I never heard so much complaining about a vehicle on the forum for that vehicle. I spent big money on a new 2019 Ford Ranger Lariat and ended up with fuel dilution so bad I had to trade it in because Ford couldn't fix it and then called it normal. A quart of fuel in the oil was normal . No problems with my 2022 RTL .FORD SUCKS?!!

I think many people are frustrated because Honda used to be one of the most reliable brands on the market. These days, they're average to just above average at best overall with some models like the ones coming out of Honda Manufacturing of Alabama being below average.

It's not that Honda's quality is "bad", but it used to be so much better so expectations are high. The best have gotten worse and the worst have gotten better resulting in the gap between the most and least reliable automobiles getting smaller.

The 6-speed in my '19 Miata is easily as good or better than anything Honda has ever offered.
There is a reason why a 2000 Honda S2000 with 150K miles sells for more then its new msrp at $30,000 and a Miata can be found for under $5K. One of those reasons is that it has one of the best 6 speed manuals ever created by man. You ever driven in one? I've owned 3 myself and my current roadster is a 2016 BMW Z4 35i with a Dinan tune up to 350hp.

Ditto on the S2000 - had two and rowing through the gears plus kicking in the VTEC was almost as good as sex:).

There's also the fact that the S2000 sold just 50,229 units in the US vs. Miata's 389,000. Certainly a much rarer bird.

My 21 is assembled pretty well. No rattles or leaks, paint ok. Panel gaps ok. The plastic cover below the sterling could fit a little better. No mechanical issues but only 8K.
No matter what I'm convinced it will beat my previous 14 RAM 1500 which could malfunction even while parked.
