Scotty, my kid sister recently purchased a 2016 or 2017 Honda Fit with an automatic transmission. Are Honda Fits from the 2016-17 period at least fairly reliable? I understand that Honda is generally not known for making automatic transmissions that are SUPER-reliable. I also understand that the Honda Fits made for the North American market are assembled in Mexico, a situation that does NOT leave me with a good feeling. Keep in mind that my kid sister and I both live in the United States.

Check driver-door's edge VIN plate, will give Country-of-Manufacture. You're right to question those "Honda weak automatic transmissions" (per Scotty). Tell Sis to avoid driving like a MANIAC. P.S. Teach her how to DIY change her own oil, the #1 thing she can do for best longevity on that thing, esp. if it was "HECHO EN MEXICO."
