Known Problems

Fuel filler door may not open. Revised fuel fill push lifter is available from Honda to correct this issue.

 

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.

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

    A rattle noise may develop from under the drivers side of the dash board. Our technicians tell us this is commonly caused by an ill filling drivers side dash undercover. A revised undercover is available to correct this concern.
