EX, CVT, Red. No accessories
2. San Diego, KA
3. MSRP. $19,025
4. MSRP. Traded a 2009 Fit Sport.
Perhaps 40 years ago I would be kind of proud for fogging up the windows of my car...now (?) not so much. I JUST drove my '15 Fit LX home...about 165 miles and here are the clues, I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this or has an answer:
1) Yes, its cold outside, about 22 degrees.
2) I tried every combination, I think, of air controls on the dash I could think of....
3) Passenger side didn't fog up (very much)
4) Driver's side fogged, then beaded with 'sweat'
I am try to figure out which car would fits my needs best. Considering one of the selling points for the Fit is the large trunk space. But when you compare the numbers the Honda Fit trunk space is almost 40% less than Subaru Impreza hatchback's trunk space (Honda Fit: 16.6 cu.ft; Subaru Impreza: 22.5 cu.ft Source: )
That sounds like a significant difference - have any of you had a chance to compare it ? On my visual inspection (on test drives), the difference ...
I have a 2015 fit ex and I have noticed that the radio will automatically start at the first track of the first folder when using my USB stick. Is there any way to get it to resume playback where it left off. I hate having to hear the same song play every time I start the car. I also noticed that sometimes it does this and sometimes it resumes. Very random.
