    It Is Everything I Thought It Would Be, And More! — I was always interested in the Mini-Cooper, but I could never justify owning one because it would not be practical for me. I have been interested in the Honda Fit ever since I read the first reviews. I finally got mine, and I'm totally pleased with it. The stick shift is a pleasure to use, and the acceleration is even better than I thought it would be. It corners great, with very little body lean. The suspension is good, but the ride is a little choppy, which is to be expected in a car with such a short wheelbase. I got 37.44 MPG with my first tank fill up which was a combination of city, freeway crawl, and mountain driving. Driving up Angeles Crest Highway to Mt. Wilson (5,710 ft elevation) was an easy climb using fourth gear on the way up. Fourth gear was also used to reduce downhill speed on the way down. This car loves the curves and winding roads. Am I a fan of the Fit? YES! But, I would not buy the automatic, because the performance is not nearly as good.

    Not Very Good Mileage For The Performance — I switched to an 07 Fit Sport with automatic transmission from an 05 Toyota Matrix XRS. I am getting 26mpg in town with the fit, 2 better than the Matrix. However, my 0-60 is now 12 seconds, as compared to 8.3 in the Matrix. For some reason, the Fit seems to have less power than I would have expected. With the exception of the power/gas mileage ratio, my only complaint with the Fit is the electrical system. The headlights noticeably change brightness while driving, and the Fit has 1 less 12volt outlet than the Matrix, and does not have the Matrix's very handy 115volt outlet on the dash. The emergency handling is incredible, though, considering the lack of stability control. Great car, just would have been better with the Civic engine.

    The Mighty Fit — I bough it as a back-up for my wife to take to work in NEW Jersey. It saved us a lot on gas compared to my Dodge Durango and Crossfire SRT6. Now its my go-to car whenever i make in-state trips. When I come back to the Bronx I almost never have trouble parking. This car does not take up a lot of space.I raved about it so much my brother bought TWO!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Room, peppy engine, easy to park where other cars will not fit ( no pun intended).

    Cons: None unless you drive in a lot of snow: then you  need to put on snow tires.

    Best 2007 Subcompact — -I've been driving the Fit for a year now, and what a great car! Tons of cargo room with the folding rear seats, I fit 3 people, 3 hockey bags and everyone's sticks in no problem. Roomy interior for a subcompact. -The car handles really well with wider aftermarket rims, and aftermarket parts (headers, intakes, etc) are super cheap to buy. I installed Progress lowering springs and they improved handling and looks a lot. If you unbolt the muffler and just put a straight pipe on it sounds really good, not too loud or raspy because of the factory resonator. With the manual tranny it's actually a lot of fun to drive. Being that the car is light acceleration is actually quite good, and if you have a long enough road you can peg the speedometer at 220km/h. Keep in mind though that it isn't a speed demon! -Ride quality is firm, you definitely feel the bumps in the road. -Build quality is typical Honda, nothing has ever broken and maintenance cost is low. Safety is also great with 6 airbags standard. -Gas mileage is good but not great, keep it out of VTEC (below 4000 RPM) for best mileage. Gas tank is pretty small so you have to fill up frequently. -My only gripes are the lack of options on the base model I drive (no power locks, no AC, only 2 speakers) and the car has a tendancy to rust around the rear keyhole and where the rear quarters meet the plastic.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handling, cargo room, build quality, safety, mileage, easy to mod

    Cons: Lack of options on base model, some rust prone spots, poor stereo, sluggish under 3500 RPM

    A Simple, Spacious, Cheap Yet Fun Runabout Honda. — Engine could use more poke, but chassis balance is great because the car weighs just a bit over 1000 kg (2200 lb). The build quality is good although cheap plastics abound, and refinement isn't a strong suit due to stiff rear springs and high levels of road/tire noise. It's small, cute as a button and easy to park, yet has more space than you would think - it can haul a lot of irregularly-shaped things. This car can run forever on regular servicing and is cheap to keep as a daily driver. Definitely fun to drive.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Unbelievable space, thrifty on gas, fun to drive

    Cons: Cheap interior plastics, road and tire noise

    Amazing — This car is great. It has very good acceleration and very good mileage for a non-hybrid car. Air bags all over the place. 5 gear semi auto transmission. Very fun to drive, light weight hatchback helps good acceleration and braking.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Lightweight hatch, lots of room, good mileage

    Cons: Doesn't do well against acciedents VS SUVs and other large vehicles
