It's up to the reputation of Honda. Perfect.
2012 4dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.5L I4

This is my second Honda Fit. Neither of them have required repairs.
2011 4dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.5L I4

When my 14 year old Subaru became a maintenance headache, I asked my mechanic what brand of car she would recommend for a replacement. She strongly recommended Honda or Toyota.

Jazz (Fit) is rated #6 in Europe in terms of reliability by a warranty company. Few problems reported on Truedelta. Consumer Reports rates reliability high. No long term test I have read has had any issues.

Honda like Toyota make super cars maybe not bulletproof but quality for sure! I have to admit I did think about looking at the Elantra and soul. GM lost me forever in the mid 80s with their diesel conversions absolute dogs....never again
2011 4dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.5L I4

Honda brand is known for reliability. This particular car has been in Europe as the Jazz for some time and it has excellent reliability statistics. Also- the sheer number of old Hondas I see on the road.

Not a single problem in the 32,000 miles we owned it, just oil, filter and tire changes.

Finally, the best part of owning a Honda Fit is the reliability. I'm working my way through grad school delivering newspapers. I put on about 120 miles a day on my Fit. After 3.5 years I've put on 105,000 miles on my car with only 1 repair needed (not regular maintenance). The only repair I've needed so far was for a 3rd gear sensor. Basically, it lets you know if your transmission is starting to go. Luckily, it was the sensor that went bad not the transmission (which runs as smooth as it did on mile 1) The cost to replace the sensor was $150. All other repairs were general maintenance (oil changes, tire replacement, transmission flush etc)

I've put 105,000 miles on my 2010 Honda Fit. It runs like new. I put on around 120 miles a day on my Fit and it has never left me stranded.

Replacement tire choices very limited and the stock (Dunlop) tires do not get very many miles before needing replacement, 23,000 miles in our case.
