Honda can't keep up production on HR-V or the Fit. Both are comming out of a Mexico plant. As soon a HR-V hits the lot, it's sold. We were going to buy a new Soul, since our old Fit was totaled. My wife not crazy about it boxy looks. It is a very nice vehicle. We bought a new 2015 Fit EX instead. Couldn't find a HR-V anywhere.

I'm shocked by the low popularity of the Fit and the amazing CX-3, in particular. Fiat should bury the 500L in the backyard already.
Fit production issues, in the Mexico plant. Not up to Honda's quality standards.
Aren't any vehicles on the dealers lot to sell. Production on the HRV, is hurting too.

500L needs a fork put in it.

Quite a difference too with the Mazda 2 and the Ford Fiesta and they are both the same frame IIRC. Only 1 Mazda in all of the USA. Cheap gas prices are making a difference in the small car market methinks.

The Chevy Sparks numbers have gone way down.
There's a full-redesign coming for 2016 ... and the new model is a lot better looking. The dealers should be attempting to sell off all of the old models before the new one arrives.

It's not unlike why smart sales were way down through mid-2015.
