Miscellaneous -- Verified

The rear washer nozzle may be broken or missing, commonly caused by ice scraper damage. A revised rear washer nozzle is available.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- madcracker and 4 others

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.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The powertrain control module (PCM) may misinterpret fuel tank pressure data causing the Check Engine Light to illuminate. A PCM software update is available to correct this concern.

Honda Fit Recalls (Recent)

Body, Interior & Misc., December 12, 2007

RepairPal Expert Overview:

In areas were road salt is used, drivers may track the salt water solution into the vehicle. This can damage the airbag wiring under the front carpet, resulting in illumination of the airbag warning light and failure of the occupant detection system (ODS) and the occupant position detection system (OPDS). As a result, in the event of a crash, the passenger side and front airbags may be deployed incorrectly, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will inspect and replace the wire harness as required to correct this concern. The Honda recall number is Q66.

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.

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

Generly speaking Fit is OK, enough room, diving feeling is good!

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 MPG, 75 = 34 MPG. On most back roads where you can drive 50+ I get over 40 MPG. Both cars have been dead reliable just replacing wiper blades, washer fluid, air & cabin filters and oil changes every 12K per the maintenance minder system. What is their not to like? My 11' now has 36K in just over 1 year! Now, if we put that kind of miles on our 05' Pilot, we could pay for the gas and the monthly 11' payment for what we would have paid just for gas for the Pilot!

Great design, space & flexible seat options. I get 31-32 mpg. Biggest complaint is the 'firm & responsive' ride - you feel every little bump and the steering requires constant correction - no 'hands off' here. Very stable though .. a passing car cut back into my left rear fender, spun me across 4 lanes of freeway, and I was able to drive it back to the shoulder. The click of the directional signals needs to be adjustable and made louder. Little rubber cover on fuel lid push lifter fell off. Honda wants $30 for a 20 cent part.
