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 full 2009 Nissan 350Z review

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. full 2004 Nissan 350Z review

TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the Honda Fit

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

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 full 2011 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

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. full 2010 Honda Fit review
