Although new car sales have been surprisingly strong during the pandemic, there has been an alarming
increase in the number of heated (and occasionally violent) confrontations between customers -- usually
young, childless couples -- and car salesmen. Police and social scientists were puzzled by the fact that
virtually all of these occurred at Honda dealerships. It turns out that the customers were trying to buy
an expensive luxury model, but when the salesman checked their income and credit he told them that
they really should have a Fit.
