Pros: gas mileage, resale value, Honda quality, interior space, well good handling vehicle
Cons: Poor gas peddle placement, no arm rest, floor mats not standard
Summary: They tested an automatic Fit and are disappointed by the 0-60 performance??? What next? The Fit doesn't get 50 mpg and have zero emissions??? It has a class leading 5 speed auto; Yaris makes due with a 4 speed auto, Versa 4 speed too. Did you mention safety? Check all the STANDARD safety features. Check the IIHS ratings.
I had a Black Sport auto (wanted a 5 spd, didn't want to wait for one). Happy with the auto probably more so a 5 spd manual. Averaged 33-36 mpg. Never a problem.
Does it have the power that my Quad Cab Hemi has, um no. Is it a good handling, safe, roomy and economical car. Yes. And it's a Honda.
Car and Driver's 10 Best 2007 and 2008 winner. What else can you say? Uh yea, the dash doesn't display 256 different color combinations, so don't buy it...
The 2009 HOnda Fit promises to be even better.
