You know what. My family has owned a lot of cars too. But just 'cause you own a lot of cars literally means jack. There are thousands of other cars out there of the same model having different problems or success. The real way of knowing whats good overal is by talking to mechanics. My neighbor owns a dealership and I talk to him a lot and I am friends with lots of his mechanics. They service everything from Honda, VW, Jeep, Nissan, and many more. From their opinions they see the Japanese autos come in more often at a lower mileage with some problems.
