You all need to get over your 'Japanese is Rice and rice is bad' habit.
Honda and Toyota are the best car makers in the world.
Honda used to employ a simple AWD/Steering technology on Preludes in the early 90's!
Their motors and technology are ahead of everything on the market. I consider BMW to be the only car maker at the same level as these companies, internationally.
