Have some of you shtik-dreks ever driven an Acura TSX? It's a very well-sorted car that would definitely be on my short-list if I were looking for a compact sports sedan. It handles sharply, looks sharp, and has a sharp interior. Much more than I can say for any of GM's soggy offerings (Saab 9-3 aside; and even it has issues...).

Let the bottom-feeders shlep around in heaps like the Pontiac G6, and leave the real cars to those who can appreciate a good car.

And for those unaware, I really hate Hondas. Somethin' fierce. But I loved the Acuras TL and TSX. Unlike many of our GMI brethren, whose testicles don't seem to have yet fully descended, some of us have the maturity and intelligence to put aside stupid notions such as bias, and appreciate a good car for being a good car.

Isn't hating Hondas a bias, considering they are well regarded vehicles?
You clearly have no grasp of the meaning of "bias". Bias implies a hatred (in this case) of something based on nothing tangible. I tangibly hate Honda cars. They're ugly, pigs to drive, not as reliable as people think and are absurdly overrated. If they were attractive, drove well, were more interesting than a spoon, and not as troublesome, then I'd like them.

Unlike these "GM-fan" retardapes, I like cars for the car itself, not for the badge on the hood or because it was assembled in the state I live in...

In fact I find it impossible to be biased towards a product because of something a trivial as its brand name. Save that sort of retarded thinking for the rabble of morons that pollute these forums. Those of us capable of intelligent thought don't bother with such childish practice.

I find it so odd that the people crying the loudest about "bias" are THE most biased themselves. "GM fans" aren't car fans. Not by a long mile. They're "GM" fans. GM could build toilet plungers, and these idiots would be just as foaming-at-the-mouth about it, talking about how GM toilet plungers are so much better than a Toyota Camry.

In fact I'm so beyond sick of it, I'm losing interest in this place at a rapidly-waning rate.

My singular function on this forum is to expose automotive bias at the journalistic level as I see it, t-rex. I'm not going to come here and expose an individual's bias towards a car manufacturer; I'm going to come here and expose the car magazine's bias.
Car and Driver is currently on my hit-list. Tomorrow, it may be Consumer Reports.
I agree with you one thing! Car & Driver being on a (s)hit-list!

I quite liked the TSX. I just reckoned because I'm such a g-d picky mo'fo that it must actually be a good car! Since I hate just about everything else!!

Oh and you'll never hear me argue that US car rags, erm, mags (which I refuse to read more because they're written on the level of a 6th grader than because of any other reason) aren't absurdly biased. How a heap like the Honda Accord (I own one... trust me, it's a festering pile of steaming....well you know) makes their "Top 10" list for decades on end. Ugh. It's impossible to bear.

I was more attacking these morons who just blatantly like or dislike a product based on the brand, not the car itself. While I can't say I'm a "fan" of any particular car company, some companies, such as Mazda and Subaru, have mostly made cars I'd consider buying, whereas others, like GM and Toyota, have never fielded anything I'd consider even looking at (Olds Aurora excepted!).

Attacking the "kool-aid" crowd if you will, be it GM, Honda, or whatever flavour...
