Stiff brakes on 2012 Fit

We are experiencing very cold weather (-40 to -47 celcius). Iím finding my brakes are very stiff and donít work after the car is sitting outside during work hours. Brakes work fine if car is warmed up for 15 minutes or so. Is this a Fit defect/recall or am I just the lucky one?

When was your brake fluid last flushed? If there's lots of water in your brake system it could possibly be freezing up a bit. The DOT3/4 has a freezing point below what you've stated, but it does get thicker around those temps.
