I raced Honda motorcycles for a few years and had a lot of brand loyalty. around that same time (early 80's) Honda were making a strong engineering statement that they were the masters of 4 stroke engine design and technology ( 1.5 liter F1 turbocharged engines exceeding 1200HP in qualifying setup).
I have always dreamed Honda could produce a car that I could be passionate about. To date they have never come close.
This effort is abominable, like many designs from the east it lacks (IMHO) a continuity. its part altima, part saturn, part hundai, a little toyota thrown in and I would imagine the driving dynamics are even more confusing. Reliable transportation? probably. A rewarding driving experience? I'm thinking no
They will probably sell boatloads of them and for sure Car & Driver will swoon about it...... http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif
