    A Good Car — A good, reliable car that is affordable and gets good gas mileage. Works well as a daily commuter vehicle. It is also a good small family car. Once your children get bigger you may want to look for something roomier.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable with good gas mileage.

    Cons: Slightly under powered.

    I Love This Car!!! — This car was so easy to own and drive. It has not had any issues. If I ever buy a car again it will be a Honda. They are awesome. Gas Mileage is great and I seldom spent more than $36 a tank.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Amazing and flexible interior space.  Great speakers and sound.  Fits everywhere and everything. Cute as a button.  Gas mileage is amazing.  

    Cons: Nothing to report.

    The Fit Fits — I absolutely love my Honda Fit. I can fit a lot of musical equipment in it for my job and can also move larger items on the weekends and when I go shopping. It is a lot of fun to drive and parking is a breeze.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It lives up to its name and I am able to fit a lot of stuff (furniture, musical instruments, etc.) into the trunk.  I can also fit those items plus passengers.  The Fit is also easy to park which is especially important in the urban are where I live.  I can pull into small spots and also parallel park with ease.

    Cons: The only con so far is that I forget how small the car actually is in comparison to my old car when it comes to parking.

    I Simply Love It! — (1) Real Gas Saver! (I am able to get 37-40 mi/gal hwy and 31-35 mi/gal city, much better than official Honda sites state). (2) Compact size great for city parking! (3) Very easy to maneuver in tight spaces! (4) Incredible storage capacity! (I can fit my whole bike inside when the back-seats are folded down).

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: (1) Real Gas Saver! (I am able to get 37-40 mi/gal hwy and 31-35 mi/gal city, much better than official Honda sites state).
    (2) Compact size great for city parking!
    (3) Very easy to maneuver in tight spaces!
    (4) Incredible storage capacity! (I can fit my whole bike inside when the back-seats are folded down).

    Cons: No remote entry,
    No auxiliary port,
    No cruise control,
    Not made for speeding,
    Only blocks some of the road noise in cabin when windows are up

    Reliable, Lovable — It's a great little car that is bigger inside than you would expect. It's a perfect car for a small family or people on the go. It is a very reliable car and never had any issues mechanically at all. It handles fine even in snow.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great on gas and cargo space. Handles well.

    Cons: Not the most powerful car.

    Fun To Drive — This car is Great on Gas. It feels quick, even sporty, with the manual transmission. With back seats down there is a lot of cargo room. It looks great in black. I had no mechanical problems. I would recommend this car to a friend!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great on Gas
    Feels quick with the manual transmission
    with back seats down there is a lot of cargo room

    Cons: it is a small car, don't expect too much room with backseat riders

    Great Economical Car. — I liked this car due to the space flexibility and economy. You have to be comfortable with less features than a more expensive car. I have a bad back and the drivers seat was not supportative and adjustable enough for me. I think the car is okay, my wife and daughter (19) love it. The manual transmission is excellent.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Price, gas mileage, space flexibility, lots of cargo room, head room, leg room, shifting (manual), steering, easy to park, visibility

    Cons: A bit noisy (engine and road noise). No ammennities (outside temp, distance to empty), drivers seat not adjustable enough (i.e. lumbar support).

    Perspective On My Fit — It's been a very economical car for me and very low cost to maintain. It's also a blast to drive, making the daily commute grind much more enjoyable than it would normally be. My biggest gripe would be the front seats definitely could be more comfortable.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handles like a slot car

    Cons: Not too comfortable on long drives

    Dependable And Fun To Drive. — Dependable, drives nice, easy to maneuver and park. A few scratches on the rear bumper and left rocker panel but still looks like new. This car is rock solid transportation and has been well maintained with only synthetic oil used in the engine.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Looks good, drives good. Priced well below market.

    Cons: Too small for our growing family.
