The last visit to the shop the week before I sold it was to find the source of a periodic "clunking" in the front end when braking, two things were found: 1. The wrong lubricant was likely used on the brake pad slide area (mechanic noted it was dry); and 2. the lower control arm bushing (right side) may need replacing - the mechanic sprayed some deep creep on it. As a result of this two adjustments, the clunking disappeared, but since he did both things at once the actual solution was not isolated. Replace muffler

Electric would cut out briefly, especially if running the a/c. Found to be the alternator dropping voltage. This had been happening for a couple years at least. Update: There is a fuse at the battery terminal held in place by a couple of nuts. I discovered one of these to be missing and the other loose shortly after this repair. I secured it in place better than it had been. The car has not dropped its voltage since then, but there is no way to tell if it was the alternator or my small repair. I do strongly suspect it was my repair and I unnecessarily spent a couple hundred dollars, though.

After several days of heavy rain, I found a large quantity of water on the floor in the rear seat area, on both sides. Water was over 1" deep on both sides. Additionally, I found over 1" of water in the spare tire area. I shop vacuumed over 2 gallons of water out of the car overall. For the rear hatch area leak, I sealed the roof rails with RTV on both sides, as recommended online. For the rear floor leaks, I removed both rear door panels, and replaced the seal on the vapor barrier, which had failed, again following advice I found online for similar leaks with 2007 Honda Fits.

Check engine on. Use a code reader, the code was P2A00: Air-fuel ratio sensor. On the GD3 FIT it's the sensor on the exhaust manifold. Resetted the code, it came back the same day. Did reset a second time, the CEL came back on, every time P2A00. But this time call went out by itself. It is more than a month ago now and it had not returned. I wanted to test the resistance of the sensor, to see if it really gone bad, but it's not easy to get to it. I've heard that if the Valve lash are out of spec, this could cause a false A/f sensor CEL. My car has bad fuel economy for a couple of months now, so there's something going on.

The compressor failed, so my shop put in a salvaged one. My mechanic's opinion was that they were better than 3rd party refurbished. The dealer wanted $1080 for the job. One or more of the valves was bad; was probably driven too long by the previous owner with out of spec valve clearances. Could have fixed the valve for $150 less; but engine replacement should be better in the long run.

The transmission started making a failing halfshaft bearing noise. A used 82k mile transmission was under 400, so my mechanic and I figured it would be cheaper and more reliable to replace rather than repair, so we went that route. Replaced the clutch at the same time. I would have liked to get more than 196k miles on the original transmission, but I can't really complain.
