Go with the Honda Fit
By tangog on
2011 Ford Fiesta SES 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
I am looking for a commuting car that can eventually be a hand-me-down.
I just test drove both the fiesta and the honda fit with my 13 year old son - manual trans for both as I think it is needed on these small cars.
After looking at the write-ups that made the fiesta sound great, I thought I would put it to the test.
my son and I both thought the fit sport won hands down based on driving impressions and comfort.
the fiesta needed to be jump started and smelled afterwards like clutch and brake - could be new car break in, definitely not me because I drive awesome - ha.
At 5,000 rpm, it felt like it was going to blow.
For die hard ford fans consider the focus - rebates are attractive.
