16 EXT Coupe

The whole new car buying experience has been a journey! Bought a 9th gen 2015 ext 4 dr civic brand new in Feb. Went to puck it up and the battery was dead. 3 days later, the touch screen went out. At 9000 miles, the transmission blew and the torque converter went out :D . Thank god for the warranty! 2 days after getting it back from the dealership last month, the tire pressure sensors went off. The tire pressure was perfect... Needless to say I traded that thing in. Finally decided on the 2016 coupe. Not gonna lie, I was worried about having another cvt transmission but I bought a 7 year, 120,000 mile warranty just in case. Love the styling and it runs great so far, so we'll see. That being said, if you can upgrade to the turbo - do it! So worth it!!! My boyfriend owns a 2014 veloster 1.6l turbo and this baby can keep up. Love, Love, Love!

Welcome to the forums! Which color did you choose? Pictures? And how much was the extended warranty and through what provider?
That's a horrible start to ownership, it's along the lines of what i'd expect from a German car maker, not a Japanese car maker.

Hopefully you owned something Honda in the past since it will probably restore your faith in the brand.

Congrats on the new coupe!
Sounds like you bought a 9th gen lemon. Not that common but stinks when you get one. Did they refund you the 9th gen money?
