Arrow 47k miles later and I'm still in love...

This 2017 Honda Fit has been the easiest, most reliable piece of my existence. I have 0 complaints.

Twin brother here, with CVT. All it wants is a little unbranded gas and an oil change once in a while.

Completely agree. After 34,000 miles the car has put its best foot forward every time.

We love it.

Have got only 35k on our GK. It's been reliable so far since I have a company car to drive South across the border to our HO most of the time.
Will wait till it reaches 135k to see if this Mexican baby can be as dependable as my previous '07 GD!!!
For now, am certainly enjoying the vastly improved mpg.
Gotta do springs (RS-R or Eibachs) to alleviate the bounciness. My project for 2019!!!
Shifting the 6-speed and experiencing the DOHC VTEC in action is a continual joy for my household.

I didn't want to start a new thread over this. Must be a joke to get me into the dealer to buy a new car. An email from my Honda Fit purchasing dealer. When I saw "Vehicle Exchange Program", I was thinking maybe the dealer wants me to drive another Honda for a week free of charge, NOT

You've been selected to take part in our Vehicle Exchange Program! Our records indicate that your 2017 HONDA FIT is in high demand and Classic Honda Galveston would like the opportunity to either purchase or trade your FIT above the current book value.

Based on your estimated equity position and our “Customer Only” discounts, along with factory incentives at an all-time high, you may be able to upgrade to a brand new model for less money than any other time this year. Many times you can trade your vehicle with no money down and possibly lower your monthly payment! Even if your car is paid off, we also have great incentives for cash buyers!

That's just a marketing scheme. I've received that a few times with my Fit and my 4Runner a few years after ownership.

Those buy back programs are just a way to milk a few more dollars out of you. You'll end up with i higher monthly payment (if on loan) in an almost identical car.

The thing that really pushes me over the edge is the insistant calls from scammers who tell you "your factory warenty is about to expire, act now or else", cretons.

No complaints?
I like my 2016 Honda Fit, I liked my 2010....hey...I like Honda Fits....

But I've never owned ANY vehicle that didn't have a few flaws.

I'm not going to rehash here. But you should check out the "Things you don't like about your Fit" thread. Then do some soul searching and see if Love isn't blind.

I really like my Fit...but no vehicle I've ever owned has been an absolute...no complaints situation.

I don't think recognizing a few flaws is inconsistent with loving my Fit. I have more than a few flaws, and my partner loves me ;-)

Watch the videos on YouTube. Do a search on "Tesla problems". Tesla is desperate to make their out the door numbers so they're slapping them together and pushing them out. Some of these are really interesting. Generally the owners still really love their cars in spite of the crap they have to put up with. My most recent favorite is:

Tesla: The real cost of being out of warranty
