Bob, no one was mean in the least. No one told him that the Fit sucks and he's any less of a person for wanting to get his money back. No one disagreed with him. two people suggested he hold onto the deposit until the car becomes available "just in case"... no harm in that... I did that... I was going to cancel my reservation a few times but thought "I'll just let the $99 stay there until the last minute and make my decision then... Luckily I did because I hadn't had to make a car decision before my smart arrived. Sure, smokey had to get a car now, but a lot can happen in 1.5 years... maybe by then smart will have an all electric version available... or something else that will appeal to smokey... no harm in suggesting he maybe would want to hold onto the reservation until that point...
Look, the Yaris is a fine car, we're all very happy for you. I almost bought one even.... The Fit is a fine car, and we wish smokey well... I almost bought one of those, as well.... the smart is a fine car.
All three have unique abilities, aimed at a similar goal... economy. There's no bad decision.
It's funny how much you complain about the negativity on this site, but you seem to be one of the prime creators. just an observation.
