Has anyone here ever owned Japanese made car?I have,it was a 1993 Mitsubishi Dimante and I loved it.I had it for only 9 months when it broke down.We searched high and low for the part and could never find it.This sucked big time especially because my husband bought me this as a Valentines gift that year.I am now considering buying another Japanese car,mainly because of the price.(I am cheap,lol).What do you think?Do you have one?Do you have any trouble with yours?What make car is it?

I don't own a Japanese car but I do own a Japanese motorcycle. I'm in the process of restoring it. It's a 1975 Honda CB400 F. Everyone that has had one says they're fantastic bikes. They pur like kittens and run smooth. I can't wait til it's running.

Hey neelygal, how's it going? I have a Toyota Rav4 which I think is a really great car or mini-suv or whatever they call it. It's a 1997 and I've had it for about 8 years and it still runs pretty good. I haven't had any major problems with it. I'd buy another Rav the next time I buy a car.

I haven't owned one but if it is reasonably priced and gets good gas mileage i would have no problem buying one!

Even if when it broke down you wouldnt be able to find the parts to fix it?

I own a Toyota Vios and my previous car was also a Japanese made. I had no problem at all to get the parts. Whenever I had problems, I just make an appointment with the nearest Toyota Service Center and after a few weeks, everything is back to normal. So far I think Japanese made is quite impressive and I really enjoy driving it.

I have never owned a Japanese car- how would you repair this one though if you struggle to find the parts for it? x
