New 2013 Fit Owner

Hello Fit Forum

New member here with a new (to me) Fit in the stable now. I am going from a 2011 370Z 6MT daily driver to a 2013 Fit DX. I had 99,300 miles on the Z when our Honda dealer (my wife drives a 2015 Accord Sport) gave me a line on an incoming trade. A silver 2013 Fit with 25K miles. I went ahead and got the extended warranty to 100K miles and the road hazard warranty as well (covers wheel and tire damage). I just picked it up yesterday after the dealer cleaned it up and gave it a nice polish.

I need to do a lot more reading on here to figure out a few things, but I'm excited to have the new vehicle and a new community of great people (so I hear) to interact with. And maybe catch up with some old friends - hi Mr. Kenchan

Cheers,
JAR

Welcome JARblue. It's funny that I considered getting 370 6MT instead of my Fit. But the commute would've killed my clutch leg.

That's a amazingly low mileage for a 2013.
My 2016, which I bought late in the 2016 model year, and I still think of as being "New"...has nearly that many miles on it.

Enjoy, I owned a Gen 2 Fit, and really liked it.

Unfortunately, it's an AT. But I really needed an AT since I want my wife to be able to take it to work on occasion. The manual in the Z is just too much for her commute to work - a very hilly 45 minutes in stop-and-go traffic is the reason she gave up the Z as her daily driver back in 2012.

I'll try to post up some pics later this weekend

I replied this weekend, but I guess the post was moderated. Assuming I need more posts before I can link or upload photos. Been doing more reading than anything.

Unfortunately, the Fit is an AT. I needed something that my wife could take to work on occasion. We originally bought the Z for her daily, but about a year in her commute went from 15 min all highway no traffic to 45 min across town all traffic and lots of hills.

I plan to pick up some all weather floor mats and dry intake air filter to start with. Future plans include a new head unit and some wheels and Michelin All Seasons. These spare tire wheels just aren't cutting it on the highway. Mr. Kenchan, you think I can do a square setup on the Fit using front sport wheels from the Z? Half joking, half serious here lol.

yah unfortunately PCD is different to start. i imagined wat it would look like, will need super flush a toilet to fit. lol

as for floor liners, i'd go with the Husky's. they are cheaper than weathertechs and good coverage, well on my GK that is.
