#266 of 537 conduite dans la neige et siège du condecteur
Jul 12, 2009 (9:30 am)
salut!, je suis en train de décider si acheter un honda fit sport ou lx 2007, mais je veux savoir s'il y a quelqu'un qui peux me confirmer quelque chose que j'ai écouté par rapport à que l'honda fit sport a des problèmes pour être conduit à cause de son robe sport trop prés du sol quand il y a de la neige.
même je ne suis pas certain, mais est ce que me semble-t-il ou ce vrai que le gap entre la roue et la carrosserie d'arrière dans la version 2007 est plus petite que dans la version 2009? si ce le cas est-ce que quelqu'un peut me recommander si cela cause de problèmes pour la neige?
dernièrement, quel version d'honda fit amène la possibilité de lever-baisser le siège du conducteur? (ma femme mesure 1,55 mt et on a peur qu'elle ne puisse pas s'accomoder)
merci à tous!

#269 of 537 Quick Shifter worth while?
Jul 22, 2009 (4:34 am)
Hs anyone gotten the Quick shifter option with their
I'm familiar with a short shifter on a BMW.
If the Fit has a truly short shifter it will improve
the shifting dramatically.
Anyone have any comments?

How do you think this might work for me on an 8 hour drive? I have a KIA Optima which I find reasonably comfortable.How do you folks think it would compare with the Optima?
#271 of 537 How far back does the rear seat recline?
Aug 13, 2009 (4:11 pm)
I just bought my 2009 Fit Sport, but haven't gotten it home yet. Can any one tell me how far back the rear seats will recline? Enough for a teenager to comfortably nap during a long car ride ???

I left one of our dogs in my 2009 Fit and she decided to pass the time by chewing through both of my rear three-point seatbelts (the side belts; the center belt was retracted).
Does anyone have advice on replacing the seatbelts?
Are they unique to the 2009 Fit, or could I salvage them from another year (or even a Civic)?
Any chance I could replace them myself, or will it require special labor?
Thanks for any help! And if anyone is looking for a small, sweet German shepherd I know one that needs a home... (just kidding).

I would never trust seatbelts from a salvage vehicle. It may not even be legal to sell them from a vehicle that has been wrecked. Plus, it would be pretty ridiculous to try to save a few dollars on such a critical safety system in an essentially new vehicle.
#274 of 537 Doesn't Fit Us
Nov 06, 2009 (5:12 pm)
My wife and I had to dump our 2009 Honda Fit after 5,000 miles as it was so uncomfortable it sent us both into physical therapy. We realize that no car fits everyone, but the Honda USA customer service rep was a complete dolt. He couldn't tell us what seats we could switch ours for, whether or not others had the same problem (yes, many!), whether or not we could get the seats repadded, etc. We weren't asking Honda to pay for a damn thing, but they couldn't have been more disinterested in our problem. Caveat emptor!
Our mistake for not taking the car on a longer test drive. Don't even *dream* of buying this car unless you drive it for at least an hour & good luck to you if you have to contact Hinda USA. They lost us for life as customers. Now sitting in our garage: a Toyota. We were idiots for switching in the first place--ten years previous of Toyota ownership and never a problem greater than a flat tire.
Too many people have been seduced by the Fit's cool exterior design. Again, drive this thing a lot before you think of buying it. I've been tracking complaints, and people as tall as 6'4" and as short as 5' have found the Fit like sitting in a plastic conference chair on a marble floor. (We are 5"6" and 5'5'' so this 'small car' doesn't necessarily fit short people.)

Sorry but I couldn't disagree with you more. I have 10,000 miles on my 2009 FIT and have taken it on long trips as well. The seats are by no means plush but are more than adequate for me and my passengers. The Honda FIT is a very economical and versatile vehicle. Sorry you did not have a better experience.
