I don't think blaming your car's problems on your country is a good idea. Try finding exactly where it was manufactured. Like the above statements, it's manufactured either in Ohio or Japan.. so if it was made in Japan and not in the U.S.A you have just added to the stereo type that american made is bad when in fact it is not.

My father ran a massive company, had all Dodge trucks, we ran those vehicles into the ground and beat them up. Every Dodge he had was excellent.

Now I have friends that own Hondas and Toyotas, and they are great most of the time, but there are some cons to every pro that can be mentioned as well as any car.. so please don't add to this stereotype that American made is bad when in fact each car has its problems. Not every car off of any assembly line, regardless of where it is from, is going to be 100% perfect. It should be for the price we pay for new or even used Hondas (it's outrageous how they hold their value so well, but they have so many problems) but sadly not every car is going to be manufactured tight.

I agree with the original poster. I have owned Japanese made Honda's and American made ones. The American assembled cars are junk in comparison to their Japanese counterparts. When you shop for a Honda make sure the VIN starts with a J.

Accords are manufactured in three countries, Japan, Britain and the USA. It's very easy to tell where the car was manufactured as they are all different. All Accords in the US are Ohio built, European sedans are British, while the coupes come from Ohio, and Japanese JDM cars are Japanese built. In the UK and Europe, the British built sedans are considered far better than the American built coupes. The Ohio built cars aren't bad per se, but suffer faults with poor construction and materials which are typical to all American made vehicles, regardless of marque. The best cars are the JDM sedans, but they are not available outside of the Asian markets.
