TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Honda Fit

2015 Honda Fit Reliability And Durability: Pros
YearComment
2015 I'm going to go out on a limb (if only a few feet) and predict that the new Honda Fit will remain among the most reliable cars you can buy. Why the lack of certainty? Redesigns can create problems where there were none before. Also, the third-generation Fit is hencho en Mexico. Except for the transmission--that's shipped across the Pacific from Indonesia. I don't ascribe much importance to where a car is manufactured in itself. Engineering and quality control processes--for components at least as much as final assembly--matter much more than the location of the assembly plant. But the Mexican plant is new with a green labor force, so initial cars might have been glitchy. On the tested car, the doors weren't as precisely aligned as in the typical Honda. Now that they have a year under their belts they've likely gotten their act together. Through the end of 2014 the new Fit scored pretty well in our car reliability survey. As has the also made-in-Mexico Versa Note, but I have less confidence in the Nissan's score owing to much smaller sample sizes and a less laudable previous generation. In both cases it's far too early to predict long-term reliability, but the Honda has the better track record. full 2015 Honda Fit review

The other reason was sheer reliability. Lots of little things went wrong with the car, and a spotty dealer network meant each one took 3-5 hours out of my day. The shifter knob came off in my hand while driving. The steering shaft developed a "clunk" and needed fixing. Various bits of plastic trim came off. The seat got a little wobbly. All of this in the first nine months! full 2013 Honda Fit review

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Honda Fit

2015 Honda Fit Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2015 Hondas have been lagging the leaders in fuel economy. But with new "Earth Dreams" engines and CVT transmissions (pardon the redundancy), they've closed the gap. When fitted with the CVT (continuously variable transmission), the Fit LX rates 33 mpg city, 41 mpg highway in the EPA's tests. The city rating is especially impressive, and both figures are much better than the 2013 Fit's 28/35 (with a five-speed conventional automatic) and a little better than the Nissan Versa Note's 31/40 (with a CVT). You won't find a higher EPA city figure in any other non-diesel, non-hybrid car you'd want to drive. The highway figure, on the other hand, is matched or slightly exceeded by a few somewhat larger cars. Small yet tall hatchbacks are aerodynamically challenged. With a bit more poundage and stickier tires, the Fit EX and EX-L don't test quite as well, with scores of 32/38. But I doubt their real-world fuel economy would differ significantly from the LX's. The days when manual transmissions ruled the EPA charts are history. With a six-speed manual, the Honda Fit rates 29/37. While this is better than the 2013 5-speed manual's 27/33, the much zippier Ford Fiesta ST isn't far behind with 26/35. For those who like to row their own, another Fiesta variant, the SE EcoBoost with a three-cylinder turbocharged engine, is the way to go: 31/43. In my real-world suburban driving the trip computers of the Fit, Versa Note, and Fiesta SE EB all regularly reported averages over 40 and as high as the low 50s (with infrequent stops and a feather-light foot). full 2015 Honda Fit review
