This expert's thinking is precisely the reason we don't get nice things in this country.
Some people here are stuck with their deposit/down payment. For others, I would strongly advise them Not to place orders. Yes, the car is nice but if you look at quality & features you're getting and at what price point, it is a horrific deal.
So stop placing orders, You can certainly wait few months and drive your existing civic/corolla, but Honda's assembly line slowing down/coming to a halt will send a strong message to Honda (and other assemblers) that times are changing and they can't just slap people around anymore. Otherwise, I expect the same old same old.
I myself have decided not to place order for new civic and stay with my existing 9th gen civic, unless I see quality/feature improvements.
