Even more impressive will be how Honda improves power output and fuel efficiency of this engine in the coming years. As always they never go full all out and always leave room for growth

The only questions at that point are; when and exactly what kind of improvements

Thumbs down 2016 Civic is HORRIBLE- stains like nothing I have every seen!

I wanted to trade it in less than a month after purchasing because the fabric is so disgusting. I was literally at the dealer in tears. My brand new car that I was paying a lot of money for looked 10 years old within 10 days of purchasing it.

I love Honda and I have always been very satisfied with my Honda purchases. I bought the 2016 Civic with tan cloth seats and within a week, the interior looked like it was 10 years old. You can't put ANYTHING on a seat without it leaving some type of stain. If you try to clean it, it leaves watermark looking stains. I have had leather and cloth in my previous Honda purchases (and other brands) and never had issues like this. I understand if I was putting dirty items on the seats or something unusual, but I don't. I am very disappointed and I can't stand getting in the car because it looks awful. I stopped by the dealership less than a month after purchasing it, and the salesman acknowledged that it looked bad but no resolution. I stopped by a few weeks ago and asked if complaints had been issued. He said he hadn't heard anything. I asked him to look at the seat and again, acknowledged that it was "awful." Any other?

The dealer has no fix for known issue with keyless smart entry. This forum won't allow me to post link to service bulletin.
After car door is locked for ten minutes, comfort access does not allow operation. No attempt was made to repair under warranty by the dealer.

When I start my car by remote, I wish the parking lights would remain on so I know that the car is indeed running.

My wife saw this coming when she turned off to the Cosmic Blue paint. We could only get it in the lighter fabric and she was dead set against that. We are glad we went with black on black.
These days though they make seat covers as luxurious as you wish to spend on them. You should consider it to prevent them from getting worse than they are.

She managed to hear the horn, but it sounded like the automotive equivalent of a 2 year old child wailing in the supermarket checkout because mom or dad wouldn't buy them a candy bar.

Honda did put a boatload of features in the new Civic, especially in the Touring. But they really dropped the ball on a few inexpensive items that many would appreciate them adding or improving (the anemic horn, the glove compartment with the door that crudely flops down and lacks a light and a lock, no sunglasses compartment, etc.). If they were trying to save money, for example I could survive without rear seat heaters in a mainstream compact car. But off all of those things, the horn is the most frustrating to me.

If they haven't got a horn upgrade yet, they need to! Absolutely the most pathetic sounding horn I have EVER heard... it's not a warning device, it's a cause for getting laughed at (as you get into an accident because your horn couldn't be heard anyway!) Horrible!
