I think it's because Hondas are so common, everyone gets tired of seeing them.

Kind of like how everyone hates Jeff Gordon in NASCAR, or how a lot of people hate the Yankees for winning. They see and hear about them so much every year, they get sick of it and start to hate them.

I drive a Honda Prelude, and it's a real good car, but I'd never try to fix it up or anything. Because then I'd be too much like all the other people around here with their crappy "hooked up" Civics and Accords.

Honda's arent bad. If you want a fast honda, get a CBR1000.

I use a civic as a daily driver, and a 7 as a weekend warrior! Civics, accords, what have you, are just a dumb idea to "hook up". IMO

Yea, I can never dis on Honda Bikes, my pops, who's a muscle guy, has two muscle style ones. They have good ATVs and etc. In fact I'm sure the make decent cars, here's the problem...
Honda's are made to be budget economy cars... I'm tired of poeplegoing around thinking their Honda's are fast... y not brag to me about your high fuel economy. And then when poeple rice out their honda's and think they are sooo hot/fast... that is the most annoying thing. Tell you what, it's these assholes that are ruining it for you regular honda guys.

I think it's because alot of honda owners over-rate and brag about hondas. But for me, there's just something different about it, hondas seem to have this tinny, plasticy, toy-like feel about them, and I still can't put my finger on it, but it really is what makes me not like them - it's hard to describe.

Yeah, right on the money. I get the same plain, toy-like vibe when I think about Honda cars too. Not to anger the Honda enthusiast, but to me they seem like plain vanilla point A to point B cars, and honestly I think for that purpose they more than perfect. But in my opinion, they don't give off any excitement to drive them. And to me, excitement to drive a certain vehicle is what "cool" cars and everything else. But just like everything else, what puts me off on Hondas may be what turns other on.

Ha, I'm not mad at you. :p I, an acclaimed Honda fan, actually agree with that statement. When I first bought my Civic, I only had distant notions of turning it into a Ricemobile. I had only bought it for everyday transportation, and it took me 2 years to make it what it is now. Some people think that if they take a Honda (an extremely reliable car)and add horsepower, they get the perfect car. This is often not true. Souping up a Honda is a priveledge, not a right. :nono:

I like the Hondas that are all go & no show.Not the fart can exhuast having,sticker wearing,no perfomance,3 foot wing having,wastes of money on meaningless add-ons that don't amount to sh&^.Don't get me wrong,I've seen Cavaliers,Neons(lol),XR2's,Probes,Mustangs(v6's),C amaro's(v6 ).People want to have their rides look nice.But,all those examples are of extreme and costly add-ons that don't mean jack.

becase there is nothing one can do to a honda that hasn't been done before. lambo style doors, engine swaps, neons, whatever. it's all been done before. i've even seen a old ass civic hatch with a chameleon paintjob. i don't even bat an eye.

It's not all hondas though, just the mainstream econobox's. civics, accords(non v6), del sol's, crx's, integra's. well come to think of it that's about all of them sans s2000, prelude and crv.

03-30-2004, 03:11 PM
there just really common, hell i don't like base mustangs, actually i'd rather have a honda than a v6 mustang. i love v8's though. anyway there are people souping up all kinds of cars that don't even need to be but japan made a bunch of aftermarket parts for honda's so if you want speed you can get it. yes you can run with the big v8's if you wanna spend 6 grand. nothing wrong with wanting your car to have a litle more juice, if your thinking that you can outrun supra's then your an idiot but actually if you talk to these guys they know there not fast but they were givin the car and they like to race and there's aftermarket parts so i'll add a little and race some other civics etc. mostly when you see a honda tryna race a v8 its simply cause they wanna see it go, they know they can't win.

I don't really think there is a reason people hate honda's aside from ignorance. I can see hating the tastelessly modded cars that stain the reputation of a true enthusiast, but not all hondas. I too hate these fools.

I grew up in a muscle car family, with muscle car friends. I own a '65 chev pickup with a small block 327 in it. While it's very fun to drive, it gets to be a hassle, and isn't very practical with rising fuel costs, upkeep, and traffic.

Since then, I purchased the 1992 honda prelude you see in my avatar. While it's power might be modest, it weighs less than my truck and gets a hell of a lot better gas mileage. That's not what sold me on the car though. What sold me was the feeling that came with the awesome handling of the car. This was something I could never get out of my truck. Many of my muscle car friends really didn't realize this until they rode in my car. I constantly hear, "wow, my car could never take a corner like that..". Now they are a bit more open minded about Japanese cars, and in my opinion, better people.

I don't really care if your 454 chevelle can take my prelude in the quarter mile because not all roads are straight..

