i bought the civic vti manual one and to my surprise the finish and quality of the interior was way inferior to of them the older ones ,i m talking about 06 or 05's the inner feel of the new civic is shallow as well as most of them have a problem of passenger side window channel i m saying many as i have 2 of them and faced same with both , secondly when you have to close the trunk its specific point where you need to apply force otherwise it wont close. if u take the car to dealership they will tell you abt the window fault to be there in many of them . now the drive experience the drive is superb smooth and acceleration is very decent and the feel of steering wheel is like it makes you feel in control of the vehicle totally. fuel economy is also good . but tyres TYRESSSSS oh my Allah they have reduced the quality of the tyres and at the top of it after charging 1.6 million you walk away with no alloy wheels in the tyre but lame wheel cups n unreliable tyres . i got tyres of one changed and the othr one is on the origionals and driving the later one is like horrible it gives you a feeling of a URAN TASHTARI. all from my side forgot one thing the audio unit is good in quality. ASH TRAY it took me 2 weeks to figure out ashtray i mean its a seperate cup which can be misplaced eaisly and hence negative marking of the car on that ground.
