Needing a break from Memorial Day binge in the back yard of my sister-in-law's Los Alamitos home, I asked some family friends the favor of test-driving their 2007 Honda Fit. On paper, the Fit looks great--gas mileage, turning radius, small width of 66 inches for my small two-car garage. Then I drove the five-speed manual, so silky smooth I would never get the Fit with the automatic, even in car-congested Los Angeles. The fun factor, tight turning radius, quick response, small size, and the Fit's easy accomodation of my 6-feet 230-pound frame makes me want to sell my 2007 Maxima. The Fit's owner says she does all city driving and gets 30 MPG. She puts 9 gallons in the Fit every 270 miles. I want this Fit in orange blaze and a five-speed for sure.
