Ok, we're thinking of going to test drive the "E" this weekend. The buildup is killing me. I guess I would like some input as the pos/neg of the vehicle. I have a couple concern that maybe you could put to rest.....
1) I've never had a foreign made car before.... Is Honda any good/reliable? God, I'm stupid....
2) Are parts any harder to come by/more expensive?
3) Do you think there will be "issues" with the E where its a newbie?
4) Can we actually test drive it without becoming more addicted?
Anything else you can think of would be appreciated. Thanks!
As far as reliability, let me give you some stats. The 2 most reliable marques sold in the U.S. are Toyota/Lexus and Honda/Acura. Toyota has a reliability score of 99.98, while Honda has a score of 99.95. This means on the average your Honda is running 99.95% of the time. Toyota gets their reliaility thru over-engineering and build quality while honda gets theirs thru simplicity and build quality. You'll never find that with european or American brands. The most unreliable marque sold in the US. is Dodge/Chrysler. As far as spare parts are concerned, I have found honda parts to be some of the lowest priced around, but the best part is you hardly ever need them.
