[QUOTE]\nNo, I paid ,700 for the CIVIC LX, not the DX, not the Fit.\nYou overpaid. That's okay, just learn from it and next time you buy a\ncar, do some homework and don't let the dealer gouge you. You'll feel\nbetter about it.[/QUOTE]\n\nHe did overpay, but I also wanted the Fit more than the LX. For two\nreasons, first, the handling is great. Second, the body style fits my\nlife better. I don't haul around passengers often but I do sometimes\nneed the space to put bikes and such. I was willing to pay the list\nprice for the Fit, which was not very different from the "more\nexpensive" Civic, but not more.\n\nOddly, the estimated gas mileage wasn't much better than the Civic\nalthough the hp was less. Both were very good though so it wasn't a\nconsideration.\n\nMaybe next year, if my 91 Accord ever gives out.
