This is RCR’s car. The first-generation Honda Fit was produced when Honda was coasting though senior year because he earned three A’s in the first semester. Now it’s March and he’s getting lots of C’s. So what if the car leaks rainwater? I’m HONDA! I’m terrific! The guidance councilor pulled Honda aside and told him “you better get your rear in gear (guidance councilor’s say this IRL) or you can say goodbye to Bucknell University!”
The second generation Fits are better. They don’t leak. Honda never officially admitted that the first gen-fits have horrible leakage. Dealerships have paper trails of service records showing new 1st-gen fits coming back with rainwater leakage problems caused by poor silent and in-door plastic rain barriers coming loose. Honda remains silent on this issue.
