2015 Honda Fit EX Manual Reviews
THAT WHICH WE LIKE: It is not that much of a shock that the Honda Match is not the Zack Morris of C/D large. Why perform with 130 hp when more than five occasions which can be found in our longterm Tesla Design S P85D? Well, for starters, at significantly less than one seventh the price as-analyzed, the Honda has some core competencies that we had voluntarily pay more for, such as the slick shifter and important practicality. We could do without the buzzing motor at 4000 rpm while going 80 mph in sixth gear, but at least one-fit proponent differed using the chorus' discontent in highway sound. He maintains the motor sounds are simply a reminder of how difficult the dual-cam 1.5-litre has to perform in order to keep speed.
THAT WHICH WE DON'T LIKE: Excursion takers in the Suit are fast to learn the low-gas light is a a tad too overly conservative. While on its trek to Socal for a stick to our left-shore editors, it had been found the fuel light comes on when there are still a couple of gallons left in the tank. Two gallons is a suitable buffer in an automobile using a 1-5- or 20-gallon tank, just by means of the Fit's 10.6-gallon capacity, the remaining gas in the tank represents A - 20-ish-percentage reduction in range. We have however to pump more than ten gallons in a single-stop. It did not require a hand-writing specialist to see one editor's defeat in the log book when the tank took but seven gallons after exhibiting three miles of range staying. At least the fillups are cost-effective, and we have observed a 3 3-mpg average--scaling to more than 40 40-mpg on extended hauls.
WHAT WENT INCORRECT: Despite Honda's current reliability woes in F1, the Match is a bastion of dependability. Not one thing went awry in more than 20,000 miles. We've seen what feels like some warped front brake rotors, yet. It is not so terrible that we're racing away to the supplier, but we will request for it to be resolved at the next support, which should occur around the 30,000-mile mark, if we comprehend the on-board computer's percent estimate.
WHERE WE WENT: Besides the previously mentioned trip west, the Suit has been largely an area flavor. It went up north to Traverse-City and to Chicago, equally approximately four-hour drives, rather than too a number of other areas. It did make one journey to Nashville as well as the 600-mi-le visit to Virginia International Raceway for our yearly Lightning Lap, where we lapped it to observe how quickly an typical automobile might operate the 4.1-mi le Gran
