i absolutely love my wife's 08 fit sport. fun, "peppy", great handling, great fuel economy (for todays' cars) UNBELIEVEABLE amount of storage.. 71k miles and no major issues, just the few little recalls. it is absolutely a great car, hands-down..
good luck in your search.. i have a feeling that we will have our fit until it becomes a classic and then beyond..
Certainly something to be said about the convenience of a modern ride as a DD. My only concern about the Fit was it's ability to get up hills since they are rather steep on either side of me. But, we'll always have the wife's car for those trips.
Figured having some j-tin (as I've learned it's called around here) would allow me to be without a car payment for the first time in my life. Then I could focus that money toward fun parts for all 3 of the old cars.
