I just wanted to say that my Honda fit has been amazing. I use it for delivering pizza at night. I'm currently getting 33 MPG in all in town deliveries. with great performance with a very quick automatic 6 spd trans. Just remember not to load this car down MPG is killed with any extra weight.
6 cup holders and lots of room for such a small car.
Weight is the killer on this car. I put 1 ice chest and 1 passenger and mpg went way down. I think Honda could offer an "ECO" Fit. No ac. No sound system. back seat deletion. 1 wiper in front. back wiper deletion etc. May get 40 mpg in town with more power & performance even with an automatic.
