#17 of 53 recall on 2007 honda fits
Jan 15, 2008 (6:19 pm)
I brought a honda fit 7 months ago, I noticed everytime I drive over a crack, bump or stop short I notice a "boinggg" sound, like a spring is about to pop loose, it's been doing this since I brought the car, I thought it was because it was new, but then I received a recall notice about 2007 honda fits, it says in the salt-belt states, the moisture from a drivers wet shoes may penetrate under-carpet wire harness and cause the passenger's side and front airbags to malfunction, oh oh, this don't sound good, would that be the "boingg"sound? anyone have the same problem?

I have the same thing on my Fit I think it is the anti-lock braking engaging
#19 of 53 rock stuck in brakes?
Jan 23, 2008 (7:33 am)
Twice since I have had my 08 fit I have had rocks get stuck between the caliper and the rotor and when I drive it makes this awful screeching sound. The dealer had to take it out once and this time I think it popped out. Why does this happen??? No other car I have had has done this.

I have noticed when changing wheels that the stock sport wheels are very tight against the front brake caliper. I thought that there could be a possibility of interference from a pebble getting in between the wheel and the caliper. I don't think it would stay there for long though.

Will it cause any damage if it does stay there for too long?

i have 3000+ and i had this problem twice also...
i am bringing my car in next for weird noise when transmission shifts and will ask about this. I did have this problem with my 2002 honda civic..had to bring it in 3 or 4 times. Suddenly it stopped..i think they fixed it but never told me what was wrong. once it started by itself...and i did not have an automatic starter. that was very interesting. of course, no one believed me...
you need to videotape your starts...or bring a witness to " testify" at the Honda service center...that is what i do..
#24 of 53 2008 Honda fit with idle surge?
Feb 01, 2008 (6:06 pm)
I bought my new 2008 Honda Fit Sport manual transmission 10 days ago but today I noticed when my car is in idle-clutch in and brake cause I am waiting to go I hear and increase in idle, almost like a fan noise, or a "Vroom" noise that I have not heard before. Then it stops and goes quiet again but once it started it would do this every time in idle- today only. I had this sound with my old manual transmission - car on its last legs. But I was so happy not to hear it till today. I know nothng about car engines, and maybe this is a cooling thing or something and normal for manual transmissions?????????? I hope!! Should I bring it back to the dealer? Is this normal? Let me know. Thanks. Actually when I think about it , the "vroom" noise happened when I put it in neuteal with brake on with no clutch. And when the "Vroom" noise came on for a minute the front headlights dimmed a little. Any Help??? Thanks

I plan on buying a Fit this year and wanted to know from people who own them if the engine in the current model is a good one and if so what if any is the difference between this one and the engine that will be in the new redesigned model or are they the same?
#26 of 53 Problem with Honda Fit Sport and road imperfections
Feb 16, 2008 (7:00 am)
I have an 07 Fit Sport with Potenza 205/R45/16 tires with the optional sport rims. I notice that the car is very senstive to any imperfections on the road. A few days ago, while drive in 1-9 in NJ I drove over a defective joint in the road. There was a gap. The car bottomed out onto the rims, causing a very large jolt. Enough to cause the rear view mirror to drop down. This impact resulted in ruining the 2 front times and scraping on of the rims.
I see this as a serious problem. Has anyone else noticed this problem?
