10G 1litre Is everybody Happy with them

As above just wondering if everybody is happy with their purchase, I don't hear of anybody having problems with the clutch like on the 1.5.

May I ask are you happy with your's. The reason (apologies for deflecting your thread) is that a few on here have commented adversly a little on the match of the cvt with the 1 litre engine. Thanks !

Im happy with mine. I got a 1.0 SR model in Manual gearbox. Havent had any problems so fat apart from the parking sensor issue. For a 1.0, it picks up speed nicely. But in terms of fuel efficiency, its not as good as I expected.

I can not fault the CVT on my car very responsive the pickup is amazing for a 1litre in fact I can not fault the car at all the handling and brakes are spot on pound for pound it is one of the best cars I have ever owned that includes the likes of BMW Audi VW I have been fortunate enough to be able to buy what I wanted.

Must admit, if I could stretch to the auto I'd have one coupled to the 1.0 litre. I was very impressed when I drove one, smooth, made a nice sound, and even could spin wheels.

Bodes really well ! Really do fancy the 1 litre engine and the Mrs has to have an auto. When the times right for us (cash flow !) I'll be looking at that car. Cheers.

I had a slight clutch vibration on my 1.5ltr when it was new.

Slight vibration when pulling away in first gear, but it went away after the car had covered 500 miles. Assumed the clutch was bedding in.

Now on 8000 miles and no problems at all.

We had clutch judder which did reduce but was still there long story short new clutch and flywheel was fitted due to it being contaminated with the rust marks from the clutch plate rivets etc. Its been ok sinse tho

Is clutch judder noticeable? I have a 1.5 and sometimes come off the clutch too quick which causes a slight judder but if I release it slower I have no issues.

Overall I think it's fine as it doesn't happen with every shift it's just my shoddy driving

I think that most people that are having the problem is when pulling away from rest .

Cant say my 1.5 does and to be honest if it did or does develop its still a far better engine than the 1.0 litre in my opinion. Plenty of power and flexability whilst good on fuel.

A far better engine it maybe but at the moment it as far more problems with it than the 1.0 the rev hang the clutch judder on some and there is a lot on recall for engine Oil dilution at the moment I know it is a good engine after test drove several of them.

All engines have problems and the 1.0 litre is no shrinking violet, there have been reports of turbo problems and engines throwing rods. Plus the 1.0 litre has a timing belt and from what I understand is super expensive when it comes to replacement. The oil dilution occurs on all DI engines and these were my i intial fears but it is easily managed with oil changes every 5k which coincidently is what I personally carry out on all my cars. Rev hang, cant say I noticed it and to be honest I thpught it was part of Hondas ecu programming, something to do with gear changes?

When I was looking, I tested the 1.6l diesel then the 1l petrol. The petrol was slightly more powerful & had lower emissions so went with that.

The 1.0 litre is fantastically engineered imo.

I would agree with this but IMO it is not for a car the size of a Civic, I had one all day the other week and did around 70 miles in it on mixed A & B roads and honestly its a gutless piece of %^&% that was no better on fuel than the wife's 1.5 while not being as refined.


Sorry very harsh but this is only my opinion and has nothing to do with me driving the Type R as I am more than happy driving my wife's 1.5.


I suspect a lot of my thoughts on this are due to the low down growl and unrefined balance of the 3pot lump when pulling away from a standing start compared to a 4 pot engine which are a lot better balanced and smoother.

The 1.5 is far better.


I echo @RickHondaR 's comment about it being gutless. Its quite noisy too.


The 1.5 is simply better in every way.
