I have enjoyed my Honda Fit ever since I made my purchase. At first, I was skeptical about the car and read the online reviews. However, after my first test drive I was in love. The handling is great, the features are amazing and the price is crazy. I didn't honestly expect to get such great value for a 20,000 car. It honestly felt like a luxury vehicle from the inside because of the extra features. Honda fits are the car for you if you want a little bit of compact power and fun.
Story
When I first bought it, I was used to driving cars with more power. Usually I could feel the power when going over 65 on the freeway down to LA. However, with the Honda fit, it was a bit slower of course but the feel was a lot lighter. So while not paying much attention and going down hill on the I5, I managed to accidentally hit 100 and It didn't even feel like it.
Pros
The car has outstanding handling that I could only find in a tight compact vehicle. On top of the great handling, I was also very pleased with the space capacity of the car. For a tiny vehicle it can sure hold a ton of stuff and people too! Also, the MPG is crazy. My brother averages 50 MPG on his Toyota Prius C which is amazing. As for me, on the Honda fit I average 45 MPG. ECO mode all day every day.
Cons
Now, I didn't have any issues with the car. It felt really at home but I am a short fellow at 5.6 feet. So when I had to pick up a friend who was over 6 feet, well he complained about the lack of head room and feet room. Therefore, I wouldn't recommend this for tall people.

I thoroughly enjoy the Honda Fit. It is compact but still has space for a lot of stuff and the rear seats fold down almost completely flat. I purchased an already assembled gun cabinet and it was able to barely fit in this car. This hatchback has more legroom than my brother's Scion sedan. The CVT in this car is decent and while it does not offer exhilarating rides, it does save a lot of gas. In addition, just because it is a front wheel drive CVT gas saver does not mean it has to be slow. It has very decent acceleration and fun can still be had when you push it to the limit.
Story
To show how you can have fun in this car, I take this car up Chantry, which is a mountain road, all the time. I do not just do it for the sightseeing either. This car is genuinely fun to drive, although you still get the understeer from it being a front wheel drive car.
Pros
This car really shines in its cargo space. Honda really did put big space in a small package. You can fit almost anything in it. With its flat folding seats in a hatchback design, it becomes a light duty truck. This car gets around 32-35 MPG overall, which is really good. In addition, the power in this vehicle is far from small. Throw it in low gear and you can have some fun.
Cons
The exterior looks could use a little upgrade as it is far from the best looking car in the world. Also, the front wheel drive CVT configuration gets quite boring for car enthusiasts. This car has a large windshield that gets cracked easily.

The customer service was great at this location! They didn't have the Accord sport model in the color I wanted, so by the next day they had it there for me to view. Also, my 04 Civic had a problem that other mechanics could not diagnose, but Yuba City Honda diagnosed the problem and fixed it.

I bought two cars from this dealership the same day, form my first and second born. A Honda Accord and a Honda civic about 15,000 each used. They cars were in excellent condition, clean and included accessories like waterproof mats, etc. I received prompt attentive service.
