    Honda Fit — I love everything about this car. It's not fast, but it's quick and it handles well. It's built solid, made 100% in japan. I spend $30/week on gas driving 300 miles a week. It's fun, it's gorgeous, and there's tons of aftermarket. Honda did well with the Fit... until 2009.

    Pros: Everything. Literally.

    Cons: No turbocharged option factory

    The Fit Fits Me — I am not a fan of big or fancy cars, to me it's good enough if it takes me to work and back, so I am not the right person to write a review. Hm, let's see... I can say that I am very happy with my choice so far - the car is very roomy (I keep the back seats folded down most of the time), fuel-efficient, the stereo is great, and I even got the paddle-shifters, so I can change shifts manually.

    Pros: cute and fuel-efficient, and it's a Honda!

    Cons: can't think of any so far

    Honda Fit Review — Sweet Gas Mileage - 39 highway! - Sweet Price 16,000 Starting price. A little week in the power but hey what can you expect from a car that gets 39MPG. This car a loads of space. When you get a brochure on this car it is shown with a Llama laying down in the car. Now I haven't taken my llama anywhere but it is good to know if I needed to, I would have the space. Seriously though, this car is worth every penny and more. I will likely drive a honda the rest of my life.

    Pros: Great MPG, Great  Price, Great Resale Value, LOADS of space for a small car.

    Cons: Lacking in power going up hills

    Hot Little Gas Sipper — Not as small as you might think, especially on the inside. Fun to drive especially the Manual Transmission. My family of four fits perfectly fine and still tones of room for groceries and such.

    Pros: Light on gas 33 city  38 hwy are fed numbers.  Very nimble, fly by wire
    throttle, peppy, tons of room, very quiet and smooth riding car

    Cons: little light on power but has enough to do what it's intended to do.  
    Should have darker tint option, AC struggles in 90+ sun

    This Is My Car! — Unbeatable gas mileage, more room then you can tell from looking at the exterior, and very comfortable.

    Cute, Fun, And Easy To Drive! — I really cannot believe how much room is inside. I have a very tall friend (6.4 ft.) that rode in it on Saturday and he had plenty of head & leg room. Collapse the back seats in one of two different ways, and you'll have as much room as many SUV's. Also, there's a way to configure the front seat with the back seat to make a flat bed for sleeping comfortably.

    Pros: Feels sooooo roomie inside!

    Cons: No real trunk to keep things outta sight.
    I have it in "Blaze Orange" and it really isn't a very pretty shade of orange. I had a MazdaSpeed Protege in "Spice Orange" and it was a delicious shade!.

    My New Daily Driver — A great little car! Excellent on gas and has alot of versatility. Car handles very well especially with lower profile tires. Car has been on Car and Driver's 10 Best since introduction to North America 2 years ago.

    Pros: Fuel economy, amount of storage space, head room, excellent handling for a sub-compact, good resale value, built very well (no rattles), one of few Hondas that are still made in Japan.

    Cons: My only complaint is that the seats attract lint like a lint brush.

    I Fit — I saw this car on TV on day like a year ago when it first came to the states. Then I was in several car mags that I read winning against car like the Yaris and the Rio, and the once king of the sub compact the vw rabbit. So I went for a drive only to find out that all my local dealership had sold every one so I waited for 6 months and mine came in. I loved it. Also you should note I am 6'9'' and about 235lbs. so im not small. I fit and it a great ride. Honda has done a good job at keeping it simple and just making it a car not a dam science project. So hat off to the Honda boys. Any question just ask

    Pros: Nice little jack Russell motor
    You get fogs with the sport and a 200-watt stereo (I am adding 2
    alpine subs)
    There is so much room
    It handles the best in its class
    Cheap

    Cons: 109 bhp, but hey it no racer.... yet
    No real extras
    Some blind spots on the A pillar and the back right because of the
    head rest but you can just fold the seats.

    Pros: Everything is great!!

    Cons: I miss my console (even an arm rest would be nice)
