The Fit comes with an auto immobilizer, so why do you need a car alarm? Anyway, not good news for you: deactivated KARR alarm that most honda dealers install on all new vehicles Karr Security System This is not standard on any Fit from Honda the manufacturer. Ask your dealer.

Update! New tank and I got all my fittings. Almost ready to go on the car, I'm just waiting for a couple suspension parts to come in and it'll be good to go. Aiming to install next Saturday

Officially out of bumper to bumper warranty. Just another summary thread. Jellybean was assembled in the last week of Dec 2014. I feared all the quality issues I read on this board. Thankfully, it's been pretty trouble free. Why purchase? I have arthritis in my left hip. Pushing most clutches is miserable. The Fit's clutch is light. Seat is high. No pain. Amazingly enough, finding manual transmission cars is tough these days. Pros Little go cart. Nimble. Responsive. ...

I have been checking for updates on Honda's website for the new 2017 models and if you click on FIT you see 2016/2017 now. Looks like there is no difference at all between the first 3 years. Seems to be the same engine, body, trim levels, except there is a new name for the silver paint color. WhoopDeDoooo! Kinda disappointed to see nothing's changed. Am I the only one that thinks this way? Granted, I have been actually looking for the new 2017 HRV specs because I may ...

This is pretty good info about synthetics: Here's another good one. I wonder how these myths start? There's a lot of them:

Is Synthetic Motor Oil Better For Your Car? - YouTube

2016 Fit oil?
"We have a "new" 2016 Fit which we bought used with 2500 miles. We got it from a large local dealer who used it as an errand car, so I am working on the basis that it wasn't hot-rodded for 2k miles. I suspect we are a ways off from our first oil change but I was wondering about recommendations? I am not going to be doing this myself but once I have an idea what might be good for the car I can talk to the local place we use for such things, ask if they are willing to do what I want and if not find someplace else. What about synthetic oil? I know it is more expensive and I always used standard oils in my old car because it is 35 years old. They say synthetics are okay for new cars because they are tight, but tend to just leak out tiny gaps in old, worn cars. Is this a time where it makes ..."

Hi all I am going to be working under my car for the first time. I am a bit nervous about it. I do a lot of mechanics on scientific machines, bicycles, and the house so I am pretty mechanically inclined. I have a question on the transmission drain and fill. I am going to jack it up on the center front jack point (it is pretty far back there that upside down dome with the hole going to be tough to reach) and put it on the jackstands at the two side front points. Should I ...

New toys. Sprintex 70mm and 65 mm pulleys good for ~11 psi and ~12 psi respectively I believe. Pulley puller from Track Dog Racing. I don't have the pulley installer yet. Don't know when I will be installing the 70 mm because the pulley will likely blow out the stock muffler per Sprintex caution. My exhaust system is being sorted in the next couples of weeks.

Hi there! I wasn't sure if I could ask this here (it's also my first post) but I'm thinking about buying a white 2013 Honda Fit Sport. It may be a dumb question but is a dealership supposed to be able to sell it despite the recall? Edit: I was told that they replaced the airbag but I don't know if it's true. Technically it is illegal for them to sell it without the repaired airbag but who knows...

Back in February, I sold my '15 Fit LX after buying a brand new '15 Sonic LT that was left over at the dealership. I just recently spotted my old Fit at its new residence, and it looked pretty grim. A nasty dent on the rear quarter, some paint scraps, and it looked it hasn't been cleaned since it was bought. Apparently, the young lady who bought it hasn't kept it as pristine as I did. Regardless, in the six months since, it was good to reflect on what I miss, and ...

Thanks!!! I am still adding to the X bar set up. I'm still waiting on my Cusco OS rear strut bar. It's a 10 week wait, so, by October. I will connect the two bars that are connected to the rear shocks and connect it to the Cusco bar when it arrives. For now, its just temporarily there on the shocks. Glad you liked them.

When did you realize your Fit had been recalled / when did you receive the notice in the mail? Where you able to get a rental or loaner? What make/model? Where do you live and has your airbag been replaced yet? I checked my VIN online on 3/24 and discovered mine had been recalled. The very next day I contacted the dealer, parked my 2013 Fit (~21,100 miles) in my garage and got a loaner from Enterprise (Chrysler 200, which I do not love; I am tempted to ask for ...

Hi Guys, I spent $27,500 to buy the new FIT Hybrid 2015 model. With that same money I could have got a Hyundai Creta, or Hyundai I20 Active. However, as I wanted a Hybrid and also due to the fact that Honda has a very good reliability records. But after having driven the car for the first time I realise that there is something very wrong with the lack of shock absorbing ability. The vehicle cannot support rough roads as it will kill the suspension over a short period of ...

Installed my EBC USR Rotors and Hawk HPS Pads. Braking is much improved, as well as aesthetic I'm lazy with pictures as you all know, so I'm probably gonna wait til the halos are on before I take a bunch of pics.
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."

I own a 2015 FIT Sports package and the only thing I hate about this car is the roughness of the ride on rough roads. Other than that my FIT is a very good car altogether. Though it feels that the shock is not absorbing on rough roads, the FIT (S) model is very quiet on smooth surfaces. I have been told that the FIT F and L models are much smoother on rough roads due to the smaller wheel size (15") as oppose to the S model which came with (16") wheels. So the question for ...
