The only surprise I see on there is the new Civic being so low. Honda's sales could be a lot better all over if they stopped their dealers from gouging so much, and upped production on their more popular models. I think the Fit is still being imported and capped by production. So the damn Yaris is having a field day.

My friend and I went to a Honda dealer last week looking for an early 2000's Civic or something under 10k. They treated us like we weren't worth the time. <_<

Fit is getting spanked by the Versa. no wonder. the Versa looks nice.

The reason the Civic is not selling is because the early honda adopters already got theirs now. Why anyone would buy a Civic over a Mazda 3 only confirms to me how stoned most people are.

Good point, the 3 is better in every way...styling, handling, interior design.

The Versa and Fit look very similar, I don't see how you can think one looks nice and the other doesn't :blink:

Ouch. Guess it's not good that the Accord and Civic sales decided to plummet for this month?

I can't believe the RSX outsells the RL and they cancel it, to move the brand upscale.

Who thinks the RL sales will be in the 900's next month? MEEEE!

Acura just announced pricing for the new 2007 TL and the 2007 RL. The RL now has a base price of $45,780.00 and the base model excludes Navigation and adaptive front lighting compared to last year. Those prices are effective today.

Does it still have the screen in the interior or did it get taken out if you don't get NAV?
