Bought a 2011 Fit Sport 6 months ago. 5-speed MT. Absolutely love the tranny. No problems whatsoever.

Honda switched from linkages to cables on the Civic manual transmission in 2001. I had a 97, and then a 2001 (still going with 202,000 miles).
The cable linkage very occasionally will stick a bit and the shifter will pop back into my hand, but this happens once every year or so--literally, about a dozen times in 11 years.
I have a 2009 Fit, and the shifter seems similar. I find the cable linkage actually lighter and more responsive in most situations, but it's definitely a different feel. I'm now well used to it and enjoy driving both sticks.
