With so much technology in cars nowadays, most modern recalls revolve around software bugs and module updates. Not the 2013 Fit though -- it's going old school with driveshaft failure that will disable the car. Very retro, Honda.

Over 1,000 of these cars have serious problems with a weakened right front driveshaft that went through a defective heat treatment process during manufacturing. Honda says the driveshaft will likely break when taking off from a stop. You should be able to tell if it happened because of the horrible noise I imagine it makes. Oh, and the inability to move your car should be a dead giveaway.
