I dunno, 8 random pictures of combusting hondas seems like a legitimate set of statistics that prove the other million cars they sell in a year are not reliable.

Hondas are great cars.
The fact that most of them are boring as ****, bland, and ugly changes nothing.

It s my opinion that you were likely molested in the back seat of a Honda accord by your well endowed uncle. You're hondaphobic.

Funny, never once did I ever refer to them as "not reliable." I did however mention that I think they're pieces of ****, which to me, they are.

Fact of the matter is, as mentioned, they're the ****** ugliest cars on the road, are terribly boring, and sound like ******* raped dog **** when ******* retards cut the mufflers off and pretend like they're cool.









My favorite way to stack a honda...





Collect the whole set!

The driver of the 2006 grey Ferrari and the passenger, both aged 20, were the sons of top managers of a Moscow bank, a Moscow law enforcement official said. The father of one of the boys quickly arrived at the scene of the accident in his Mazeratti.
While the Ferrari’s passenger was badly injured, the driver came out of the accident without a scratch. A rescue worker attributed this to the modern airbag of the vehicle.

I'm with you Elesjuan. I don't ever buy cars which are capable of being wrecked or smashed or altered in any negative way whatsoever. So you'll be happy to know I'm never buying a Miata.

They obviously roll over easily.


They aren't waterproof. My $20 watch is waterproof, and this expensive hunk of crap isn't. That's just poor build quality.


Someone tried to wax this one, and look what happened. That's Japanese cars for you.

U mad?

Most everyone on here could think of a car brand they dont like, this **** isnt any different. I dont like Honda either for the same reason I dont like Apple, I think they are all hype and no substance.

Sure someone could do something cool on a mac, but normally they could do better on a pc, and overall pretty much ****.

I do appreciate Hondas attempt at trying to make a sporty hybrid.

Apples are awesome. Windows is faster running on VMWare simultaneously with Mac OS X on my Macbook Pro than the piece of **** Windows based PC that I built (identical components to the Macbook Pro) before buying the Macbook Pro 4 years ago.

Reasons I hate Ford
They cant decide if the plugs should stay in, even when you try to take them out or that they should justs shoot out by themselves.



And a motor that most people love from ford


Seen worse with only 500hp



The LT1 is the bastard child of chevy and Ive never heard of an LT1 block failure.



EVAP and EGR systems on the v8s and six cylinders from mid 90s to mid 00s are horrible and fail all the time.

Ford did some bullshit to hide small misfires caused by coils or plugs on the 4.6s and 5.4s and it makes diagnosing them a huge pain in the ***. Plus the coils fail ALL THE TIME.

All their rubber **** degrades, seems like its always a pcv line which seems simple enough, but on some of them you have to get a whole line from the dealer instead of just the leaking part and its routed in some pain in the *** way that calls for way too much labor to just install a rubber hose.

They put integrated modules on **** where it completely useless, example on the focus they have a fuel pump module so diagnoing a basic fuel pump takes a long time because you have to go through and verify the module is working properly. I know the tauruses and mustangs have an integrated AC module and each car has a bunch of different options on the module, they go out all the time, are expensive as ****, and hard to find.

They change their parts mid year constantly, makes getting the right parts a huge pain in the ***.


Plus every 3.8 mustang sounds like dogshit because ford designed it so condensation or something drips onto the EGR pipe or exhaust manifold until it cracks and makes a huge exhaust leak.

Was at best buy a lil while back with a friend, he was shopping for a labtop. Associate came up to see what we wanted and I was in a trolling mood, so I brought up mac vs pc. His argument boiled down to macs are better because they are made of aluminum instead of plastic. Plastic is an insulator and aluminum is... I cant remember the word he used. I was confused because I am sure I have seen aluminum windows labtops. Plus in cars its the other way around. A composite IM is considered better than an aluminum one, because the plastic stays cooler.

