Best Small Car For Lead Foot Inner City Drivers. — - Good sound - Good engine - Holds a lot of junk (40 square feet with the seats down) - easily upgradeable for better performance and more complete fuel burn (a $500 turbo with a in-cockpit slip switch, adds 35 horsepower and up) - Good aftermarket parts support

Pros: Lots of interior space, good sound system, 6 channels, upgradeable to handle 1200 watts, cool sounding engine, good mid tach range acceleration,

Cons: Not much I found

Ugliest Vehicle On The Road — "The fit is an ok vehicle for city driving but horrible for highway. It does not feel stable at highway speeds and theres not near enough power for passing on the highway. The inside is nice and the gas mileage is great but Honda leaned toward gas millage too much on this vehicle. The car feels very bumpy on most surfaces and isn't comfortable at all. And last of all this car is just plain ugly! I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone

Pros: Fuel economy
+ Standard side-impact and side curtain airbags
+ Configurable second-row seat
+ Available auxiliary input for portable music players

Cons: Front-heavy weight distribution
- Small, 14-inch wheels standard
- Only offered in hatchback form

A Practical 5-door That Will Bring A Smile To Your Face On The Track, Should You Go There. — The handling on this car is just fantastical. You could put as big an engine as would fit, and it would still handle like a Ferrari. (Not Quite, but you get the point. There is tons of room for a family of four to go puttering around town with, and with the great gas mileage, you wont have to fill up... well ever, so it seems. When you drive this thing hard and fast, you forget that you have two extra seats and luggage room behind you: it turns into a little sports car. It's great. Then you slam on the brakes from top speed, and you stop on the side of the road, get out and realize that you are in a 5 door little Honda again. You feel that this type of car should have a bigger name on it. Top Speed is around 165 km/h - i know that's not that impressive, but who cares, take this thing to Europe, drive the twisty roads! That's where this car was designed. Overall: great little car, and good in the eyes of the envro-guys too!

Pros: -Room for 4, luggage and more!
-Handles like a Go-Kart.  A FAST Go-Kart.  

Cons: -Engine is underpowered for the amazing chassis
-Drum brakes (rather than discs) in rear (which smell bad if you brake really, really hard)

I Love My Car! — Terrific handling, great mileage, super hauler for its size. I wish the standard AM/FM stereo had had a USB port or a headphone jack, but it didn't...I had to put in a third party one to get that. It doesn't look as good as it would have with the standard one. Hondas go forever (the last one I had I drove for 13 years and only sold it because I was moving overseas and couldn't take it with me). This one is now 7 years old and the only signs of wear are a couple of dings on the doors.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Wonderful little big car....you'd be amazed at the amount of stuff you can get into it, and the great mileage if you know how to drive it right.

Cons: Not enough colors available for the base model with a manual transmission.  I had to buy a light blue one (I wanted steel grey) because that was the only one the dealer could find.

Sporty But Economical 4-door Hatchback — I love this car. It drives great, has lots of cool features, and has a suprising amount of room for how small it is! It is very easy to configure the backseats to be either up or down, or forward, to maximize cargo space or accommodate passengers. My mom has one of these too and also loves it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: feels like a race car but its a gas sipper, reliable,
low maintenance cost, handles great

Cons: the color is somewhat obnoxious..and i bought it used so there are some cosmetic blemishes, front seats have not so much room. these cars do not come with sunroofs or moonroofs.

'08 Honda Fit Sport At! — Very fun car to drive. Excellent gas mileage. Honda reliability. Looks great, inside and out. A bit of road noise on the highway. However, great stock sound system. Acceleration can become very weak with the A/C running. This is not so noticeable in local streets but mostly on highways. An air-filter-element change is definitely needed; the stock paper air filter element is just too restrictive. Recommend a K&N replacement. The basic warranty is only for 1 year though.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive, great gas mileage, upgradable, reliable

Cons: Road noise at high speeds, cramped engine bay, no rear hatch keyhole, basic warranty is only 1 year

Well Rounded Ride — This Thing is awesome, I'm so happy I went with it over the civic. it holds more feels like a sports car, the 5 speed is smooth and a monkey could use the clutch. I recommend this to anyone hoping to find something that handles well and winds up great. no it is not an F1 racer but it picks up quick enough and gets no less than 30 average MPG. even the way I drive ( I like to hear it wind above 4,000 Rpm), and I managed to get 44 driving to Duluth. you can't beat that now a days. I can't praise the handling enough, this thing sticks through the twists. It is a very sporty little ride with an eager look, it wants to go take on everything. well rounded ride. Word

Pros: Everything

Cons: None

Seat belt recall has created shortage of used vehicles. Used prices seem far too high, even for a Honda, and Toyota build quality and reliability is so much better.
