I think Hondas are great, but over-rated. When I raced my (then) stock Sentra against a stock Civic of the same spec and trim in a top-out highway run, we came out dead even... even though his engine was rated at 5-10 hp over mine.

Most people think the Honda is a better/faster car because of the "Fast and the Furious" syndrome... they look hip, therefore, they MUST be.

I don't hate hondas. I respect them. I've driven a couple, and they're pretty good... but I love my nissan. :)

Anyone and everyone can be "stereotyped". By going out of your way to voice your opinion about how much you hate honda's only makes you Another "honda hater" You'll never here me say I hate all Nissans, or even "all" any car for that matter. Some cars I like some I don't, to each his own.
~Just let me say this beforehand. i am not racisist or anything "ist" but sometimes certain people take things too far.
My main problem here in phoenix, az a.k.a Mexico II is the way that certain people combine the mexican way of modifying a car with the "import" way and the result is the STUPIDEST looking vehicles ever to hit the streets. By far, in the last 6 months of living here in PHX I have seen THE most of these examples ever! how about a red 89 Civic with a bondo'd on body kit that looked like it was stolen off of a Neon that was green, with 14" gold Dayton replicas sticking 8 inches out of the wheelwells(fucking up the bearings beyond belief), the letters L A J O L L A in old english stickers accross the back window, one of those 80's limo V antenea's on the trunk(dont ask how it was attached), sparkly rainbow window tint, a huge dent in the passenger door(hey a new free mod:D), with guy inside telling me how he doesn't need to lear how to speak better english, and that I need to learn spanish, because they are taking over and soon all "americans" will speak spanish.....etc....etc.... I have seen numerous accounts of all of these everyday on many cars, from hondas, to nissans, to neons, to cavaliers, anything they can get their hands on. And how are all these fancy mods payed for you ask? well for starters not paying car insurance is a good way to save money, also, claiming every one of your family members(cousins included) as dependants on your tax return form helps out too, even if you are only making $5 an hour. I'll stop now but I could go on forever. Don't take this as talking shit cause it's all facts based on what i have experience in the short time that i have been here as an Arizona resident.

ps. On January 1st 2004 I am going to the border with a truck load of bricks and bags of cement, if enough of you join me, we can take care of this once and for all, since our wonderfull gov't cant seem to keep their eyes open. We're going to rebuild the Berlin Wall, USA style baby!

REAL Honda racers get tired of defending themselves against the riceboy/street racer/fast and the furious comments thrown at them. If you hate Honda, good for you! Keep it to yourself. REAL racers get along with each other, whether they're Honda or Nissan guys.
I think this signature that kotomile has pretty much says it all

Can't I hate Hondas with out people bitching at me for starting it????

I will never respect them...I know it's 50% car and 50% driver, but in the Honda it's 100% car and the driver better be hot shit...or else they're not worth it (so they think, hehehehehe)...I can't believe a lot of people think my ride is a piece of shit...she's not looking like much, but she's got it where it counts!

i think after all the honda bashing, we still have to admit one thing:

the import scene woud not be as hot if it werent for honda and to some extent, mistubishi...

i think honda and mitsu has some hand in the existence of the SVT focuses, the specs, the mini coopers, the srt-4s, the mazdaspeed proteges, the wrxs, and the wide wide availability of aftermarket support NOW for anything on 4 wheels w/ a compact sports car image..... i never had the idea when i signed the papers for my 12K sentra w/ manual rolldown windows that there woud ever be a bolt-on turbo for my car.... thanks hotshot, and in part honda/mitsu....

heck, no matter how you cut it, boys, that's a sad fact.

still, the fascination of car manufacturers with compact power per se can be traced to toyotas and subarus... and before that, my personal fave, the Lancia Delta Integrale... the ORIGINAL Evolution!

Don't hate on something just because you love Nissans,.. pity them because they don't know what the hell they're missing... :D :D :D
