    Honda Fit

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Just wanted to show off a few pics of our new car.



    And yes, three greyhounds fit in the back! lol



    So far, we're averaging 35 MPG. I expect that will improve as the engine breaks in, too. We had a Camry before that got decent mileage, but it wasn't nearly as fun to drive.

    But how many bikes fit in a Fit? Sweet dogs! Are they rescues? I read that a lot of greyhounds are rescues.

    Yep, they are all ex-racers. Usually can't find many greyhounds that haven't raced.

    I haven't tried to fit any bikes in the Fit yet! I know you can get one in with the front wheel off, but I may just put on a rack. I'll have to update once I figure it out.

    2 or 3

    Nice fit and I have put two in and plan on 3 when I go to Co. I put my LHT without seatpost in upside down and my roommates Volpe in rightside up and both bikes without front wheels. I hope 3 fit in the Fit for the trip.

    I did find this on the internet as one way to get a bike in, haven't tried it though:

    Cute. Is that the Sport version? How does it drive? DH used to entertain himself back in his single days by test-driving cars on the weekends with a friend. I'd love to go and test-ride one (we are not currently shopping for a car). And yay to animal rescue!!!

    It is the sport, yes. 5 spd manual transmission. The automatic isn't as responsive as the manual, but still has some pep for a teeny car. The handling is great too, really takes corners well. It's not a sport car nor a luxury car by ANY imagination, though. lol But for a subcompact, it rocks.

    Woohoo! Congrats! I love my Fit.

    Last race Mr. Andrea and I went to, we packed (among other things): both roadbikes (upside down, wheels off), his TT bike (upside down, wheels off, seatpost/saddle out), 4 sets of wheels, 1 disk wheel, toolbox, crashbox, cooler, rubbermaid container full of food, and several duffel bags.

    I am totally confident that if we removed all of the pedals, that we could get at least one more bike in there.

    Wow, that's awesome!

    I showed the car to come coworkers, and they were totally enthralled with the various seat configurations. One exclaimed "It's like a Transformer car!" lol

    I like it! And I REALLY like that color! Is that like a metallic coral color, or is that just the photo?

    The picture is very close to the real color. It's called "blaze orange".
