2009 Honda Fit Problems
Fuel filler door may not open. Revised fuel fill push lifter is available from Honda to correct this issue.
The rear washer nozzle may be broken or missing, commonly caused by ice scraper damage. A revised rear washer nozzle is available.
The A/C fan speed control switch stopped working, had my local Honda shop repair it. The Resister pack that controls the fan speed burned out. Simple fix except that on my particular year/model Honda had a service bulletin that stated there was a problem with the AC Fan that caused this resister pack to fail thus requiring the fan AND resister pack be replaced together. I had this done and have had no problems since then.
I recently had the Loss motion springs replaced now my Fit sounds like a sewing machine, I know it's just a valve adjustment that's off. I wish I didn't have to perform the valve adjustment myself after the fact.

2009 Honda Fit Reviews
Great design, space & flexible seat options. I get 31-32 mpg. Biggest complaint is the 'firm & responsive' ride - you feel every little bump and the steering requires constant correction - no 'hands off' here. Very stable though .. a passing car cut back into my left rear fender, spun me across 4 lanes of freeway, and I was able to drive it back to the shoulder. The click of the directional signals needs to be adjustable and made louder. Little rubber cover on fuel lid push lifter fell off. Honda wants $30 for a 20 cent part.
Very fun daily driver vehicle! Excellent gas mileage!
Excellent handling and surprisingly roomy. I average from 32 - 36 mpg in mixed city/highway driving and upwards of 42 - 45 mpg in constant highway cruising at 60 - 65 mph. Maintenance costs are extremely reasonable. I have accumulated nearly 22,000 miles since I purchased this new. Parking is never a problem and the fit and finish is much better than you would expect of a car costing less than $17,500. Highly recommended! I would definitely get another one.
never stalled during the winter. very reliable!
In very few words .. this is appropriate for those who wants to ride well
