<<This is when we test drive a car, not when it's warm and sunny out. We do have six months of winter.>>

Hate to break this to you, but it is the WORST way to test drive a car. At the VERY least the tires are cold and are NOT operating normally, so you are NOT able to effectively judge how the car operates under normal conditions.

I lived in horrible weather for decades and still never test drove a car under such conditions because it was NOT indicative of how the car normally operates.

Sorry, but the Fit is a wildly fun car to drive and has amazing handling. It is also smaller and nimbler than any Ferrari so it is not surprising it would beat one in a slalom test.
