After my auto accident in 2007, I needed a vehicle easy to get in and out of. The Honda Fit was just the right height. I didn't have to climb in or out, just sit and twist my legs in and out. I love the folding rear seats. I am single and have to tote groceries, landscaping supplies for my yard, mulch and soil. Even the salesmen couldn't believe I got so much in my little car! They were impressed.
Plenty of room; adaptability of interior for various uses; plenty of airbags. No mechanical repairs yet and I have over 30000 mi. Time for scheduled maintenance though.
A little noisy on the highway; wipers on front need more ranges of speed; back wiper needs to be intermittent; prefer remote unlock/lock; need floor mats -- at least for the front.
