Rent one first for a good test drive.

2010 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5A)
Had this car for 11 months and traded it in for a civic,more seat space and better mpg and still fun to drive. My complain is that the car could use some more power and lesser rpm at cruise speed, a 6 gear would be nice and better for overall mpg. I'm 6'2 and the seat can't go far enough back to get comfortable. Ok the versatile seats are handy but therefor we still have a Mazda5 who drives very good! Maybe the hybrid version will get some more owners with at least 50 mpg, get 42 average with my civic coupe, with use of ac in summer.would be nice if you can rent one for a day and make a good test drive instead of around the car lot, saves you a lot of headache and money.
The panorama view and the versatile seats less maintenance intervals with synthetic oil,every 15.000 miles instead of 7500. Easy to park in small spots,and easy in the city. Low owners cost and good value in the long run, reliable, most important for me, therefore i stick with Honda.
Front legroom, better mpg, lesser noise cabin, paint chips easily. More power, maybe like VW with the new small tsi 1.4 motor. 180 hp and still approved in California.
