Honda Fit Recall

According to Autonews.com the Honda Motor Corporation said it would be recalling over 1-million Honda Fit compact cars due to some defective headlight wiring. The recall encompasses all 143,000 cars that have been exported to the United States, the 385,000 that have been sold across Europe as the Jazz, as well as all cars sold in Asia, the Middle East and Africa. A Honda spokesman stated that the entire cost of the recall would run around $43 billion U.S. dollars, an amount that would have a small impact on Honda’s overall earnings. The good news is that as of yet there have been no accidents and or related incidents due to faulty wiring.

    So are the auto companies going bankrupt because they refuse to produce what we want to buy or because they still haven’t figured out how to build a functioning automobile after 50 years of practice.

      Jeb, that’s a complicated question. The U.S. automakers went bankrupt because they’d amassed a huge amount of inventory by the time credit dried up and 20% of America (including yours truly) lost their jobs. No sales = no income = big trouble for companies used to moving high volumes of product.

      Truth be told, no one builds a bad car anymore, since the market has become far too competitive. Hyundai is building cars every bit as good as Honda or Toyota these days, and even the Detroit big three are scoring high on both initial and long term quality. As for building cars the public wants, I hate to say it only gets worse from here. New CAFE standards require automakers to achieve 39 mpg across their automotive fleet and 35.5 mpg factoring in light trucks. Like it or not, you’re about to have hybrids, compact cars and small turbo motors rammed down your throat. I think 2011, or maybe 2012, will be the end of the glory days for big horsepower.
