I bought a 2004 civic vp, regrettably traded that in for a family sized wagon, and now just got a 2011 fit for myself.
I've only had it about 800 miles, but absolutely love it.
The interior is deceptively huge.
The rear seats fold in 2 ways that give alot of space for most things you can think of.
The only improvements I can suggest is a bigger engine.
I beleive I had a 1.8 in my civic, and in this Fit, there is a 1.5.
The gas mileage is somehow not as good, maybe because the engine has to work harder for power?
I think the car looks pretty cool too from the outside, but I have heard other people think its ugly.
Wait until you have 30,000 miles on it and see how you like it. More safety recalls than any other model in 3 years. These were all ones that start FIRES!
Worst Honda yet and Edmunds should be ashamed for positive review.
Btw - Honda sales are tanking!
