Well, that's probably because Ford has some of the weirdest ways of putting their cars together. My dad and I fixed an older body style Crown Vic and had to take the entire, and I mean ENTIRE dash out to change--are you ready?--a light and a fuse.

Nothing is wrong with Honda's except for the owners who turn themselves into brand nazi's are think that it is the best brand in the world and judge you negatively if you dont think the same. This can apply to owners of all brands....every group has their brand nazi's in them.

A REAL car enthusiast can be loyal to a favorite brand but can still appreciate what others have to offer. An elitist does not.

True car guys don't hate Honda, we hate rice. Try visiting anti-rice.com forums. Even though many members have RWD US built muscle cars there are many that have imports too. The site has nothing against imports, just dumb looking cars and fake performance products. Fast is fast, period. Looking good and going fast is all in the eye of the beholder.

Everybody should drive an acura or a lexus. that would surely ruin the rep that these cars have built

Nothing beats a riced out GS300

people love to hate hondas cuz they are superior in quality but not in styling and performance. Kind of like that smart geek in class.< but nobody hates him

The problem with Honda like everyone said are the ricers that own them. It is sooo annoying to hear the 70% of the Honda performance community brag about how there car is the fastest thing around and how they own everything blah blah blah, then you get on the forums or something like that and you see posts like "Shooting for 16's, any suggestions?" That is the only thing that annoys me.

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

Where I live is like the epitomy of ricers; body kits, 4" exhaust, rear wing, blingin chromes....but oh? whats that? no work on the motor??


I personally respect anyone who puts hard work into their car to make it fast; I dont judge until I have all the facts, unfortunatly; not too many tuners around here, just ricers

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

i find it humorous the changes we see given the region. here in arkansas, i see more toyotas and mitsubishi riced out than i see hondas (though we have our fair share of slow, winged civics..usually 88 models and older)

and back in dallas, i actually saw more slow domestics (especially 6 banger 'stangs) riced out than i did civics. in fact, there's some serious "sleeper rice" in that area. I pulled up on one girl in a four door civic just plastered with stickers and a huge wing, and the tin can exhaust thinkin "this is gonna be easy" and i about shit myself when she tore past me. the last thing i remember before i made a hasty right turn was her tailights and a blow off valve. pretty embarrasing.

anyways, yea, what were talking about?

plenty fast for me.

but if you mean to make it run 12's or 11's....jesus man, we're looking at another 5-6 grand for the h22a swap, then another 3 grand for the turbo kit, a grand or so in suspension upgrades.....etc etc etc

point being about 3500 down the road ive got a quick car, that still gets 35 miles to the gallon (in the city no less) and IMHO looks pretty nice (please note, it is still BONE STOCK in appearance, if you dont notice the flowmaster muffler, which most people dont.)

sure, it wont outrun a GS-T, but im only 19 and still in college. ive got awhile to go. lord knows i wont be driving this car all my life.
Sorry it took so long for the reply. I forgot about this thread. But, it's still going. $3500.00 is impressive for quickness. I know alot of the imports are pretty fast. I just can't get past that sound they make, it's like fingernails on a chalkboard. To each their own I always say. By the way, graduate from college. I dropped out at 23. Now, I need to go back to make any kind of real money.

They could finally make japanese muscle n/a engine power without use of a turbo. I wonder why they do'nt just create one vehicle that does that. What is the highest hp a japanese car makes anyways?? The only one I can think on top of my head right now is the 350z, 287 hp. Or the NSX, 290 hp.
Japanese companies do make v8's, I'm not sure if they put them in any of their cars. But, they put them in the Tundra,
(Toyota.) Nissan has a v8, ect. I don't doubt they could do amazing things if they really wanted to.Why they don't "just do it", is a mystery to me.I'm waiting to see what domestic and import companies do next.
