    lol, what about the almost daily Ford, Chevy and Saturn recalls. I'd rather have my car recalled for the oil pump and rod bearing, then having a suspension fux0red and having my suv roll 3.75 times.

    Hey, I never purported Merican (2 syllables, not 3, and best said with a shitty-ass domestic beer in hand) engineering to be even remotely competent. But you usually don't see these types of recalls in Japanese cars, that's all.

    which is why you see Japanese cars with ~300k on them still doing okay. Really, the quality of any car depends on the owners' maintenance competency

    Actually, the Nissan 350Z had a recall for the gas gap or some shit, I dunno. Got the letter in the mail about a year ago.

    Well, right, that's what I mean. You'll see a seatbelt latch recall, or a gas cap recall, or a visor mirror recall ( :D ), but usually nothing like a goddam oil pump and rod bearing.

    Yea, the only recall on the 92-95 civics was for a seatbelt problem.

    should have been a goddamn seat recall in general

    no, just in USDM seats. The JDM ones were kinda a hybrid between the sol seats and the USDM seats. They look alright.

    honda's are in no way invinsible when it comes to recalls. The current v6 transmission has had some serious problems. Honda has since legthen the warrente on all V6 tranny's (IE Odysses, accord, older CL, ect)
