#409 of 537 Caution: poor bak support
Nov 12, 2011 (4:07 pm)
I bought a 2011 Honda Fit, based on the glowing reviews from CR - the positives are easy access, good visibility.
After two days of driving I started developing severe back pain. I had to have several appointments with a chriopractor to resolve this.
If you are enamoured by the reviews, reconsider. The fuel mileage, cost, and acceleration are not that great either.
If you still want to buy it, drive it for at least 6-8 hrs, which is the time it takes for the seat comfort issue to crop up.
In fact, on the way to the dealer, I had to sit in the back seat as I simply could not sit in the front seat for more than a few minutes. Several others have also complained about the same issue. It looks like Honda has "gamed" the car to get a good Consuer Reports review.
At the end of the day a car is more than a sum of its parts - this one is not !! GLTA

had this same issue (without any fire)
fan only works on highest setting (4)
you mention a resistor, not fuse?

Yep, definitely the blower motor resistor and not a fuse. A blown fuse would simply cut the power (what fuses do).
Since we tend to drive the cars in our household to well over 200,000 miles, I've run into this issue twice in the 12 vehicles we've purchased since 1979

Absolutely, I have this same problem with my 2009 Fit. I have taken it in a couple of times and they always act like I'm crazy, saying, "I can't smell anything" and offering to spray some kind of air freshener. I am so frustrated. Did you find the cause?

Great information and I would like to know if you have the part number for the A/C Expansion Block. My Honda is scheduled to go to service on Monday 6/17 and I need as much information but the service. I drove from SC to DE and the AC stopped working. This had happened on previous trips. The car is schedule to go out of warrenty in Oct. 2012. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Can it carry your cargo?

Dimensions I'm looking for are length and wideh of the cargo area with the rear seats folded flat. The volume only comes out to 30 cu.ft. This does not make sense to me, as I have 43 cu.ft. in my Mazda 323 hatchback, which is 6 inches lower and 6 inches narrower than the fit - and has a much longer hood. Or are the Fit's wheel wells huge?
