Toyota lists the Camry's ground clearance as 6.1 inches. Honda doesn't list the Fit's ground clearance, but other unofficial sources list it as being around 5 or 5.5 inches. It's certainly in the...

Maybe if you take the wheels off the bike you'll be able to fit it in the car with the other stuff. Having the front wheel off (in particular) makes the bike able to fit into a much thinner space...

I would guess that would be considered a total loss by insurance, though it's not too easy to say for sure from the picture (and I'm certainly no insurance adjuster). If it were my car, I would...

The Fit does as well in the snow as most any smallish front wheel drive vehicle, which is to say it's not bad at all. Good snow tires do help a good bit, of course. The ground clearance is perhaps...

You can get an idea of how it's coming along from the percent oil life display. For a cross-country trip with lots of highway driving, you'll generally get at least 1000 miles per 10% on the...

There's nothing magical about 30,000 miles that needs special service. I'd follow the owner's manual recommendations (which, as Uncle Gary said, are mostly just doing what the maintenance minder...

I can think of two possibilities.

First, poor grounds can cause all sorts of weird electrical issues. It's not uncommon on the Fit, I gather, for the main battery ground connection to the frame...

I've driven most of the way from Vermont to Florida with a loose/insecure balance weight and the corresponding unbalanced wheel. It's not ideal for tire life, and it's less comfortable at highway...

I personally would probably go for the minivan, small streets notwithstanding. Sliding doors are very practical particularly with little ones in car seats. Besides that, a happy wife makes for a...

It seems you're making decent progress, and it may be rather valuable when you're done for others to know what exactly gave the most quieting for the least amount of work.

Sudden complete loss of electric power when starting implies a bad connection somewhere at the battery--either a loose wire connection to the battery, or a bad/rusted out ground connection to the...

You're hinting at a class action lawsuit because different cars with different transmissions have differing maintenance schedules? Really?

I have not heard of may Fit automatic transmissions...

Whether the book value of your car is important or not really depends on whether or not you're selling it (be it to an insurance company or to a dealer or a private party). If you don't intend to...

I would guess it's more using the cell phone to go through an unlock app setup that the car maker has. A cell phone would have no way of communicating with a key fob in the house, though I guess a...

It's far too early for me to tell; I only have 99.5k miles on my 2012 Fit, and I don't intend to replace it anytime soon. Maybe if you ask again in five or so years I'll have a better answer.

By rough do you mean the engine stumbles or sounds somewhat intermittent, or just that the car or parts of the car vibrate or rattle while the engine itself idles smoothly?

If it's the latter, I...

If it isn't condensation, probably the commonest cause of the oil level increasing over time is coolant finding its way into the oil due to a blow head gasket.

Gas, being more volatile than water,...

I've seen such articles a few times, and I remain somewhat skeptical.

It appears to me that they (the tire makers and so forth) are perhaps as much trying to limit their liability as promoting...

The battery light on the dashboard refers to the car's electrical system, not the key fob. Likely you would be able to jump start your car.

If you take only short trips and/or leave the car...

I don't think that small of a difference would matter. You do, of course, want to keep the similar tires paired across an axle. The only significant concern I can think of would be some of the...

You have hills in California, as I recall from visiting there. (That's not always true of every state I've driven through.) If the engine runs fine on a hill, and it does, then it will run fine...
