    Default 8th generation Civic fan and owner club

    the 2006 generation Honda split the model into two different platforms, one primarily for the home market and North America and the other designed for the European market using a simpler rear suspension from the Honda Fit and more aggressive styling. As of 2006, a total of 16.5 million Civics had been sold worldwide, with 7.3 million of them in the United States.[5] Although the North American and the home market model differ externally, they are mechanically identical. The European model is available as a three and five-door hatchback while the Japanese/North American model is available as either sedan or coupe. Both Si and Type-R trim levels continue although the Japanese and European Type-R while sharing the same size engine are mechanically different. In the US an improved version of the Si tuned by Honda tuner Mugen is offered featuring cosmetic alterations and changes to the suspension and exhaust system. The Acura version of the Civic not only received the design change, but also saw a new nameplate, changing from the Acura EL to the Acura CSX. In Japan starting March 2006, the Honda dealership sales channels called Honda Primo, Verno, and Clio were disbanded, and combined into one retail dealership called Honda Cars.

    Now I'm no expert when it comes to car engines, but our '12 prosmatec suddenly started to vibrate upon starting one day, and RPMs also rose as if someone was revving it. Driver cleaned out the air filter after a couple of days and the start up problem was gone, but it's still there as soon as the car is shifted to R like it was before. No problems while driving whatsoever. Any ideas anyone?
    Sorry for a long post btw.

    Well, both have their Pros and Cons so I am gonna put down main things to consider and do a direct comparison.
    Pros for 8th Gen: It has an overall better driving pleasure, it hugs the road better, corners much better, it's agile and sharp specially at turns, it is quite confident in driving under rash conditions compared to 9th.
    Pros for 9th Gen: It has better ride comfort, interior is better, fuel consumption is better, gadgets are better, headlight illumination is better, easier and convenient to drive in daily use, the braking system has a better force and response (please do keep in minding braking force and grip are two different things)

    Now the driving difference mainly comes down to the way it feels, just the feeling of your hands on the steering and movement of the car, I have taken 8th Gen till 221 kmph on stock 195/65-15 tyre size and I didn't feel scared. Whereas this is exactly where the 9th Gen lacks. On 195/65-15 Yokos despite all balancing and everything the car feels bouncy and in the air/afloat. And at 140 it gave the feeling which 8th does at 190. Then I switched to 205/60-15 Yokos and the car got much better, less bouncy and was okay till 170, but beyond that it's too scary in the 9th but never on the 8th.

    In a nutshell: forgetting the cruise control on motorway, I would simply like to take 8th Gen for the trip instead of 9th. Taking turns on Murree and Nathiagali roads 8th is much better. For driving a bit in the mood I wouldn't want 9th. For everyday use and peaceful driving. I would simply want the 9th Gen. The 9th could have been as good for fun as well in driving if it wasn't so high.

    Disclaimer: please don't think these ordinary family cars are meant for over speeding. Sometimes you are feeling stupid, try not to go into that state of mind. Drive safe

    BUT: Overall preference, 8th Gen. It's easier to let a 9th Gen go but not 8th


    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=272964
    Very well summarised. For me, 8th gen was love. I had a daily commute of around 216 km from lahore to khanqadograh on my 2011 Modern Steel 8th Gen. It was a manual. Damn I miss the feeling of shifting through the gears, just something about a proper manual gearbox that an auto can never replace. I drove the car 180,000km in three years. My route took me from phase 5 dha ring road entrance to babu sabu exit and onto M2 all the way to khanqadograh. Those were the days man, just myself, my 8th gen and straight tarmac. Sometimes I would cruise, sometimes I would stretch it to 200-205kmph.

    Sadly, I had to let it go. My wife said she's never seen me so sad and upset after I sold my car. I almost cried when the buyer drove away. I've kept all civics starting from 5th gen all the way to 9th. And now booked the turbo Alhamdulilah. But the 8th will always be special

And what problem may arise due to this .car is civic 2012 prosmatec and milage is 70k. One more thing my car engine vibrates in 2nd gear and when it shifts to 3rd vibration disappears . And the vibration is only in 1000 to 2000rpm if rpm is high no vibration . Is it the problem with transmission or engine foundaion.
    at 70k u should change ur transmission fluid and also clean the catalytic converter for the cars optimum performance also pit a new fuel filter

    After the 8th Gen only 10th has made a place in my heart. Let's see how it drives. 8th to 9th was a half generation gap but 9th to 10th is a giant leap and feels like a 2 generation gap.

    I second that. I bought a Vezel Hybrid Z after my 8th gen. Never liked it. Sold it after 6 months. Just like yourself, I have high expectations from the 10th gen. Personally I'm not a fan of the cvt transmission. I don't like the way it feels. But from what I've read and watched on YouTube the cvt in the civic drives really well. So let's see inshaAllah. Really excited.

    Sir same here regarding CVT. I kind of like the jerk and punch on a Prosmatec when you floor it. CVT feels like added noise. Hope Honda gives a responsive one on 10th

    I recently had Civic's rear brakepads changed (Nissin) from Honda Pitstop Cavalry..Now, I've noticed that when i start the car I hear a weird scratch sound while braking. The sound disappears after running the car for 10 minutes or so. So it's there only when the car is cold.

    Secondly, I've noticed weird sound (screeeetch) coming from Engine while accelerating specially when the rpm is > 2500.

    What could be the issue?

    My 2007 Prosmatec gives around 9 with AC. Its my wife's daily driver and she drives fast, and when I use it the consumption is even worse as I cant help flooring it - feels so much fun after my car.

    Yes i had same problem twice. On Reverse there will be some vibrations and rpm drops slightly. This is due to broken engine mount.
