2000 Honda Civic EX-G 1.6 SOHC from North America
Epic car, everything I ever wanted
Oil pan, exhaust, fuel and brake lines rusted out.
I own a 2000 Civic EX-G 5 speed with 365000 km (225k miles).
Love everything about it, and it's everything I could ever want in a car, but it saddens me seeing that rust is getting to it (leaks oil and gas). Manoeuvrability, visibility, fit and finish and economy are top notch. I think when I have the money to replace it, I will go with a 2013 Honda Fit Sport, as it appears to be the last modern day Honda with true Honda DNA.
Oh and my tape player is epic.

The 2013 Honda is a good choice. Now that the Fit is built down in Mexico, it is having a few teething problems at the Mexican plant down there. But look for more cars to be built down there. Mexican wages including benefits are 129 pesos per hour, which is $8.00 per hour. Compare that with $58.00 per hour in Detroit with benefits, and $38.00 per hour with benefits at the VW plant down south in the USA.

That makes sense, and you raise a good point.
But as I notice, it looks like all 2012-2014 Honda Fits sold in Canada were made in China...
I test drove a 2014 Fit Sport made in China... and the transmission was shifting strangely and it had rust specks forming all over the hood... at 14,000 km.
