Any maintenance history?

It's nearing time for a plug change and valve adjustment. Not hard to do yourself if you're mechanically capable.

What are they asking? Make sure to check KBB.com...

Oil - quality full synthetic 5w20 or 5w30 (blends are only a tiny bit cheaper so why bother?) (my personal choice for our Fit is Castrol Edge 5w30, but many are good)

No leaks in our '08, my friends '09 or my Mom's '11. It is a legit problem that some people seem to have though. Just check the one you're...

I would say that all fingers point to the starter or wiring to the starter being weak.

Have to also consider any associated wiring including the starter button, starter relay, etc.

You can thank me for the fuel price increase. I bought a full size 4x4 pick up truck earlier this year and tuned it for 93 octane. Watching fuel prices go up and up ever since. Last fill up was...

I bought a brake bleeder kit many years ago, but either I'm not very good with it or it's not very good. It's the vacuum squeeze pump style.

For me, it's easiest to just have the wife sit in the...

Since we are only talking a few parts (expensive parts, but just parts) you'd be better off just updating your fuel system to the current. Hard to beat sticking with a good platform that is running...

The tint started life as 20% Solar Guard Metallic, but it has faded over time. It's starting to get a slight hint of blue. I can't complain too much given that it's 11 1/2 years old. Will probably...

Yeah, it's fun to basically beat on it. Even more rewarding with the camshaft and Hondata now. It almost likes to rev. Not anything like a real vtec motor, but it's better.

Close! What year did you buy yours?

I'm guessing there's not a lot of people that choose to buy and then own an "economy" car for 11 years.

I was happy when FL repealed the helmet law because I didn't like sitting in Daytona traffic wearing a helmet. When you spend an entire afternoon in FL heat and don't get over 15mph, you really...

The big difference is up at speed and the way they handle airflow and wind noise.

My Mom is in your boat except she has over 100k miles. Even with that mileage, there's no real reason to change. Generally speaking, GD and GE Fits, if well maintained, last a really long time. I...

Very cool!

Should be a ton of fun to drive with the smooth torque delivery of the 1.5t combined with the sharper handling of a GD Fit!
