Alright boys and girls. Now that some of us are considering some of these sub-compact cars as our daily drivers, lets see who likes what and why. I personally have to downsize and move to an econobox for a short while, until my business takes off. I was seriously considering the VW rabbit, however its "OK" mileage is enough to cause me to remove it from the runnings. my choices have now been run down to the Honda Fit Sport ( with those HFP 16" wheels, its not too bad looking! ) and the Nissan Versa SL ( i'd get the sport package if it was available, but alas it isnt yet ) Now obviously my favorite thing about the Versa is the fact that it is based off of a Renault design, which is why it recieved a 6SPD manual (OMG) however, renault trannys are ( as far as ive been able to gather, since im american ) somewhat notchy, and not very smooth. coupled with the fact that the versa has some kind of electronic steering, I'm fearing it may become numb under heavy cornering ( which i love to do all day long ) now the fit, i have heard the fit's manual is smooth as butter, and it seems to out-rank everything else in this class. Are there any owners of either car on the board? If so, tell us some of your experiences with them, your likes, your dislikes. the key point for me in this purchase, is a good tranny, decent handling ( and adequate cargo space ) This isn't going to be a long-term car, but one that will be easy on my limited budget for now.
