how to piss off a Honda owner.

tell him you like his new Hyundai..

yes I was being an ass because he was parked to close to my Camaro and I couldn't swing the door open to get in..

and yeah he was PISSED, snapped at me and told me it was a HONDA, not a wannabe... I responded by telling him yeah maybe, but Honda copied the design from Hyundai and the Genesis had been out for 4 years before the Accord redesign.

he got in his car and slammed the door and chirped his wheels out of the parking lot.. I couldn't help but laugh.


for those that don't get it:

Hyundai Genesis:

The new Honda Accord:

You'd think Honda would steal a design from a more prestigious company. Even Kia knew to rip off Jaguar.

Yea the Accord does look pretty aggressive now atleast in the front and the coupe with the manual and V6 is as quick or quicker than a V6 Camaro.

The eight gen coupe looks really good IMO. I don't like the newer one though.

The 2010 Honda Accord Coupe in my family is a giant POS.

Those two cars don't look that similar... other than color.

How to piss off a Camaro owner: park anywhere within 40' of their car.

FYI: I do own a Camaro... and a Honda.

You might need to get your vision checked. With the exception of the last 4 inches at the bottom, and badging those cars are nearly identical.

When Accord debuted it was almost universally described as a Genesis knockoff from the rear.

...not unless Ford's build quality and reliability has substantially improved,
good looks notwithstanding.

"Fix Or Repair Daily" is not an undeserved slight for many of their vehicles.

I can appreciate a Honda but I would rather drive anything American over anything Japanese. I'm a man of principal.

Which it has.

I don't view Honda as some patron saint of reliability. In recent years the quality of their vehicles has become downright pathetic. Especially material-wise.

Honda lost their way for 15 years or so from a design standpoint. The new generation seems to have helped them find their way back.

Wrong.. The current gen accord seem to be based of the 2000-2001 model, nothing to do with the genesis at all

Canada is in North AMERICA, Spanky... lol

My thought process is that the company is US owned so the money goes back to the USA. No matter how you cut it, it's till better than buying a foreign car.

Oh and I KNEW as I typed that someone would bring that up.
