I'm not exactly sure what this thread is about, so sorry if this is the wrong response.
Hate Honda, Like the GTI, Like the Cobalt.
Dont like many japanese cars, like pretty much all euro cars, like most US cars...Chevy has been a rivalry of Ford, and I like some Chevys.

I dont hate honda, but i dont really like them, the cars just dont really do much for me, i think the accord coupe before the recent remodling was pretty hot, and i think the Acura RL and the RSX are hot too as well as the S2000, but the max power at really hi revs and the really really low tq is what kills it for me. GTI, i think they are alright, alittle on the heavy side, and i think the new one is really hot. Cobalt i like too, even though the interior is somewhat better it still not great and i wish it handled alittle bit better. Hell of alot better then the cavalier that it replaced.

I really only like the Cobalt SS. Good performance, good handling, decent interior.

LOOOVE the new GTI, but don't like the commercials where they destroy that one Focus, ugly as it was, lol.

Love the Civic Si, the S2K, and the JDM NSX-R (if I had to get a HondAcura model, it'd be the TL,)

i don't fit into cobalts, so i don't like them. some smarmy guy tried selling me a honda, so i associate cheap salespeople with them, so not so keen. but vw, man, despite those terrible commercials (produced by the same people that did the mini, btw) are just plain dumb. they look really good, old and new, imo. but whatever, this will just turn into a pissing match, so hopefully people just express opinions and don't talk crap about others.
Well, I'd love to stay and chat, but you're a total bitch.

No to cobalt,
Like the GTI
Love the Si...

This is not to be generalized to Honda, VW and Chevy in general.. I like VW, and dislike Honda and Chevy.. but the Si is a dream to drive..

for those that say they hate Honds and love the GTI, they musht have extreme hate for the interior design,deeply engraved bias against honda, or never drove the new Si... that thing is amazing... even compared to GTI..

•Well I like Honda's but not my favorite of the Japanese cars, love nissan but i guess im partial cause my mom has a g35x and that thing is the sex...
•Always been a fan of Euro cars and the new GTI is awesome, although I think the older GTI's looks better
•and the cobalt....well I actually like the looks of the cobalt but only the ss, the others look like crap. But I can't really talk about performance or ergonomics seeing how ive never drove or sat in one...and this is coming from a GM hater, I've been ford my whole life
