The Fit is a small station wagon? NOO! I'm an old man.

Anyway... I've seen pictures of 2-door Honda Fit's in Japan, so hopefully they'll be importing them soon.

Look on the bright side -- you'll be able to make your rear wheel skirts out of faux wood paneling.

I had a 1998, it was rated at 21/26 but was a 4 banger. I guess the extra cylinders killed it. Like always the consumer needs more power

that newspaper doesnt know anything. they skipped the lotus elise, honda insight and seriously what else is in the mini-compact class???

also isnt the hybrid accord the same size as the sonata???? even the non hybrid accord gets a better epa rating than the sonata. they also forgot about the hybrid camry. something is askew in these 'awards'

Odyssey

We had a 120 hp 2.5L 4 cyl caravan. What a dog. Driving dynamics are bad, feels much taller than it is. Real world mileage was right about 21 mixed/26 hwy. Sold it after 3 years.
The 250hp 3.5L V6 Ody is a rip when the VTEC comes on - much safer when passing big trucks uphill in the mountains - but that happens rarely. Handling is much, much better and is alot more satisfying to drive. Real world mileage is just better than 22 mixed/27 hwy so we see alot more power WITH better mileage and better handling. Definitely the winner if you think of a vehicle as more than just an appliance.
If I had my druthers though they shoud've had a VTEC-E version of the V6 or even a large VTEC-E 4 cyl. For daily driving I think it is overpowered. We've used maximum engine output maybe a few times in the 3 years we've had this one. We plan on keeping it until 250,000miles. It's great. 60k on it now.
