Boston.com is quickly becoming a popular source of great photo sets and slowly creeping up in world popularity in regards to news reporting. However, the latest article, about the 2009 Honda Fit has me perplexed. The reviewer focuses on the Fit’s ability to handle a curvy highway, more suited to a super cars review platform.
Giving into the fact that the Fit has looks only a mother could love, since I wouldn’t think ‘Bug Like’ is a positive remark, this brief review seems to give more life to the 09 Fit than deserved. It’s articles exactly like this that make me question, who paid for this review, and what relationship does the author have to it’s local Honda dealership?
I can’t put any faith in such a review, no matter the trim the 09 Fit may be wearing. Furthermore, if the author was this impressed, how many vehicles has he actually driven on a perfectly curvy road with suspension worthy of such a review? Nevertheless, the review has been done, and has done little to convince me that the 09 Fit is anything more than a throwaway car.
Yeah, yeah, I can already hear the negative comments and horrid emails from people who love their reasonably priced Fit. Personally I think any throwaway car over the $10k mark is too much and the Fit tested was closer to the $20k price point. No, I have not and will not drive a Fit, I’m scared of tiny spaces with wheels and the idea of a gas tank in the front seems like a bad idea. Maybe really did want to start 09 boom, but I don’t think this is what they had in mind.
