i got a new STI today so will be selling my '12 GE in the next week or two. the STI comes with summer tires so will drive my GE till I know for certain there is no more heavy snow. i will still hang around here as i will still work on my wife's '16 GK, mainly for maintenance.

"Note: Account was hacked and subject line was altered. Im in the market for a 08Fit Sport MT, probably going to get a Storm Silver or Black in the next 3-4wks. Im not 100% commited yet. Im coming from a leased 06 CivicEX sedan AT which I plan on returning. Im going to buy the Fit cash. It's not that the civic is bad in any way... i just like small boxy cars and given that i don't drive my hobby cars in the snow (or much of rain either.... im a detailing freak), i want a small MT car that I can play with all season long. When it comes to the Fit, im a complete newb...meaning, i only started reading this forum last night in detail.

I am going to get a used Fit, and wondering what is the best to get. What should I look for and what features should I check. Also what has been everyones experience with that year of model.

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."

Could not believe Honda does not include floor mats on the new LX. Guess I will have to pay Honda prices, unless I can find a used set.

I'll cut to the chase; Thinking about picking up a new 2016 honda fit with the manufacturer promotional apr of 1.9%. I have read NUMEROUS issues with the 2015. I am aware 2015 was made in mexico and every model I've seen of 2016 is made in Japan. Have many or all of these issues been resolved? Few nuances come to mind; forgive the lack of format to my post. 1. is the ride any quieter in the 2016? I plan to grab an automatic 2.How annoying is it there is a drink holder ...

Tall Fit drivers: It is fairly simple and cheap to move the driver's seat back a couple inches. It only took about $20-30 worth of parts, a few simple tools (although you'll be happier if you have some power tools), and a Saturday afternoon to make it happen. I made no permanent alterations to my Fit; everything is 100% un-doable and can be returned to factory state. 2 is really the only distance you can move the seat without having to modify anything in your Fit. Less ...

This is why I'm not replacing my door handles. I worry about trim pieces and clips getting broken. Then I have to wait until the broken pieces are ordered.
Quoted from James Butler's post
"I called last week to get an early apointment for recall. It is a long drive from the next county to the Honda dealership. I set up for Monday morning at 7:00 AM. I got up a 5:30 and headed in. I was first in line at 6:45 at the service door before they opened them. They took my car at 7:00 AM. I went to the wainting room and waited for 5 hours until they came to get me to tell me it was complete. I got the paper work but before I got out they told me they broke off a door panel piece doing the work. They decided they would have to order a replacement and I would have to come back in for the install. I saw lots of cars come in get fixed and go before mine was finished. I looks like they do the paying customers first and warrenty when they get some free time. What good is an appointment? ..."

I have a 2007 Honda Fit Sport with a manual transmission. It has 109,000 miles on it and the check engine light came on. I notice that when I get up to about 4000rpm it kinda bogs down and makes a rattling sound like something is clicking. The engine code (i don't remember the exact code now) but it suggested that the catalytic converter was not performing as it should. Same thing when I took it to the Texas State Inspection. I have seen a few catalytic converters on ebay ...

I am trying to decide whether to trade in my 2013 Fit Sport for a used CR-V. The Fit seems to have a good trade-in value and it seems I can get a used CR-V at a decent price. My issues: I miss having AWD (I live in Maine), though the Fit has gotten somewhat better in the snow since replacing the original tires, so I may be able to survive without it. The biggest reason I'm considering a trade-in is that my two kids are now older (elementary school) and it's starting to feel ...

I love the graphs you posted. Thanks for putting them up. I tried to explain to someone offline about the CVT's peak power under-the-curve over time vs a manual but they didn't quite comprehend what I was getting at. The graph nails it visually. Beautiful! How you do that btw? BTW: There is a to get the CVT rpm to peak out much earlier than normal. I gave it a name called 'Myxal Two-Step' because I couldn't find a name for it on the net but people have been doing ...

There has been a recall already to reprogram it. Older hondas fit with cvt has a lot of problems when high milage is present. Check it in youtube. Newer cvt still reliable but future will tell. If you want reliability remember not to buy first year gen car. Wait at least one year. Mid refresh should be by 2017 so there you go. Here is CR talking about reliability.

Both are good options. I will say the spoon reps will be an easier install. Everyone said the hardest part would be to snake the wires through the door housing, but honestly the hardest thing for me was actually getting the cover to snap into the housing. I ended up breaking a clip in the bottom corner on both covers to get it to fit. Even then the fitment is about 7/10. But then again it was only 100 bucks

Hello all. I have a question. Today I called Honda dealer to make an appointment for the service. I was told before for a mecanic they use 5w30 oil(non syntethic) in all their cars. I told him that in the maintenance book it says 0w20 and he says it was incorrect the book that "honda mexico" says it should be used 5w30. They also state that I will lose my warranty if I do not do the maintenance(oil, and filter) every 3 miles and i should never go above 6 miles or I lose my ...

Those mats seem to have no tread to grip your boots. Are they not really slippery getting in and out? Even though my Husky mats have some tread I find them slippery when wet with rain or snow getting in and out of the car. I find the treads for the driver mat, the ones parallel to the pedals, should go perpendicular to the pedals (pointing to the doors) for better grip. Here is the Husy mats for the 2015 Fit:

Took my 2015 Fit to dealer yesterday for oil change and tire rotation. Service Writer informed there was a recall to replace door handle back up plates because of a rusting problem. I didn't have time (2-3 hour job) but will set up an appointment in the next week or two to have this done. I had heard of this problem in Canada but this is a first here in Washington. He said they got the recall bulletin on January 10.

Interesting! I was wondering to what extent the open hood would have helped with the intake. The intake (Myxal Short Ram) I had made and tested that was very similar to the tested intake had IATs around 150-165F at the dragstrip when outside temps were around 75F. This is while idling waiting in the staging lanes to run. My 1/4 mile runs suffered as well, running 1-2mph slower than stock (81-82mph vs 82-83mph) and 1-2/10th's of a second slower than stock (17.3-17.4 vs ...
