You are in the Honda Civic
What is this discussion about?
Nissan Sentra, Honda Civic, Car Comparisons, Sedan

Makes building a better car impossible, if in fact nobody listened to criticism.
I guess that vehicle is perfect, if your ideals hold true. There are no negatives, so you can't improve on it.

no, it does make sense. i was pointing out that if you hear anything with regards to the cars potential weaknesess, you'll totally tune it out. It has nothing to do with you being a nissan guy, it has to do with improving a car and accepting its flaws, but also knowing its good points and not thinking its perfect.
Read graduates post. it sums it up.

All right, we're turning this into a discussion of each other instead of the cars. Let's not do that.

I never actually said the Sentra is perfect, in fact no car is perfect say for an M3 lol but seriously every car has flaws, these cheapness of interiors and such claims are completely unfounded. C&D have become spoiled they get to drive $100,000 cars and get very bitchy when not so expensive cars aren't lined with titanium or some other very expensive material. I've never actually had a weakness with my Spec V knock on wood. It's always ready willing and able, I intend on taking excellent care of it. It was part of a unique configuration they did for one model year only. The only problem I had with it was the latch on the console lid's spring was defective. I had it fix without any other problems and it wasn't that big of a deal in general but it was otherwise conventient to have it fixed.

first of all, the quality of the interior materials and reliability are two different things.
if the fact that the reviewers get to drive 100k cars around influnces their opinions on the lack of flair of low end cars...wouldn't that mean that EVERY car that competes against the sentra would be subject to the same harsh treatment?
I wonder why they arent' then huh?

It does influence their opinion. They who become spoiled ridicule very easily.

I struggle to see how they ridicule selectively, as you seem to be implying.
Yes, they (editors/writers) find faults in vehicles. Its their job.

ofcourse it does. but i'm not disputing that.
ill type it in a more understandable way;
if they (the reviewers) get to drive amazing cars ALL THE TIME, it would influcence their opinion ALL THE TIME.
what does that mean?
bascially that ANY car that is not a supercar or cost 100k would get scrutinized and put down, not just the sentra.
BUT....thats not what happens. And there goes your theory out the window.
