I'm from northern Indiana and just purchased the EX AWD in deep ocean pearl today. I LOVE IT. I had originally been thinking of the FIT but test driving the two - it was a no brainer. Everything about it is an upgrade from my last car which was a 2012 Scion iQ. The AWD is going to come in handy this fall. I have to drive a lot of back roads that don't get plowed right away.
