2013 Honda Fit ProblemsAC fan speed stopped working
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.
The Honda Fit is known for sudden, poor drivability issues, as soon as 50,000 miles, such as:
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.
2013 Honda Fit QuestionsHow often should I replace the brake fluid? (1 answer)

2013 Honda Fit RecallsDriver's Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures And Sprays Metal Fragments
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.
On manual transmission vehicles, the passenger front drive shaft may break while driving, resulting in loss of vehicle power. Dealers will inspect the suspect drive shaft and replace it as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
The Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system helps to keep the vehicle from skidding out of control when the driver attempts to round a corner faster than conditions will allow. "Yaw" is the rate at which the vehicle is changing direction (left or right) from its forward motion. These Honda Fit vehicles are being recalled because the ESC module may allow an excessive yaw rate under certain conditions, increasing the chances the vehicle will spin. Dealers will update the ESC module software to correct this concern.
