Once you logged in, there should be a black/gray box at the top left of a fourm page right above the header that lists the threads in the forum. You won't see it on the Active Topics page, but it should be there on any of the regular forums pages.I'm sorry to hijack this post but where do I start new posts? I have registered and created a user name and password yet I do not see any location for starting new threads on any of these pages. I can respond to existing posts but not start new ones. Wouls someone please give me a proccedure on how to do this?
Americans do buy hatchbacks, they just call them CUV's...I signed up for Update on the Hatchback.....and really am looking forward to them bringing out more info on it. Anyone else on the Update list for the hatchback? I've heard it said, "Americans don't buy hatchbacks". I wonder just how true that actually is?
What if your CUV was basically a hatchback raised a tiny bit higher off the ground?Americans do buy some hatchbacks that aren't CUV's.
What they don't buy much are manual transmissions.
That really narrows the choices for me, because I want a hatchback (not CUV) with a manual transmission.
That's more like it! The previous generation Euro Civic Hb is pretty horrendous looking to my eyes.See these pics for example, these are the civic type R spy shots and are a confirmed civic hatchback. Take off the giant wing and fenders and you see what the hatchback will look like. These are the new one, not the older renders out there.
There are other photos out there from the last few months that are this/these cars being tested in some areas.
I'm currently driving a 2007 Honda Fit Sport 5MT. It's been reliable, economical, very practical (this little car has tremendous cargo capacity with the "magic seats") and fun to drive. My chief gripes are wind/road noise at interstate speeds and short gearing -- 4000RPM @ 82MPH. After 112k miles, I'm ready to replace it.HRV LOL...
From the pictures Razer posted it appears that the Hatch is more of a Lift back.I'm hoping the new Civic is real hatchback that maximizes cargo capacity rather than emphasizing style as a liftback. If the latter, I just might go with the Sportwagen. Nothing else in the category can haul as much gear.
