Default Will Honda up production of its FIT? Why is production so low? Don't they see the demand?...

Honda is being brilliant about the production of the Fit. If they keep supply low and demand high they can command a premium price for the vehicle. Honda is not only in the business of making cars, they are in the business of making money!If you go to your local Honda dealer you can expect to pay sticker price for a Fit. It is very rare that any kind of discount is given on these cars!

Honda has a rare commitment to quality that you do not find in the auto industry these days. With that in mind the word in the industry is--Honda over estimated the demand for the 2002 Civic SI with the euro type styling and with the Fit being similar in shape the Honda Corp did not contract with their suppliers for a huge amount of parts to build the vehicles. They were going with an initial release of about 100,000 units. The demand has been approximately 3.5 times the production or roughly 350,000 customers looking for these vehicles. Honda could be like every other automaker and ask their suppliers to ramp up production to meet the increased demand but you will then sacrifice quality and Honda is understandably reluctant to do that.Honda has done their math homework and they understand the demand and rest assured with the 2008 model year you can expect a much more plentiful inventory at almost every dealership.Our dealership has 8 or 10 of these vehicles on order and scheduled to be in stock over the next 6-8 weeks.Hang in there there will be more.

Whenever Honda rolls out a new product (not a redesign of an old one) they put it out first in limited production. Depending on a myriad of factors (demand, competition, etc) they may or may not take the vehicle out of limited production. We will have to just wait and see what happens.
