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

They've built a plane now, the HondaJet.

Its small, slow and ugly.

Seems they've built the aviation version of the Civic.

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

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.

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

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.

I get the feeling when I hear of a Saturn. Especially with these new dent proof doors.

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. 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.

I don't hate Hondas, its just that ricers boast them as great racing machines, so I have to make fun of them to balance it out.

Honda's are like an annoying sister. Lots of complaints, but everyone has one.

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

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.
