Im noticing all the current sedans at the dealers are made in japan...
I know that when new models r released, so many hundred r built in japan, then they are made in the us...
Do u guys have any input to why the ones built in japan r rumored to be a better car?
AND
2nd part is, do u guys think that when the si is released, so many of those will also be built in japan?

I do have to say, my friend has a 03 japanese v6 accord,
i have a 04 american v6 accord.
His car has had 2 minor issues.
Mine on the other hand has had.. jus to name a few.
Sagging pillars, non-closing sunglasses holder, crinkled exterior window trim, creaking roof, creaking rear seat, and I had to HAVE my whole nav system replaced cuz the reader didnt work right....
Not to say his car is perfect, but in all the issues i mentioned he hasnt had a problem with any of those...

Makes me wonder...

the japanese have a better quality control system
The US and Canada are trying to catch up but aren't quite there yet
if you have a choice I would choose the Japanese model and I work in automotive manufacturing

yes i saw that too brand new cars are made in japan 100 percent almost which is cool
i would say if you can get a hold of a japanese made one before is too late go ahead and do it.
