In your opinion who makes better cars, Toyota or Honda?

In your opinion who makes better cars, Toyota or Honda?
A Friend of mine got Toyota Camry. It has more than 170K miles on it. He said nothing broke so far. I am considering my next car to be Toyota or Honda
Thanks,

That's a tough cookie. They both make great reliable cars. It all comes down to styling and lately, I haven't been feeling Toyota's new looks. Even today's Acura's look better than the Lexus'.

Both are just as good, but if I had my choice of a higher milage car, id get a toyota. Too many kids buy honda's and beat on them. I got my honda after it was leased, and it was once sold as a certified vehicle, so I had no worries there.

I know someone whos engine seized in his Acura Integra around 90,000 miles. But I also know of people whos Hondas and Toyotas lasted well over 200,000 miles, even into the 300,000 mile mark. Overall, though, since the Supra is no more I hand it to Honda. Toyota just bores me to tears as a company. Their only "sport"-ish car is the Celica. I hate the Celica. Whereas Honda has the new Civic Si, NSX, S2000, RSX, etc. Something for everyone.

Honda for the win.

It doesn't, but he needed to say something so that others will think he has a valid opinion.

To answer the OP's question, I personally prefer Hondas but form a professional standpoint Toyotas generally go farther with less mechanical repairs, regardless of the age of the driver. Except for the oddball POS, you can't really go wrong with either of them.

P.S. I hope you all realize that this thread will be deleted as soon as a mod comes along and takes care of the spamming OP.

P.P.S. We also don't know "better" for what.

As far as reliablility goes, JD Power (I think that's the company that does those surveys) says Toyotas and Lexuses are more reliable, but Honda's pretty high too. And I think Toyotas and Lexuses are boring and ugly, I'd go with Honda (or Acura). Especially the TL
