We're a Honda family as well. Read post #6 for the reason. Two of the daughters have Civics. The son-in-law drives an Accord. We recently traded a 1997 Accord with over 210,000 miles on the odometer in on a 2013 Fit. Except that we took the dealer's advice and put it on Craig's List at double the quoted trade in value just for sh*ts and giggles to see what happened.
I had 27 calls on it. The third guy to look at it handed me cash for the asking price while a 4th guy was waiting his turn and a 5th was on his way over to look . . . all within the first 30 hours after it hit Craig's List.
All except the Fit were built in America. I'm actually old enough to remember that once upon a time, America produced that kind of quality and we laughed at the Japanese.

Yup. Now, the domestic makes have barely half of their own market, and that's assuming you count Fiat owned Chrysler as a domestic brand.
