I drive a Mazda3 Sport, got it a month ago. It has more hp than the Civic. For the few thousand dollars in savings for the Fit, is it worth it to have a smaller car and less hp?? Another reason I got the Mazda was that it is a hatchback, lots of cargo room!
Also, the Mazda3 received lots of good reviews everywhere. Oh and here is a Civic vs. Mazda3 comparison from Edmunds. http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do...ticleId=108601
