    "Don't tell me about Honda"

    I bought a 2002 Honda CR-V new from the dealer in Ocala, Florida. Its cruise control didn't work from Day 1. In the first year I had it, there were four factory recalls for it. Within the two years the upholstery on the front passenger seat came apart at the seams, and the motor in the right rear window failed and had to be replaced. Honda. Bah, humbug!

    Wow ! Some cretins love to knock anything that Detroit and AMerican brands build!. Take a breath Tote! Chill !

    Funny, but the new Accord was styled (ripped off) from the 2003 body design of the Saturn L200: Look it up !
    The 2003 Saturn L200 was the model when Accord designers were wondering how to draw the new car.

    Oh well, CU must know what they are writing about..nonetheless, I'll keep driving my Chrysler car going on 8 flawless years other than tires and brake pads and fluids.

    “Three popular Toyota models – the redesigned Camry V6 sedan, four-wheel-drive V8 Tundra pickup, and the Lexus GS with all-wheel drive – all had below-average reliability,” noted the magazine, in a prepared release...

    Since all of the above problems involved were covered under recall notices (instituted by Toyota, not NHTSA ), and since the actual numbers that actually had the problems were very small, I think it is wrong to blame Toyota for trying to protect their customers. They could have taken the path of most of the domestic manufacturers and ignored the problem until NHTSA forced them to take action, (Chrysler still hasn't fixed all the bad latches on their Minivans! and Ford still refuses to address their headgasket problems on the Aerostar V6 engines.)
    You could just buy a Chevy Volt that they advertise so heavily as it has never had a recall of any kind. Oh wait, they don't even run yet!
