To use while doing the 260hp/360 tg ecoboost 2.0l in the MGB and get parts and such for the 1957 Series 1 Land Rover V8 build.

Hauled the block assembly of the 4.6 liter 283ci SBC and a bunch of parts and others stuff that's going into the S1 Landy and this 3 foot wide 6.5 ft tall parts shelf
All in the back of a Honda Fit
35mpg. 0-60 in seven seconds five speed
The perfect parts getter

Rob, that's what a GT is for. But Hondas are nice.

That's why it's called a Honda "Fit", because everything does thumbs up

I've wanted a Honda Fit since I was a youngster. Never could really find one.

Who ever tested it at 8.5 was sleeping.
Took it to Solo2 and timed a launch at 3k rpm spun the tires in 2nd and it was in the sevens.

Congratulations on your purchase. Hatchbacks are amazingly versatile. My GTI with the seats folded is cavernous. I seriously considered a Fit at one point. There is a lot to like there. It was a little too buzzy for me at interstate speeds. This was a few years ago so current models may have improved. It was though like most Honda a good value and probably bulletproof.

Generally doing pretty well. Tend to set misfire codes around the 80-100K mileage. Exhaust valves get tight - adjust all and freshen the plugs - drive it some more.
