Default How Long will do you think a Honda Fit Sport can last?

I have an opportunity to buy a used Honda Fit Sport for very cheap with 97k miles. It has had its regular maintenance at the dealer. However, I am afraid to buy a car with that many miles. I don't have a lot of money, so a new one is not an option. Do you think I would be buying a car that will fail in 30k miles?

Depends on how it was driven & taken care of. It's not uncommon for Hondas to peak 200,000 miles. But only if the driver took care of it & didn't drive stupid. Check out the Kelly Blue Book site for it's value.

The Honda Fit was rated as one of the most reliable vehicles in its class. Hondas, in general, are well renowned for their stability and long-lasting performance.































If it helps, I own a Toyota (which is another name that is associated with long life and reliability) that is over 130k miles and still purrs. And that's after I've put it through hell and back (like changing the oil only once a year and driving it through a South Dakota snow/dust storm in February).































I say get the car. I personally love my Honda Fit Sport. I did a lot of research before I decided on getting that particular model, and I'm very happy with my decision all around.

I wouldn't buy a car with that many miles on it unless I really had to. I'd look for something with no more than 30k miles on it

The Fit can easily go 200,000 miles or more if well maintained.

The Honda will keep running after it has 200,000 or 250,000 kms or even more, easily. It will last much longer than any domestic.
