We're a "Fit family"

The key is to have a good mechanic check it out thoroughly. My family owns 6 Fits, gen 1 and gen 2 (gen 1 is 2007-08; gen 2 is 2009-13; gen 3 is 2015 to current). We did have a problem with the '07...

Keep in mind that LEDs are polarity sensitive so if they're installed with reverse polarity, they won't work (unless they have a module that will allow you to connect it either way and it will direct...

If you know someone who has a code reader, have him check what DTC is stored. The only problem I came across on automatic Fits thus far is a trans pressure switch on the top rear side of the trans,...

I'm not privileged to own a 2018 or 2019 Fit, so not aware of what Honda's specs are for the motor oil. If they specify 0W16, then fine, but if they're still at the 0w20 spec, I wouldn't use 0w16...

Funny that my 2010 and 2012 Sport models don't look much different than your photo in body to ground clearance. Both my Fits are stock height and they're low enough as is (they scrape my driveway...

That's really strange. When you run your car, have you looked under the hood with the a/c on? You can do this in your driveway or something; when it's "hot" at a stop, just pull over and open the...

The 07-08 Fits have this issue due to a problem with the original design ignition coil. Since yours does not have a code stored, it's probably just starting to fail. I had this exact issue with my 07...
