    About six months ago I heard there would be more Fits available by
    Spring 07. Seems they are still in short supply. Anybody know when
    we will start seeing more and why there are so few in Northern

    Dunno about that but have you thought about importing one? Here in the UK
    they're called the Honda Jazz, been onsale here since 2003 maybe 2002.

    No I haven't because it's not like they are unavailable here. There
    are some on the road and some dealers in Northern California get them
    in, but because they are relatively rare and in demand there is still
    a premium above the Civics and Accords that are well stocked. I'm
    holding out until they are selling for the MSRP and below. I just
    need to keep my 91 Accord running until then. Or maybe I'll get
    something else.

    One thing I really like about the Fit/Jazz is that the front seats can
    fold down to horizontal for a cat nap mid day. Anybody know of any
    other small economical cars that do that? I don't think the Scion Xa
    has that feature.

    You won't miss that shoe box if it's on the road.

  7. I have been interested in the Honda Fit for months, after having read all of
    the glowing reviews in Consumer Reports, Car and Driver, etc. I have also
    visited four or five dealers in my area in order to see one, and perhaps,
    take a test drive.. Not one dealer I visited ever had any in stock! Well,
    that was the case, until I went to Honda Santa Ana on 3/18/07. They are
    located in Santa Ana, in Orange County, CA and they had five or six IN
    STOCK! I was blown away. And they were selling them close to list price,
    maybe even a little below. I took a test drive, of a Sport model, with
    manual transmission, and I was really impressed. Although I did not buy the
    car I was treated very well by the sales staff, especially by Joe Pepper. I
    should note that the reason I did not buy does not reflect badly on them. I
    had no intention of buying a car today, as I had originally driven to a
    nearby computer store (Micro Center) to pick up an advertised free camera
    memory card, and I decided to stop in at the Honda dealer as a lark. When I
    do buy a Fit, (and I definitely will buy one) I will go back to Honda Santa
    Ana, even though it is about 30 miles from where I live. If anyone in
    southern California reads this, and visits them to purchase, or whatever,
    please mention my name, as I felt that they deserve my recommendation.
    And, in case you are wondering, I don't not work for them, I had never been
    there before 3/18/07 , and I did not know anyone who worked there.

  8. CORRECTION: I meant to say "I don't work for them," not "I don't not work
    for them.:
