Question about 2006 Honda Fit
Had a similar problem on our 1.2 2002 Jazz. Occasional random jerkiness with no apparent pattern and every time we took it in to the garage it behaved beautifully. Eventually they diagonosed a faulty EGR valve, replaced it (it was under warranty) and we've had no problems since. Apparently this not uncommon.

Sounds like the EGR valve. I have had to replace mine recently and it's a known problem with the Jazz. If you're handy, it's not a difficult job, but you may need to reset the OBD II computer to remove any detected fault.
The symptoms for mine were that the car ran smoothly when the throttle was open, and when it was closed, but when you just have your foot on the accelerator (gas pedal) for example crusing at 30-45mph in 5th gear, it lurches all over the place like you've got a kangaroo under the bonnet.
If cleaning the part doesn't fix it, then you need a new valve. Unfortunately they are expensive - about £215 just for the part, and I can tell you from experience not to bother with a used part. :( You can save on labour if you have a torque wrench though - it's dead easy to change.
