    Default 2012 Honda Civic-Worst car flop of the year

    2012 Honda Civic.....

    Like the new Jetta, the latest Civic was designed only for the U.S. market. The 2012 redesign plummeted in Consumer Reports scores from one of the best small cars to one of the worst, Fisher says. Its nimble handling was replaced with a “soggy” suspension, and braking distances are too long. The interior quality also declined, with lots of hard plastics throughout the cabin.

    Hmmm... So 2012 Honda Civic is the "Worst car flop of 2011".

    Edit: Just noticed it is in the Professional Forums.

    fishy or shrimpy - the new civic is beyond hideous, its one of those situations when a higher ups college drop out bhateeja is appointed to run the design and surprise Chacha jee Honda with his new model.

    Usually ends up like this.

    I still am keeping my fingers crossed till the time it comes to Pakistan. Crap elsewhere usually becomes a hit here.

    Waise if I remember correctly, taking about Pakistan, people loved the 1999-2000 model which wasn't too much different from the previous model. The 7th Generation was not liked by the masses in the beginning. But now people still love the face-lifted version of 7th Gen. When 8th Generation a.k.a. Reborn was launched, people didn't like it either in the very beginning because of certain reasons and liked the 7th Gen. more. With the passage of time, they fell in love with it as well and are now not liking the 9th Gen. Lets see whether they fall in love with the 9th Gen. again or not.

    The reviews are showing a major drop in the popularity graph of Civic which is not nice. Was not expecting Honda to lose its place.

    p.s. This is my observation based on the remarks and comments of different people I witnessed during all these years.

    That's sad, that's really sad. Some people (including me) unlike you have feeling for cars.

    Very true .... Even here on PW, the well known die hard fans of Honda are still advocating the 2012 model & trying to prove it to be better than BMW 7 series. May be they are expecting some sort of profit share from Honda in its sale or they themselves deigned this model
