hehe...

The S and the base model get the same MPG. For the Fit I chose the S b/c it will have a better long term value if I ever need to trade it in, and because I wanted the allow wheels

Oh, it has a weird little lip/sideskirt too, so I imagine it has to help with MPG to the skilled.

And because it looks so much better, IMHO. I was concerned that the alloy wheels/tires had a wider patch and larger diameter, which would decrease FE, but the data is still out. But, of the new Hondas, it's the best value and has potential. I've said myself, I'd get a Fit, or a used Civic gasser for the price. If I had a pile of cash in the pantry, I'd go for the HCH -- but it's too expensive. There's nothing wrong with your decision Matt -- new car reliability, better emissions, and standard safety features make it a no-brainer.

I don't think that you will have any problems selling it for 2K. Advertise it for $2,5000 in ksl.com and be sure to note that it has a new engine and paint job.

If you run an ad there, Craigslist, and the Salt Lake Tribune over a weekend, you will easily get $2,500 by the end of the weekend.
