I chose Honda, Chrysler being a close second. If this poll was made in the 80's or 90's I would not have said Honda, but year after year, their cars just get worse. My friend has a beat up 1998 Civic with 287,000 miles (no fartcan) with a manual tranny and it's a joy to drive. I test drove a new Civic when looking to buy my Focus and it was a like driving a toaster. Nothing at all stuck out as fun or exciting, the wheel was there to turn the car, the pedals to go and stop. Everything was made of cheap plastic (Reminded me of the Dodge Caliber in more than a few ways), the seats were just okay and covered in UGLY fabric. (Honda has the worst seat quality of any auto manufacturer IMO, just look at a used accord with leather seating) Most of Honda's style, sport and soul has been stripped from it in the name of profit- much the same as Toyota lately.(They don't make the hate list because of how reliable they are) Speaking of which, late model Honda's don't break like they used to- as in they are capable of breaking now. I know several people who have 2004 and up Honda's with more issues than some Dodge owners I know.

Also get Mazda the heck off this list; their cars are fantastic, plus they have more cajones than any other auto manufacturer I've seen in a while. (Rotary race-cars, 4 cylinder hemis with hybrid transmissions, don't care what you think styling, ect)

My dad was taking me car shopping and we were driving around and he didn't tell me where were going. After several minutes I asked him and he said Honda and I gave him this look like . Went to Ford, loved the focus, got it same day.

I like Mazda's too but some people might not. While although being on the list does not necessarily mean I don't like it, most of these I do not like lol. :P

Since Mercedes wasn't on the list, I voted for Toyota.

After they killed off the Supra, Celica, and MR-S and introduced a bunch of Priuses into the world, I just can't stand it. They CLEARLY don't give a crap about quality or driving experience. They ONLY care about making a buck off of the hyper-eco hippies who worship the Prius which, in THEORY is a good thing but have you ever driven one? They are AWFUL cars. Absolutely awful. They only care about the $$$

I find this thread to be kind of juvenile.

I don't hate any manufacturer. I like or dislike individual models, but not an entire make. For example; many hate Chrysler. I happen to like the Crossfire as well as the 300, especially the SRT versions of each.

FF members should also realize that if this thread was posted on any other automotive board Ford is going to come up, it's inevitable. I just visited some family and one of them is shopping for a vehicle. I recommended the 2012 Focus, showed them one with options, leather, etc. You know what they said? "Putting leather in a Ford is like putting a dress on a pig." Really? Well 'scuse me. I drove all the way home in my FORD FUSION with BLACK LEATHER SEATS WITH CONTRAST CREME STITCHING.

So before you vote in this poll, remember that Ford isn't on the list merely because we are on a Ford site...

^That may be, but that forum isn't here. Besides, why not just hear what others think about other manufacturers? There's a reason why they didn't buy that specific car and or brand and it's interesting to hear.

By all means go ahead and trade $hit stories about other brands, I just ask that we keep in mind on other forums, those $hit stories are told about Fords.

Each Company has their stars... I mean I like any TRD in the Toyota's lineup and of course their Supra... I can overlook the prius lol

Chrysler? well the SRT-300 is pretty kickass.. i would never buy a normal 300 but i would an srt.

Dodge- viper of course which they are bringing back. and well Ive always like the Dodge Ram.

Mazda- IMHO the Mazda 3 's are the only ones i like. but IMHO they are too much money for the bang you get. idk...

Honda- well as you can see <-------| i wasnt a Honda fan when i joined... I also was like a little kid too... sometimes I sigh when i see my username tsk tsk... BUT the s2000? hell of a car. Drove one for a week... loved it.

Hyundai- i guess they made HUGE improvements to their line... the new sonatas, and elantras are very nice vehicles... ive even seen a 2010 Sonata dropped, nice wheels, clean exhaust and it looked sexy... If i didnt know about cars.. i wouldnt be able to say it was a hyundai... and of course the Genesis... drove one as well (lol i get bored on weekends and test drive cars, i like to rent cars with my state employee rate 10 bucks a day not a bad deal. the only downfall you can only rent twice a month.) back on topic the Genesis was really sweet I mean to me handling was pretty kickass... NOW THE VELOSTER IMHO pure crap.. i hate it... i like the concept, hated the end material... idk i just cant seem to like it..idk..

Chevy.. well the corvette of course.. i was a big 2010 camaro guy then i rode one ehh seems to plasticky... Im a avid member of Camaroz28.com great bunch of guys. and even some of them arent too excited with the 2010's. but i do dig the Zl1 thats coming out.. should be a beast.

so in conclusion since i obviously had no apparent reason of writing all of this... I think each company has their strong ends and weak ones... i dont hate particularly one per say... I mean cmon ford hasnt been the greatest either.. IMHO i do not like the 2012 and the fact they have so many issues... i hated the ride feel... idk.. maybe the next batch will be better and they will fix all their issues.. would i buy one? no. an st? maybe..but i honestly want an AWD for my next car and looks like the STI is WINNING lol

and for the Spell check police.. im aware i have horrible punctuation, no capitalization, and some iffy grammar.. butttt excuse me i am in the crapper and since writing this, my leg fell asleep.. try wiping your butt with a sleeping leg. quite hard for balance lol

BTW I VOTED FOR HONDA BECAUSE MY AVATAR LOL
