    Good news! The boot is slowly getting easier to close... I guess the mechanism is adapting to the slamming...

    @omar_575 congrats on the new car! Very interesting to read your detailed review in this post. I also have a 9th gen/2013 civic (mine's black) and wanted to add a few things:

    1) I had the boot closing issue too (it's apparently so common that I wonder if it comes as a 'feature') However the Honda center guy here in Isb took <5 minutes to fix it by tightening/loosening some nuts. I'd say, best to get it fixed from them rather than trying anything at home.

    2) A major, MAJOR gripe I have with the car is the gear shifting (mine's an automatic tranny). The shifting feels jerky and just sad on lower gears especially. My other auto experience has been with a City Steermatic 1.5, and I don't think I ever felt a gear change in that car. So much so that I thought there was something wrong with the Civic, and had it inspected by Honda techies, but they said 'this is normal since the Civic does not have CVT, because logon ne CNG lagwani hoti hai na, so it has a progressive shift system that supports CNG better'. *utter disbelief* People who've driven a CVT may feel the difference more.

    3) After ~3k km, I'm getting between 8.5-9 ish within city (Isb/Rwp) with a light-ish foot and economy mode, but much better on the motorway with cruise control.

    4) I've been pointing out the 'orange peel' issue with the paint on other threads also, and even wrote to Honda Atlas about it. Khair, I've seen over time that there are some very skilled and very helpful members here, and with their help one can make do quite nicely with this nonetheless. For example I would strongly recommend any advice from my virtual ustaad @ahmad_yar bhai, who's been helping a detailing/car-care noob like me going out of his way

    A clarification: This is not to say I am unhappy with the car all in all. Alhamdolillah

    All the best!

    Excellent experience bro. We travelled on the motorway yesterday and there was hardly any road noise. And they're extremely comfortable. They're worth it

    Thanks for a detailed review of the problems you're facing...
    1) I find that the Boot closing issue is slowly resolving. Or maybe I've got used to placing both hands on either side of the honda logo of the boot and close it gently. Lol, it should definitely be mentioned as a feature
    2) I haven't noticed any jerks although I drove on low gears on the mountains. But now I will be wary of this point and heck it again.
    3) that's weird, the mileage is supposed to be around 14 in the city, no? Other members please shed some light on this.
    4) the orange peel appearance would be less visible in black color wasay. What have u used exactly to 'mask' it?

    However, when I used to shift gears in my manual '05 civic in the same inclines, it did give a jerk.

    Just got back from a trip to Bhurban. The drive was extremely comfortable and the road noise was negligible thanks to the advan db v550 tyres.
    It as quite hard to keep it at 120km/hr though. If you don't see the speedometer it easily goes to 145-150 without anyone noticing. And believe me, my family is very vigilant in this sense but he hardly felt it. I get a similar feeling of comfort at high speeds in the toyota camry taxis of dubai.

    We found the seats extremely comfortable. The rear passenger seats are moulded to fit the contours of your body and the cloth is like that of a high quality sofa. Notice that the cloth is in every nook and corner of the backseats, unlike the '05 civic which had "bare areas" which were not very comfortable especially on long drives.
    The only problem is that the cloth is like 'reshmee' cloth and tends to irritate your skin especially when u have come from the heat and are sweating.
    The interior is too light colored to leave it as such, so the seats do need a cover. So if you travel to places like Bhurban and villages where there is reddish mud which doesn't come off easily, it's best to put seat covers on.

    We also noticed that the front arm rest plus compartment can be moved forwards and backwards accommodating the drivers arm. I still think that the drivers seat should have had a separate arm rest as it's still uncomfortable especially when the left arm is free in the automatic version.

    The navigation system worked flawlessly and we loved the option in which u could see how far the next rest area/services were. It even showed details of roads in bhurban.

    The cruise control worked really well. It's important to bear in mind that once u set the cruise control and Press the + button, the speed will increase by 1.6km/hr (as mentioned in the owners manual). And to increase/decrease the speed, press the button once rather than continuously pressing it. Because even when u stop pressing it, the speed will keep increasing or decreasing. So one press of the button for 1.6km/hr increase or decrease in speed.

    The storage space has also increased. The rear passengers have their own storage compartments in the doors and the back area is huge! And the front of the dash is more accommodating than the previous model.

    The steering wheel can not only be adjusted vertically but also horizontally like a track day car. Adjustment is very important on the motorway because if you can't see ethe speedometer, you won't realise how fast you're going unil u see the flashing lights if a police car. Weirdly enough, the speedometer is clearly visible to all the passengers except the driver, unless he adjusts the steering.
