2008 Honda Fit Q&A
2008 Honda Fit Question: where can I buy a battery for honda fit 2008 base model?
Maybe try a Interstate battery as they are high quality and powerful - Valleyautotech
Wow, first thing... what's causing your battery to drain so fast? Alternator going bad? Crappy stereo/amp install? Take it to the dealer, it should still have some warranty left on it. If not, buy an Optima Red or Yellow top battery. - kakrohn
I bought mine at Advance autoparts. Salesman had never heard of the size before and was shocked story had one in stock. - Markinct
I switched to a bigger Interstate brand battery, since I had read from I think the Fit Freak forum that such a small OEM battery can die pretty quickly if you leave the radio, or headlights on for even a short period of time. It actually happened to me once when I left my headlights on for a not very long time. Once I noticed my car wouldn't start, I realized my headlights were on, so I immediately turn headlights and radio off. Then this last winter our temp got down to below 0 degrees, and my small battery would not start my engine, so I replaced it with a bigger more powerful Interstate battery to stop that problem (see the link below how to fit a bigger battery). It started right up. Here is a link below to fitfreak.net forum, where I did exactly as this person did, adding a bigger Interstate battery with way more powerful cold cranking amps. http://www.fitfreak.net/forums/fit-engine-modifications-motor-swaps-ecu-tuning/74930-another-day-another-51r-battery-swap.html - locotaco
