"good fuel efficiency, fun, but then it catches fire!"1.5 starson by mgborkowski
Pros: We really enjoyed our Honda Fit, for over 2 years: the versatile interior, great sight lines, good fuel efficiency We didn't even worry too much when they issued a recall related to a potential fire hazard...
Cons: Less than 2 weeks after being serviced to remediate the fire hazard... the thing spontaneously caught fire while sitting parked! Since then Honda has been of no help at all!
Summary: I used to love Honda, until my 2007 Honda Fit spontaneously combusted while sitting parked in a garage on May 12, 2010. I'm still waiting for *someone* from Honda to step up & take ownership of this problem -- whether the Sloane Honda Dealer in Philadelphia we bought it from, the Shadyside Honda Service Center in Pittsburgh that had "fixed" the fire recall problem 10 days earlier, or from the Honda corporate office. This sure isn't the reliability or customer service that I expected in buying a NEW car from them not even 3 years ago. Since when does "3 year warranty" translate as "Talk to your insurance." Check out these crazy pics of the car after its melt-down: http://picasaweb.google.com/mgborkowski/HondaFitPhotos512Fire?feat=directlink
