Pros Too bad CNET doesn't know what they are talking about. All they could complain about is "the complete lack of bluetooth support". Unfortunately for them, Bluetooth is a clearly available factory option for the 2010 Fit, and I have it on my car.
Cons A 6th gear would have been nice - a little high revs on the freeway.
Summary Great car - over 30 mpg on the first tank.

Pros Cavernous interior space. Decent gas mileage. Sport car-like handling. Modern design. High drive height.
Cons Gas mileage not as good as reported in my experience. Somewhat of a harsh ride.
Summary I've owned my share of Hondas (2 CRX's, 1 Civic Sedan) beginning with a 1986 Honda CRX HF that I purchased used in 1989. Until now that was my favorite Honda. I bought this 2010 Fit Sport used in April for $12k with 20k miles and absolutely LOVE it. I can't imagine a better quality, more versatile car for the money. This thing has quite a bit of pep from a stop as well but not quite as much power when driving at higher speeds.
I do mostly city driving and have never gotten above 29.5mpg. I haven't taken it on a road trip of any length yet but when we do shorter drives (under 20 miles one way) on the interstate it still never gets above 30mpg. This is just a minor complaint because even 30mpg is still good. Also, the ride is a little harsh over bumps/potholes but that is the trade off for such good handling. It has a firmer suspension like that of a German car.
Also, for those with elderly parents this car is VERY easy to get in and out of. My mother-in-law has had several strokes and isn't very mobile. She can easily get in and out of the backseat.
I highly recommend this vehicle. Professional reviews say this model is getting a little dated when compared to competitors. The only possible feature I can agree with them on is the transmission. It shifts just a tad rough in the lower gears. I recently drove a '13 KIA Soul for a weekend (rental) and it paled in comparison to the Fit in every other category but the transmission.
Pros The 09 sport model looks sporty, interior is big.
Cons The car has loud and annoying interior wind noise. Transmission has rattling noise. The car's gas mileage is worse than advertised. I often get 24 mpg or less on surface street driving.
Summary The car has loud interior wind blowing noise. The noise happens from 30 mph and up. During highway driving, it is so loud that it louder than the music from the radio. I went to the DCH Honda dealership in Gardena, CA for 4 times, but they refuse to repair it. They deny that there is a problem with the car. Also there is rattling noise from the transmission. But they refuse to fix this too. Very bad customer service. I had to waste a great deal of my time. The representative from the Honda company also will not help. These people will deny problems the vehicle has, and will not honor the vehicle's warranty.
The car's gas mileage is worse than advertised. I often get 24 mpg or less on surface street driving. And I am very easy on the gas pedal.
