Most of the people that buy brand new Honda's (or foreign cars in general) are under the notion that their purchase doesn't hurt this country and that a big portion of that money goes to the economy here, instead of Japan. I know a few of those people from my old job. They each got themselves brand new Honda Civic's. I gave them **** when I saw what they drove to work one day. Ever since then, they've tried to justify purchasing their precious Honda's and say they are proud of their purchases. They say they've owned American made cars in the past and have had nothing but problems. Oh well, I guess you can't win over everybody.who knows but I can assure you a city in detroit is becoming a slum because of it..Thank all the people that drive honda's for helping Japans economy more than our own.
