2008 Sport with 199,100 miles and still averaging 34MPG. Aside from tires and oil changes, the only big maintenance I've had done is coil packs/plugs (did myself), and a valve adjustment at 150K. That's it. Best car i've ever owned.

Add brakes, a drive belt, and one fuel pump to the list and that's how our's has been. More valve adjustments, but that's just because I can do them pretty quickly now.

2008 Fit Sport auto, currently at 247,800 miles. Overall it has been a great car. Oil changes have been Mobil1 since the 1st change and the auto trans fluid is always the Honda brand. Fluids are changed when the computer tells me to. I try to adjust the valves every year. I've replaced the wear items as needed- spark plugs, belts, brake pads, tires, and shocks. We've been rear ended 3 times so far which were thankfully all minor. Windshield was replaced after seeing too many gravel trucks.


As far as major-ish things that I have replaced:
Vtec oil switch went bad
Two of the ignition coils- common thing to go bad
The AC started leaking inside so I replaced the Evaporator and Expansion valve
The AC condenser fan flat out died- replaced it
The radiator- SUPER BRITTLE plastic broke removing the upper hose to get to the AC fan
Two wheel lugs after breaking\ cross threading (thanks Discount Tire)
Transmission mount was dead- these are apparently a common issue
I'll need a new Catalytic Converter since I've had a p0420 code for the past month.

Check O2 sensors before replacing the catalytic converter. They degrade over time so it might be them and not the cat.
