Honda Owners' Reviews
2007 Honda Fit... approaching 213,000 miles. No major problems with the car except for one item while it was still under warranty. I don't even remember what that was. I think it was something with the computer... I love my Fit. Hoping to get 300K on it.... Yea, the exterior paint is fading from the sun...but it's a 6 year old car with a lot of miles on it. It won't look new forever. As long as it runs, that's what counts for me. I average 33-43 mpg with it.
This car should've come in yellow because it is the ultimate lemon. It has 150,000 miles and burns a quart of oil every 10 days, and service tells us this is "normal". Every 7,000 miles the dashboard is like an unexplained ligth show requiring to pay the fees for reset, and an explanation that they don't understand why this happens. Ultimately will never buy another honda product....
my 2012 Honda accord that had no problems on its last diagnostic test three months ago and now needed a rear wheel alignment with this service appointment. I am the only driver and had no unusual incident to caused an extraordinary condition
Now 36,000 miles on my 2004 Element. I've left its wheels covered while I travel by RV during the Summer. But after one month of unprotected storage with heavy summer rainfall, my rear passenger side calipers have frozen, requiring a complete brake overhaul costing $600. One other quirk, the spare tire was found to be surrounded with water--probably due to simple condensation over a two year period.
I bought this car used and wished I would have did more research and if you have one I suggest you get rid of it. There's a loud noise at times, have did some research and some people say its a noise cancellation problem inside the speakers. The biggest problem I'm having is the IMA battery. The engine light and the IMA came on at the same time took it to the dealership they said I needed the regular battery so I spent $125 to replace, but the two lights still on so they recommend it was the IMA electric battery. I searched around and found a used one from a salvage yard for $975. 5 Months later the lights come back on and my mileage went from 25 in city to about 19.7. So I take it back to dealership which is 135 just for diagnostic they recommended it needed software update that would cost me another 150, but not guaranteed that's the problem it still could be the IMA. Which would cost about 3500 at the dealership. If I can fix this problem and get the lights off I'm getting rid of this car. Honda put out a vehicle that not even their techs no how to work on or no anything about. They also neglected to inform the consumers about the high cost to replace these batteries. Stick with a regular car never going with another hybrid.
