2004 marks the first time that Japanese car brands (Toyota, Honda, etc.) made up for more than 30% of the US car market. I've been a Japanese car (more specifically Honda/Acura) fan since my first Honda in 1990 and am now on my 3rd (a 2004 Acura TSX). Why do I love these cars so much? Simple - quality. I have yet to drive a North American car that was as fun to drive as mine. While I owned my Accord (1992-2004), I kept a record of all maintenance costs over the 12 years I had it and it worked out to $1077 per year. That includes all preventive maintenance like oil changes and includes tires.
