Timing belts don't go out on Hondas? I think it is more like, thats what you get when you beat an already tired engine you ignorant ****.

no more then 30k :(

Well....I can attest that European cars such as Toyotas and Hondas last a liltte bit longer but thats not to say they don't have problems. My dad has a Honda Civic hatch back 1988 with 207K that ran like an ox but the outside of the car was ****...And the Alt, starter had to be replaced. The Ac fan motor also crapped out. My car had nothing wrong it @ 166k...Cept I put a tranny in it 2 K miles ago.

****! It shouldn't have gone that quick. Was it an OEM belt or an aftermarket? 60k-90k is the usual suggested interval for a timing belt.

American companies have won just as many awards on quality and value as imports in the past 10 years. In fact it is even hard to say whats import and what isn't anymore, because of cross-platforming and sharing technologies. The lines are so blurred that the badges are nearly the only clues. Every region has it's good cars and its bad cars and pros and cons to each one.

Interior wise especially. Great ****ing strip cars though, especially LS1 equipped maros. The interior ****** *** in them though and everything rattled.

Daewoo is Korean and a large portion of GM's vehicles are now made by them :p:I know that and I was waiting to spring the **** trap you bish. Actually to be more accurate Daewoo has always been a GM owned/operated company. They only uyse the Daewoos for low end econoboxes in the GM domestic lineup though, hardly a large portion.

GM didn't become a majority stakeholder in Daewoo Motors until August of this year ... They were minority stakeholders since 1972, though, but a minority stakeholder doesn't have complete control over a company ...As big as GM is, they had ENOUGH control/influence. Plus your facts are seriously WRONG. Most assets were purchased by GM in 2001.


After Toyota's withdrawal in 1972, Shinjin Motor started a joint venture with General Motors under the name General Motors Korea, but was renamed again in 1976 to Saehan Motor. After the Daewoo Group gained control in 1982 the name was changed to Daewoo Motors. In the early 1990s the company started to expand heavily throughout the world. Until 1996 all cars were based on models from General Motors. After the Asian financial crisis started in 1997, it took over the troubled jeep specialist SsangYong in 1998, but ran into financial trouble in 1999.



From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GM_Daewoo

I took the liberty to highlight a key phrase in there that indicates more than a backseat role for GM since 1972. befoe August of 05 they still had 66% of shares between them and their partners. That is hardly a small stockholder.

I am not aguing that fight one bit. I am arguing that neither is the absolute answer and that everyone has their strangths and weaknesses. Only certain ignorant shits are claiming one side superior.

back to the topic instead of fueling this pointless and never ending argument...

i'd vote for the s2000



the american vs import argument will never die, especially with where both are manufactured nowadays. i typically like and dislike at least one vehicle from almost any manufacturer, face it most companies have a flagship and crap too, and you cant compare a corvette to a civic or an evo to a cavalier, as a lot of people seem to do uneven comparisons to support their argument either way.

GM doesn't own Suzuki either ... doesn't matter that they're business partners, GM still didn't have a majority stake in Daewoo until 2005 ...To say that is poppycock they had just as much ownership as anyone else. Daewoo itself had only 33%. GM had a big say in what they did. If you really think some small **** ant company like that didn't take suggestion from a financial partner like GM seriously then your pretty **** blind.
