    so, this is it. The Fit comes home tomorrow. I actually might get an AT... i'm thinking about it since it WOULD be my daily driver... but... I dunno. What do you guys think?

    Unfortunately, honda makes very mushy and unspirited ATs. Thats the one area where honda fails at car making.

    MT will give you better gas mileage too. And more power to the wheels.

    P.S. If I may, and I know you have car fever bad.. Dont purchase a brand new car. instead, save your cash up and buy one when they are 2 years old. Pay cash and save yourself a bundle. Why take that giant punch to the wallet for driving a brand spankin new car off the lot? You will saddle yourself with car payments for the next several years.

    That being said, if you are debt free and are paying cash for the thing.. you can Ignore the above comment.

    ok, well, here's the REAL problem now. I went ALL over CA searching inventories, calling them, etc. NO ONE IN CA has a Fit (Sport) with MT. Swear to God. And I can't order this car... I need it today. Teg died. :(

    Sorry for the double post first off... but... I'm not paying for it. This is a birthday present from my boyfriend's mother. she wants to help me out by paying the down, and I have responsibility of paying the insurance only. She said that she wanted me to get a safer car for my kids and things. I agree with her. Now that teggie is dead I need to get one now, and I'm not going to BMW like she originally offered. Or even getting an Acura. I just want a little Fit. lol

    damn that sucks... i think AT is much better for Daily Driving like I said earlier but since your teg died you don't have both worlds anymore :(

    I will... teg died at the shop... so, now, the motor gets torn apart, rebuilt from ground up, and turbo goes in. biiiiig one. lol so this season i'll be driving the CRX or the teg depending on how fast we can get it done.... but, it was weird how it all happened. been looking for a new car for a while, but now it just needs to get done. That's why I don't think I'd care about the AT... I'd be in traffic a lot when I go to pick up my kids... or just toodling around. I can bring the Civic Si out if I want to go romp around. I think it might be time to get lazy.

    you want safe, go to VW and get a Rabbit :) and don't listen to people when they say VW's suck because they are just as reliable as a honda when taken care of, trust me, I had a Golf.

    too expensive. i'm not trying to milk the woman for all she's worth. and maybe since having my beetle i'm a little anti-vw? i dunno. lol i was just kinda meaning safer than the teg. LATCH system, airbags... things that will help me in a crash rather than just plain not exist in my car. :p

    The Fit Starts @ 13,800 the Rabbit starts @ 15k... only 1200 more for a car that is safer than the Fit (not saying the fit isn't safe) and you can find it easy (probably even today :p lol) in MT