I think that's Honda drivers other problem, they didn't stick to corners, V-8's own the straightaways, and always will, there is no replacement for displacement, but Hondas are fucking sweet ass handlers.

I like Preludes n S2000s for the most part, Accords even along w/ CRX's, it's just that for the import scene, everyone seems to have one, they all look alike, people brag about thier 100 somewhat hp after adding an exhaust and intake. Just gets old, I hate anybody that does that, so it's not really the car. It's the Honda owners and how they talk, but I do like them. Civics are just old.....

exactly. Honda's are just so practical and boring. Reason why it's like a toy car is because... It has no personality. People who get em are lemmings, just like everyone else.

Civics and Accords are just cheap grocery getters, and suping it up is like getting lambo doors on a neon, don't try to make it what it's not meant to be. Or else you are just going to be a wanna-be. And it's also the people. I go to the civic forums and these people are so immature (not saying all of em are). But a large portion are. They brag this and that and really bent on the idea that Civics are better than anything else. Also that if they got an engine swap, they are somehow better than you.

I had a 92 Civic before too, I could have put a fast engine in it, but it still woudn't feel like a real car. It would still always be known as the cheapest car out there and what cheap people drive, whatever engine or mods done to it. So I just saved up and bought a more unique and IMHO better car (95 Nissan 240sx)

True, but everyone has their own style and option, most of the people whom drive hondas are asses, My brother had the one I have now back 1994 when hooking cars up was not too commen, and did the work to it then, a few things have been modified, but I never brag about it, I could care less, it seems like now a days everyone is hooking up a car no matter what it is, the reason why people do civics is because they are cheap, I dont think that will ever change though, buit everything has been done to a civic, there is nothing else to do, you are right

I own a honda, and I have a factory spoiler. My point is that it's the bad apples that give everyone a bad name. The only problem is that there are many more bad apples in the japanese bucket... the apples have been spoiled by the cheap aftermarket. There are, however, some good apples left that get shit from EVERYONE because are from the same tree as the bad apples. You follow?

As for honda owners thinking they have a badass car... you could say that about anyone. I've personally heard people complain about the holier-than-thou 240 owners in here being assholes to them for asking simple questions. Well why are they so fucking great? By the car value logic that publicenemy imposes, I am $2500 cooler than most of them, because my car is worth that much more. The car is not what defines someone.. it's their attitude and charisma.

By the way.. I don't judge anyone from the 240 crowd just for being from the 240 crowd.. However, I do judge them for not trying to help out some kid that really wants to learn. That's the type of shit that crushes someones spirit. Probably makes them question why they'd want to be a part of that..

Maybe not.. just ignore my dribble.. I hate hondas too sometimes. Hate the cars, not the people, I guess..

Honda's are a lot like V.D. :puke:
You don't want one, but you probably have one.
Everyone else seems to have them.
There are plenty of ways to avoid it but nobody seems to listen.

It's not the cars.
Honda's are good cars. They have great engines (the V-TEC is a sweet one), they get good gas milelage, and are very reliable.
The problem is more in the following behind the cars. It may be your first car, it may be your fifth. People can't except the fact of what Honda's are (commuter car).Why do you want to "pimp" out your econo-box ride. :gay:
Everything has been done to death on them, and it rarely looks decent.
Everybody feels the need to throw on some twenties and put six 15's in the trunk with 10,000watts to be different from the rest of the crowd. When if fact it is just blending in to the crowd (because they're freakin' everywhere).
Honda's just are too plain.
And ricing them out doesn't do anything to help. :2cents:

People are compeled by the desire to be the best at what they love. Or just have loud music. Many cars today have very good stereos, but they lack low end bass. I have to admit that being in a car with enough bass to shake your testicles is pretty cool, but it's not for me. Too much weight in my "boring honda".

I thought of something while sitting on the can reading my "honda tuning" magazine. Some of you might have been alive when Carol Shelby, or whoever did it first, put a small block in the cobra and it dominated motor sports. Same concept with a civic. Put a bigger motor, like an H22 in and it's fun as hell to drive. A low 14/high 13 second car with just a motor swap.. hmm.. no personality?

As for the vette.. it has a bit of a central american look to it.

I don't think it's that they love them, it's that they suffer from a lack of knowledge about cars. They have the desire to modify their vehicles, but lack the necessary cash and brains to do it tastefully. Clear taillights are cheap, easy to install and, sadly, are a 'gateway mod' for many peoples cars. This is my theory on ricers anyway...

I will admit that when I was 16, driving my $400 1984 civic hatchback, I looked for clear taillights for it. Mostly because the existing lights were broken though. Then I found forums, which led me to better mods.
