2009 Honda Fit from North America
One of the best I've owned
So far, I've had nothing go wrong with the car. We paid for a base model, so it was $15,000. The comfort level is not the best. For long drives of over an hour, it gets a bit tedious. And creature comforts are minimal; cup holders awkward, no middle arm rests etc.
However, in 10,000 miles we've averaged 39.7 mpg in small town rural driving. We bought it for economy and it has more than fulfilled our hopes, and I'd buy another in a minute.
For the money, it's a tremendous deal, and with Honda's reliability and support (we had a transmission blow on our Odyssey and they chipped in for almost half the cost of the repair), we're very happy with it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

OMG, you think you got a deal by Honda paying for half the cost of the new engine? The engines are on recall. I don't know if there is a public American data base for national recalls, but the Canadian Transport Department keeps an excellent one. The Honda's have a lot of recalls (even recent!) more than the Fords. I was shocked. Anyway your van has like 10 recalls, and most are related to engine / power train. You probably should have gotten a new engine for free.
