There are a couple great options for a trunk-mounted bike rack on a 2007 Honda Fit (so long as it is not a Sport model of '07 Fit).

The trunk-mounted bike rack I highly recommend for your 2007 Honda Fit is the Kuat Highline. This is available as a 2-bike rack # HIT2B (Black) or # HIT2S (Silver) as well as a 3-bike rack # HIT3B (Black) or # HIT3S (Silver).

The Highline is unique in that it features four clear protective strips which you will put on the rack where it contacts your Fit. These strips keep the rack from scratching or even slightly scuffing your car. This rack attaches to your Honda with six cam-buckle straps that have padded hooks on them which will also prevent any type of damage to your car. The Highline has anti-sway cradles which keep the bikes from contacting one another as well as your car, has a 35 lb per-bike capacity and weighs only 13 lbs so it is very easy to handle.

I do recommend using the Security Strap for Trunk Mounted Bike Carriers # TH533 as a method to lock the Highline to your Fit as well as Cable Lock # SA981 to lock your bikes to the rack and help protect your investments.

For a more economical option I recommend checking out the Hollywood Racks Expedition # HRF6-2 for a 2-bike rack or # HRF6-3 for a 3-bike version. These are solid trunk-mounted racks that will simply do the job. Also keep in mind that when using any hanging rack you'll need bike frame adapter bar # 64005 if your bike is dual-suspension, has a step-through frame or you want to carry a small children's bike. The bar will give those bikes a horizontal mounting point so they can be carried by the rack.

I've added a number of video reviews for you to check out.
