What is the best year for a used Honda Fit?

My best friend has the cutest little Honda Fit. She said it gets great gas mileage, too. I’m thinking about buying one—but used, of course. What’s the best model year for a used Honda Fit?

You’re right, they’re adorable cars! The best year for a used Honda Fit will depend on your preferences and priorities, but here are some great model years to consider:
  • 2014 Honda Fit: pros: excellent reliability, roomy trunk, good fuel economy, great handling, few customer complaints; cons: poor soundproofing, stiff suspension
  • 2017 Honda Fit: pros: impressive cargo capacity, great visibility, base trim comes with many standard features (including a backup camera); cons: higher price point than other cars in its class
  • 2019 Honda Fit: pros: smooth ride quality, same long list of standard features and top-notch fuel economy; cons: handling is not as fun as previous models
There you have it!
Before you go, make sure to familiarize yourself with what to look for when buying a used car. Since you’re buying a car that’s been previously owned, knowing the total mileage and its condition is important. You don’t want to spend more time paying for repairs than enjoying your time driving your Fit! Good luck with your search!
