I own a 2008 Honda Fit, it is only 4 months old and the paint is cracking in a variety of places.The manual transmission is continually jumping out of gear and a myriad of rattles are present throughout the car.I can honestly say this is the biggest pile of junk i have ever owned.I can sum up Honda in one word : G A R B A G E

No. There are a small number of LHD cars on the road in Japan, and they're almost uniformly European or American-made grey-market imports.

NO in order to have a JDM car you have to be right hand drive. you can build a "sorta JDM" car and be jdm on everything except RHD. often honda in the us have different headlights, taillights, floor mats, different guages, different clocks, climate controll, different (usually higher) final drives in the transmissions and lsd differential, higher compression motors, different valve covers (VTEC is bigger than DOHC on jdm motor other way around for US Spec cars). different model numbers on the block to show what region that motor was sold in, different wheels, anything that is acura here is honda over there. there are many things that must be changed on a us honda to make it a JDM car.
