I'm not a big toyota or honda fan, because my wife had a 91 corrolla before the jetta, and it was nothing but problem after problem, and the car was the most basic car I have ever seen. We dropped a lot of money into the crap box.
My Uncle had a prelude, and the engine had to be replaced.
So far from experience, I have had 5 VWs and no issues.
The Land Rover is a sweet vehicle, but it has already been in the shop like 3 times so they could figure out why the damn cd changer wouldn't work.
I think in that case it was an incompetant service staff.
Nothing is cooler than having your car talk to you though.
