Advice: DON'TI replaced a 1986 Honda Civic Si with a Fit Sport automatic and am quite disappointed. My Si's driving position was more comfortable, the ride was not nearly so choppy, and, though not exactly a ball of lightening, would absolutly run rings around the Fit. Amazingly, the Si's fuel economy was even superior to that of the Fit. It's truly a shame that Honda did not see 'fit' to install the Civic's 1.8 litre engine into the new Fit as I believe that such an edition would have cured many of this car's unfortunate shortcomings.
