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

Well, my neighbors have HOndas, a boxy civic, wagon a ccord, and a newer civic which is really sweet for a show car which ois what it is. He doesn't brag about it, he takes it to NOPI and put sit out as a show car so that's peace but his boxy one, damn, it's fast...sleeper if it weren't for the decals. It's sweet, bnut they don't talks a lot of shit ya know. Like i said, it's not the car, it's the people that own them.....

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

Honda's are a lot like V.D.
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.
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.

Not all Honda is rice, and not all rice is honda:

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.

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

People hate Hondas because Honda drivers take gas-saving engines, put them into groccery getter chassis' and run 1/4 mile times similar to that of a 2001 Porsche 911 Carerra.


And another thing, whoever said building a fast import cost more than building a fast domestic does'nt know shit about imports.

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

The porsche uses more due tot he fact that it has 2 more cylinders, larger injectors, larger displacement, and is a sports car.

Peopel dont hate Honda's. Rather they hate the kids that drive them. A stock Honda is a great day to day car. good on gas, but in no way is it a race car, or sports car, (S2000 and NSX are exceptions)

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

Just seeing if anyone was paying attention.
Good job FDTT. Your point on the drivers being more the problem than the car bodes well with me.

The idea of honda downfall with being the drivers of the cars is a good reason... but personally, I use to drive my friendz civic EX and the car was a piece of shiet.. it only had 3,000 milez on it (pretty much new) i couldnt stand driving it.. i just think the car doesn't equate up to a german or american car. civic's just plain suck.
