Not faults, but irritations that would be nice fixed for the next MY:

AUX in
The Jazz has somewhere for your mp3 player - why not the Civic?

Manual dash brightness
A light sensor to automatically adjust the brightness would be nice.

Window off switch
Should leave the windows controllable by the driver.

Windows up with key fob button press
Just like the VAG cars.

Electric mirrors
Option to have them move in and out with the door locks.

Bassworks
Should be adjustable by the owner.

Any others?

Windscreen wipers automatically work with washers
If stationary the Auto wipers don't work with the screen wash (on mine anyway!)

Why do you want the doors to lock - do you expect to get carjacked?

Mate, I live in London and the number of people I know who have had stuff taken from back seat etc while at traffic lights is remarkable. Not so long ago a lady was carjacked 500 yards from my house, and I live in a posh (I like to think so) part of Epsom Downs. Don't joke, it's a good idea, BMW thinks so. :wink:

That reminds me, just off to Tooting now so next years model.......bullet proof windows :shock:

Audible confirmation blip when central locking remotely applied & folding key (flick knife style) as per Mazda range would be nice

One push on the fob to open driver's door only, second push to open all the doors (ford focus - first model) it was an excellent safety feature.

I'd like to have the display screen from an EX available without the need for Sat Nav. The LCD one isn't a great when you can only see the first twenty or so characters of a track (without pressing buttons). It would also allow for a rear camera.

Couple of things I think Honda could learn from my old Alfa 147:

Electronics "active" for a few seconds after turning off the ignition
Lots of functions remain active for a few seconds (30?) after removing the key, so you can pull up windows, open the boot, switch the stereo back on (which stays on, so you can run off with the keys but keep the wife happy with a bit of Robbie Williams 'til you get back), etc. In particular, I'd love the retracting wingmirrors on my EX to continue retracting after I've shut down... it's only a couple of seonds, but it's annoying. This feature also allows the Alfa to offer...

"See you home" headights
Headlights turn off when you turn the ignition off, but pulling the light stalk towards you (ie flash full-beam) brings them back on temporarily, for 30 seconds per pull. Great for letting me see my way from my driveway to my door without treading on all the snails that lurk out there...

NON ROTATIONAL GEAR KNOB!!!!

How about a gear knob that doesn't need tightening up, post sale! :roll:

Mark - just keep turning it till it's tight! It won't break (he says....)

Give it a go today, while the weather is so poor (worst morning I've seen in Faro in ages - what's going on?)

:p :p It was a dodgy start to the day, but now there ain't a cloud in the sky!!!

My car reckons that it's 28 degrees outside - 16 inside naturally!!! 8) 8) 8)

I wonder how accurate that outside temp reading is??? :? :?

Scrolling dot matrix screen that says "I know, thats why I bought it" that you could flash on when people are looking at the car admiringly.

A door handle capping that you can rest your elbow on and that won't be a git to clean... Cloth is not the best!
