Was waking through London Waterloo this morning and did my usual Wednesday morning trip thro WH Smiths and thought I'd flick thro this weeks edition of Autocar and what do I find but an 8,500 mile update report on their Civic 2.2CDTi-ES !!!
From my quick glance they didn't like the economy they were getting from the diesel (38mpg as mentioned above but I got the impression they were giving it a fair bit of stick and they liked it as a drivers car), rear visibility, poor interior material quality (velour picks up dust etc, and surfaces pick up scratched easily) - both of which members have commented on. They did like the diesel engine itself and, being an ES, the standard glass roof. Can't remember the rest but I'll probably pick up a copy to read on my journey home and come back to you lot this evening.
Anyway hope people find this useful.
