I would like to get as many threads in here as possible. Feel free to make a DIY thread and I'll add it to the short list.

Also, we need any Technical Service Bulletins or Recalls available to be listed here

I recently found a service bulletin for the window wipers. My front wipers would chatter when I used them during the rain. I took it to the dealer and he confirmed there was a bulletin.

[mine will be fixed in a few days]

Apparently a lot of people over at FitFreak.net are having issues with paint quality, or lack thereof. Apparently the paint is peeling off near the mounting points on the front and rear bumpers, and some people are complaining of excessive paint chipping on their hood and front bumper. Most of the dealers have been helpful, and repainted the peeling areas free of charge, however, no recall has been made as of yet.

I don't think the paint is peeling more like the bumper and fender is rubbing causing the paint to break.

Yeah, some people were putting nylon washers where it is supposedly rubbing. What worries me more is the people who took the cars on trips, and when washing the bugs off the car with a no-touch pressure washer, ended up getting chipped paint because of BUGS.

I still want a Fit, but I suppose some 3M clear paint protector stuff would be a worthy investment.

Well I hope it's the earlier fits that does all this. But yeah I would invest in 3M clear bra if you're worried, cause I'm trying to get mine done.

This is for the Wind noise.

Due to variations in windshield placement, airflow over
the windshield molding may cause it to vibrate.
CORRECTIVE ACTION
Fill the channel above the upper windshield molding
with silicone sealant.
REQUIRED MATERIALS
3M Black Super Silicone Sealant:
3M P/N 051135-08662
(One tube repairs three vehicles.)
3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner:
3M P/N 051135-08984
(One container repairs six vehicles.)
WARRANTY CLAIM INFORMATION
In warranty: The normal warranty applies.
Failed Part: P/N 73150-SLN-003

Out of warranty: Any repair performed after warranty
expiration may be eligible for goodwill consideration by

decision, before starting work.

Default Re:

MIL Is On With DTC P0451

SYMPTOM
The MIL is on with PGM-FI DTC P0451 (FTP [fuel tank
pressure] sensor circuit range/performance problem).
PROBABLE CAUSE
The ECM/PCM is misinterpreting the FTP sensor input.
CORRECTIVE ACTION
Use the HDS (with software version 2.005.008 (or
later) to update the ECM/PCM PGM-FI software. Refer
to Service Bulletin 01-026, Updating the ECM/PCM.
SOFTWARE INFORMATION
HDS Software Version 2.005.008 (or later).
WARRANTY CLAIM INFORMATION
In warranty: The normal warranty applies.
Failed Part: P/N 37820-RME-A13
Skill Level: Repair Technician
Out of warranty: Any repair performed after warranty
expiration may be eligible for goodwill consideration by
the District Parts and Service Manager or your Zone
Office. You must request consideration, and get a
decision, before starting work.
REPAIR PROCEDURE
Use the HDS to retrieve DTC P0451 freeze data and/or
the OBS (on-board snapshot), and review the VSS
(vehicle speed sensor) value.
If the VSS is less than 5 mph, use the HDS with
software version 2.005.008 (or later) to update the
ECM/PCM PGM-FI software.
If the VSS is more than 5 mph, continue with normal
troubleshooting. To use online troubleshooting, type
in the Keyword P0451 in the SEARCH BY VEHICLE
screen, or refer to the Fuel and Emissions section of
the 2007 Fit Service Manual.

in lamens terms, it pretty much means that your vechicle is throwing Check Engine with that code for your fuel tank pressue sensor which has to do with your emissions/evap system.

I am a dealer tech. so i do these recalls. Basically for the dtc and srs one we hook it up to the computer (pc) using a "transfer unit" and just reprogram the srs unit or the ecm. It really doesn't take any time. On a side note I'd like to add I think the Fit is Honda's best car right now.

Do any of your Fits feel weird when they're cold? My car feels so different when its cold [before being fully warmed up].

Its almost impossible for me to drive smoothly. Anyone experience anything like this?

My Fit always feels like the wheels need balancing when its cold at first, but after a few minutes it smooths back out. I figure its just flat-spotting on the tires from it sitting overnight.

All factory finishes have some sort of orange peel, some companies more than others. If you look hard enough you can even find dirt nibs, sags, or runs right from the factory.

I wonder if you're talking about the same thing I've been experiencing for a while.

When going from 1st to 2nd, sometimes it feels like when I push the clutch pedal down then shift out of 1st, the shifter feels like its popping out into 2nd on its own.

Problems with my 2007 Fit:
wipers make hard noise even with a lot of water in it
easy to be dented door panels
Paint in hood and bumpers seems too be thin
Passenger seat is very hard to slide front and back
when going uphill, its kind of lazy and reacts late to downshift to 1st gear (Sport A/t)
also feels weird when in a hurry drive it before the C(cold) symbol goes off
