Consumer Reports, the car-buying Bible for normal people who don't read this website and aren't considering a first generation Miata as their next purchase, has once again burned Honda. This time the Fit is the target. Uh-oh.
The magazine says that in the wake of a poor crash test, the Honda Fit is no longer a Recommended vehicle. The Fit bombed the small-overlap front-crash test, and it wasn't the only small car to do so; of the 11 subcompacts tested, only the Chevrolet Spark was considered adequate in the tough test.
