2009 5 speed manual with 168,000 miles. Battery was replace in 2014. All the coils were changed shortly after. A/C system was replaced 1 years ago from bad A/C compressor. A/C run pretty much year round in Tampa FL. Modified OEM CMC with CDV bypass purchased from a guy on the CRZ forum lasted about 70,000 miles. I replaced it this past weekend with a new CMC from 05 Civic along with a braided stainless steel clutch line. EGR went back earlier this year. Brought a block off plate because FL doesn't have emission testing. Conti Extreme Contract DWS is my third set of tires. Prior set was Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 205/50R16 that I really really like but at current $141.45 a pop from TireRack it is just too expensive. I wore down the tread on the Michelin Pilot to bald and traction was event better in the dry. In the rain I slip and slide all over. I beat on my car during daily 55 miles commute and redline whenever possible. Valve was adjusted twice by me and once by the dealer during the valve recall in 2011. I am on my third set of spark plugs. Yeah my gas mileage ranges between 28 32 mpg from being heavy footed. Wesley Chapel Honda did my airbag recall last month after 6 month wait. This is one reliable daily beater but my wife claim her stock 2009 Mazda MX-5 NC with 30,000 miles takes the cake.

About to hit 150,000 on my 2012 base MT (at like 149,500). Mostly freeway miles.

Five sets of wiper blades.
Fourth set of tires.
Three replacement headlight bulbs.
Two sets of front brake pads (75k, 140k).
One set of spark plugs (120k) and valve adjustment.

Still on original battery, hoses, drive belts, etc.

Radio knob is being stupid, but other than that, it's only cosmetic. The hood is looks sandblasted it's been chipped so badly. Headrests don't like to go up and down easily anymore. Headlight lenses seem to be fogging from the inside (weird). Hard plastic interior trim pieces have scratched.

Gas mileage has been slowly dropping. Instead of regularly getting 37 MPG it is now more like 33 MPG. But for a paid-off car that still drives like it did when I rolled off the lot five years ago, I won't complain. It's great.

Haven't posted on here for a very long time so thought I would.. Love my '09 Sport Taffeta white manual! 89,000 mi. Has been so reliable with little maintenance. Original brakes. Had the manual transmission fluid changed at 50k at the recom of a dealer. Do I need to be doing that again? What about the original coolant, should I have it flushed and replaced? My head lights are not peeling. Bought it brand new on July 31st '09 under the only good thing Obama ever did for me, personally: Cash for Clunkers. Lol. With sales tax it was $13,054 out the door. The only four upgrades I made early on were to go to beautiful 17" Momo wheels, powder coating them white (Tire size 215/45R 17. I love how the offset on these wheels pushed the tires out a bit giving the car a more sporty macho look, IMO), to have a sunroof installed, to have the windows darkly tinted, and to self install a frame mounted receiver hitch allowing me to carry a rear cargo tray when needed for additional hauling capacity. Due to the fold flat rear seats, I camp out in my car at times, calling it FitRV. take my word for it, it is way better than tent camping! Having this rear tray gives me the room inside for sleeping in the back. I actually lay the front passenger seat down and use foam pads with my legs draped over the reclined seat back, allowing me to stretch out fully. Sleeping in FitRV is every bit as comfortable as sleeping in my own bed! When I get cold, I just warm the car for 45 minutes or so. Hope to keep it many more years though every once in awhile I have this tinge of wanting a different vehicle due soley to feeling vulnerable driving it on this big city's freeways when its so small and light. Would only want another manual. Possibilities I have thought of with a manual in a larger vehicle have been of very few choices: a Camaro (not utilitarian at all like my Fit), or a big solid truck. Manuals are so rare in trucks these days! How about the only way to get a manual in a Dodge Ram is going with a Diesel 2500 or 3500 at huge money! NOT! I have decided to stay with this beautiful little car and remain vigilintly cautious on busy highways, praying for my Creator's continued protection! Hope ya all are loving yours as much as I do mine! I really am blessed to have it!

I have 210,000 miles on a 2009 Honda Fit Sport Manual.
I had to replace the blower motor for the air conditioning. I bought an after market motor for around $40 I think. It is a really simple install. I just watched a Youtube video to find out how.
This car has always burned more oil than I would prefer. I have never measured it exactly. I probably put 1.5 to 2 quarts between oil changes. It finally destroyed my catalytic converter. $1000 repair at around 200,000 miles.
I have only ever used Mobile 1 5w-20. I change it when the maintenance minder tells me, which is around 10,000 miles. I have had the oil tested by Blackstone labs a few times and it is always fine.
The clutch used to squeak a bit and I was worried about it. It eventually went back to being quiet. I also thought the clutch was slipping a bit for a while and I was worried about it. However, for the last 50,000 miles or so the clutch has been great. Kind of strange.
I am getting a kind of crunching noise from the front suspension. It comes and goes. It is worse during cold weather. I have had this for a long time, maybe since 40,000 miles. I just read that some silicone spray might do the trick. Or maybe something is cracked.
Well that is all the problems I think.
I do my own oil and filter changes.
I have paid for spark plugs and a brake fluid flush, and the cat.
There was also the Takata air bag recall for both front airbags.
Other than that it has never seen a repair shop.
The sport panels make the car too low to the ground. The front lip is always scraping the ground going in and out of driveways.

I have 91,000 on my 09 base Fit. The A/C went out I'll have to have that repaired next summer. The only other broken part was the 3'd clutch transmission sensor which I replaced myself. I'll probably have to replace the spark plugs next summer as well though I will try to do it myself and remove the darn cowl. It is annoying that people post great DIY's here and the pictures expire.

The only other annoying thing is it only gets about 40k miles on a set of tires. Stock replaced at 35k, General Altimax at 85k now running Kumho's.

66000 on an 09 sport M/T and 27000 on a 12' sport M/T. only issues are cosmetic and the driver and hatch door locks on the 09 have a high pitched moan.
