Is it to much to hope we'll see decent Hondas being produced again?

(Is Automotive News great or what?)
A previous article mentioned the infamous 1.5L turbo fuel dilution problems. https://www.autonews.com/regulation-safety/honda-appears-weather-quality-issues

They should just put the 2020 Accord's hybrid powertrain (scaled up & down) in everything and be done with it. It eliminates 80% of transmission complexity, and only uses a small 1.3 kWH Li-ion battery (compare to typically 60+ kWH in EVs). No turbo required, as electric motor torque handles giddy-up. Hybrids have unlimited range. High MPG, low emissions for the future. Negotiate with big world cities for the right to drive clean hybrids like that downtown, and you're good to go. Done. I've just solved all Honda's problems between 2022-2040.

Sorry Honda, never will we buy another. Engine block porosity, really. Needs a new engine. Transmission blows a RTV seal. Rebuilt transmission as not willing to reseal. Both sliding doors failed. Axial play in camshaft takes out the position sensors. Dishonest dealer. Nope, never another Honda

There's nothing wrong with the 1.5T. Most TGDI engines have fuel dilution issues and they still live a long time.

When my 2015 Pilot with 25000 miles gave me trouble dealership and other thought I was making it up. But this article and an independent shop proved other wise

I love Honda but the company's been resting on its laurels for a while now. Hopefully, it will return to its former glory.

Interesting. Mazda has eclipsed Honda in quality and design IMO. They don't appear to be what they once were. Still solid, but they need some improvements.

Mazda makes great looking but uncomfortable vehicles. Have you sat in a Cx-5 or M6? Where do you put your arms? All style, no comfort. Also, no touch screen? Seriously?

Best looking interiors that rival more expensive models, great fuel economy and trouble free GDI engines (2.0L & 2.5L). Underpowered but reliable.

And arguably the best new AWD system on the market.

My arm goes on the arm rest. The touchscreen works if you are stopped. If you are playing with the touchscreen then you shouldn’t be driving. The Commander knob works very well
