2009 2dr Hatch 332-horsepower 3.7L V6
6-speed manual RWD
My last two Nissans have each gone over 150,000 miles. Both were easy keepers, reliable, and inexpensive to service. I expect the same from this one. Servicing costs on the Cayman are a nightmare by comparison, despite long recommended service interval
2008 2dr Hatch 306-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Very reliable, have not had long enough to evaluate durability.
2007 2dr Convertible 306-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
I drove this car in 15 degree weather, It cranked up the same as 80-90 degree days
2006 2dr Convertible 300-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual RWD
So far no problems.
2005 2dr Hatch 287-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
nissans have always been know to be well built and reliable.
2004 2dr Hatch 287-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
never had to do any major repairs on my Z
2004 2dr Hatch 287-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Relatively cheap to maintan for a sportscar. Nissan engines can run pretty high in mileage and be just fine.
2004 2dr Hatch 287-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual RWD
Strong, durable engine and drivetrain. Have only had standard maintenance - no repairs. This includes taking the car to the track and autocross on occasion.
2004 2dr Hatch 287-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual RWD
I bought mine with about 160,000 miles on it kind of as a toy as I didn't anticipate having a 400 mile a week commute. Through all that though it has been dead reliable. Here are the only issues I've had with it: - Clutch needed to be bled as pedal would sink to floor in hot weather (still operable though) - Replaced/upgraded brakes - Alignment was way out of whack and feathering front tires (common problem) - Driver's side window motor failed the day I bought it (fixed obviously, common problem, no issues since with OEM Nissan replacement) - Trunk latch and dampers were shot and needed to be replaced It starts up and runs like clockwork. I could see this car going another 100K miles in the hands of the right owner.
2003 2dr Hatch 287-horsepower 3.5L V6

Its engineered to last and the parts are reasonable, not cheap, but reasonable

It's up to the reputation of Honda. Perfect.

This is my second Honda Fit. Neither of them have required repairs.

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 117-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
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.

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.
2010 4dr Hatch 117-horsepower 1.5L I4

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.

Terrific ratings here on TrueDelta.

The car, although brand new, is solidly built. The Honda reputation is that the car will practically outlive me. I expect it to be reliable for a very long time.

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.
