3 Engine And Engine Cooling problem of the 2012 Honda FIT

Failure Date: 05/11/2022

Driving down the highway the spark plug was blown out of the engine head and the car lost power immediately. The car has approximately 12,000 miles and all oem parts from the manufacture. Maintenance was kept up on the car. This is extremely dangerous since this highway is usually busy with cars and tractor trailers. My son was in the left lane and was almost hit by a tractor trailer due to the violent explosion of the spark plug being blown out of the engine. In addition, was unable to get over to the shoulder of the road and had to stop in the left-hand lane on route 80 in NJ which is very dangerous. Both of my sons were in the car when this occurred. The car was towed to my licensed mechanic who confirmed that the spark plug was blown out of the engine which caused the loud noise and loss of power. There was no warning, symptoms or messages before this occurred which is why I am extremely concerned for the safety of others who own this type of vehicle.

Failure Date: 11/06/2021

After the routine transmission fluid flush at about 36k miles, the vehicle stalls out/jerks after switching the selector from p to d. The issue is intermittent though. Also, the vehicle got a worsened mpg which decreased from 38-39mpg (average) to 31-33mpg on the same driving routine. And most important, the cvt transmission "switches" to neutral every time you decelerate making the vehicle unstable at higher speeds. The vehicle was inspected at the two different dealerships and none of those bring out a solution, stating that this is beyond their ability to fix something since no warning lights or messages are being illuminating. Called the manufacturer, got advised to follow up with another dealership.

7 Engine And Engine Cooling problem of the 2017 Honda FIT

Failure Date: 08/24/2021

At cold start up, the engine rattles loudly for about 2 seconds. This is intermittent and occurs on cold starts when the car has not been started for 6-8 hours.

I purchased a new Honda Fit in 2018. In November 2019, at 31,000 miles several indicator lights came on. The check engine, tpms, vehicle stability assist, electric power system. The car was running smoothly but I was told by a Honda dealer there was excessive carbon build up. The cost to clean it out would be $500. They claimed that because this was caused by an outside element and a part had not failed that the warranty would not cover this. I fought it and they did a one-time courtesy repair at no charge. June 2021, 51,000 miles and the same thing happened all over again. Car running smoothly, no hesitation, no misfires. Different Honda dealer told me it was excessive carbon build up on manifold and this time it would be $604 plus tax. I asked if there was a maintenance service that would prevent this from happening and I was told no. That the fuel system service offered does not reach the areas of the engine where the carbon builds up. This is a problem with direct injection engines. Clearly there is a flaw in the direct injection engine design that Honda has known about for years and does not want to take responsibility for. This is unacceptable and Honda is committing consumer fraud by knowingly selling a flawed product that jeopardizes the safety of their customers. I do not feel safe driving this car with these failures in the engine, not knowing when this problem is going to happen again and facing an expensive repair bill every time it does happen. Not to mention the inconvenience of being without a car for several days while it is being repaired. I have documentation to back all of this up.

9 Engine And Engine Cooling problem of the 2015 Honda FIT

Failure Date: 05/12/2021

I took the car into the Honda dealer in bellevue, wa for an oil change and a buyer's inspection with leak down test. The next day, I could hear a loud rattling noise when I started the car. I took it back to Honda and they say it is the vtc actuator, along with timing chain, serpentine belt and water pump, which they did not list as issues during the 1st appointment, which was supposed to be a total inspection of the car. Not sure if they missed it or caused the additional issues. I took it to a 2nd mechanic, told him my whole story, and he said it was the vtc actuator too. I researched online and apparently many people have this issue, and most catch it before their 60k mile warranty is up. However, my car is at 74k miles. Apparently Honda was redesigned the vtc actuator, because it was such a big problem. However, they have not gone back to fix all the cars that had the issue. The mechanic says if I drive with this condition it could cause engine failure, which if it happens while driving, could pose a safety risk. I strongly feel that this is something that Honda should recall or at least extend the warranty to 100k miles for this issue.

11 Engine And Engine Cooling problem of the 2015 Honda FIT

Failure Date: 03/11/2021

I bought Honda Fit 2015 on Jan 11, 2015. Last year I got the problem with the engine start/stop button. The engine did not start when I pushed the button many times. On June 13, 2020, I brought my card to Honda dealer. They said they have to replace the starter. I left the car at dealer and come back to pick up the same day. At dealer parking lot, I started my car and it did the same problem again. I came back inside the office and let the technician knew. So, I left my car again at dealer for them to fix it. At that time, my car was 29,221 miles only for 5 and half years. I not drive my car a lot just about 12 miles per day. Dealer told me they had to fixed something else and charged me for total $750. I think it is not fair for me to pay defective product. I file the complain with Honda company on June 2020 and did not receive any reply back. Feb 20, 21, I received a letter from Honda about warranty extension for 2015-17 Fit keyless start system error with dtc b12c5. Honda would reimburse if I fixed that problem before. I filed paperwork with all receipts on 02/23/21. Today, I got the phone call from Honda claim department 03/11/2021 they stated I did not qualified for reimburse because the part they replaced not qualified. I still don't understand why? because of the problems, one day I had to stay on parking lot for 30 minutes tring to start the engine. I was late for work and late for my appointments twice. The reimburse claim number: 11377164. The claim department told me my case was closed because I am not qualified for this situation. I am not a technician, I don't know what did they do with the car. The only thing I know is with 29,221 miles Honda engine start/stop button not working. This is the 2nd Honda car I have. For this experience I will not buy any car from Honda anymore.

This defect should be repaired regardless of whether the car is under warranty because the defect could lead to catastrophic engine failure.

While my son was driving the car in portland, oregon, at highway speeds the engine cut out making control of the vehicle very difficult. The car was returned to the Honda dealer where the problem was diagnosed as (mechanics report) "compression gaskets on plug 1 & 2 are stuck on the top threads, allowing the plugs to be tightened but compression is passing by the washer and into the spark plug tube. " "coils one and two had heat damage and carbon tracking. " four spark plugs replaced along with coils for plugs 1 & 2. The car would not accelerate and "was in limp mode " when driven back to the Honda dealer. Spark plugs are rarely changed these days - appears to have been a factory defect.
