If memory serves, the Fit is 850 lb. Since the Fit always has to have a driver, if the average driver weighs 150 lb., that means you've...

I wonder if your injectors are on the way out. Even at 89K, I'd contact Honda corporate and let them know of your problem. Doesn't hurt to ask, and they might be willing to help on any repair.

If it were me, it would be a no-brainer, get the Michelins. Last two cars had Michelin Defender and Hydroedge; both did very well in rain where other tires tended to slide all over.

I don't like the idea of overfilling, it leads to foaming and reduces the ability of the oil to do its job. I would be hesitant to stick in more oil. Maybe keep a close eye on it and take a few...

If the window motor is actuating on the frozen windows, then it's probably ice getting stuck at the seals at a spot you can't see or get at.
