Japanese people have always been more "protective" people. When you look in the parking lot of the "Honda" factory, you'll only see honda car.
If you happen to look in US car factory (either GM or Ford) you'll see a lot of Japanese car as well.
Totally different reasons, its not because they're protective their car company/brand. Japanese people are generally a lot more 'honourable' than western people. If you worked at GM and drove a Honda, what is that saying about GM? That one of their own workers aren't confident or don't like their own cars? In Japan, if someone from Honda drove a Toyota they would get fired (or at least they did about 20 years ago, don't know about now) because it says a lot about Honda if their employees don't believe in their own product.
