Specifically a newer one like the 2012 model? It's great to hear that a Honda Fit can survive the trip. What model of Honda Fit?
FYI, I've taken my old 1994 Miata out there TWICE! It survived the trip just fine but it's also older and simpler. Personally, that's the easiest answer. Bring an OLD car with simple electronics and good air filters.

Even then, if you cover the vents with some plastic or something and don't enter your car much during the trip you shouldn't expect to see much dust or other crap in there.
