    Honda has manufactured the most reliable automobiles for a very long time, theres is a reason why people say “it’s a Honda”.

    Right. Here is the most recent JD Power Vehicle Dependability results, which collects owners' problems with their vehicles after three years. See if you can find Honda.

    As the owner of a Honda Odyssey, I can attest to this. Their engines are still very good but they've had a string of unfortunate derision making starting around 2005 to about 2013-ish. I think they're back on track now but I'd be weary of purchasing Honda. Stay away from anything that has variable cylinder management

    Evidently you know a lot.

    Any vehicle can be modified. My point is if you want to do anything to Honda, as simple as changing wheels, be prepared to have to go all in and void the warranty. If a Honda/Acura is 10 years old then sure who cares. But I wouldn't touch a brand spanking new one.

    Based off of this are we really to believe that a Honda is less reliable than a Chevy or Buick, and is also on par with a Chrysler?

    :rofl:

    I've got an 07 Honda as a daily with almost 200k on the clock. I've done almost nothing to it besides oil changes. Expect to get at least another 50k out of it.

    For the record, these would be 2016 vehicles. From what I read, it is also 9-speed transmissions, body issues, and lots of electronics issues.

    FWIW, I sat in a Honda Civic, which I happen to like: your knees won't allow you to open the glove compartment when you are sitting in the passenger seat. While this seems trivial, I can't imagine the Honda of 30 years ago making such a ridiculous oversight.

    Nah. Intake/header/exhaust were standard modifications on 90s-early 00s Hondas. Never heard anyone get denied warranty because of those.

    Right? Why can't people understand that every single car ever produced has won its years' JD Power Award? lol

    People also fail to realize that Honda sells millions more vehicles than Chrysler.. Of course there's not gonna be as many reports on a Chrysler, no one owns them lol.

    Published data shows that Honda sells millions of more vehicles than some of the brands listed above it on that chart. Its not an accurate representation of reliability per vehicle sold..

    it literally says in the fine print that " rankings are based on numerical scores, and not necessarily statistical significance".....

    The fact of the matter is most car companies around the world including Honda AND Toyota, have started a slow downward spiral of quality. No matter how much we love them, or how amazing they were in our past years. Facts are facts, and manufacturers are looking for ways to cut costs and increase profit. And if that means lacking some quality in their production, then that’s what theyll do.

    I have wished Honda would make a truck ever since I worked for Acura in 1989. I still wish they did.

    Ridgeline got a better score than the Tacoma. According to the data. Provided by JD power in 2017

    Mine was hemorrhaging oil when I bought it with 110k miles.

    I also have VCM that disabled three cylinders for "better MGPs" but makes the engine about as balanced as a giraffe on a beach ball requiring "active" engine mounts that tend to blow about every 100k miles and costs over $1k just for one, fuken, mount (no, that's not including labor, that's just the part. You need to buy two of them...).

    VCM also causes the piston rings to rotate in the deactivated cylinders causing excessive oil burning. A class action law suite highlights all these issues for the Odyssey and Pilot.

    The EX-L and Touring with the VCM also use a smaller AC compressor so as to be able to run on 3 cylinder operations which means on hot days, the AC absolutely does not work, especially in traffic. I've had the AC "serviced" 5 times within the initial purchase warranty until the mechanic gave me the straight answer: the AC compressor is too small for the square foot area of the van.

    I've also had and still have multiple issues with the climate control module ($1.5k part), the parking sensors, and lets not event talk about the PAX tires Honda put on their Touring vans (another class action lawsuit, yay!).

    Its in the machine shop now for a new head gasket, at 170k miles, never overheated since purchased at about 110k miles, most likely cause by the excessive vibration induced by the VCM causing the oped deck engine to "scrub" on the head gasket.

    Let not also forget the 2004 - 2006 has monumental transmission problems. The 2007 and later models use the Honda Ridgeline transmission for a reason. And then there are the issues with the Honda accord 2.4L oil burning due to poorly designed piston rings...

    Shall I go on or will you please tell me how you van having no issues somehow affects everyone else's experience with Honda...?
