Statistically, Toyotas are known as the most reliable cars (save for a bad batch in 2007-2009). They often carry a premium because of this.































That being said, Hondas are unquestionably more fun to drive.































From a sheer practicality standpoint, the Toyota is the better choice. Here, in Vancouver, every Taxi is a Toyota, and if Cabbys are buying 'em, that says a lot.

both are about the same. the honda is more fun because honda uses v-tec. Not all the valve springs are used unless the car is being driven hard.

Reliability is about the same, but the Honda is a much more fun car.

You also should compare car insurance quotes for cars before buying one, for example here - carinsurance.yoll.net
