I agree with you 100%, my post was meant for edkwon as he appears to have missed that part of your original post.i'll explain why I did this. We all love cars here, and we all think we know alot about them. So the car that we hand picked ourselves and chose to spend a large amount of money on, will always be 'the best' and 'awesome'.
whats your favorite subcompact? my parents are looking to buy one cheap for shopping and city duties...i want them to get a Fit, but i think they are siding with the Versa. I assume the Kia Rio sucks, but if its decent it might be up for consideration since its so cheap.I guess I should post what I've actually driven to make things easier with no guessing. All of these are new other than the exceptions I mark off.
Subcompact: Hyundai Accent, Chevrolet Aveo/Pontiac Wave/Suzuki Swift +, Nissan Versa, Toyota Yaris, Honda Fit, Kia Rio
The Fit is IMO the best of the lot, I actually enjoyed driving the Fit and thought it was quite fun...better than the Civic dare I say. One of the things about the Fit is it is quite expensive for a car in this class, but your getting a nicer styled interior and better materials. Power in the Fit is well suited to city driving, a little bit slow for the high speed freeway driving. Handling is one of this car's best points making it very fun, my primary reason for putting this above all else. Short term reliability...all of our Fits run extremely well with no issues. If you have the money, the Fit is no doubt my choice all things considered, aside from its high initial cost its running costs are low.whats your favorite subcompact? my parents are looking to buy one cheap for shopping and city duties...i want them to get a Fit, but i think they are siding with the Versa.

It'd be sufficient if they all stay in the one thread.should we keep our "own reviews" in one thread or create a new thread for each one ala the excellent merc review?

If you review a particularly interesting car like that S-Class thread or like a supercar or something - maybe best have a thread of its own. And if you post lots of videos and pics; likewise.
Otherwise - meh, go nuts Just my 2C
In more than a year I've had it now, I never had to experience a single problem, which would cause me to interrupt or abandon a journey. And this is, in my opinion, one of the most important things a car should do.
