2007 Honda Fit Sport: Pound for pound, the most practical car in our fleet
January 02, 2007
Laundry and a major cleanup project in my apartment took up much of the holiday weekend. Mundane stuff, sure, but my days weren't at all unpleasant and our Honda Fit had a lot to do with that. With few exceptions, this is the perfect city car for me. Not only does it fit anywhere I care to park it, it has rear seats that can fold down or up -- and this makes all the difference...
I love the fact that the seats fold up (like in a pickup) and I left them in that position all weekend. This setup provided a more secure hold for transporting bags of laundry (which tend to topple over when seats are folded down). It was also useful for hauling sorted bags of plastics and paper to the recycling plant.
The fact the Fit is fun to drive only adds to its appeal, because I continued to take corners with gusto while running my errands -- can't do that in a Yaris or Versa. Plus, this is probably the only Honda that's legitimately cute and it gets the occasional compliment on the basis of cuteness alone, which would save me the trouble of buying a dog.
