I avoided any 150 mile transmission rebuilds by buying a Honda.

Well, they swapped me into a 2010, which is doing much better. As for Honda and trannies, take a look at the early 2000 Accords and Odysseys. No one is totally immune. Have always had decent luck with GM cars in the past.

To the first commenter on this review; did you notice how he had the exact same model and had good luck with it? Not EVERY single car a company - Honda, Chevy, Toyota, Ford, NO EXCEPTIONS!! - is perfect. Some will be better; some will be worse.

Props to the guy for sticking with American made cars. As a true American, I cannot bear to look at an import, especially one with an American flag sticker.

LOL American made, guaranteed that the computer screen you're looking at right now or the keyboard your typing into isn't American made. It's nice to be Patriots, but honestly your country imports everything. From the tires on your American car to the cheap plastic interior, everything's imported from another country. Did you know that Motor Trend 2010 car of the year was completely assembled in Mexico.

I'd love to respond with a long comment that tells of all the Americans I know who drive imports that also happen to serve their country in the military, but it wouldn't be posted anyways.

I am the original poster. The 2010 I swapped into has been a decent car, so far. However, I don't see it as a long-term car, so will probably get rid of it after the warranty runs out.

Don't laugh, but I am looking for a well-cared for Ford Escort. I got almost 200,000 trouble free miles out of my 1998. Should have kept it and refurbished it.

80 percent of the cars, including Toyota and Honda, are made in America. At least do your homework.
