lol hooray for badge engineering.
 
 
@SeraphimDawn  
It’s weird how that works. My cousin has a Ford and it has had problems, my mom’s Chevy seems to go through anything.
 
American automotive quality control is so horrible… anything can happen due to horrible tolerances in parts.

I want to like Mazda but they should offer more power to match their handling.
 
Ford has long been the best of the American automakers. When GM and Chrysler went begging to the government for a bailout, Ford held their own and emerged from the recession stronger. I respect that.

My family traditionally revere Japanese brand cars, particularly Honda. But Honda seems to be slacking lately and Toyotas feel uninspiring and boring. My cousin had a bad experience with Nissan service wise.
 
I would go Subaru. But I hear their maintenance and part costs are pretty high for consumer models.  
Contemplating on going Mazda…
 
My dad lately however, has set his eyes in Hyundai/Kia cars. Something he would never have done in the previous decade. They sell high first hand, but drop in price pretty big second hand. If we ever consider buying Korean, we’d likely go second hand.
 
He SCORNS American cars except for maybe Ford. Having less than stellar experience with his Pontiac couple decades back. He had a 1995 Sunfire and my uncle’s GMC Astro. Causing him to distrust GM pretty much eternally.

Problem with the oil and such, poor handling.
 
 
He will NOT touch Chrysler and Dodge cars with a 20 foot pole.
 
But he had excellent experience with his old 1997 Mercury Villager van which he initially used as a family hauler and later a work van. Used it for over a decade with little to no problem.

Looked like this one.
 
 
Doesn’t even think about German or other European cars. Too much hassle and ridiculously high maintenance costs.

I could do without the faux stitching on the dashboard but that’s rather nice overall for a mainstream car. I ignored the Korean brands for a long time because of their cheap reputation and because a person usually aspires to better than their first car which in my case is a Hyundai. But I’m coming around. Kia and Hyundai offer a solid value right now.

I always change the volume in my car via the steering wheel buttons but I dislike putting the volume control on a touchscreen as a matter of principle. Use the touchscreen for things that actually require a touchscreen like navigation and leave the rest to physical controls.

Strange as it looks, I can see some utility in keeping the nav display on its own screen so it and the radio can be used/manipulated at the same time. I’m not sure if that’s a situation that will come up particularly often, but I can at least see some logic there. The main complaint about them I’ve seen is that putting the volume control on a touchscreen means that you’ve got no tactile feedback, so to change the volume you have to either look at it (and therefore not the road) or just fumble around and hope you find it.

If I recall. Honda is often praised and successful for doing the same things that work for years now.  
If you look at their current generation Accord and compare to the previous one, you’ll see they’ve started to abandon their old philosophy and instead trying to appeal to current auto trends.

probably, yes. I feel there might be one automaker that has two, I can’t remember. you’re right though. it is the radio that has a separate screen and then they have their own buttons

Craftsmanship and build quality are important basically everywhere now, that’s why Honda is so cool because they build nice interiors now.
 
@SeraphimDawn  
that car is like my fantasy. a regular car in mint condition.
 
nobody would ever keep that car looking so good besides a grandma (or a person like myself)
 
 
@SeraphimDawn  
hm, Acura has some pretty sexy crossovers.  
full  
That rear? absolute eye candy of the grocery-getting variety…
 
also, I remember when everyone made fun of the 2008 TL, I always liked it. It seemed “gangster” just like the 300 was in 2005.

@kleptomage  
Yeah, that’s a whole lot more effort than anyone’s going to put into a normal car.
 
 
@SeraphimDawn  
Do those magazines give more details about what reliability entails? I remember reading somewhere that reliability ratings are heavily influenced by things like infotainment systems, so it could just be that Acura uses an awkward UI or something. I’m not sure if it applies to Acura, but Honda’s been taking some flak lately for moving too many controls to touchscreens.

But unlike Lincoln, Acura cars are quite common on the roads here where I live alongside BMWs, Audis, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, and Infiniti. More common than Cadillacs actually.
 
According to consumer report magazines, they seem to nearly bottom out on the list on reliability.  
What is up with Honda lately? They were known for reliability for many years. Only Fiats, Dodges, Jaguars, and Chryslers score lower than them.

True. I’d expect the build quality gap will continue to get smaller, though. If you’ve got robots assembling a car from start to finish, there’s really no reason it shouldn’t be well made. Maybe made using cheap materials, but still very precisely made.
