    I have a 2015 Dodge Durango. Mine is a sportier edition and isn't 4WD but it get 22-24 mpg around town. I don't haul a lot anymore but when our youngest daughter and her family (her husband, who is a big guy, our 6 year old grandson and our, at that time, 1 month old grandson) came down we all fit very comfortably- in fact I had her husband fit test the far back seat and he said it wasn't cramped at all. With the seats laid flat we can haul goodies from Ikea with no issue.

    Congrats with the Fit. As already pointed out, the airbag recall really should not cost you anything. This is a very high profile, global issue impacting multiple car brands.

    Happy Trails!

    I LOVE IT! Quiet, smooth, peppy, roomy, super-kind on the gas budget, and I haven't hit the plasticky stuff yet, though I am sure I will at some point. Need to replace the wiper blades, and I'm looking for new tires. The title was changed to rebuilt, and the accident was a tailgate that just messed up the bumper, really, which was replaced, so I'm hoping the airbag thing will be no prob. Will probably replace the battery before the end of the year. We don't get a lot of snow, and I tend to stay put in front of the wood stove when it does snow as no one else around here seems to know how to drive in it. So nice to plug in the satellite radio or iPod and have tunes! Very pleased so far. And holy moley, when you put those back seats down! I call her, The Little Skunk.

    So, yesterday this happened. Kid took someone else's advice that the lane was clear for him to make a left turn. Physics says otherwise. I was there. Fit no more.... Will find another. Only had it three months. :(
    Sore but no one injured. Side curtain did its thing. His fault, his insurance pays. So all is good. Except for the Fit.

    Glad no one was hurt. Must be something in the air this week. I got side-swiped also; not as bad as your vehicle...

    I don't know how long before the insurance companies figure it out. Very disappointed, but maybe something better is going to come along. Hope, hope!
