Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"About 15 to 20 more horsepower would have been nice. With the later redesign of the Fit I can't see why Honda id not do this and switch to a six speed automati in 2014.. Handling is amazing."

D T., WI (2010 Honda Fit)

"Steering very responsive; peppy for such a tiny engine; the 5-speed gearing is well suited to the small engine, and the paddle shifters make it easy to handle the hills; good air conditioner for such a small engine too. Blind spot on right side requires extra care in changing lanes in California traffic."

Anonymous, UT (2010 Honda Fit)

"Could use a bit more horse power to get out onto highways. Back seats fold down, nice for groceries etc. Dont have to lift over rear lip and stuff stored in rear section."

BARBARA S., NJ (2010 Honda Fit)

"Its hard to see the front corner of the vehicle so I sometimes hit curbs with the front wheels"

Anonymous, MO (2010 Honda Fit)

"I like everything about how it drives except that the steering seems rather stiff."

ROBERT H., NC (2010 Honda Fit)

"I feel the ride is a little rough in terms of feeling the uneven pavement. Also, the tires are too small to give good traction in the snow."

WILLIAM M., CO (2010 Honda Fit)

"The car ,as it has aged, does not have the acceleration that it used to have. It also seems to have much more road noise than it used to."

CHRISTINA C., WA (2010 Honda Fit)

"Had a manual transmissio in my previous Honda CRX. In comparision, Fit automatic seems sluggish re acceleration."

IRIS L., CA (2010 Honda Fit)

"I like the size and it's fun to drive"

RICHARD S., CT (2010 Honda Fit)

"Gearing is such that it's a pleasure at city speeds. It's a slug on freeway on ramps."

C L., CA (2010 Honda Fit)

"It has stiff steering and the handling is sort of abrupt, choppy not smooth. But the car is totally worth it."

MELISSA B., OR (2010 Honda Fit)

"Pleasure to drive. Excellent acceleration in the city. Superb handling, very good breaks. Engine is a little bit noisy but this sound is nice.The best car for city driving. The rear seats are fantastic (cargo). AC broke after four years."

LILLY B., NY (2010 Honda Fit)

"Incredibly nimble in corners. Acceleration is a little weak, even with manual transmission."

RICHARD D., ON (2010 Honda Fit)

"Acceleration is excellent (the car has a standard transmission) and it handles very well."

BARRY H., NJ (2010 Honda Fit)

"Acceleration is poor and handling on windy mountain roads is tenuous."

WILLIAM J., CA (2010 Honda Fit)

"It handles well, but doesn't have great acceleration. However, I don't expect this in this kind of car."

Anonymous, MA (2010 Honda Fit)

"It's an economy car but that affects acceleration. It's not the fastest car getting up to freeway speed."

Anonymous, CA (2010 Honda Fit)

"The acceleration leaves something to be desired. Driving a stick I can make up for it, but it's not fantastic. Certainly better than some small vehicles I've driven for sure, just could use a little more."

JOSH J., MN (2010 Honda Fit)

"This Fit handles nicely. The biggest drawback is acceleration and staying power on steep hills. First, from zero to any speed, the Fit is slow/sluggish to reach the first gear change, which ends up being a nuisance in constant stop-and-go urban driving. Second, when driving up long, steep hills, the Fit does not have to power to maintain speed. These are the only times when I have had to drop down to much lower gears in order to make it up the hill without burning up the engine. Even tr"

"Handles well and is fun to drive. Acceleration is modest but acceptable."

Anonymous, IL (2010 Honda Fit)

"Smooth shifting, and great handling."

Anonymous, HI (2010 Honda Fit)

"Although heavier and only 10 horsepower more than my previous 1992 Honda Civic, it accelerates quicker and seems to handle as well. Like the civic, road noise could be improved."

Anonymous, MD (2010 Honda Fit)

"The flip-up "magic" seat bottoms in the back are amazing. The extra cargo space is huge and especially useful to minimize lifting. My wife uses this space all the time to load a wheelchair."

JOHN J., CA (2010 Honda Fit)

"Three years in, I underwent 3 weeks of pelvic radiation "therapy" and had to drive 20-30 minutes to the treatment center. By the last week of this, I could barely sit in the car, and even though I've mostly recovered from treatment, the driver's seat has been uncomfortable ever since. It's lower than I need it to be, even though it's higher than my previous car. Additionally, I'm noticing that the car feels like it might flip or not stop when I have to brake quickly--highway driving in this ar"

"Large black dash board makes it hard to cool car adequately when outside air is in the 70s. AC works best when outside air temps are in 80's or higher. Also, there is a bit more road noise than ideal."

KAREN G., OH (2010 Honda Fit)

"Both look great when cleaned, get super gas mileage on a long trip (44 mpg) and great mpg in town (33). A/C comes on quickly and is easy to merge into traffic when trying to enter interstate from an on ramp."

PATRICIA C., VA (2010 Honda Fit)

"The front leg room is uncomfortable and really boxy- which makes it hard to put your feet some place other than flat on the floor (this is an issue for a 6'2" guy who can't stretch his legs out). The back seats though have nice leg space because of the magic seats (nothing underneath the seats)."

JOSH J., MN (2010 Honda Fit)

"Due to small engine and primar driver desire for most MPG AC must be tired of during steep climes."
