2007 Honda Fit Owner Comments

Without warning, seat forward/back mechanism failed. Locking driver's seat in position closest to steering wheel. Examined mechanism under seat and discovered cable connected to seat lever had frayed to single wire. Seat could not be moved from position. Honda service technician stated he had never seen this problem; because cable was integral part of bottom seat frame, it was necessary to replace entire frame at cost of approximately 530 dollars. Because dealer did not stock frame it was necessary to drive car with approximately five inches space between steering wheel and driver's chest. When I contacted Honda's customer service representative, I was informed "Honda does not consider this type of failure to be a safety issue" and, because the care was out of warranty, was not responsible for the cost of repair. I then pointed out the Fit's owner manual contains the following caution "see pages 11-13 for important safety information and warnings about how to properly position the seat and seat backs". the pages include the following warning: "if you sit too close to the steering wheel or dashboard, you can be seriously injured by an inflating front airbag, or striking the steering wheel or dashboard". the representative repeated that Honda did not consider this to be a safety matter. It should be noted that the passenger-side seat mechanism (which is used with approximately the same frequency as the driver's side) showed virtually no sign of wear. There is no mention in the owner's manual of a need to check under the seat for cable wear; nor is such inspection included in the dealer's service inspection checklist. Because of the sudden nature of the failure and the warnings contained in the owner's manual, it would appear this in fact is definitely a safety issue.

I just wanted to report that the front seats in my car were designed so poorly that after driving over 3 hours on a trip this week in it my lower back became sore. And even after 3 days later it is still sore. I've owned plenty of cars in my lifetime and never have I run across seating that has ever left me sore in them. I'm sorry if this complaint doesn't belong here but when I filed a complaint over here www.hondaproblems.com/trends/uncomfortable-seats/ that site suggested I file a complaint about these poorly designed seats here too. In fact I've noticed plenty of other people who have complained about these seats too on the internet.

Water is leaking and causing rust in the cavity where the spare tire sits. According to online research, this is common in the 2007-2008 Honda Fit. The water runs down along the inside panels and pools in the spare tire cavity. This has caused the spare tire and jack to become completely corroded and rusted. Water then spills from that cavity to the foot space of the back seat. The carpet becomes water logged. The seats, when folded down, become wet. The supports for the seats are rusted.

The first time I noticed a problem was in Feb. 2014 when I entered my vehicle there was frost on the inside of my windshield. Since then I have been having frost or moisture on the inside of my windows when I enter my vehicle in the morning. I have had to vacuum the back floor on both sides after every rain storm. Mould is forming on the carpeting and the back seats. My main concern is my 5 & 7 year old grandkids who I have to Transport to and from school. Honda doesn't seem to want to address this problem. There doesn't seam to be a fix for this problem when I have check various web sites. I ran a test this morning by running water from a garden hose over the top of my Honda. I could see water running from the underside of both rear doors into the rear floors.

This car is leaking horrendously. I have to vacuum the flooring of this car several times a week to prevent mold from growing on the walls, flooring and seats of the vehicle. No after market work has been done and we have now had to remove all carpet and padding to prevent further mold infestation. This is an all too common and dangerous complaint for this vehicle (and this year specifically for this model). Honda refuses to address the issue and it is endangering the health of everyone who rides in my car on a daily basis. Please help - this has devalued my 5 year old car and made it a complete lemon!

I own a 2007 Honda Fit sport that was in a high speed crash. Reading the complaint # 10228324 I can relate to this issue. I was hit on the very front left side at about 55 mph and then pushed off the road to the right. The right front of the car hit a dirt burm around 30 mph. The air bags didn't deploy but the air bag light stayed on until it was reset. The body shop advised me that the impact cut the wiring harness to the air bags and sensor's had been cut in half and the sensors were cracked. It sounds like the left side of this model Fit has many flaws and I am lucky that I was seriously injured. The only answer I can get on this issue is that the impact wasn't in the red zone for the air bags to deploy. I'm sorry but if they don't deploy during a front end impact why would I ever think they would have ever deployed with the wires cut in half. The red zone isn't the issue. The car is a death trap on wheels. So much for the safety ratings because it seems like this car has an air bag issue. The recall because of salt, B.S. because I live in Texas and have 2 of these cars that the passenger sensor is still shorting out even after they replaced it. Texas isn't one of the states that is in the multi salt states that the recall covers. I think someone need to take a long hard look at the issue before some does loose there life. Enough said...... my foot also falls asleep and hurts like you could never imagine after I drive only 25 miles. Complaint # 10221630 -- I feel your pain..... I have 2 of these cars and each one puts my foot to sleep no matter how I move the seat. ----

Purchase a 2007 Honda Fit on 3/15/08 with 3,300 miles on it. After driving it 150 miles in 3 days now have sharp pain in my right foot as the angle my foot takes to depress the accelerator is stressful. I now have pain just walking around. Many people on Fit forums also have pain from driving this car.

The contact has a 2007 Honda Fit. Every three to four months, the contact has to replace the air in the tires at least three to four times within the month. The failure occurs intermittently in each tire. She also stated that the driver's seat position causes severe muscle pain in her right foot. She has changed the position of the seat, but the failure remains. The dealer and manufacturer have not yet been notified. The current mileage was 1,160 and failure mileage was 1,100.
