I have a 2007 Honda Fit that is reliable and hauls everything I need. But my wife is making me trade it in since it is a manual............. only 65,000 miles on it. I am not very happy about it.

I also had a flawless 1993 Toyota MR2 Turbo that she made me sell not too long ago. Not happy about that either.


But, I am about to get my Wife's 2009 Mazda MX-5(miata) when I trade in my 07 Honda Fit. So I guess it isn't too bad.

An MX-5 for a Fit? It is a bit of an upgrade in the fun and looks department, but a definite downgrade in the space department. Losing both the Fit and the MR2 to the same lady... I do not wish to impugn her honor, but she'd have to perform something amazing in the bedroom to get me to sell off a turbo MR2 and a Fit.

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.

What snow tires do you have? A car not being good in the snow is typically just because the answer to that question is "I dont"

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

Not flashy, but practical and lots of space.

When I was looking at cars before my jeep I was considering a cutlass, with a 307, but if the right deal came along. I would have done the 460
