You, besides myself are the only voices of intelligence on here. I too worked for Honda, but a few years ago. Great company that takes good care of their employees.
If you're so "intelligent", then why is it that you don't know how to put a proper sentence together? Do you know any fourth graders? They might be able to help you figure it out.

Quit complaining about not buying American. American Auto Makers dug their own hole and now they can bury themselves in it. They have given us poor quality autos for decades. You can't even consider matching the quality of Honda and Toyota.
I have a Toyota and two Fords and I see nothing superior in the toyota.I have never had any problems with my Fords and if i do I can at least afford to fix them.Toyota's are criminal with repair bills.

People like you are part of the problem. It's not the Union's fault. It's the weak people like you who want the wages and benefits from a union job, but won't stand up for things when they need to be stood up for. If it weren't for Unions, the Non-Union sector wouldn't pay nearly what they do. People like you crack me up. You have no idea what you're talking about. You're a scab and should get a real life.
I wouldn't have minded buying a union made car, but let's face it, the reputation in quality and service after the sale is part of the reason for GM's issues. They turned out crap for so long that people just finally said to h@ll with that BS, we have a lot of choices. That perception is going to be very hard to shed, if ever. GM ignored the complaints.

You can't blame the consumer for not buying a crappy product.

Honda needs to give to the country's economic problem. Give us a new car! We want new cars! We want to feel good in a new car! We want to be able to smell the new car smell! I say, give out the new cars, now that would really get Honda on the national news! Honda has given out, at random, free cars. Please start with me.
Obama is working on that at this very moment. After the very successful 'cash for clunkers', the US tax payer is ecstatic that our Government is now considering a follow up program called....'new GM cars for nothing'. The only catch is that you must have been on welfare over the past 5 years and are a registered Democrat at the time of the give-a-way. Isn't it exciting what Obama is doing for us and the Government run auto industry?

The only way I'd buy a used vehicle is if I knew the guy selling it and knew how he treated the vehicle. These crooked car salesmen don't care about you or what condition the car they're trying to sell you is in. At least when you buy new, you know no one else has abused it. Again, the price you have to pay just for peace of mind.
You wouldn't want to buy one of mine after I have had it a couple years.

I don't have much of an argument there. Last year my wife and I were looking for a new car for her. She has driven Honda/Acura's for the past 10-20 years. We looked at and drove many new "domestic" cars. Other than Caddilac, GM cars felt cheap. Chryslers really felt cheap, and Ford cars were not much better. We settled on the Ford Edge, and overall, I have to say that Ford has come a long way with their quality. The thing they really need to improve on is the paint. Right after we bought it, we had to have the entire hood repainted because it had so many chips in the paint. Other than that, it seems to ride great and feels very close to her last Acura. Ford is at least trying to compete with Honda and Toyota.

yeah, I got the loaded version but given Honda's reliability rating I will own that car for a very long time. I didn't really think the price was that bad considering it offers most of the features of a high end luxury car like BMW or Lexus at a much lower price. The same features and options on a BMW cost over $40,000. I also have to say as far as customer service goes Honda can't be beat

If you do half as good as my Maxima (210K) you'll be happy! BTW, from what I read on these boards, don't forget trans fluid service.

Just to let you ALL know that are arguing over the UAW. Honda is NOT union, never has been and never will be. Honda offers a competitive wage, 401k and a good benefit package. However they are bringing temporary workers from outside companies in to slowly eliminate the regular workers so they can save money. Hence the reason why they have their parts made in other countries JUST like the big 3 and others. All of that to save a buck and sacrifice quality. Ex: statements made that Honda is a union company
No BEE(Bea as you spell it) in my bonnet this morning just don't understand people that make comments that have NEVER worked in an automobile factory in their lives.
Happy to have the job? Yes very much but worried that Honda will eventually eliminate my job with others that have been long employed there so they can save a dollar or two and their quality is declining and will continue to decline.
By the way Honda never offered anyone 17k and a new civic to walk away from the company. Just another FALSE example of why people continue to wag their tongues about everything they know NOTHING about.
The Union? All of them are worthless, they take your money from you and do nothing for you. Unions work for the company and no one else, they get paid under the table on top of your union dues to keep the mouths shut of the workers that do the grunt work. Speaking from a person that married into a family of Steelmill workers that worked their fingers to the bone and got nothing out of it but to have their weekly pay checks stripped after paying union dues, fees for uniform/safety gear and locker rentals and then some. They get a complaint from a employee and that employee is threatened to keep their mouth shut. Unions snuff ideas thoughts and suggestions that would help inprove quality, safety and the like out of the employee. Unions ARE nasty people they are mob-related and underhanded and I am thankful I do NOT work for them or under them. Give it time though, Honda is slowly stripping everything else from their 'regular" associates, I am sure bringing the union in to "work for them" will be their next plan. All in the mighty dollar. A family member of mine tried to "stand up" for what they knew was right regarding a safety issue within the foundry they worked for and got threatening phone calls from a union head at home and was followed to and from work. We had the call traced and it came from a local union chapter. Who is doing who a service when it comes to the unions?
Honda and all of the other makers have no business launching a new model vehicle. Two lines run and operate at the Marysville Auto plant Line one, second ahift has NOT been running since Febuary of last year and cut-backs in every department throughout the entire company. What a waste, for any of them to take a risk right now to launch a new model. Talk about putting the cart before the horse.
Hope you get some rest this evening CMH Rick and maybe try commenting about subjects online other than this one.

What u fail to understand is that Honda would not pay competetive wages and 401k if there were no unions. You can thank your prior union brothers for these benefits. You think the company cares about your families healthcare benefits. Hope you get laid off and work in the service sector with no union influence and pay half your salary for health care idiot.

I work at Honda in Marysville Ohio and 80% of the parts are made in Mexico, China and Japan. Just like GM, Ford and the rest!
Unless you work for an automaker, you DON'T know what you are talking about so it is better that you leave your unknowledgeable comments to yourselves
Your right my daughter worked for a parts supplier for Honda and the majority of the parts they sold were being flown in from China and Mexico.They also pay convicts pennies on the hour to make parts in the States.
