According to KBB not really a " drop everything, and go buy this car" type of deal. But while searching for a new suv for my girlfriend , I saw this and really liked the color and the new design.. I currently am driving a 09 sport that I will keep as a primarily winter driver/backup.

Review actually mentions cargo volume compared to Fit, and the Sport model does have a knob for volume who crave it...

Hatch-Boast or Hatch-Envy?: 2016 Fit vs Civic Hatch
"The long awaited 13 years since the last Civic hatch is now over: The is here. Last year I was contemplating waiting for the car, but went with the Fit instead. Honda continues to surprise me. I would have thought that the Civic's hatch would be bigger than the Fit, as it is a larger vehicle. Alas, it seems I am incorrect. The Fit has 470/1492L of hatch space, or 12% more space.Am I reading this correctly? Here are the US specs, taken from the US Honda Site: Honda Civic 25.7 / 46.2 cu ft vs Honda Fit 16.6/52.7 cu ft (rear seat up / rear seat down), 12% more space in the Fit. The Civic seems to have a better engine, a 1.5L turbo 174hp, 167fp torque. The Civic weights 2815lb vs the Fit's 2513 lb, or 300 lb more. That could be two more people. The Civic seems to have also taken styling ..."

Exactly .... charmed should be paying more attention to the road and other drivers and not fret over the gas gauge
Quoted from KentFinn's post
"What's to fix? Fuel gauges, analog or digital, are tat best, guesses. The bars are WAGS (Wild Ass Guesses). The Info Screens and the "estimated" Range Remaining and SWAGS(Scientific Wild Ass Guesses). Then there are the conditions. Same temperature, same road, same brand of gas from the same station. And you simply don't have enough data points. Relax, nothing wrong."

The history behind using headlights during the day time came from two lane highways in Europe. When you want to pass a slower vehicle from behind, the faster vehicle had to move to the opposing lane to pass, which would be unsafe should another car coming could cause a head on collision. The faster driver would turn on his headlights to show opposing traffic that he is approaching, and not just another car traveling in the same direction. Well, I believe GM got the idea ...

They're out there, but you have to hunt. I have a JDM rear bumper and rear taillights on my USDM Fit (which is rebadged as a Jazz). If my info is right, this is identical to the Australian market Jazz, which has the longer USDM front bumper and shorter JDM rear bumper. es

Exactly. Sorry to hijack the threadbut im a big spender too. Just hard to justify 1500 bones for lights, but $1500 for something else to destroy my liver...sure why not?! Custom 12 foot bar Dual tap kegerator with a crap ton of 5 gallon beer kegs to drink Bally Embryon pinball. Its a wide body. Last of 5 games. This is fully restored from 1981. All work with the exception of playfield graphics are done by me.

2015 EX 6 spd 99% of the time, I open the driver door by holding the handle. I do not use the key fob. When I do this, only the driver door opens. When I open the doors by holding the handle of the passenger door, ALL the doors open. When I open the rear hatch, ALL the doors open. I believe this is factory default. I want to change that to where when I hold the driver's door handle, ALL the doors open. On the Fit Manual page 104 (Customizing the Auto Door Locking/Unlocking ...

Yup that is the one! I love them, they look great and for 30ish dollars its great. FittedonEM had silver ones, but I am sure its the same seller.
Quoted from BMW ALPINA's post
"Hi Mr. Hollow, Very Nice Where did you buy those Paddle Shift Extender? Please... ? Edit: found it on eBay: I just buy one for me... I see the seller had sold 2 piece before me, that must be you and FittedonEM? "
ritholtz, TorontoBoy and Bob Levine posted in this thread recently
Thanks for the information. We have $500 deductible. I already did one accident last year. our premiums are bumped up a lot. Not sure if it worth it to go with insurance again. I am trying to find out simple fixes and live with it. I got estimates between $800 to $1100. Is it possible to adjust fender little bit to not to touch with the door and apply some touch up paint instead of replacing whole fender.
Quoted from Bob Levine's post
"Not comprehensive, but collision. That will be "at fault", so see how much you'd get after deductible. Claim would get you rental car coverage if that is on your policy. Some insurers do not penalize for the first "at fault" claim. So work the numbers and then decide. Good luck."

Install paddle shift, possible?
"Hi, i have been searching throughout google and couldn't find definite answer, at least for the ge8. So is it possible to install paddle shifter to a non paddle shift ge8? Well, we do not have paddleshift for the base model here except for rs type. I was thinking to buy the oem shifter along with the module, if it's possible."

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."

Really cant drive it to Advanced auto. In all reality take a look at this video. This is what is happening to my vehicle. There has been no change while looking for the fuse that may have been blown. Looking for a blown fuse isn't an uncommon effort.

Throttle actuator? 2000-3000 rpms
"Hello, could use the help. I have a 2011 fit with 82,000 miles. Yesterday the engine light came on and then it became sluggish and then engine light began to flash at 2000-3000 rpms and will not go higher. Hence, not a very drivable vehicle. I checks the dbw 15amp fuse and switch the relays to test if one was bad. Just filled tank with new gas. Im lost and need help. Thanks"

I know there are several threads on this, but I have a specific question that I'd like to get answered. I have a 2011 Base model. One day last year (almost exactly a year ago), and today, my TPMS light has come on. NOT the low pressure warning. It seems to occur when I go to a higher elevation with a temperature change, but not every time I do that. Tire pressures were fine all around. I don't care if the light comes on---I can't really afford to get new sensors. ...
bach, The Fitness and 10 others posted in this thread recently
I thought I'd get used to it, but I have a narrow but busy local road that curves to the left, making a smooth 90 degree turn. Cars are parked on the right side of the road and there is just enough room for 2 cars to pass, kids and pedestrians all around. The Fit's A pillar seems to perfectly block my view, forcing me to lean forward in order to look left through the curve. I thought I'd get used to it, but being forced to lean forward to improve my sight line seems, in the ...

First post. First world problem. Bought this 2013 Fit used in July from the Honda Stealership. Satisfied with the vehicle overall. Today I was checking basic maintenance and noticed that it had a white oil filter. Investigating further I was disappointed that it indeed was not a Honda filter. They're still blue, right? They are still recommending a filter change with the oil change, yes? It's not the filter per se that bothers me, it's that I bought the car from a ...

I'm looking at replacing the wipers on the Fit and the situation is murky for the short side. The selection is limited and it seems there's not even a consensus on size -- some recommend 14-inch while others say 13-inch. I was under the impression 14-inch is OEM and was wondering if anyone even uses the 13s.

hey all, I was wondering if you guys knew a good replacement axle for an 07-08 fit. My wife has had both of hers replaced with aftermarket ones from the dealership, and one already was replaced under warranty thankfully, but both are going out again. My friend who works at the Honda dealership told me that they won't even put aftermarket axles on any Fits, due to not fitting correctly. Stock Fit axles are like 700-800 apiece not including install. I was wondering if ...

Anyone install a ZEX nitrous controller in their 2015? I have a complete wet system going in and need to find out which wire is the output wire on the TPS for the ZEX box. This box is used for triggering the nitrous at Wide open throttle, in case you didn't know. ZEX made a kit for the 07-13, but won't answer questions about the 15, as they haven't tested it. Any info is appreciated. Mike

I autocross my Fit. It's an auto and doesn't have that many performance mods. But its a fun time. No action shots, but here I am next to a Dodge Viper ACR.
