A recent survey done showed that when people are looking to have a car transport them reliably that Honda came out as the leader.  Over the years, Honda has worked hard to improve their vehicles reliability, performance and fuel economy.  However, domestic competitor, Ford has been working on those exact same points and are showing to be ever increasing their market share for this reason.  Ford also has the advantage of not having to arrange car shipping as their vehicles are made here.  Overseas Honda is actually experiencing some difficulty in his production plants in China.  They had a walkout because they felt they were being underpaid.  I am sure this will get resolved, but is nice to see domestically Americans are feeling more confident with our car manufacturers.
