I'm driving an '08 Fit Sport myself, 5sp manual, works great in everything but the snow and ice (looking to get a Subie Outback or Audi A4 Avant to supplement and also as a spare vehicle), carves corners like cars twice its price tag, and still has a ton of interior room. Love that little car.
I should add we are trading my 07 fit for a 2012 Fit Automatic. Ya the turbo was hard to deal with but I did make money off the deal. I bought it for $8000, drove it for 2 years and sold it for $8500. I think including old changes, insurance, tag and taxes, I had made $100 from the deal. I didn't count for inflation but whatever you get the idea. What is crazy about the MR2 is that it didn't really handle better than my wife's MX-5 or my old Mazdaspeed protege. I guess what they say is right "Don't drive you childhood dream cars. You will be disappointed"

I am not sure he has snow tires. He lives in Missouri. I know I don't
