This is Sweden, where I guess Honda never have done good but it's getting really bad.

A long-time Honda dealer sold their business two years ago, to a new owner that wanted to place their bet on Honda, today I stopped by and over 70% of the cars on the floor were BMWs, whatta f? Apparently the Hondas were just sitting there so they had to find another brand to sell to put food on the table for their families.

Hmm... sad.

Then again, I know for example Finland,Denmark, UK (I think) and even en Germany Honda is doing better.

Not doing any better in Australia! "Year to date" up to January had Honda in 12th place behind Suzuki, and about to be overtaken by Audi. It did not have a single model in the top twenty, hasn't had all year. :(

The new Civic has just been released over here, it will be interesting to see if it does anything to help arrest the slide!
