Well, at least in the US,

Well, at least in the US, Japan, and most of the world, higher demand = higher prices, because of capitalism and supply and demand economics. In any case, I think the fact that Honda has so many options that your altima does not makes honda builds very interesting.

Supply and Demand II

What you didn't figure into the equation is supply. High demand with low supply = High Prices (Nissan stuff). High Demand with High supply (more competition) is cheaper (Honda stuff -- because they're better cars, more people are manufacturing parts for them).

At any rate, C-888 ditch the Altimus and get a Honda. Once you go H, you never go back, right SVOboy, Matt?

I've never gone anything but

I've never gone anything but H, but I don't see why I wouldn't buy a different brand if it was better quality.

Reasonable assumption. Toyota is of better "quality", statistically, but there are other factors to consider: driveability, economy, comfort, etc. Once all of my requirements are found in another manufacturer, I'd buy if I need to. So far, I don't see anything in the pipeline during the next 5-years that would rip me away from Honda.

As pointed out, you're forgetting the factor of competition. Competition will drive the price down. COmpetition breeds better technology and lower overhead. As a result better (or cheaper) products come out and in order for a company to stay in business they have to lower prices.

While their marginal profit will decline with lower profits, they make upfor it in quantity.

It's the nature of the free-market beast. High demand will yield cheaper prices as long as supply is high.

Ah, I suck, I had just

Ah, I suck, I had just always figured honda stuff was so cheap because it wasn't very good. Such as my free coilovers or free d15b8 engine.

I might just get another car and keep the altima. it's sometimes good to own an auto incase you go to a party and have to haul people around/talk on a cell phone, and etc.
