    Yesterday, I got rid of my 2013 Ford F-150 Ecoboost that gave me nothing but problems and heartache, one thing after another. That truck had to have been the worst decision of my life. After blowing a $900 turbo coolant line that Ford refused to cover under warranty, that was the final straw. I said forget it, I'm not fixing it. I'm not paying Ford another dime. I drove it straight out of Ford's service bay right across the street to the Honda dealership and traded that sonofabitch in. I scored a 2013 Honda Fit Sport w/nav with only 17k on the clock and have fallen head over heels in love with it. It also eliminated all my car payments and put money back in my pocket.

    I've seen pics of people hauling machines in Honda Fits and tonight, I did a dry run with an empty cabinet. Lo and behold, this tiny little putt putt vehicle just became my newest and most favorite 35mpg pinball hauler. I have yet to see if it fits a full size vid, but when I know, I'll post pics. Sure, it can only haul one machine at a time, but whatever. No big deal.

    Quoted from Troz:

    My original 2009 Fit went to 240k miles before I got rid of it. I measured the new Fit when shopping which seemed ok. Went with a HR-V instead though
    Always have to post this pic in these threads, my favorite Fit haul. Couldn't believe it worked!
    Only games I couldn't fit were a Strange Science and an Arena, had to de-head both. Was able to fit a Haunted House but the front seat had to be at the front-most position, fun drive home.

    Can I ask what made you get rid of it?

    I know it's been a couple months but I finally got around to making a video showing how easy (or not?) it is to get a machine inside the Fit. Hopefully this encourages any prospective buyers who may be on the fence about getting one for hauling a pin or two. Also, for what it's worth, I hauled a Data East Simpsons to San Francisco (about 4 hours) and averaged 42-44mpg. Can't beat that.

    Quoted from cdnpinballer:

    How tall are you guys?
    With the pin in the FIT does both the driver and passenger seats go all the way back?

    I am only 5' 8" so I still sit very comfortably.

    Alas, I have since sold my Fit and my new Tacoma reigns supreme, but I would still highly recommend a Honda Fit to ANY pin owner.
