Initial impressions of the Fit:

The car is nimble and fun to drive

Can tight U-turns in a flash

2nd row Seats™ fold flat ways than a spider has creating a versatile cargo

Good low-end torque 0 35 gives the Fit a snappy off-the-line

5-speed automatic downshifts too and robs fuel economy

Tall 5th gear the engine was along at 2400 rpm while 65 on the freeway

Includes lots of amenities for only $16k

week we received the Honda Fit for I m happy the Fit finally arrived on shores after I spotted the Fit traveling in Hong Kong in 2005. Attractive aero versatile folding seats can accommodate many different of cargo, and very desirable as gas approach $5/gallon.

One person on my team borrowed the Fit for a few since it has been on his wish-list for now. I get the car back and a report he was barely able to get 22 mpg.

I swear his feet must the proportions of a cinder block he gets into a test

22 miles per gallon is way too low for a car with EPA of 27 city/33 hwy with the 5-speed The Honda Fit is outfitted with a 109 hp, 1.5 16-valve SOHC VTEC® is very aerodynamic, and only 2,551 lbs. I take the back and drove the Fit for two days, log 250 miles, and use every gas-saving in my little book of driving Voila!

I was able to squeeze almost 39 mpg out of Red Riding Hood.

I suggested somebody s foot should go on a no-carb, barf till you diet.

So how did I get 39 mpg where the other driver got 22? The way to improve the fuel economy of cars is to keep the engine as low as possible, especially when The Honda Fit downshifts very if you try to accelerate too hard. By accelerating and evenly, most times I was to keep the RPMs well 3,200 and avoid downshifting the automatic transmission.

Also, the Fit has a fifth gear and that improve fuel economy running at steady highway The Fit hums along at 2,400 RPM at 65 By comparison, my 02 Acura RSX is revving at RPM and gets 31 mpg on the highway.
