2008 Honda Fit Problems

Front Door Arm Rest May Break

One or both front door armrests may crack. Our technicians tell us a revised door panel is available to correct this issue.

Rear Washer Nozzle Borken or Missing

The rear washer nozzle may be broken or missing, commonly caused by ice scraper damage. A revised rear washer nozzle is available.

Check Engine Light and Stuttering While Driving

The Honda Fit is known for sudden, poor drivability issues, as soon as 50,000 miles, such as:

  • Loss of power 
  • Engine Stalling 
  • Stuttering at highway speed 
  • Check engine light intermittent or flashing
  • "D4" light on intermittently or flashing 
  • OBD trouble code(s) P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303, and/or P0304
  • One or more ignition coils may fail unexpectedly, even though the code may clear.

    The coil packs will cause engine misfires during normal operation, and must be replaced to ensure engine performance.

    Cleaning and applying dielectric grease may help in very few cases.

    Water Damage to Window Switch

    These Honda Fit models are being recalled a second time to correct a concern of water intrusion into the driver's power window switch that was not completely addressed by the first recall. Water entry into the switch can cause switch failure and possibly a fire. Dealers will inspect the switch, if damage is found the switch will be replaced. If no damage is found the owner will be asked to return at a later date when more replacement parts are available to have the recalled switch replaced.

    2008 Sport with automatic transmission. It's small, but roomy and gets great mileage. I bought it when gas was $4.00 per gallon, and have been pleased with the vehicle. The only con with this vehicle is the small radio antenna. Had to buy a longer antenna to get local stations.
