I wouldn't say never, as we once had nothing but them, but Honda. I think they have a unique culture and what it takes to be the best carmaker in the world (not necessarily the biggest).

I like nearly everything about them except the cars they now make. The history is excellent. The really hot Hondas gave the common man a taste of the feel of a racing car for pennies. Oh, the engines, i guess there is a reason why they make the most internal combustion engines on the planet.
