Japan is going to be nice to you only until they destroy the local industry. Then you will pay through the nose for your cars.

Already Toyota is the #1 automaker in the world by market value and Chrysler has been gobbled up by a German company. The other two probably only have a few years left. Who the heck wants a car that needs major work at 50,000 miles. Sadly, these are only the end of a long list of industries that have already been destroyed by the Axis powers since the war. These clandestine, conspiratorial industrial attacks must be stopped while there is still something left of America's main industry.

Step #1. Buy an American brand even if you know they are not better.

Step #2. Get politically smart and start asking the hard questions. If something looks stupid then you have almost certainly found corruption. Stupid people rarely come into positions of power, but smart con artists often fake stupidity.

There you have it. A simple two step process that you can do or have your economy die. The choice is yours.
Have my economy die, hahahaha!!!!!!! There are quite a few import factories in the united states. They actually provide jobs to american citizens. I have an American car. Is it any better than the imports I have owned??? No, not really. I've had good and bad in both classes. I won't complain about my car. Although I've had really stupid problems with my domestic at lower miles than any import with high miles I've ever owned.

Re: Y do people hate hondas so much....

Would you want an engine with 500 LBS of torque but it would only spin to 1000 RPM??? NO, because an engine like would only make 92 HP.

Re: Y do people hate hondas so much....

Yeah, but it'd be the best damn 92hp around! Hell, at 1000rpm? It could climb hills in top gear at idle!

Re: Y do people hate hondas so much....

It would be good for a truck, but it probably would'nt make a good racing engine.

Re: Y do people hate hondas so much....

It would be able to haul, but not accelerate... HP and Torque work together.

Re: Y do people hate hondas so much....

Why would you want to race with such an engine?

Torque and rpm work together, HP is just the sum of both rpm and Torque.

Torque is overrated, RPM is often ignored. If one engine made the same Hp as another, but had more torque...then the other one has more RPM.

Hey, use muscle guys don't hate all hondas, just the queers who talk shit all day long, and then when you see if that queer wants to race they say something like, i don't do drag, it's gay well, your the one that was saying that you would tear my 400 horse power nova to shreads, and now you back down, or sometimes they say that there car is set up for drifting, FUKN NEWSFLASH, you can't drift a front wheel drive car, at least not corectly

I don't mind Honda. Their quads, anyway. They probably pull harder than their cars...

Alot of people make fun of Hondas because they don't have 'torque'...they have a crapload of RPM which makes up for the lack of torque.

Hondas are pretty in yellow. They look and sound like a bumble bee as they speed past me and into a light post.
