A day late, but its easier to post on social media on the go than it is here.



Happened yesterday on 95 after just passing Lumberton Honda in NC.


Also finally managed to take a photo here. I've either missed it or it was too dark.

Here's a complete list of things I've done since I've owned it, which includes the oil changes haha. Also included are some notes (in italics) on top of my notes.

Before ownership - and off the top of my head - it's had a shifter assembly change, windshield or two, O2 sensors, alternator was replaced with a used one, A/C compressor was replaced with an aftermarket one and broke shortly after that, front struts replaced with used ones that had 10k miles, plugs and coilpacks, I believe three clutch changes, I'm sure pads and rotors, the lost motion springs were replaced under the recall...

Holy smokes! Great stuff!

If you're ever back in the Canadian east coast give me a holler. We bought our HR-V from Fundy Honda! My wife's father was a service tech there when it was a Pontiac dealership.

Mileage is 502-something thousand. Been ignoring the Fit for a little since coming back from Florida. My Miata was down since Thanksgiving and since I've fixed it, it's been getting driven almost every day. I did drive the Fit to New Jersey on Tuesday because my buddy is over 6' tall and wouldn't be comfy in a Miata with a hardtop.

Glad y'all are loving it.

Unfortunately updates will most likely be slow for a little bit. I'll try to provide photogenic content if the opportunity comes up.

Here are some random photos of it. The one with the Audi hearse was when I was at my buddy's shop. Funny story I was the one that drove it from RI to PA when it was shipped stateside and I was there when it was sold... to someone from RI.



Here are some random Eastern Canada Honda dealer photos-

Still rolling along! Been driving the Miata more than I should and this has been sitting on the side lines most of the time unless it decides to snow.

The only issues i've had so far were the wipers being slow or non-op unless the switch is on high. Too lazy to swap my factory switch to diagnose it and determine whether my CR-V/Insight switch is bad or if my motors or whatever resistors are giving out. Another is my three month old Mitsuboshi belt with 10k-ish miles is squeaking.

Not much to update here. Mileage is about 506,500.

Replaced the wiper motor with a refurbished unit. Low speed setting was terribly slow and would eventually not function anymore. I used to be able to get it working again after a few seconds, but that only lasted so long. After only using my wipers on high for a month, I finally swapped motors.





Took the Fit on it's first road trip this year, to Ithaca, NY.





Also drove my friend's Canadian spec Fit. She has an A'pexi Accelerator Controller, Progress RSB, Hawk HPS pads, and Mugen short shifter along with a few other little things. Was cool to drive one of these with those mods along with a fraction of the mileage. Also loved seeing the little differences between US and Canadian Fits.

Shortly after posting this morning, I had walked out to something unfortunate. This happened outside my house and the neighbors don't have cameras sadly.

Tough pill to swallow this morning.

Sorry to see this. The person who did this will pay the price in life.

Thanks guys, but life goes on. I'll probably pull the dent out as much as possible next week if I feel like it.

A friend of mine had visited Japan and even stopped at Spoon/Type One. I was given a shift knob along with a few other things. Can't get more legit than that.




I know the car's a mess. I haven't gotten to spring cleaning mode with it yet.
