Just been back from my test drive of the Type S GT (Petrol)
We were able to take it out for a hour without the Dealer with us which was really nice because on all the other cars I have test driven just lately someone always has to come out with you and I find that it puts me off a bit as my driving is under scrutiny
Anyway, this was my first ever time driving a Honda and I really liked it, the gearbox was smooth and a joy to use, the climate control was nice and cold evan after 1hr as I know through having a good read of the posts on this site that it can be an issue.
The petrol cap worked
..there was a rattle from the rear which turned out to be the back seat not clicked back into postion from being folded down. The black dash had a few faint scratches, that was the first thing I noticed.
The quick right look over your shoulder when pulling out to another lane is not that good, I'm used to seeing a clear view from the side windows and this was a minus point against the car, that and from my seat postion the top of the middle section of readouts ( rev counter) was obscured by the top of the steering wheel. However I should imagine that I would soon adjust to a better seat postion if I bought the car.
One thing I have decided on that is it won't be a GT spec, I'm not keen on the glass roof and the Sun just pinged in and annoyed me when the blind was opened, the cruise control I know I wouldn't use ( something about a car that can drive itself! worries me..Herbie all over agian LOL, but thats just me I'm afraid
)..so it would be a the normal Type S spec.
I will take the Deisel version out at some point and do them both back to back for comparaison. ATM I'm in no rush to make a final decsion until the end of May
This site though is great for info, forarmed is forwarned
