It isn't even on sale in the U.S. yet, and Honda Motor Co. is already announcing that will cut sales expectations for the Fit subcompact by as much as 24 percent. The automaker states that unexpectedly high sales of its new Civic (which went on sale last year in Japan, Europe and the U.S.) is forcing the manufacturer to clear more space in its facilities.
Judging by what appears to be quite a bit of interest in the Fit based upon reader feedback and the enthusiastic
reviews from the wider press, it will be fascinating to see how this all shakes out when the model goes on sale in
America later this month.
