    I made a 5+ hour drive with my Twilight Zone in my Fit when I got it. No accident, but I did have it strapped down to the floor of the car with ratchet straps. It felt like it would have stayed in place even if my car would have rolled.

    As for that Fit recall, there's the old saying of don't buy the first year model of a new vehicle.

    The 2015 Fit is quite nice, although you lose 4 cubic feet of storage(rear window is more angled, like on a Focus), you gain an HDMI port(not like I needed it), lose the under-rear-seat containers, lose a few cupholders(so, less than 7), and a 6th gear in the base model. I miss my 6th gear.

    Quoted from Santeh:

    As for unloading, however, I have found it a little bit of a task to lift some pins onto the bottom lip of the cargo opening when removing a pin (I am not a big person). Yet, to date, all has worked out with no known loading, hauling, or unloading damage to either a pin or my Fit.
    :

    I own a 2012 fit. Standard pallet size 40x48. Cargo area is 40x48. Pallet wont fit but 2 half pallets will. I covered one half pallet with a 20x48 sheet of abs so pin will slide easy. pallet raises inside floor even with hatch.

    I picked up my 2015 today. I will be attempting to move a batman forever in it next week.

    Sweet, let us know how it goes! and take pics!

    #56 4 years ago

    Well I did fit my batman forever in my 2015 fit today. It was very very tight length wise. I had to pull my front seat really far forward to the point when I crawled in the drivers seat (im 6' 2") my knees were touching the dash. The biggest problem with this pin was the bat gun for the plunger. If it had a regular plunger i could have moved my seat back that much more. Anywhere here are some pix, feel free to fire away with questions. Oh and i also fit my pin dolly on the side of the machine inside the car.

    I have always loaded games plunger first. The plunger can fit right between the front seats, and once you pull the game out you can set it right on the ground - it's usually just a one man job.

    Thanks for the 2015 info, though, schuylerlane!

    #58 4 years ago

    I totaled at 2007. Hit black ice doing 55, fish tailed then went into a spin. Went up a hill backwards and hit a tree. I walked out of the accident with a bruised elbow and a few cuts. I haul all of my pins in the fit. Car has its problems. Replaced 3 of the 4 coil packs before 100k miles. Broke an axel at 120k. Oh and entire ECU went out at 8k. That I did not fix myself but thankfully my warranty covered it.

    A plunger like that I always remove before loading and then load front first like Mot does...

    #60 4 years ago

    Woohoo! Thanks for the update! Now to go find something to buy....

    First haul in the new Fit (barracora)

    A month after getting my fit on Xmas eve last year I awoke to this . Fit Wheels are the number 1 stolen
    in the US I had no idea. The Drifter guys steel them for the tires that they trash while racing.

    Then about two months later I was rear ended from a stop along with four other cars. I was actually knocked onto the divider. The cops didn't believe me thinking I drove on to the divider until they saw the license plate numbers from the car that hit me on my rear bumper you can barely make them out in the pic. The repairs were so good you would never know it happened and it it still handles great its a great car its the 2014 sport model it has paddle shifting.

    Older post, but wow that was risky. I picked up my second BF TUE and first thing I did before loading was remove the gun. Way too easy to break and no hope of getting a replacement. Besides it is only 6 bolts.

    Wow, I didn't know any cars still had drum brakes. Sucks about the bad luck you've had with your car, glad it's all been resolved to your satisfaction.

    You guys and your "can I stuff a pinball machine in a tiny car" threads crack me up. Man up! Get a truck.

    #68 3 years ago

    99.9% of my car usage is city driving to and from work. I might pick up a pin 3 or 4 times a year. Owning a truck would be horrifically inefficient.

    #69 3 years ago

    Hold out until the new HRV is released from Honda they look really promising

    #70 3 years ago

    I have a 2009 Honda Fit and its a champ hauling pins! I thought that honda stopped making the fit a few years ago? I'd buy another after owning ours for over five years now. Has served us very well.

    I don't need a big truck to prove anything ,

    That too.

    Honestly I am leaning toward either a Scion XB, (I drove one and they are a blast), the only issue with that is they are ending production at the end of the year
    or the Honda HRV ( looks promising with the fit's magic seats and the room of a CRV ).

    Same here. 5 miles each way there and back.

    Quoted from dondon4720:

    Me neither. But I find a Tacoma to be the perfect size for hauling just about anything. It is very easy to load and unload a game all by myself if I have to. And with a shell on the back, the pinball machines never meet any weather. I can even fit people in the extra cab area. Works for me!
