There's a lot of truth to what honda is doing to the dealers. My thoughts are they are trying to force the "little guys" out of business. If they only allow them to get what they can't sell it's hard for them to make money. Honda is still moving product so they only are looking at numbers. I seen it coming and pretty much got out. My parents still have the dealership but it has become more of a shoe store than a Honda dealership to keep the lights on. 50 some years and they are trying to starve them out of business..
The bad part is that is when the price gouging comes in. When a product is hard to get, you can get what your asking out of it. Used vehicles are finally starting to come back down but they are still over priced as well. It's been a sellers market.
