But I hope Honda also is able to be more competitive in F1. Where they are definitely lacking at this moment.

Yes, I know the cars are a bit bland and boring but still awesome cars overall. I'm really trying to get my parents to get a 2006 Civic Coupe (so I may drive it around )
Fast forward to 2018 and all qualities named above have been improved tremendously..from the engine capacities to the tires and the interior designs. i personally think they got the most comfortable leather seats in the industry today.

Funny enough, Hondas are still quite affordable..

The most important point is to save fuel, so it is more environmentally friendly.

Honda and Toyota vehicles often score well in studies carried out by J.D. Power and Consumer Reports, suggesting they are highly reliable. This makes a Honda or Toyota model a good choice for a used car, since these models usually have a lot of life left in them, even if they've already covered 100,000 miles or more.

Mu car has 277.131 miles (or 446.000km) and it for sure isn’t a Honda.

I doubt there are many high mileage Japanese / Asian cars in Europe. Or many Japanese / Asian cars at all, for that matter.

Is this because Europe is a mythical place where Volkswagens actually work?

no, this is because second hand Japanese cars are very popular in Africa (quality and sturdiness), so most of these have been shipped there.

It is!

No it's not. They break down as much as anywhere else.

Anyaway, of far more interest are the registration figures for 2018 for Western Europe (they come from ACEA).
  • Toyota Group -> 647k cars.
  • Japan (the rest of Japanese manufacturers combined) -> 1,150k cars (Nissan is 450k of those).
  • Hyundai Group ->903k cars.
To put that into perspective, the BMW Group sold 992k cars in Europe over the same period. The BMW brand alone (at 780k cars) outsold the entire Toyota Group. Daimler sold 937k cars in 2018 (Mercedes-Benz cars hit 839k units).

So, two theoretically prestigious, luxury premium brands outsold the mighty Toyota Group, the largest car manufacturer in the world*, in Europe.

(Nevermind giants such as VAG, over 3 million cars, PSA, over 2 million cars or Renault, almost 1.5 million cars)

No, after all those years it seems that Japanese / Asian cars are still not really popular in Europe...

*They still are the largest car maker in the world, aren't they?

To henk's point, is the second-hand market in (Western) Europe strong, or do the laws (and perhaps culture) favor new goods?

Apropos of nothing, I would like to include this picture I took as it amuses me.

I don't think the laws or culture favour new goods especially (although we never had this MY malarkey you had so, that's makes it even less likely). In any case, the figures suggest they are not being bought new either so...

PS. Nice Saratoga!
