I really like the Fit, I used to see it in HongKong before it's US release and always wanted one, but I currently drive a Matrix which is too close in design to warrant the change

All of those have 4 doors. Consumer Reports must be ran by either A.) Elderly or B.) Mothers.

I can't stand 4 door sedans. Yuck.

I agree. I do not get the influx of four door cars. It's hard to find a nice affordable coupe any more.
