Default Another Fit Newbie...

In Texas! Picked up a leftover 2013 Fit Sport manual for a song since no one apparently wants or knows how to drive manuals anymore. This is my second Honda, the first was an 8th gen Accord V6. I sold a sports car (that I loved) because of this formula:

Tall Toddler + Big Carseat + 2 Door Sports Car = Epic Fail

Hopefully this car is as reliable as everyone says it is. It's fun to drive, is pretty peppy for a small engine, is very roomy, and handles well (dealer says suspension has S2000 heritage; don't know if that's true). Looking forward to learning about this car's quirks on the forum. Thanks for reading.

Man you lucked out our type of people scour the country looking for a manual sport and you good one. Good deal.

They really are VERY reliable with some people already over 300,000 with just wear items replaced.

Why don't you post the dealer name and city for the other guys that might be looking.

Good Deal . . . I initially went to go and purchase a manual transmission, but couldn't find a manual anywhere. I ended up with a auto with Honda floor mats for $16,100

Sure no problem we aren't selling them you would just be providing information to others that read us here on where to find what they want to buy. No problem at all for you.

You would just be providing a "public service" for other Fit people looking for one.

There are at least two Honda dealerships in the San Antonio area that had leftover 2013 Fit Manuals left (trucks are really popular around here). I got mine at Fernandez Honda. I think they have two left as of this writing, green and silver. If someone really wanted one, I suppose a fly and ride would be in order.
