Re: Honda haters?

I am a Die hard American Classic enthusiast but I dont hate imports with a passion, I simply dislike them. My problem with hondas and other ricers is that They are so widely available, everyone and their little brother has one and because they sound like someone done pissed off a bumble bee. Also because all these kids get them put some plastic wheel covers on them and a 4 foot wing on the back and think their cool. One more thing for all you performance minded import owners and your sacred wings. Think about it, the point of a spoiler/wing is to increase downforce right? but all your imports with the exception of a few like the eagle talon are front wheel drive so putting more downforce on the back end thereby lifting the front end up will give you LESS traction NOT more Giant wings screw up Hondas they dont help them.

i duno why u seem to hate on hondas.. even if u put in an intake and think ur car is fast.. it IS FASTER even marginally faster than the stock car.. so whats there to complain about.. looks are also subjective.. what if someone lives in an area where altezzas and fancy lights make ur car? then whatever u drive won't be nice in their eyes.. don't be so biased.. looks are subjective

thats why we put body kits on our cars so it'll create downforce equally on the car lol.. anyways it'll just push the back of the car down once ur going like 60mph n faster.. it wont' make the front of the car higher.. just the back lower.. and some people like the sound of an exhaust.. i wanted a deep sounded exhaust on my accord.. but i found out a majority of the "rice" exhausts actually make ur car slower

Re: Honda haters?

These people that hate Hondas are feeling jealous. I think. I mean, don't these Chevy Malibu drivers feel like dumbasses when their pieces fail after 50k miles? Hondas are made to last, and thats why they are expensive, which alienates all kinds of cheap people. Eat that.

Re: Honda haters?

Read any car magazine or speak with owners of recent GM products and tell me that GM is back in the game. GM is still tying its shoes while everyone else is out playing.

You're right, they were made to last; they are economy cars. Besides that, I always thought Hondas were pretty cheap vehicles, and I highly doubt that anyone is jealous of honda owners. Why would someone be jealous of honda owners and then go spend more money on another car when that money could have gotten them a honda? See where I'm going? As for reliability of GM, I work at a GM delearship and I have seen MANY vehicles come in with 150k, and even a couple with 270k miles on them, just getting regular maintenance(i.e. oil changes, tire rotation and such). If you look at the engines, you'll see that overall they are good build quality. The 3.8 is one of the best engines they have ever built; remember the GN? That's a Series I 3.8 with a turbo charger, GREAT car, and something I would take over any turboed honda or acura, even if it was done right. I have a 3.8 in my car and I didn't have to replace the head gaskets until 80k miles, I don't know if that means much to you but oh well. Hell, even the 3.4 is a strong engine, if it weren't for the damn leaks that engine would be more well thought of.
I used to be the same way you are ya know? I used to swear that ford cars suck, specifically the mustang, but you know what? I don't think that way anymore. Just because there is a vehicle I would rather have in place of a mustang, doesnt mean that they are crap, it just means that I favor the other vehicle more.

Why did you have to replace the head gaskets so soon. I have a Park Ave with the 3.8 that has 193,000 on it and have never had to replace the head gaskets. Or is this the 3.8 that Ford makes.

1. Im willing to bet very few of those body kits have been wind tunnel tested and proven to reduce drag and increase downforce.

2. On a FWD you want more traction over your drive wheels, that spoiler does nothing for you. During a drag launch your weight transfers to the back and your front wheels just spin. Do you really want to increase the weight over your rear wheels?

3. Getting an exhaust because you like the sound of it isnt wrong. Its your car and your money. The line ends there... too many people cross that line when they overestimate the gains of said exhaust, and consider their cars "sports cars" becuase they sound such a way.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Honda haters?

Well, we had just gotten the car and I went over everything and checked them out and there was a problem in the gaskets; a bit of a defect, so I replaced it. It's the GM model. Like I say, it was a defective gasket, which come about every once in a while.

i like both import and american, and honda is known to last long, even lots of american car owners will admit that. why do they put wings on the proffesional import cars that race? moderator carrnuut has went over this plenty of times, wings are not bad, they actually help. i own a vr4 with a sticker on the side of it that says south bend clutch, and, i've blown the doors off many american cars. and why are people on here talking down on asians, as if there dumb. most the ricers around here are white, and lots of asians have 12 sec integra's. so what, does that mean to talk down on white's.

please people , no racism!!
