I agree with that. Soft paint on a Japanese car rather than mediocre German reliability for me as well.

My car is 13 years old and 112,000 miles with its soft paint.

You don't get both with a VW either, and those are not exactly cheap,  never really had any problems with paint on any of the Honda cars I have had, and never had to spend any money on repairs - just normal consumables despite large mileages.  I am not exactly fussy about polishing my cars,  had the DiamondBrite treatment done and the rain washes and polishes them for me and i spent nothing on polish and wax,  just use AutoGlym super resin polish on the plastic headlight covers every month or so to stop them yellowing ( great for PVC window frames as well). After my family and friends experiences ( and expenses) with VAG cars I will stick to Japanese and risk the thin paint. 

As I said paint is only for decoration on modern cars as the panels are all Zintec electro-zinc plated.

Talking of VW's woes, today I saw a Y reg Golf. Whatever VW do now, they certainly knew how to build them back in the early 80's. Especially Polos. There are a ton of old Polos still on the road. I don't know if it was the fact that Golfs were young men's cars - and got thrashed - whereas Polos were old men's cars - and survived. A bit like the early Jazz.

We have the jazz And a polo, the jazz mainly for Mrs. LJ. Our present jazz is the Mk2 with cvt, which is excellent.
We previously had two Mk1s, both a bit troublesome.
The VW is mine, although this new polo with 1.2 TSI engine is terrific the engine is a gem pulling strongly from 1500 rpm all the way to 3500 rpm and is better on fuel than the jazz, In fact Mrs. LJ has started to use it now!!
My enthusiasm for VW started 52 years ago and I have owned 14 alltogether over this time with no major problems.
In fact the very first one gave the most trouble, the engine dropped a valve, which was a common occurance on the air cooled engines. I was otherwise very impressed with the build quality and stayed with VW after all.
I ran the VW transporter for my job in the heating trade and had really trouble free service, they stand up to all sorts of use and abuse. I have lost count of the number of times other lads phoned to say they cannt get to the job because either their vans either will not start or have broken down! I do not think a Honda vehicle of that type ( if they made one ) would stand up to the type of use our VWs had
Nice reving engines they have but the VW is the better all round product, in my humble opinion based on the above.

The best engine I have driven for a long time is the 1.4 boosterjet engine in my brothers Suzuki Vitara, great torque from just above tickover to about 4500 revs, but above that the engine still great ( not there is normally much reason to go above that though ).  I have a Civic 1.8 I-vtec and that is also a peach.  IMHO  VW are living on past reputation, German cars in general no longer come out well in reliability and overall running cost stats.
