I doubt soccer moms had their team hanging from the liftgate and putting undue weight stress on the struts. They were probably legitimate defects that Honda owned up to and corrected.
Yes, Honda is a top notch manufacturer. I'll give you that. I've owned 3 Hondas and 2 Acuras. All great vehicles. We have an accord now with 240K on it.
So I guess, Ford is a terrible, deceitful company that cares nothing about its customers and only cares about dead presidents. How else could they survive for 100+ years and be thriving today when most are really hurting?
