Yes. They have, along with Acura.
That doesn't mean they won't be profitable enterprises, it just means they are pursuing new business paths maybe for better, maybe for worse.
Hyundai is the new toyota?
I would also say a lot of companies are living off of reputations built in the late 80s and 90s, bmw mb.

I enjoyed my time in the Honda CR-Z. Probably the most futuristic car I've ever driven. Needs more power though.
Project "BONES" Speed Lab:
Valentine One, Blinder M47 "All Front Configuration"
Pro97 Police Scanner
1 Saves / 3 Strikes as of 8/22/2009
Estimated saves in U.S. Dollars: $200
Losing their footing absolutely. The new Acura designs are awful. Probably getting a TL or TSX in a few months, 2008 is the last buyable year of acuras.
Honda has lost so much respect from me for losing the idea behind their motto. "The power of dreams" - right. Get rid of the NSX, S2000, and RSX/Integra and you're sure satisfying the dream. Good job honda - way to throw out the enthusiast and only work for a quick dollar. Its so upsetting.
I personally think the last truly amazing car from Honda was the Integra Type R DC2. I've dreamt of having one.
A lot of american companies are turing themselves around and heading in the right direction in my eyes, but I don't find it fair they used my tax money to do it. Companies like BMW are still amazing to me for the elegance they pursue, but I can see where people are dissapointed with them as well. The original M3's were street legal versions of the race cars, while current M3's have too many bells and whistles. Kinda makes me think of this top gear episode...

My mom once had an early 90s accord, and turned in for a Lexus. That car ran FOREVER and ran perfectly and was sporty...
The Civic we have now is sporty to some degree and has been fantastically reliable, but its age is starting to show with 90k miles. All the fabrics look worn, some seal gaskets are torn, and some buttons are going clear from being pushed every day. Plus, you put brakes on them every 30k, no matter how you drive it.
They need to bring back the prelude, I loved that car
My accord now has about 98K and it hasn't had a single issue, doesn't burn a drop of oil and still gets 28mpg mostly highway driving. No quality issues that I can notice, but it definitely is somewhat boring in styling and features.
