A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2010 Honda Fit
2010 Honda Fit Problems
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.
One or both front door armrests may crack. Our technicians tell us a revised door panel is available to correct this issue.
Fuel filler door may not open. Revised fuel fill push lifter is available from Honda to correct this issue.
2010 Honda Fit Questions
I hit a median a little over a year ago and had major repairs ($6,000) done to the car. Like transmission replacement. A different mechanic just told me the rack and pinion steering is cracked and will need to be replaced. Could this be a problem with the repair work or wear in tear in a year'...
Last few weeks, cannot always lock the car remotely. Vehicle has over 65k miles on it. Is the issue with the key or with the car?
Tank is not leaking. It's coming out the pump... I think. I am having much trouble finding a replacement or would rather get a repair kit.
2010 Honda Fit Recalls
The driver's frontal air bag inflator may be susceptible to moisture intrusion, which over time could cause the inflator to rupture. If this happens, it would spray metal fragments upon deployment. Dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.
One or more of the four spring assemblies on the engine's variable valve timing system may fail. This can cause rough idling and stalling, which can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the affected spring assemblies. The recall is scheduled to begin March 7, 2011. The Honda recall number is R66.
