Yeah, buy an american car if you want one with a 5 litre engine that'll need refueling every 5 miles. Buy an american car if you want one that ways 10 tonne, and you're after a battering ram. Buy an american car if you like naff styling and ugly images.

Where are the facts to back up this original comment? "Buy Honda if you enjoy fixing your car on the side of the road"
This makes no sense at all, Honda has famed reliability and my experience of a civic 1.8 VTi (owned for one year) backs this up, never had a single problem. I have no personal experience of American cars, but they seem to be just big vehicles with huge engines that don't go round corners very well. Also despite their large engines any proper performance car like an Impreza turbo would outrun them on a track or road.

I'm not sure who you guys are, but I'm a die hard import guy. However I don't enjoy putting down American cars that have a much faster speed. In other words both have very good qualities.

I agree with the above comment. Cars from all parts of the world have their positives and negatives. As for the writer of the first comment, you are just plain ignorant.

I've just bought a 1992 Honda civic VTi, and these cars are superb, and I would recommend them to anyone who is after one. My Honda has been dyno tested, and is running 175 bhp and it flies.
Only a couple of engine mods have resulted in the power gain. I have a standard exhaust on mine and it sounds like a normal everyday car, until you hit the VTEC, then you notice the sound change, and you will notice it, because the engine screams and it sounds like a race car, which is fantastic.
Also the engines in these are bullet proof, which means a lot more fun and driving flat out.
