    I like the Honda Fit for its intelligent design, but its mileage and ride are a little lacking.

    The Ford Focus has an automatic transmission that I don't trust, but otherwise a great car both for driving, mileage and storage.

    What else should I be looking at?

    @curt, the Ford Festiva is more of a comp to the Honda Fit than the Ford Focus, so give that a look, too. On the GM side, the new Cruze is nice if a sedan works for you, and check out the new Sonic when it hits your dealer.

    In terms of bang for the buck, though, it's hard to beat Hyundai these days. Test drive a 2012 Accent or Elantra and you'll see what I mean.
