    I remember when they came to the states (mid-00s), lots of people were modding them and swapping K20a2s or K24 hybrids in them.
    At this point there aren't a lot of cheap compacts left so I guess it's becoming a thing again?

    they handle really well for what they are, and don't seem to have a lot of unnecessary features. also huge aftermarket. i think there's even a racing class that's just honda fits and mazda2s.

    Well, it's cheap and most of the people selling them aren't applying the ricer honda tax on them. So that's a plus. Parts are plentiful for aftermarket modifications as there are multiple racing specs and groups that favor the Fit.

    It's lightweight as frick, it's reliable, good on gas, comfortable (for a compact), and unassuming overall. Kinda just a solid little shitbox to play around with. Can't go wrong with it, I want one

        Yes, they are a rickety shitbox but you get what you pay for them lol. I daily one and it's not the best car in the universe, it's ultimately an appliance budget compact that you can have fun with. stop seething

        This guy is trying to keep the market down so he can afford one. KEK

        My GE Honda Fit is the best, THE BEST car I have ever owned. It's flying under everyone's radar.

        I mainly bought it because I wanted a very small, parkable car, with good fuel economy, good visibility, somewhat decent handling, & Japanese reliability. I got exactly those things except the handling is extremely good. I drive this car much much more like an butthole than I do in my 135i (which I have done more than """surface level""" work on) and I'm thinking of auto crossing it, because it's that good.

        I've used this car to haul tons of stuff. I've fit a stove in the fricking thing. Remove the front seat, you can fit a pantry or tv stand (which I did).
        The car is at 160k and I'm pretty sure it's on the original plugs & coils, and it still runs like a top. Yes it's slow, but the power delivery & 5-speed auto do a pretty good job at making it feel sporty. I drive this at 90mph all day long, weaving through slow traffic who all use the lanes improperly.

        I installed a remote starter, lifted it, put winter tires on it, and it eats the winter roads here in the Midwest.
        Sound system is better than my fricking "luxury" german car, and the paddle shifters work better than every paddle shift car I've been in so far.

        Once this car rusts out, I'm buying another one. I hate the new one, and I hate all other shitboxes, except maybe a 2nd gen CR-V with the k-motor, 5-speed, & awd.

        People sleep on these Fits, and that's good for trying to find one that hasn't been messed with, or being charged the racer boy tax like with an Si.

    is an ok shitbox. but needs more maintenance than a old civic. the shocks (front/back) will last you about 35k miles and you also need to change both filters and oil on the cvt transmission every 30k miles. i used mine for driving to work and taking the dogs to the vet. never had the impression of this shitbox being an enthusiast car.

    I love seeing these cool little things on the road and I'm pissed that they stopped production in North America.
    If I'm seeing them semi-frequently in Texas, right now, that tells me that they sold well and any excuse to pull them was utter horseshit.

    I had a 2nd gen (GE) Honda fit.

    I did the typical coilovers, intake, exhaust, wheels, and tires mods. Made it a blast to drive.

    It wasn't fast, but you could ring its neck every day and not worry about getting a speeding ticket or breaking anything.

    Handled really well on backroads and the one track day that I took it to. A lot of fun, and cheap to own. I miss that car..... might get another one someday...

    Some people got together and decided that a globohomosexual subcompact car with a Honda badge, McQueersons and a torsion beam rear was an enthusiast car. It's no different than an Aveo, Versa, Fiesta, Rio, Yaris, Mazda2.

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      And people enjoy all of those cars (except the aveo and the versa)
      They're the only newer lightweight cars on the market. Suspension isn't quite as much of a concern when you weigh 2200lbs. Thats what makes them fun. Such little force to throw them around and its easy to push them to the limit. 250hp in 3500lbs just isn't the same as 120hp in 2200lbs. Thats why even though its rwd, a crown vic is just gonna be a leisurely and lackluster experience at a track day while a fit is gonna feel fun even if you aren't really fast

    "Enthusiast" is as useless of a term as "Sport/sporty". People were modding Fits before they started selling them here in the US.

    $9400 in 2021 with 68ish kms. So. Almost 40,000 miles?
    1300 and the 5 speed, so yeah it’s slow, but it can get out of its own way. Cruises happily at 75mph.
    With the little motor, you have to keep the revs up. The motor isn’t loud but there is a lot of road noise. It doesn’t have the typical shitbox squeaks and rattles.
    It ticked over 100,000km a couple months ago.
    Plugs are a bit annoying to get to. It’s due a valve clearance adjustment which is hurting the economy. Factory stereo is a bit shit.

    For a generic Japanese economy car, it does everything you want it to do. It is easy to work on. Has cruise control for some reason. Controls are all feather light.
