I think Mazda, which is owned by Ford is going down hill. Honda on the other hand, is selling like mad. Why? Superior quality, reliability and resale value.
I think you better do some homework before you post next time so you can save yourself from looking like an idiot...
Mazda is owned 33.4% by Ford, so what? Mazda had it's best sales year EVER in 2005, with their ever so popular sporty line-up. Mazda is also on pace to smash 2005's sales record as well. (www.mazdausa.com).
Where do you base your opinion that Mazda is going down hill? What info are you privledged that the rest of us are not to know this?
In terms of reliability and quality. I can disagree. I have owned Honda's in the past, and currently own a Mazda. No issues reported for either. Resale value? Currently the Mazda6, Mazda3 are right on pace in resale value with the Accord and Civic.
This is not a Honda Vs. Mazda thread, let's try to stay somewhat on topic.

Honda reliability, resale is so far above either Mazda or VW is it laughable. LMAO!

What is laughable is that someone actually believes that. I feel sorry for you.

Do you sell/buy or service/repair Honda's or Mazda's for a living? I do. I am around them every single day. Not just as an owner, but a retailer and service center.
I can go to the auction and get more money for a Mazda3 then the 2006 Civic, comparably equipped. Mazda6's and Honda Accords do roughly similar money.

some people would defend a Yugo if it had a Honda badge on the side.

Let's have the Honda conversations in Honda-related discussions, okay?

Pat, can we create a Mazdaspeed3 Vs. Honda Civic Si thread and have those posts transfered there?

"Pat, can we create a Mazdaspeed3 Vs. Honda Civic Si thread and have those posts transfered there?"
Why not just expand this one to be inclusive of all three (Speed3 vs. GTI vs. Si)? After all, it's been a while since any GTI fans were in here and that way our resident Civic Si fan can help keep this thread going.
Besides, something tells me that Edmunds just MIGHT have a 'hot hatch' comparo in the works and this place would be the perfect place to discuss it.

Yes, I know this is not a WRX thread, but, I thought I would post anyways...
The current issue of M/T does a comparo and the author states that Mazdaspeed3 won, convincingly.
