    Info

    This is my anti-build thread. This car will be unmolested for the next 7 years / 100k miles, get used to it now. The Fit EX-L is top of the line, only option I passed on was navigation. I will have many adventures in this car, buy many useful OEM accessories, and put many miles on it. I plan on keeping IMMACULATE records on every bit of maintenance, upgrades, etc...I have control over everything that happens to this car. Also, this is my first brand new car, I signed papers with 19 miles on it 9 of which I put on during the test drive. It was delivered to Tom Scott Honda on 6/12/14, went through PDI and detail, it was on the lot for 45 minutes when I showed up and started our lives together. At the time of purchase I was the FIRST and ONLY person in Idaho to own a 2015 Fit, pretty cool in my opinion.

    Nice car dude, as long as you like it that's all that matters. I however would have chosen a different color than silver.

    Who needs a clutch when I paddle shifters...that don't really shift anything, lol. At least Honda added bumps to make it feel shifty.

    This was the only one in Idaho at the time, I didn't have a lot of choices. Only color I didn't want was black, so I am still happy.

    I don't get that. "it shakes so it's less comfortable! Like a real car!" and you should have a man pedal with paddle shifters if that's really what you're into.

    I wouldn't either since it doesn't have a clutch... paddles with a slush donut don't really mean anything.

    :D

    But nice ride! Would look so much nicer with that wheel gap even all the way around, and maybe some super lightweight 17s/18s with grippy tires for better gas mileage. Because maintaining speed through corners = better economy.

    :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Also had some free time so I pulled it on the rack today to look at the underside...its very covered and I was not ready to remove anything just yet. Front to back.

    How to increase labor rates by 5%? add 15 minuets of work to most jobs by blocking tech access with paneling :X

    Most reputable shops don't raise rates based on the make/model...I have to live that sad truth on the daily.

    Working at a shop I see these on a lot of newer cars, especially those that are all about the MPGs. It may take a couple minutes to pop the clips and pull the panels...I just didn't want to deflower the underside yet, lol.

    The gas mileage this thing gets is amazing, but I have to say the CVT makes driving this thing a blast. Its a whole new way to enjoy an automatic.

    Longer wheelbase, less overall length than the last gen.

    YUP. It wouldn't be on there if it didn't do anything.
