"Yea, it took me some time to get use to the center gages...but the savings in $$ and not needing the more room of the Fit made me get the Yaris...as for quality, durability, either are great. For me it's just a get to work car...although these days I bike it in more often then not."
You have not purchased gas since 4/1, you must be using the bike alot?
I prefer the center guage in my Yaris hatchback. Most of my mileage is also getting to and from work. A great car for mileage.

I believe if you get the optional air bag and abs package, the Yaris also becomes "five star" safety.

One of the major Automotive magazines had a shoot out between the Fit, Yaris, and the Versa, and the Yaris had the best acceleration, MPG, and 1/4 mile. None of these cars are race cars, so they all were slow. I wish I could remember the magazine name, but if you sniff around on the internet you'll find it. Also, the Yaris was the cheapest for comparible features. The Versa was the biggest in regard to space, but got the worse MPG.

Welcome jkandell! I found that most of the recent honda's seem to suffer from high RPM's at highway speeds. That damn VTEC is useless for economy. Anyway, welcome and enjoy! I've greatly enjoyed the company and info here!

I think that's a big reason why it's Honda's #1 world bestseller. Biggest utility for the buck.

Sorry to hear that. I keep wanting to pull the trigger on a Pontiac Vibe (same drivetrain), but I keep hearing bad stuff about the MPG.

i did spend about 20-30min on google and i found nothing that said the yaris was faster if the fit had a manual transmission so naturally i would like to see the source of this information. sure they are not race cars, but you can race street cars. there is a class for all of these cars: h stock.

if you are going to compare the fit to the yaris doing in the appropriate thread. not in the thread where we have a new member introducing himself as a fit driver.

You may be thinking of the May 2006 Car and Driver article (link is a pdf from Honda). The Fit had the best 0-30, 0-60, and ? mile time; the Yaris had the best rolling 5-60 time and the highest ? mile final speed, as well as the best mileage, by 1mpg in the C&D test. The Versa does have the biggest cargo area, but it's not flat, and the hatch is narrow.

I wonder if I've seen you driving around, I always get a little jealous when I see a Fit here in town. It doesn't seem like there are too many here in Tucson. I really wanted to get one, but I was able to get a much better deal on a Yaris. These small cars are great for Tucson driving, I only go on the freeway once every few months when I take a trip to Phoenix, other than that it's all city driving so a small car with great mileage is great to have.
