It's a wear and tear observation. Nothing unexpected. Normal engine condition after 52K miles. I would discount the dealer's recommendations. Keep driving and spend your time changing oil/filter...

Why did you have to replace the injectors? Using premium gas is not cost effective, psychologically, maybe. I'm surprised you had to so cautious to get the Fit to run right. I have a 2017 LX CVT with...
