Car review: Honda Civic | Technology | The Observer

You can now see out the back, and they've even thrown in a window wiper, though nobody had complained about that. The new suspension means it feels supple without any loss of that racy road feel. The softer ride comes from fluid-filled compliance bushings. You know they are fluid-filled, as you hear the liquid sloshing about as if you are in an idling speed boat or have drunk too much tea.
Nobody complained about no rear wiper !!! :facepalm:

The sloshing sound is now the fluid suspension and not the underfloor fuel tank !!! :facepalm:

Some of it appears to have been lifted straight from the Honest John review.

I had to chuckle whilst reading... fluid filled suspension sloshing about?! :lol:

Although I personally don't miss the rear wiper at all on the 8G.

Ditto. There's not much point having them tbh.

Ive had my FN2 for 5 years and i still dont feel the need for a rear wiper.


I think a lot of motoring journalists who got to drive the car for a few hours would always note the absence of a wiper, but in reality they dont own the car long enough to realise you dont need one.
