Honda fit aria 2007

Question

Please, im about to purchase my 1st car and its a honda fit aria 2007. But i need to know whether there are any issues or problems with these models. Coz, im on a tight budget, so regular repairs will sink me financially. Please advise me for any other car models to look into with good fuel and maintenance. Price between 2-3Mn. Thanks in advance.

Whether a car, especially of the vintage you are looking at, will make you sink in garage costs is dependent on how the car has been maintained by previous owners more than the reliability ratings of the car when it was new. So get it checked properly by the agents and/or a reputed 3rd party car check place rather than just going for a car just because it looks shiny.

The "Fit" and a few other Hondas of that era are known to develop CVT issues (CVT issues can develop in others cars as well and no reason to demonize the car for it...). So look in to transmission issues and any maintenance done on it. Apart from that the engine variants have been generally solid (again..provided it had been taken care of....)

Also, please remember that the Fit Aria was assembled in Thailand and exported to Japan. A lot of car salesmen and owners feel they can raise the price considerably higher than that of the City by claiming that it is manufactured in Japan (which its not....)..

If you are looking for an actual sedan type vehicle...I suppose the Tiida and the Vios will fall in to the same category.
