Recalls

There have been 2 safety recalls issued from NHTSA.

VISIBILITYRecall Date: 06/24/2013
  • Summary: Honda is re-recalling certain model year 2007-2008 Fit vehicles covered under previous recall 10V-033. The remedy applied in this earlier recall may have been insufficient. In the affected vehicles, over time, the plastic cover may separate from the master power window switch allowing water to enter the driver's window and reach the master power window switch. If the master power window switch is damaged as a result of the water intrusion, overheating and failure of the switch may result.
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 143,083
  • Consequence: An overheated switch can cause smoke, melting and fire.
  • Remedy: Honda will notify owners in July 2013 and will instruct owners to take their vehicles to dealers to have a free inspection conducted. If the switch is damaged, it will be replaced free of charge. If the switch is not damaged, the owner will be instructed to await a second notification that will instruct them to return to the dealer to have a replacement switch installed free of charge. Honda anticipates it will have sufficient parts inventory to notify owners of vehicles with undamaged switches to return to dealers for replacement switches in Fall 2013. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009. Honda's recall number is JA6.
  • Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.

  • Consequence: THE LANGUAGE IN THE OWNER'S MANUALS IS NOT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CURRENT MANDATORY REQUIREMENTS.
  • Remedy: HONDA WILL SEND A POSTCARD TO DEALERS AND OWNERS WITH THE CORRECT NHTSA VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE INFORMATION AND WITH INSTRUCTIONS TO INSERT THE CARD INTO THE "REPORTING SAFETY DEFECTS" SECTION OF THE OWNER'S MANUAL.

Warranty

The Fit comes with Honda's basic bumper-to-bumper limited warranty for three years or the first 36,000 miles, and a powertrain warranty that's good for the first five years or 60,000 miles, with a corrosion warranty that's good for five years.

As the MSN review explains, "the Fit has a good amount of standard comfort, safety and convenience items--not to mention Honda's reputation for reliability, quality and high resale value." The Los Angeles Times writer agrees, saying the car's fit and finish is "tight, well screwed together and quiet, with that Honda DNA of essential competence."
