I was in San Antonio last week watching my son swim in the US Jr. College Championships. I hadn’t stayed in a hotel for quite some time. But, every morning a was delivered to my door.

Indeed there is some good and useful information that comes to us in print form, eh?

There was an article about consumer reports’ choice of the best cars.

The Best Small Sedan  – Japanese Honda Civic.

The Best Family Sedan – Japanese Honda Accord

The Best Upscale Sedan – Japanese Acura TL

The Best Luxury Sedan – Japanese Infiniti M35

The Best Small SUV – Japanese Subaru Forester

Does anybody notice a pattern here?:

The Best Midsize SUV – Japanese Toyota Highlander Hybrid

The Best Minivan – Japanese Honda Odyssey.

Yep, there definitely is a pattern here.

The Best Green Car – Japanese Toyota Prius

The Most Fun to Drive – Japanese Subaru Impreza WRX/STi


The  Best Pickup – Japanese Honda Ridgeline.

The pattern is…the Japanese make the best cars in the world, hands down. Tha’t what I think?

What do you think?

I drive a Toyota Corolla. My wife drives a Honda CRV and my son drives the new Honda Civic.

What’s in your garage?

    After having worked with a number of Japanese students, I can say that I’ve seen a superior work ethic in them as compared to many American-born students, so I can’t say that I’m surprised that their products are better built and exhibit superior performance compared to American made. It seems to seem that American companies would be wise to imitate the Japanese if they’re to stay competitive in the global marketplace. Lisa

    Hey Lisa,
    Thanks for dropping by.

    I have to agree with yuo that Japanese products are tops.

    There is a lot we can learn from the Japanese.
