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.
Honda Fit Questions
Just happened yesterday. took to dealer. price was 1653.47 for the converter is this ok?
runs very bad after the acceleration, Engine light is flashing and trans stays in low gear until getting to high RPM. The last time this happened the traction control light came on.
There is a popping sound every time the fan cuts on.I had the spark plugs and oil changed yesterday. There was a popping sound before and it got worse after. Any idea what it is?
Honda Fit Recalls
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.
These Honda Fit models are being recalled a second time to correct a concern of water intrusion into the driver's power window switch that was not completely addressed by the first recall. Water entry into the switch can cause switch failure and possibly a fire. Dealers will inspect the switch, if damage is found the switch will be replaced. If no damage is found the owner will be asked to return at a later date when more replacement parts are available to have the recalled switch replaced.
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.
Honda Fit Reviews
Had an 08' Fit until it was totaled. Loved that car. But this is an even better car. Was not sure I would have liked it as much as the 08', but after time it is just a more substantial car. More room in every direction, far better milage, better ride, fit and finish etc... With the 08', I had a hard time achieving 35 MPG. The 11' easily gets that around town. Drive 55 = 46 MPG, 65 = 39 M...
I was very impressed with my Fit until the head on crash test results were aired on TV. I have had no problems except the battery would not hold a charge very long. It is true that I don't drive it for weeks at a time. I took it to the local dealer and it turned out to be a defective battery. They replaced it at no charge. I have had four passengers inside with no problems picking up speed....
My fit is terrible. the paint is fading,have engine miss problems,bad coil after 38000 miles,bad engine miss right now it will not start possible fuel pump? I am trading it as soon as possible, has 55000 mile and nothing but problems. battery bad after 1 year
