Doesn't the Fit have a solid rear axle?
It appears that the rear camber on the left rear wheel is out on the Negative side (Negative Camber) as I view it from the rear of the vehicle. Is there an adjustment on it and how would I do it? It is still under warranty. Would this be covered under 3/36 or is it my responsibility to fix? The right rear looks OK.

Just don't mention that curb you hit.
Old thread, I know. By now they told him, "no, we can't help you, because a bent control arm is not a warranty issue"...
Who am I kidding. They told him, sure, we'll fix it for you under warranty, all it costs us is the part plus 0.2 for the tech!

I suppose this is an old one, but the Fit uses a dead axle - no adjustments, and to screw up the camber it would have to be bent, while to bring it into spec you'd have to replace the axle. I have to say, even after 25 years of doing wheel alignments, I wouldn't rely on my own eyes to judge whether camber is in spec or not.
I imagine you had it measured and it was ok. There are plenty of cars on the road roll off the assembly line with 1 to 2 degrees of negative camber on the back, which helps with cornering and doesn't usually cause excessive tire wear.
