  1. Love this reference to soul/performance:

    The thing I love about Honda is unlike Toyota, Honda puts a little bit of soul and performance into each car they build.

    The very first car ever made by Honda was a sports car, the Honda S500. Since then, a little bit of the S500 lives´╗┐ on in every car Honda has made. I have never driven a Honda vehicle that I didn’t like due to its handling or performance relative to its market.

    1. You know what, it’s not that often you can smile at the authentic passion/purpose of a company. I felt Honda gave us all some inspiring life lessons. As for that squeaky clutch (whilst annoying) it’s even more fasinating to ponder them knowingly addressing it over and over again, hungry to understand why.

    1. I’m a big believer in the “fail fast, succeed sooner” motto. So not denying that failure will happen, or indeed avoiding it, but saying lets fail as soon as possible and get to the good stuff quicker.
