Clear coat and paint on the Honda Fit are defective. Peeling began after about 3 1/2 years of ownership. There are large patches of missing paint on the roof and a patch on the hood.

Fit 4-cyl

My daughter had an accident, this is her account: I was driving my 2010 Honda Fit on highway 880 northbound in the vicinity of alameda on Friday, January 16th 2015. I had been driving for at least a half hour on the highway and was in the left most lane going about 70 mph. Suddenly without any warning my car began to swerve violently to the right into the lane to my right. My first thought was that one of the tires had blown out, so I took my foot off the gas and did not touch the brakes, thinking just that I should try to keep the car away from other vehicles and as gently as I could bring it to the side of the road away from traffic. Immediately after the first swerve, the car did not react in the slightest to my steering attempts to keep it straight or away from traffic, and it swerved left and right a couple more times before hitting the concrete median on the left hand side of the highway. The front of the car crunched into the median, and the whole car flipped on its passenger side and scraped against the median before finally coming to a halt upside down. Once the car stopped I saw that miraculously nothing inside of the car was impeding my exit, and the glass on both the windows had completely shattered, so I undid my seatbelt and crawled out of the passenger side window and immediately stood up. Thankfully no other cars or passengers were involved, 911 was called, and the policeman who came said the incident sounded like it was due to tire damage from my description but then examined the wheels of the car and reported that he didn"T see anything awry with them, leaving the cause of the accident a mystery. I heard no sounds preceding the swerving, smelled no strange smells, noticed nothing strange about the car?S steering, and have had no indication whatsoever of anything being ?off" with the car before the incident.
