What I don't like?

- The piss-poor paint job....small chips appearing everywhere with each wash...and I use the stuff honda sold me to wash the car as well as micro-fiber cloths...I even got the protective coating honda sold me and put on when I bought the car that is supposed to last for like 5 years or something....complete bs and I will bring it up at the next appointed oil change
- Static shock when exiting....however, its easy to grab the door-frame on the way out as not to get shocked : )
- back wiper not intermittent...


Other than that, I absolutely love my Fit!!

Where are the blind spot? Behind and to your right? Or is it the window pillar that is in the way? For the rear I have mirrors that take care of that blind spot, for the window pillar, you just have to get use to moving your head sideways a little to se behind that pillar.

I can adjust the hight on the seat a little. It is a turning knob on the bottom on the left side of the left seat (and right side of the right seat) that rises the seat a little in the back. I like it at the lowest point. Feels like driving a truck when in high possition.

no body wants the freaking 1.3 lol also a moonroof would make my life

Thanks for that. I already use one of those. Just saying it's a hair magnet, more than any other car I've owned.

You would think that with the Fit/Jazz veing out for awhile in other markets that there wouldn't be a paint problem. It also seems as though some are reporting paint problems and others are not...very strange. Reminds me of the Element windshield cracking issue, some had it others did not.

Since my comfort thread got moved, I'll post here also. The only thing I don't like is not being comfortable and having backpain. The Fit is almost perfect for me otherwise. I just noticed yesterday that the cruise control does alot of correcting on going up hills (even small hills). It seems to accelerate much more than if I just drive it own my own. It still is a great car and probably best in its class.

i just remembered another thing i don't like about the fit.

i don't like the place for change on the left bottom side of the steering wheel. whenever i go fast up a hill or something it all flies out onto me and the floor.

The Deadpedal is the only Gripe

IDK if most of you guys are comming from other cars, but everything you dont like, has been "honda" since 73, Honda never has multi intermintant settings on there wipers, or any settings on the rear wipers, Hondas never had arm rests, and they also dont have DRL. Im not saying its kool, it sucks, but its just the way honda works.

I guess I'm just used to having the luxury division... My 94 LS teg has the armrest, dead pedal, floor mats, light in glove box (with lock) and other minor things =) standard

Okay, I'll add my 2 cents....
Too thin paint- scratches way too easily (especially on bumper/fender interface)!
No Dead pedal (thanx Zeta)
More power (Thanx ASPEC-but another 20 would be nice)
No Cargo cover (made my own, came out great!)
Cheap 'carpet' forced me to buy floormats.....
$100 replacement keys

Still despite that, Love this car! Fun to drive, comfy seats, decent stereo, great flexibility, handles great for a 'tall car!' Plus I love that I don't 2 million around like the PT Cruisers I was considering before.....

I just noticed this last night. I always took it for granted that gloveboxes had lights in them -- this is the first car I've had that doesn't. It's a small inconvenience now since there's nothing in there, but I can see it getting more annoying as more stuff clutters inside.
