New Fit owner!

hello everyone,
I bought a brand new 2016 Honda Fit EX-L NAVI, with a six speed manual. Less than 200 km on it when I rolled off the lot. Got a nice deal on it because it's top of the line, but most people around here nowadays don't want a manual transmission! I came here out of curiosity because I've looked everywhere for another EX-L NAVI 6MT and it's almost as if they don't exist, or they are few and far between.

Have fun, have a great day, and hopefully I'll "fit" in.


-Adam

Welcome!

Lucky you! They don't offer a manual transmission with the EX-L trim in the USA.

I just bought a 2016 EX model, CVT, with 1500 miles on it, also a very good cost.
I would have certainly considered a manual transmission if the price was that much better, however I did get this one at about $5K lower than KBB valuation.
I am looking for a tow hole cover though that doesn't cost $25; it is just a round plug of plastic, a fair price would be ~$8.

Enjoy...
Oddly, the buying audience might be somewhat exclusive but I think a considerable number of people in the USA would LOVE a Honda Fit EX-L Nav, with a manual transmission.

Or let's put it this way...I think those that would want that vehicle...would REALLY want that vehicle.

My prior vehicle, which I still have, is a Toyota Yaris manual transmission. I had to travel far to get the manual transmission model.
The CVT Fit transmission tries to give some shiftability, but I don't quite understand the logic that they have built in, or the practicality.
It is nicer to have than not I guess, but the transmission certainly has a life of its own, and will only take shifting directives as mild suggestions, when it thinks you have made the wrong decision it will overrule you.

Also, I've seen some information on the web that Fits built in Mexico may have some issues? Is there any real proof of this, or is it just hearsay?