But im not an engineer or physicist so It could have something to do with the heat source being inside (labtop) versus outside (engine) and I wouldnt know.

Still seems silly that case material alone makes mac superior.

Picture thread.

My favorite wheel manufacturer's take on one of the only ferraris i like.

Spark plug issues

2-valve 4.6 L, 5.4 L, and 6.8 L engines found in many 1997–2008 Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles have an issue with stripped or missing spark plug threads in the cylinder heads. Ford acknowledges this issue in TSB 07-21-2 as well as earlier TSB's. Ford's TSB does not state that this issue is caused by owner neglect. Ford's only authorized repair procedure for out-of-warranty vehicles is to use the LOCK-N-STITCH aluminum insert and tool kit. For vehicles under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, Ford will only cover the replacement of the entire cylinder head; however, the Ford recommended spark plug service interval extends beyond the duration of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.[41]
3-valve 5.4 L and 6.8 L engines built before 10/9/07 and 3-valve 4.6 Ls built before 11/30/07 found in many 2004–2008 Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles have an issue with difficult to remove spark plugs which can cause part of the spark plug to become seized in the cylinder head. The source of the problem is a unique plug design that is made with a 2-piece shell, which often separates, leaving the lower portion of the spark plug stuck deep in the engine. Ford acknowledges this issue in TSB 08-7-6 as well as earlier TSB's. Ford's TSB does not state that this issue is caused by owner neglect. The TSB provides a special procedure for spark plug removal on these engines. For situations where the spark plug has broken in the head, Ford distributes multiple special tools for removing the seized portion of the plug. The multiple procedures required for the different cases/situations of plugs seized in these engines are explained in the TSB. This repair is covered for vehicles under warranty; however, the Ford recommended spark plug service interval extends beyond the duration of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.[42]
Federal-Mogul, parent company of Champion Spark Plug, and Brisk Silver Racing have introduced a 1-piece machined shell 3-valve spark plugs that addresses the OEM 2-piece spark plug's separation issues.
My dad was mentioning this to me a few months ago. He was describing this and a procedure from autolite? about pouring some penetrating lubricant in the hole overnight, and if that didn't work what to do next, etc. That's just nuts.
I've never heard of cracked-in-half windsors though. haha.

Just look at the design of the plug. Enough said.

You forgot EVERY V6 Chevrolet has ever made, 60 and 90 degree. Somehow the 4.3 seems to have escaped the terrible exhaust note:






Then there's this.....

You're joking, right? Low nickel late 302 blocks are NOTORIOUS for splitting between the main bores and cam bores. Over ~7k rpm or ~500hp, they're on Miata-over-250hp-on-stock-rods kind of borrowed time...

The broken motors are all 5.0s. They seem to split down the lifter valley or at the mains around 500hp.

About the plugs:
Ford says the plug issue is due to neglect but they reccomend a 100K interval on the plugs on the newer ones that break all the time.

Ive done tune ups on those things at 80K were they broke, and I spray penetrating oil on the plugs and let them sit for a few hours then go and crack all the plugs over just barely breaking them loose. Spray more penetrating oil, let it sit a few more hours, and lather rinse repeat. I rarely break them now but it still happens when I take all the precautions.

The older ones are normally the ones that shoot out. One of my guys lost his on his NA cobra at like 40K miles.

I wasnt talking about the 3.8 having a bad exhaust note, Im refering to the fact that about 96.2% of the ones on the road have a damn exhaust leak that makes it sound like a diesel or that it has a major valve train issue.

The GM 4.3 is literally a GEN I SBC with 2 cylinder lopped off.

Im pretty sure that last video you posted isnt the the turbo 3.8. I think that thing was V8 swapped.

Picture thread so more beautiful fikse wheels.


So if we put Honda aside can we atleast all agree Fords are ****?

I actually had someone blow by me on I-35 about 6am Saturday morning in a new Z06. Had to have been going 140+ and made me lol.



Make your stupid honda sound like that and I'd consider buying one.
