Default Honda Fit not available for order

Well, not only can I not look at or test drive a Fit, but now the dealers in my area are no longer
taking orders for the Fit. Nice.

You may be happy with the Mazda 3 or it's earlier design the Protege 5.
Check cars .com for Pro5's from 02 and 03 for sale in your area. Wife
LOVES her yellow 5 speed, and on trips we get right close to 40 m.p.g.

This is typical for a popular new Honda (I think Honda doesn't always
know how popular a new car will be). When I was in college long ago,
and the Accord first came out, one of my teachers had to order one from
a dealer in a small town 150 miles away, since there were none to be
had locally (San Diego).

Now I'm in Loveland, Colorado, and I just heard that a FOAF had to go
to Kansas City to buy a new Fit.

Frankly, I think it's worth the wait, rather than buying some other
brand.

I see the 2007 Mazda3 hatchback now comes with a Mazdaspeed turbocharger. 230 horsepower for a
little car like that is mindblowing. I wonder if I'll be able to test drive it or is Mazda going to
pull a Honda bullshit move of advertising something that's not available.

It's not worth the wait for me because in my area, there's nothing to wait for even though there are
3 Honda dealers here. They're not taking any more orders for the rest of the year. Either Honda
already sold out this year's production, or there's a recall, or they've stopped production, I have
no idea. I'll I'm being told is that they're not available. It's a truely unique experience to go
to 3 car dealers who won't even try to sell you a car. hahahahahahahaha

I've been looking to see one on the road here in Los Angeles, and I
think I finally saw my first the other day, looks like a Focus and a
Matrix had a love-child. Wasn't there a funky little Civic micro-van
about twenty years ago?

My Accord lease expires in a few months, and I've been looking at the
smaller models ... though I expect to end up with another Accord, ugly
LED taillights and all, unless I run off the reservation and get my
hands on a Toyota.

It does seem a slow introduction for the Fit, but it took quite a
while before the new Civics were common on the street, as they are
now. Selling like hotcakes, apparently. Are the sales targets for
the Fit as high as for the Civic? Probably not.

Seems like a pretty stupid thing for Honda to do. It's like they're deliberately trying to drive
people to the competition. Seems like everybody is coming out with subcompact 5 door cars right
now. I have no problem getting one from Chevy, Ford, Mazda, Hyundai, Saturn, Toyota, Volkswagen...
And if the Fit is selling like hotcakes like you say, why have I not seen a single one on the road
yet? Looks like a big hoax to me.

Every business has the right to refuse service to people, if they wish.
Perhaps you've made a 'name' for yourself in your area.
