Japanese automaker that makes very reliable and affordable daily drivers, family cars, and econo-boxes. Commonly mistaken by domestic owners to be the pinnacle of Japanese performance engineering, and therefore is used as "proof" that American cars are somehow superior to imports.
Domestic owner: Dude my Yenko Camaro just totally smoked that Honda Civic!
Import owner: And my Blitz Skyline can drive circles around a Ford Pinto. You don't see me bragging about it.
