Is the 2.0L Earthdreams 4 cylinder all new or is it currently in production in another global Honda? Also is the cvt all new or a carryover from the current Civic or already in production in another global Honda vehicle?


We already know the 1.5T with a unique cvt is a all new.


I want to gauge waiting for the 2017 model year to work out any possible bugs.

Turbo motors are a different beast altogether. Many turbo platforms use iridiums and I suspect this won't be an exception. 70-100K is the norm, depending on output. Higher output platforms like the 2.0T might see shorter intervals (80-90K vs. 100K on the 1.5T).

With everything so new with the 10th gen., I'm waiting until the 2018 MY before making a purchase decision. After all of the years I've been buying cars, I'd never buy a first year production car. With all of the electronics in the newer models, I'm willing to wait two years before parting with my money. As I've stated before, other consumers can be the guinea pigs. I'll sit back and watch.

Kind of glad i'm stuck in a lease for another 23 months. That gives the new civic time to get tested for initial reliability of all the new parts and such as well as time for me to save up a nice big down payment for when i finance my next civic. Waiting also promises a slightly better deal on the car too since it won't be "ALL NEW ALL WOW!!!!" haha. In the mean time however i will bemoan my 14' coupe everytime i see a new civic driving past me. haha.

Ah, Robb's point brings me to my pressing concern. I need a car asap--But I'm ga ga in love with this next gen civic sedan. I want one now!
I'm asking y'all for best guesses based on previous roll-outs:
1) Will there be limited supply the first week they hit dealerships? Might I even have hard time getting any car (I want a sedan touring) because others will get theirs for having put down deposits? When will supply not be a problem? After a month?
2) After about how much time will they be willing to negotiate price? First week, nothing? A month?
Come on people! I need best guesses. thanx

Based on my 10+ years experience with buying/leasing honda's....

1. Supply could be tight for a little while. I'd say first month or two. Since you want a touring you might be better off as the lower trims are what sell in volumes, so a touring might be easier to come by. My best suggestion, go to honda and talk to a dealer about what they've got on order and how long they think stock will be short handed on certain models. They might even be able to get you set up for the next round of orders or set a touring aside for you to see if you're serious about buying ASAP.

2. Ah, honda and pricing... honda's sell... no incentives, no discounts, no anything honda's always sell. Even cars like the current 9th gen are short on incentives and offers and honda's willingness to deal is marginal at best. The only time honda really hits the discounts big time is clearance events (so this time next year for the 2016 models) and they also have presidents day and auto show events, etc in spring/summer that offer some good deals usually. My best advice... bidding war. Contact 2 dealers. Get serious about buying, make sure they both have all their cards on the table and get them bidding for your purchase against eachother. That'll almost always promise you the best deal.

Hope this helps. I'm sure others will chime in with their experiences too. I've leased 4 honda's (07, 10, 13, 14) sometimes with money down and sometimes not. And with 2 different dealers. So my experience with them is pretty good i think.

Have you tried to put down a deposit already? most will take even a $100... if you're not picky and you put your name down I think you'll be fine...
