Haven't driven it yet but the Honda side at work has just PDI'd a few demo's. To be honest I think it looks awful compared to the 8th generation!!

They all arrived with dents in the bonnets which was also worrying!! What are the vertical fins below the rear lights all about? The master tech had to check each car over, I assumed he was PDIing them.

Not sure if the wrap covered them, I only work on the Jaguars, they were all about 4-6 inches from the rear edge of the bonnet though.

Cruise Control 9th Gen

Worth noting that unlike the 8th gen, the cruise doesn't cancel when depressing the clutch...

If it didn't disengage it would just red line the engine as soon as the clutch was depressed surely?

100% sure on the car I had straight out of the showroom with 20 miles on the clock. Give it a try in one of your cars Dan...

No, if you try this on the 8th gen it cancels out CC, try it on the 9th gen and the RPM drops to idle but CC stays engaged, so you could change gears without cancelling of CC. Seems odd or have I stumbled accross the first recall...

Been having a think about why the CC doest cancel when depressing the clutch, the only reason I can think of (if by design) would be so it can also deal with the Adjustable Speed Limiter (LIM)?

Strange. So theoretically, you could go from 0 to 70 without even touching the accelerator peddle....

My 2005 Laguna did the same and that had a speed limiter... so you could be right.

Does the CC cancel when pressing the clutch in the 8th Gen? I'll have to try on the way home lol

Either way, does not bother me, I love the CC. It's brilliant to have when I do the long drive to Slovakia from the UK.

My iShift Civic changes gear (auto or manual mode) without cancelling cruise. I think most autos do it this way. Essential really, because on hilly motorways it can't really maintain speed without it.

Thay's why I've never understood the point of manuals with cruise that cancel with gear change.

The manual (p 276) says "When engine speed slow down, try to downshift .
You can maintain the set speed if you change gear within fives seconds."
P 278 says to cancel cruise "depress the clutch pedal for five seconds or more".
This is one of five ways. Also cruise can be set from 19 to 124 mph.
