I live 20 minutes north of the Alliston, Ontario plant. I know they have an engine plant on site, but not which engine they make (they do make all the Civics though)

Except all the hatch backs, those are made in Swindon England.

hahaha.

Well those british cars were designed in the UK. The civ hatch/type r was designed in japan, and made in the swindon plant, same place as this bad bitch:

So in my mind it's an honor!

All the Coupes and Si's are made in Alliston. Sedans are also made in Greensburg, Indiana. All Hatchbacks are made in Swindon UK.

(I live in Alliston and used to work at Honda Logistics. Still know a bit cause both me and my wife work at other Honda suppliers)

I actually thought UK assembly was a positive...

Hmm... Now which of these brands are renowned for epic reliability? lol

Not knocking the Swindon plant, but really, every single one of those brands come with a connotation not so great in terms of service.

Service and reliability are mainly how the manufacturer does business and designs the vehicles, not where it was assembled.

Definitely Landrover! A 95 Camry's got nothing on a Landrover! :D

But in all seriousness, when I got my VIN# from the dealer to get my car insured for the pickup day I was surprised to see the VIN was "SHHsomethingsomething", asked the sales guy, where the hell is this thing made?! The hatches are still designed and engineered with Honda goodness in them and they're just assembled in Swindon. THIS IS WHAT I KEEP TELLING MY SELF ANYWAY.

The 1.5T/2.0T powertrains were designed in Japan with all components/materials specified there. For USDM units, they are all manufactured in Anna, OH. Sedan and coupe production can be found in multiple locations, depending on trim. The Si, for example, is made in Canada.
