That bubble appears to have formed over the seam sealer Honda uses to “seal seams” (duh). I suspect the plastic sealer has “outgassed” a bit, lifting the paint.

I haven't seen it on my white Fit,...

Well, mine is doing just fine, but if I’m to believe what I read here ALL the ‘15’s have bad injectors and ALL will fail. It’s just a matter of time.

So the takeaway from this thread is: “yes, the ‘15 Fit IS really that bad. If you have one, unload it now, preferably to someone who hasn’t read this.”

Similar thing happened to my ‘15 Fit. Intermittent failure to start when the button was pushed. It turned out to be a bad starter motor.

My ‘15 in Orchid White Pearl was painted in Mexico and is perfect after being exposed to heavy road salt for several winters so all Mexican made Fits are not equally affected.

I showed the 2015/17 yellow color to my brother. He said the car, “looks like a Marshmallow Peep!”

Personally I’m disappointed they don’t offer orange or green on the Fit.

Seeing as the “bumper to bumper” warranty is only 3 years/36,000 miles, EVERY ‘15 Fit is “out of warranty.”

Same here. Someday, when my car drives itself, I’ll worry about a center armrest. Until then I’ll keep my hands on the steering wheel.

I must be one of the five then. I bought my first new car in 1979 and it was a manual. I've owned and driven NOTHING but manuals for the past 40 years.

My right rear tire was half worn out at 8,000 miles (15 EX). Dealer determined rear axle was built out of spec and couldn’t be aligned. They replaced the axle but not the worn tire.
