Honda Motor Co and the IIHS said Thursday, the first 12,000 U.S. customers who bought the 2015 Honda Fit subcompact cars will be asked to have the vehicles retrofitted to attain top marks from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Chuck Thomas, chief engineer for vehicle safety at American Honda, said, the action – which is not a safety recall aligned with U.S. safety regulators – is aimed at allowing all 2015 Fit cars to have the same, more robust front bumpers as cars made after June 9, when Honda changed the way they were produced.
