Bought the FIT for fuel economy and thought about long trips. Gas mileage is great, around town driving is wonderful,and turning is amazing to get into some of those parking spaces. Love the Aux input for the iPod/MP3. Freeway driving is loud and acceleration for on ramps is a lesson in patience and a little terrifying. Feel like I should get out and push. Wish we had held out for the manual but they were selling fast. And, what were they thinking about with some of the cupholders? The most convenient ones are in front of the vents. And, that space behind the cupholders on the gear shift stand.
Gas mileage: currently averaging 39+, Aux input, rear seat alternatives; Honda name for reliability.
Move the passenger door armrest up a little. Awkward height. Better fabric in the interior; offer a bigger engine option to improve acceleration for on ramps and highway driveway. Go back to the drawing board on the cupholders.
