The dealer final got my car to land yesterday
On the whole farly happy with it, pitty about the badly kerbed alloy and the missing studio pack but so far, the funs just flying long
Few bits ive found thats not as i hoped (may be just me but any help would be super
The hft dont like my samsung d500 much keeps doing weard thing on it like when i try to end a call the phone says not allowed and i have to end the call myself, when i want to dial a number it take 2-3 atampts to get thought the phone just dial then nearly stright away hang up.
Also when it dark outside and u turn the key off everything goes dark and you cant see anything so u either look for the light switch or open the door, not like my 307 were u turn the key off the custory light comes on so u can find your stuff , the door handel etc u get the idea , it was raining so i found the light switch in the end got mt stuff in my hand and got out the car and unlike the 307 when i lock the doors the light must have stayed on because 1-2 hours later i went out to walk the dog and there was this faint light on in the car and it was the custory light i had put on was not impressed
good way to flaten battery ,why dont it turn off when you lock the car ? you dont need it on when outside the car. Anyone had trouble getting sat singals for speed camer detectors?
ive seen some here , my problem is ive tryed 2 diffent makes and both take ages or fail to get signal anywere on dash,
anyone got detctor with laser sensors in it , put it next to sat nav screen when its on it goes loopy
laser alerts ,camera alerts etc but only when its right next to screen bit strange
, but apart from these so far and being annoyed everytime i look in the rear view mirror and see that spolier there i think yer thats really spoiled a good rear window , why did u do it honda ??????????
wiperless rear i could have learned to accept but puting the spoiler there is just daft
So my review so far ends like this .
front and side looks very good
rear looks ok would be lot better if they droped or raised spoiler off the window. Room inside super had two 6 footers in back and they were supriseded how much head leg room etc. Boot space is super best i have seen on simar size car. The looks inside very nice even better with studio pack. The drive is very good , nice smouth ride not easy knocked off couses by crap road , seems to corner well (will try it out on roads to work at the weekend but so far very good
) maybe slightly over powerd steering but makes for easy low speed movements, mirrors very good can see well out of them just need to know what behind me
And on to the best bit the motor and gearbox WOW! does it shift or what any gear any revs u put your foot down and it goes like poo of a shovel, its the first 6 speeder ive driven so rembering and finding 6th can be hard at times but im sure ill get the hang of it, very nice posative gear box and sweet change , clutch ok fells better than the jelly of the 307 let hope it lastes longer
also very impressed by the fit and finish of the car, best doors ive have used in a long while so easy to open and close. Unlike the pug the dask plastics fit well and couldnt hear any rattles or sweaks, how long it will stay quiet i dont know hopfuly a long time, so im not making a sweak list
.The technolgy sime good really like the sat nav pitty the poi issuse
, i could find lots of poi but not as many as there really is like the nearist tesco, lloydstsb , over 100 miles of the tsb and 80 miles for the tesco or 3 and 5-6 miles in real life
. I was pleasently suprised by the audio systems good sound I thought because lots of u said it was crap, I was in for some crap sounding dance music but me and my 3 friends tested about 25-30 cds of diffent music and couldnt fault it really. (im not into very heary dance or lourd bass pounding music just normal level pop dance etc ) Another super job is done by the headlights in the dark they spread a good distance and wide angel of vison, good in front of the car , but as said before they come on to early when it gets dark and coming on when u turn to postion 2 is annoying but liveable. I think thats about it or all i can think of
(is there anyone still awake after reading this long post sorry.
I give the civic after 36 hours of ownership a 8 out of 10 i think . good effort but could have done better. Let hope after 36 months i still say 8 or better
(silly spolier and non painted wheel arch covers and the way honda's done some good touch then let the side down to save a few £££ for not much more i think we could have been alot more happyer if they had gone all the rest of the extra mile not just the extra 950 meters ie mp3 socket key less start better sat nav maybe even a dvd drive that could play movies and a few other bits pepole have mensioned before, I dont know about you but I would have paid another £1-2k for a totaly super car that the civic could have been, would u ???)
