I own a repair shop and i have known the quality of them was falling off for years,and people get really mad at you if you say anything about a Honda or a Toyota,but the truth is there trying so hard to out sell American cars there letting a lot of things slip by them,and this is helping the American car company's make a good come back,i myself wouldn't buy a Honda or a Toyota,but i have owned them before,and got rid of them because i had no better luck from them than i did a dodge or a Chevy,now i own a few of each,dodge and Chevy's and will stay true to them ,even if they do give an occasional problem.
